What style trends did you notice at market?
We received positive feedback from customers on our use of colors in the showroom. We used a lot of dramatic, black York wallcoverings, and I mixed in bright colors that really popped next to our cerused oak and natural cane collections. It was a big hit! A creative way to show off how versatile our neutrals can be, without going the standard monochromatic direction, is by incorporating cheerful fabrics and colorful artwork!
Featured SKUs: Etagere – Young CO; Chairs - Monroe WH, CO
What Worlds Away new introductions garnered the most interest?
I would say the Young fluted etagere in cerused oak grabbed a lot of attention thanks to the stunning scalloped detail on the doors, but the Monroe handwoven dining chair was by far our biggest seller.

What new introduction is your personal favorite?
How would you style it?
The Oslo coffee table in cerused oak. I love the thick top with cross base. It can be used in a single application as the star of the show or in a set of three where you have a lot of space to fill. It’s a statement table without overpowering a room and is fantastic for any transitional space.
