Highpoint Market – Color, Color and More Color

Last week, I flew across the country to the “Furniture Capital of the World,” High Point, North Carolina for the High Point Market, the home furnishings industry’s annual showcase for excellence in showroom design.  This event lasted a week and was jam packed with educational seminars, opportunities for networking and, of course, a showcase of the latest interior design trends.

High Point is the adrenaline lifeline for this Seattle interior designer.  In my “comfy shoes,” I do the marathon of showrooms and appointments and generally succumb to over stimulation after four days (and 2 days of flying).

I love the wonderful relationships established over the years attended and the opportunity to make new ones. There is something to be said for Southern hospitality!  This year was all about color, and color is the eye candy for today’s clients.  The showrooms have clearly recognized the message and responded with zest.

What do you think of this coral and conch shell table lamp from Bradburn Gallery?
