HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Asian looks dominated the new collections introduced at the recent spring wholesale furniture market in High Point, thanks in part to the wide availability of exotic materials and the continuing interest in feng shui. Big names including Thomasville, Bassett and Broyhill introduced Asian-inspired collections, and woven fibers adorned everything from hassocks to headboards in other showrooms. Straight, spare lines make the Asian look versatile, allowing it to blend with a wide range of other furniture styles.

In fact, furniture makers have been at it for so long that many of the copies now are antiques, too.But suddenly -- thanks to shifting demographics and the current economy -- everything old is new again, and interest in antique reproductions is high.Traditional furnishings of all sorts are popular now with middle-aged baby boomers who are hungry for a sense of heritage and nostalgic for an earlier, simpler time.
