Why is High Point Market a big deal?

For the interior design world and professionals High Point Market is the Fashion Week of the fashion world!  The average home owner will turn to the popular catalogs like Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Frontgate and Restoration Hardware for design ideas and inspiration.

Yet the design professionals flock to North Carolina to see the latest trends from furniture to art to new fabric patterns and accessories. High Point is exclusive to design and industry professionals – likely these are items you will not find in chain stores. These are the statement pieces your interior designer will add to your home that will make you and your guests jaw drop. They are unique, beautiful and worth the trip.

Now is the time to break away from everyone else in America, take a step up to a better room with unique items that truly fit your personality and style choices. From my most recent trip to High Point Market I have chosen to share a few photos of items that caught my attention. I will be returning to High Point Market in the Fall with a new mission to find items that are ‘conversation pieces’ and share with you while on the trip. So make sure you are following me on my Facebook Business Page for the latest and greatest as I tour the High Point Market in October.  For anyone planning a redesign contact me ASAP so we can discuss the items I can source for you while at Market in October.  This is a unique opportunity for me to be at High Point and source some of the world’s best products for your exclusive design.

As always thanks for following my blog, until next time!

Highpoint Furniture Market Trip in April 2013

What an exciting trip!!  High Point Market is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world.  With over 2,000 exhibitors and 75,000 attendees it’s almost impossible to see it all. There were tens of thousands of new product introductions and I was going non-stop for 4 days taking it all in. If you can’t find it in High Point…it probably doesn’t exist.

FAMOUS PEOPLE SIGHTINGS: At the market parties there was delicious delectable and cocktails galore. I had the pleasure of meeting Alexander Julian at the Jonathan Charles showroom and Jane Seymour was promoting her new furniture line a collaboration with Amini.


Newest Interior Design Trends

It was so thrilling seeing the new trends, design ideas, furniture, accessories and much more.

What was hot? Using reclaimed wood furniture, mixing old with new, combining materials like a wooden slab top console with stainless steel legs and incorporating industrial parts into pieces.



Introduced last market and still going strong is Alexander Julian furniture line that creates a unique collection of case goods inspired by his famous menswear designs. Translating his signature vision of rich textiles and dynamic colors into his furniture collection, each item from the 12-piece collection utilizes elements from bow ties to custom made blazer buttons for drawer pulls. His collection includes a whimsical inlaid “over sized button” occasional table creatively supported by 3 faux sewing needles.  Some of his case good pieces have “shirting stripe” inlay fronts and crotch walnut sides, signature horn button pulls and classic paisley drawer linings.  Also, extremely unique are his satinwood necktie and bow tie coffee tables.
