High Point, Here I Come!

Once again I am honoured to have been selected as one of the Sponsored Bloggers for the Annual High Point Furniture Market. This will be the fourth trip I have taken to High Point and I now feel that I am actually comfortable finding my way around the Market. image

My trip is being sponsored by Hooker Furniture for the fourth time, and I am so pleased to be a part of the Hooker Furniture “family” during the Market. I am also being sponsored by Thayer Coggin Furniture, and I am looking forward to meeting them and seeing their showroom.

I have a busy schedule once I arrive…I start out at Lexington Furniture to see their new collections. image Later, I meet up with William Yeoward to see his new furniture line. I already own a set of his fabulous glassware and adore his style. imageHow fabulous is this WY pillow of a Union Jack made with mattress ticking!image

Of course, there is the Scalamandre Launch party that I wouldn’t miss for the world.image

I am looking forward to visiting Soicher Marin and their new collection of decoupaged items,imageas well as their collections of Charlotte Moss photographs and Isabelle de Borchgrave’s prints.

Cocktails at Wesley Hall, which is a perennial favourite!image

Monday brings a meet-up with Earl Spencer, Princess Diana’s brother, who now has a line of furniture modeled on what is at the ancestral family home, Althorp. image

In the afternoon, it’s Lillian August, which had some stunning pieces last Market. image

Then on to Bernhardt, image

and Century.image

In between all that, it will be visiting friends like the men of Madcap Cottage, imageand Becky at B.Viz textiles.image

And long-time favourites like Thibaut, image

Van Thiel, image

C.R. Laine, image

  1. I love your High Point visits!

  2. Whoa, girl, I don't know how you keep it all straight! Sounds like a wonderful odyssey. Brava.

    Of the pix you posted here, I especially love the logo of High Point with the woman's profile -- very elegant -- the adorable Union Jack pillow, and that brilliant green room. I've been looking for a green to paint the bedroom; I wonder if that's it . . . .

  3. Wow! I love the color and design, thanks for sharing.

  4. This is my dream trip! I had the pleasure of visiting a Lillian August showroom in Connecticut several years ago and loved everything . No doubt you will enjoy as a veteran and come back to report the latest trends! Oh, and while you're there can you order my velvet sofa?! Safe travels Meg.

    1. Just sorry to be missing the Guti Walk on Saturday!

  5. Have fun, safe travels, love to be there, too!

    1. Thanks! It's 6+ hours each way, but i have a good book to listen to!
