My top nine picks for best in design at the fall 2015 High Point Furniture and Design market.
Ambella Home – Always creative, always beautiful and always a leader in design direction.
Wesley Hall – for their very beautiful furniture and exquisite design collaborations with design divas that I adore including Meredith Heron, Taylor Burke Home, Peter Jacob Kind and Cotton and Quill.
Global Views – for wowing me each and every season with extravagant, exuberant and exquisite design vignettes filled with even more divinely exquisite furniture and decor like this one featuring products from the always effervescent Julia B. Buckingham’s debut collection for Global Views.
Bernhardt Furniture – for their honed ability to convey effortless elegance and refined luxury by creating a visual narrative that instantly captivates you and transports you into a world of impeccable style, and glamour.
CR Laine – for their magnificent and completely fearless approach to using color in design. Consistently showcasing colorful, polished, and sophisticated interiors that are elegant and timeless, like this one featuring Tobi Fairley’s home furnishings collections for CR Laine and Woodbridge Furniture.
French Heritage -for their enchanting, elegant and eclectic French style mixing classic styles with a contemporary flair that simply captivates you the moment you arrive on the steps of their beautiful showroom. Oh, and they have the cutest dog ever, Nelson! Which may prompt me to start a Cutest Dogs of High Point Market list for next furniture market.
Hooker Furniture – for its debut of the Cynthia Rowley furniture and decor collection. It was stunning and absolute perfection. As my fabulous friend Saxon Henry said of the showroom design, “it’s like being in the front row at fashion week and watching the models sashay across the runway.” And it was!
Deloach Design in the Antique and Design Center. Designer and vintage dealer extraordinaire Michael Deloach designs and styles must-see vignettes of deftly mixed vintage furniture and decor, and in some cases, salvaged industrial pieces like this round metal strainer he converted into a wall sconce/art piece. He is seriously brilliant, and his booths are always on my must-visit list for market.
Luna Bella – for their rich, beautifully creative design confections that delight at every single market. Their showroom is pure magic, and a mainstay on my must-see list.
