I took all day Saturday to drive to High Point, but after a late start and some bad traffic, I was behind schedule before I even got out of town. I took a back road down to High Point, through Charlottesville, Lynchburg and Danville, where I spent the night. I was so tired and couldn’t face the final two hours in the dark.
Once I arrived in High Point, it was off and running. I started at Hickory Chair with a tour of the showrooms. There was a gathering for the social media types featuring Alexa Hampton, Mariette Himes Gomez, and Hable Construction.
Alexa’s rooms were chic and elegant. The colour scheme was red, white and black.
From Hickory, we wandered over to Design Legacy for Heather Clawson’s book signing. They had some really fun items, combining architectural salvage and imported items.
Finally, late in the day, I ended up at Van Thiel & Co. and their unusual and varied collection of items. There were such great colours and they had taken great care to have an exquisite showroom. Everywhere you looked, there was some intriguing piece – like this set of animals from the Chinese years. Speaking of China… look at this wall of china.Monday is the breakfast with Christian Siriano, Thom Felicia and Lela Rose. Plus a lot more! Stay tuned.
