Summer Classics Showcases the Latest Designs at High Point

If you’re looking for the latest in design trends and new products, then there’s no place better than High Point Market. And this year’s fall market held October 14-18 did not disappoint. The retailers, designers, and magazine editors who visited the Summer Classics showroom to see the latest new looks all couldn’t believe how much the outdoors looked  like the indoors.

“I love how this Helena chair rocks and could totally see it being comfortable enough for my nursery,” said Haskell Harris, Style Director at Garden and Gun, who is pregnant with her first child. “What I love about Summer Classics is that there are so many options depending on your point of view. The furniture has a style with an interior quality it feels collected and influenced by the past that makes it special.”

The new upholstery lines, both the Helena and the Baldwin, were very well received in the showroom. “We love it when our customers come into the showroom and say that they can’t believe this is outdoor furniture,” says Schon Duke, Vice President of Sales. “So many of our collections have the customizable look of indoor.”


The new Helena Collection mixes well with the Ella Coffee Table.

In addition to the interest in the new upholstery outdoor pieces, the designers loved the new Roma Collection. They loved the clean lines and the use of the mix of materials and the comfort of the piece.

The showroom, which had a Hemingway style to it, showcased the wide collection of new fabrics offered. “Summer Classics has introduced more than 100 new fabrics for 2018,” said CEO and founder Bew White. “Blue is one of the biggest colors this year and we’ve got some great shades along with yellows, oranges, greens, black and whites and some great neutrals.”
