High Point Recap I

A weekend at High Point Market is not enough!  We were there with the masses trying to see as much as possible, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to see it all.  I loved seeing our designer friends from around the country and seeing what's new in the design world first hand and I especially loved going with Bethany for her first time to market!  It's a huge difference seeing everything in real time versus viewing products via swatches and online- that is an understatement.

Our weekend started with a fun evening at the Jr. League High Point Showhouse gala where Lisa Mende's kitchen, breakfast room and rear entry designs topped the charts!  The black, white and blue colors were spectacular.  Lots to look at from floor to ceiling, and beautifully balanced.  Other great designs were the entry by our friend Traci Zeller, a fantastic carriage house with designed rooms by Parker Kennedy Living and The English Room.

 Among our favorite finds were the amazing lighting displays.  This is just a hint of the thousands here.

Of course we had to slip in some fun in between the cocktail parties and showrooms with a rickshaw ride!  That was a blast and gave our feet a breather!

More peeks of market in HP Recap II next time!
