High Point Market Roundup

I’ve been to a number of great design shows this past year, but my recent visit to the fall High Point Market was a highlight. North Carolina has a unique charm—between the food, landscape, and easy southern pace—and the show itself was full of cool furniture, interesting vignettes, and a number of other displays that caught my eye. Overall, this was a really inspiring trip!

The market, which focuses on residential home furnishings, is a great place to spot upcoming trends. I spent several days touring the many showrooms with my friend Karen, a fellow designer. I found some great items for projects I’m currently working on.

Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite  displays and discoveries from the market:

About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
