High Point Picks – Day One!

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!!

    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!!
