We scoured the showrooms, perused the stands, felt every pillow, “ooh-ed” and “ahh-ed” at some of our favorite brands’ new inclusions at AmericasMart this July, just so we could come back inspired and ready to give you the inside look at what is hot. And let us tell you, this trend is for the aesthete within you!

Shiny surfaces, exotic materials, rich tones, and silky textures were all key ingredients to this years’ most cutting edge pieces – it was all about luxe. From bloggers to designers to editors, we all agreed that our favorite places had a look that hinted at a faraway provenance. Whether it was a small domino set made of inlayed bone, or a foxed mirrored etagere, there was always something a little unexpected and glamorous about them.

It was so much fun to make our way through AmericasMart‘s showrooms and see some seriously stunning pieces in person, not to mention run into some of our favorite designers! But just so you can get a taste at home, here are 6 of our favorites from this summer’s show. And if that’s not enough be sure to follow the hashtag #ATLMKTFAV to see what the top tastemakers were crushing over!
