FROM LAND, FROM AIR AND FROM SEA, A ZOOLOGICAL influence descended upon High Point this season as animal forms were re-created in sculpture, furniture and soft goods. Safari themes are trending in unison with aquatic silhouettes, as modernity seizes center stage in this naturally selected lineup of design.
With rustic inspiration confronting a minimalist aesthetic, the rugged wilderness is tamed for today's interiors as bursts of color evoke the inherent playfulness of earth's inhabitants. The approach reveals the power of nature, but not before a charming, Arcadian appeal is realized.
