Favorite Finds at High Point Market

The High Point furniture market this spring was very exciting. I stopped into many familiar showrooms to check out their new introductions, but my main purpose this trip was to discover new vendors. I was interested in finding out how new brands were adapting to the rapidly changing marketplace. Many of them had innovative and new ways of working with designers. I found a majority of the new lines very designer friendly, well-made and well priced. My favorite new discoveries were the rug showrooms and the boutique furniture lines with handcrafted, intricately designed pieces that could be customized to any size, shape and color. Here are some of my favorite finds this year.

These pillows caught my eye…. I’m an owner of a curious miniature dachshund!

I love the mixture of the woven rope base with the stone top for this coffee table. The shape makes it even more interesting.

An amazing secretary with marbleized emerald green doors and coral hardware.

I’ve always been a sucker for turquoise and motifs. I wanted to take this rug home with me.

A slick wood lamp looks as if it is melting into the table.

This carved chest on a metal stand can be used for wine storage, or the shelves can be removed to house a TV.

Saw some great new rug patterns at one of my favorite go-to rug vendors. I can’t get enough of their Moroccan rugs…

Lots of fabulous hanging bench vignettes! These are great for hot summer days, sipping lemonade and
reading a good book.

Indoor outdoor rugs are also very popular, as they are versatile and are pretty much indestructible. I highly recommend them for anyone with kids, dogs and high traffic areas.

Quirky vintage yellow lamp with a black shade.

Nesting tables with some midcentury influence.

Glass jugs made into lamps. Brilliant and fun!

The Stanley showroom was so impressive and had the most beautiful showroom space I saw this market! I love this color combo of lime green, coral, emerald green, aqua and bright white.

A handsome inverted side table with inlaid bone strips.

One of my top three favorite pieces, an acrylic shelf with white lacquered drawers for storage.

A tower of vibrant pillows made of flatweave rugs.

A vintage outdoor canopy made of wicker and canvas.

Vibrant and colorful vignette of interesting textures, colors and materials.

Whimsical accessories for any console, bookshelf or place of interest.

Modular banquette that can be extended in the middle just by adding extra pieces.
