On my way out of High Point, I stopped for a tour of the Bienenstock Furniure Library, one of High Point’s year-round treasures. The library was founded by the owner of Furniture World magazine in 1970 as a personal collection of books. The collection includes contemporary books as well as some of the classics, including an original copy of Thomas Chippendale’s furniture design book.
I was lucky to get a personal tour of the library and its collections from Director, Karla Webb who loves books as much as I do! One of the fun collections at Bienenstock is the old copies of House Beautiful, House & Garden and many auction catalogues.
My visit to the Bienenstock was a great way to end a terrific trip to High Point, and I would recommend a visit if you’re close!
