The semi-annual Market at High Point North Carolina just closed, much to the delight of the aching feet of over 75000 designers and other professionals who attend. Fortunately for those of us who are not able to attend this spectacle, there are plenty of "style spotters" who share the new trends that we can expect to see in the near future. Along with plenty of mixed metals, Pantone's color of the year and the resurgence of brass accents, one other trend that stood out was the use of nature inspired accents on furniture. Tree branches wound their way across the front of a buffet, wood grain took center stage on case goods and botanical and garden motifs were visible in all forms from textiles to hand-painted designs to the metal floral sculptures of Tommy Mitchell.

The beauty of nature is nothing new at Martin Pierce Hardware. In fact, some of our most popular hardware designs were inspired by our natural surroundings and we have discussed that often on this blog. One of our very first collections is the Hedgerow collection, inspired by the shrubs and greenery in our small hometown in England. This unique design is available on both hardware and custom furniture pieces. Here you can see the Hedgerow chair being used in the Four Seasons Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and it fits in so nicely with the beautiful and mountainous surroundings.
Included in this custom furniture line are beds, dressers, dining chairs and other case goods. You can view our entire custom furniture collection by visiting our furniture site.
