High Point Market is THE place to be if you’re in the interior design industry.
“The High Point Market is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 85,000 people to High Point every six months. Serious retail home furnishings buyers can be found in High Point twice a year because if you can’t find it in High Point…it probably doesn’t exist.” —North Carolina International Trade Department of Commerce
I recently returned from High Point feeling energized and inspired. Trip highlights include meeting Thom Filicia and seeing his new Vanguard furniture line and Home Collection for Wendover Art Group, taking over High Point Market’s Instagram account for a day (so fun!), tush testing chairs for comfort, gorgeous flowers everywhere, and lots of team building. OK, and maybe some wine.
Check out more of what we saw and loved (and what we’re over), below.
