Where oh where to start! My first visit to market was an incredible two days of whirlwind activity – from visiting vendors, to seeing old friends and meeting many online connections for the first time! Many thanks to Cheminne Taylor-Smith, VP of Marketing at High Point and the entire Wesley Hall family for sponsoring my trip and for your amazing hospitality!
Many of you are probably familiar with Currey & Company, the well known manufacturer of distinctive home furnishings. Always reliable for a wide variety of stylish products, their lighting is a particularly strong category. I found their new industrial collection especially appealing including the Lumley Pendant in French black/pyrite bronze and the Sage Pendant in dark blackened steel above.
and the Verne Pendant in Hiroshi gray/off white and the Earthshine pendant in blackened steel. These types of fixtures are so versatile, offering the opportunity to add a little patina and sense of history.
The whimsical Carousel Lantern in lollipop red and gold and architectonic Denison Lantern in mole black are terrific for when you would like a large fixture with little heft.
The Primo Chandelier above is a fun twist on tradition with a relaxed nod to formality.
There were also many useful occasional pieces, often with a natural bent. The faux bois Redgrove table and Montauk side table offer texture and versatility for casual living spaces.
I’ve always loved their popular Woodland bench and seat – so charming for any outdoor venue.
The Lombard chest in glossy red would be a great accent piece almost anywhere.
New to this market were some one of a kind pieces such as this fabulous tufted chaise in a vintage fabric – needless to say, it didn’t last long.
Arteriors, another popular wholesaler of unique home design products was also on many buyers’ lists. While navigating the crowds, I picked a few favorites.
The Calvin hide and antique brass bar stool is a fun version and would look great in anything from a minimalistic loft space to a rustic ski house, as would the Wade antique brass cart.
I’m always on the lookout for interesting mirrors – they add so much character and light to a room. These two fit the bill nicely – the Wells wood and iron mirror and the Academia mirror
There’s so much to share – stop back for more High Point highlights!!

I love your picks–the red on the Lombard chest is exactly the shade that I have been searching for to lacquer a table. Thank you!!
living vicariously through your eyes and loving it!
There’s lots to love here… but I think the chaise has to be my favorite. Would love to spend a lazy rainy afternoon curled up on that with a good book! Looking forward to more highlights!
Beautiful. I love the bar cart!
It was soooo fun, and yes a whirlwind. Loved all of the statement lighting – the bone lanterns in Mr. Brown Design were unbelievable. We were definitely on the same path – so wish we could have met!!
I really like the lighting by Currey & Company. The red Lombard chest would make a great accent piece! Sounds like you are crazy busy!!
Thanks for always sharing such wonderfully chic products and artfully designed items.
Love those stools and that chaise is like a piece of ART! I am looking for a new chandie, a mod brass one and ARteriors is high on my list of vendors.
Going next year for sure! A fab array of designs at High Point! Love the Currey light pendants. Always a fan of Arteriors as well :-)
gotta love that Calvin Hide Bar Stool!
You are certainly highlighting some gems!!! I just got an Arteriors chandelier for me and a different one for a law firm client.
I am so delighted that I had the chance to meet you! I am still sifting and sorting through the 700+ images I took at HP!
Love that you’re at High Point!!! Would love to go next year….so would love to chat with you about how to make that happen.
