1. INTRO We weren’t able to make it to the October High Point Furniture Market show because we had just returned from our adventures at the Roundtop Antiques Fair and had to get down to business. Good thing we have lots of talented and knowledgeable designer buddies who would fill us in on the latest and greatest trends. We asked them to call in and give us their top finds so that we could share them with you.
2. BACKGROUND ON HIGH POINT MARKET You probably all know this but in case you are new to the design world, here’s the scoop of what the High Point Furniture Market is. The High Point Market held in High Point, North Carolina, is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, with over 10 million square feet and roughly 2000 exhibitors throughout about 180 buildings. It is put on semi-annually and it’s a must destination to be “in the know”.
