Collages shake things up.

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Collage looks continued to be a distinct category at the High Point furniture market last week, and texture, design and color were the keys to success.

Suzanne Fisher, merchandising for Clayton Marcus, said, "Collage has evolved from a patchwork type look to a more blended one." Leather, tapestry and chenille harmonized on one of the company's sofas.

Lane featured a French country look in bright blues and yellows in a large-scale floral print accented with two coordinating mini prints in the same colors.

Fabrics on a Norwalk country collage sofa were a check in sage and oatmeal, and a plaid in tomato and oatmeal, and all the colors united in a floral print on the seat cushions. The company also featured a collage of four fabrics, three damasks in shades of ivory, rose and loden, and an English linen print.

Pennsylvania House showed a more opulent collage look on a sofa covered in a deep taupe chenille satin stripe and ground, with accent pillows in a houndstooth damask and satin stripe in subdued burgundy, and a medallion tapestry in shades of both.
