The International Home Furnishings Market held in High Point, North Carolina in October 2003 highlighted specific applications of fabrics to furniture and mid-20th century retro looks. While, there was an abundance of bright colors such as red, yellow and crisp blues that were aimed at attracting younger consumers, beige and shades of brown were not front and center in showrooms. Moreover, stripes in bold colors and scale were used as feature fabrics rather than as secondary coordinates. On the other hand, high-tech fabrics were used in the residential side of the market. Outdoor fabrics with sun- and stain-resistant properties were also used in indoor furniture such as decorative pillows and slipcovers.
