TrendWatchHIGH POINT, N.C.—International Market Centers (IMC) has named the 49 companies that will take part in its popular TrendWatch program at High Point Market.

TrendWatch gives market attendees an inside look at leading trends in the home furnishings industry through an opening-day seminar and three on-site trend displays.

This market’s winners include B. Pila, Capel Rugs, Jamie Young Company, Kas Rugs, Nourison, Phillips Collection and Worlds Away.

Curated by Julie Smith Vincenti, a veteran editor and editorial director as well as founder of Nine Muses Media, the product displays reflect different themes and change each market. This market’s themes are BEYONDaries, Fearless & Flirty and Las Islas Bonitas, and the displays are located in the Suites at Market Square Lobby, the IHFC Green Lobby and the walkway between IHFC and Showplace near the Transportation Terminal. Vincenti will also deliver a keynote seminar, “TrendWatch: An Inside Look at the Future of Design,” on Saturday, Oct. 17, 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Suites at Market Square Seminar Room (SAMS 1-1014).
