I just got back from three very exciting days at High Point Spring Furniture Market. The best way to describe it: Disney World for the design trade. The Furniture Market is a twice-yearly event in High Point, NC where home furnishing and accessory manufacturers congregate to display their new lines and designers come to drool. It takes both a determined spirit and some very impressive time management skills to see it all but trust me, like a kid in Disney World, you make it happen. Comfortable shoes are always the first thing I pack and it is because of those comfortable shoes and an iPhone that I’m able to share with you a representative sample of some of the best highlights from High Point Market 2013 along with some of my reactions and musings on each piece.
1. Maze End Table from Regina Andrew
Loving the shape of these tables. Very fun! Right away, I picture these as night tables in a teen bedroom.
2. One Step Paint from Amy Howard at Home
I am beyond excited about this new One Step Paint product. Say goodbye to all the prep work in refinishing furniture because this paint let's you get straight to the repainting. Now to find something to refinish…
3. Botanical Prints from The Natural Light Company
Such a striking wall display! The detail in these prints is nothing short of amazing. Very rich in feel without a rich price tag – love that!
4. Cici Obelisk in Crushed Shell from Made Goods
How about the crushed shell finish on this piece? Absolutely stunning!
5. Edward Ottoman from Gabby
The old European look was everywhere this Market and it shows in this eye-catcher of an ottoman by Gabby.
6. Small Globe Chandelier from Eloquence
Continuing with the old European look, this chandelier from Eloquence literally pulled me into the Eloquence showroom for a closer look where I discovered it's also available in two additional sizes!
7. Bama Gueridon Accent Table from Lucy Smith
Such a cute end table! Like jewelry, it's the perfect little something to complete a look. Did I mention it comes in an array of finishes and can even be topped in a mirror or antique mirror? Plus, you can tailor it to fit almost any project.
8. Finial from A&B Home
Love at first sight is the only way to describe my connection with this finial. I didn't stand a chance after taking in the detail.
9. Taupe Garden Vase Table Lamp from The Natural Light Company
I love the detail on the base – so elegant!
10. Wolfgang Chandelier from Mr. Brown
I'm in love with the fretwork frame and the Gesso finish detail, hard plaster finish over wood. A favorite, for sure!
Disney World, see?
