Aside from meeting David Bromstad, seeing the latest in gifts and accessories was the highlight of the Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Market. One huge trend that I noticed was inspirational quotes.
Designers and companies put uplifting words on just about everything, from clocks to accent pillows and rugs. Many accessories had heart-warming messages, while some of them were more lighthearted.
My favorite part of market was all the innovative tableware ideas. This plate with a built-in wine glass holder is genius for cocktail parties, and I would love the quote wine glasses for my next girls’ wine night. Bold colors were everywhere — the polka dots on the ceramic tableware really catch the eye, and the eco-friendly bamboo birdhouses are top on my list for the gardeners out there.
What do you think about these trends? Would you use any of these accessories in your home?
