Thousands of designers and furniture manufacturers recently attended the 2019 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Over 9000 brands of home furnishings and decor were on display. These are the main themes and trends at the show.

Layers of Texture

A variety of textures dominated the Atlanta market. The layers at the show were nature-inspired with neutral color schemes.

Velvet Upholstery

Another texture seen everywhere at the market was velvet. Velvet going into 2019 will be more sophisticated. Instead of bright colors, the show featured more earthy tones.


Furniture has been very squared off lately and designers at the show were looking to change this by featuring beautiful furniture pieces that incorporated strong curved features.

Relaxed European Inspiration

Furniture manufacturers featured simple European inspired pieces that were made from natural fibers and eco-friendly materials.

Hand Crafted Artful Pieces

People love a good conversation piece and something handmade and unique is the perfect way to create that interest. The show featured a variety of unique handcrafted furniture and art displays.
