The Best of High Point Market: Spring 2018

{Suzanne Kasler‘s Paris Apartment Collection Marks her 10th Anniversary with 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, 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.

I came away from this market feeling energized and inspired. I found some beautiful new pieces and having had a wonderful time, but was exhausted by the end of it! This season, color– whether pink, green, or peacock blue, seemed to reign supreme and I am happy to report that classic design is alive and well. It seemed to be more about the mix between traditional and modern rather than the contrived, strictly modern looks that so many people got wrapped up in the past few years.

{Mark D. Sikes‘ collection for Henredon is a modern take on classic designs. This time around, Mark decided to “go green” and dressed his beautiful space in a variety of verdant fabrics in varying shades of green. The result was fresh and inspired.}

{The Visual Comfort showroom is always a must for me. This time around, these modern sconces by Aerin caught my eye. Aren’t they chic?]

{The New Orleans-based lighting designer, Julie Neill debuted a new collection for Visual Comfort which includes some favorites from her regular collection, including the Diego Chandelier shown here as well as several new designs exclusive to the Visual Comfort collaboration.}

{I happened upon this chic grouping of natural fiber and iron furniture at Gabby Home.}

{The Antiques & Design Center in Houston is among my favorite stops in High Point. After showroom after showroom of new things and decorated sets, it is refreshing to go the antiques center and find unique, old things. It’s a wonderful palate cleanser and there are wonderful things to be found, some of which are coming home with me.}

{How fabulous are these antique French corner chairs I spotted? I love that they were stripped and bleached.}

{Preppy brand, Oomph Home introduced a lovely new line of pretty vanities. I can’t wait to use this little scalloped number in a client’s powder bathroom!}

{One of my favorite finds at Market was this stunning series of Swedish botanicals from Ornis Gallery.}

{These vibrant Anglo-Indian botanicals are by the same artist as the botanicals in Lee Radziwill’s bedroom– fabulous!}

{One of my favorite rug vendors, Kings House had some wonderful rugs that we are planning to use for a client’s home as well as this vibrant stunner.}
