For me High Point Market is a time to experience and explore all things Interior Design. I use my time at market to see as much as possible and know that I will walk away with insight and inspiration to fuel my creativity in my design business. I wrote about this in my guest post over at Building Moxie check it out---> What's the big Deal about High Point?
High Point Furniture Market is the Fashion Week of Furniture! And how fitting that this years theme was Fashion Focused!
This is but a glimpse of the collection of bags and bits and pieces of stuff collected during my time at High Point Market. I will be sorting thru this for months ~ ;-) !
Each day as I walked thru showroom after showroom, exploring all of the new and exciting products, I would write down words to describe thoughts and styles that were visible, similar or made a visual impact on me during my time at Market. My list consisted of the following:
TUFTED | SILVER | TAILORED | BLUE | SILVER | NAILHEADS | NATURAL | RUSTIC INDUSTRIAL | GRAY | WHITE | TEAL | GREAT LIGHTING | STEAM PUNK | COLOR | MID-CENTURY STYLING | ORANGE | RUSTIC | DANISH STYLE | COLOR | TEXTURE | MUTED GOLD METAL | RED | FASHION DRIVEN | STYLIZED| TEAL | PURPLE | DRIFTWOOD|
In general what I saw was a great attention to detail and much thought given to the tailored aspect of furniture. A kind of mid-century meets new industrial with a sophisticated flare. Be sure to check out My #HPmkt Fall 2012 Pinterest Board
Here are some images I took to capture my experience, I hope you enjoy and would love your thoughts and comments!
Part of the whole High Point Market Experience is the evening center stage entertainment. Here my sister and I are hanging out in the crowd. Is that Mom right there behind us? Good times, good friends and family make High Point Market a time to remember!
Until next market
I will cherish my memories,
and my inspiration!
