Norwalk Furniture Springs Into the High Point Market With Four Color Trends Inspired by Natural Elements

NORWALK, Ohio – April 22, 2017 – From burnt brass and gold accents to warm charcoal and ebony, spring 2017 is all about bringing natural colors inspired by the earth into the home.

Norwalk highlights four themes in coordinated colors, patterns and textures for sofas, sectionals, chairs, ottomans, headboards and pillows. The more than 800 fabric choices include 130 new fabrics for Spring 2017.

“These colorways are a balance to the predominant grey family and the grey based neutrals and body cloths that have dominated the home furnishings the past 4-5 years,” said Caroline Hipple, president of Norwalk Furniture. “This year we will see dusty turquoise and mauve hues, deep elegant jades and warm natural neutrals that all translate effortlessly into already established interiors.”

Oasis II: This trend advances the strong direction toward sand colored neutrals, straw and camel complements, and burnished brass and golden accents. Giving these neutral hues an edge and energy, is the juxtaposition of charcoal and ebony. While still neutral, it is a warmer tone, which allows it to pair perfectly with burnished brass and golden hues. With patterns that are decidedly tribal and ethnic in their inspiration, you’ll see Kuba and mud cloths as well as raffia weaves and animal skin patterns more than ever before in the Norwalk showroom this Market.

Norwalk Naturals: While the many various brands and classifications of “performance fabrics” have surely been in the forefront of home furnishing for the last several years, at the same time designers and customers alike continue to demonstrate a strong ongoing preference for natural fibers and fabrics with minimal chemical treatments and environmentally sensitive constructions. Constructed from natural fibers like cotton, linen, and hemp, they are supple to the touch and soft and muted in color.

Pow-Wow: Southwestern style has always been popular in Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada—and for a brief time in the 70s it’s dusty turquoise and mauve hues and kitschy wagon wheel with cattle skull aesthetic had a major influence of home interiors across the nation. The inherent warmth of the rich mix of Indian, Mexican and European heritage that defines Santa Fe style is being redefined into a far more sophisticated blend of woods, leathers, furs and textiles that translate comfortably into a broad range of geographies.

Serene Celadon: First made popular in the 13th century with the import of Chinese ceramics into Europe, celadon, as a pottery glaze, and color, has always connoted calm, tradition and elegance. Ranging from the softest grey-blue green hues to deep jade, celadon pairs beautifully with deep burnished gold tones and traditional wood finishes. And most importantly, it offers another way to warm up omnipresent grey-hued upholstery.
