High Point Favorites: Fall 2016


{Suzanne Kasler for Hickory Chair}

Twice a year, I make the pilgrimage to High Point, North Carolina for the design industry’s biggest market event. It is a great way for me to discover new finds as well as visit favorite vendors and see their latest offerings. Between meetings, networking, spending time with friends, and speaking engagements, I spend my days seeking out pieces for current clients and finding fabulous new things for future projects. The market is truly massive encompassing many large buildings in downtown High Point and is very well-attended by people from all over the world. Naturally, everyone is drawn to things that speak to their individual taste and aesthetic, though there are always overarching, market-driven trends. Personally, I am not someone who follows trends as they are fleeting and I prefer to design spaces that are timeless and have an enduring quality.

At this market, I was most drawn to classic silhouettes and softer color palettes. There were exciting new collections by Darryl Carter for Baker, Mark D. Sikes for Henredon, Bungalow Classic for Highland House, and Christopher Spitzmiller for Visual Comfort, while tried and true favorites like Suzanne Kasler and Thomas O’Brien always deliver a great dose of inspiration as well! I have rounded up a few of the ideas and collections that caught my eye and that I hope to use in future projects. What are you most drawn to?ldv-high-point-oct-16-highland-house

  1. I like classic furniture as well…it’s so much easier to decorate around. Thanks for posting these great classic pieces and letting us know who made them. I’ll definitely check them out!
