Twice a year, designers and shop owners from all over trek to a quaint little town in North Carolina called High Point. It’s a huge production – literally MILES of showrooms full of furniture and lighting and rugs and accessories. It’s a designer’s heaven! Sadly, you can only attend if you are in the trade, but I have some photos to share with you from my fall market trip! I also spoke on a Domino/Chairish panel and got to run into some old friends while I was there. (Caitlin has a new shop in San Francisco and her new products are BEAUTIFUL!). It was a super fast, but super inspiring couple of days.
(last minute shoe purchase that saved my life! Only comfy shoes at market from here on out!!)
My favorite showroom is always, always Hickory Chair. The spaces are airy and elegant, but grounded and real. I always spend the most time in Suzanne Kasler’s collection. I was also loving the new collection with Susan Hable from Hable Construction, inspired by Midcentury and Scandinavian designs.
It was also such a treat to swing into the Magnolia Home Collection by Joanna Gaines. (Are you watching the new season of Fixer Upper?) Their space at market was absolutely gorgeous! Somehow they managed to transform a super boxy corporate showroom into a charming farmhouse! I love her new rug collection with Loloi and her kids furniture line is to die for.
I use Visual Comfort/Circa a lot with my client work so it is always fun to see all of their products, new and old, in one big space at market. The Thomas O’Brien and AERIN collections never, ever disappoint!
I wish I could just hand you my phone so you could flip through all the product goodness I found during my three-day treasure hunt! I sort of mixed the photos up here, but if you have any questions about sources, or where to buy things, leave a comment or send me an email! I’d be happy to help you hunt something down. In the meantime, here are a few products I saw already available online, or products that shared a similar vibe to the styles I saw trending at market. Enjoy!
