My favorite program is “Style Spotters LIVE!” sponsored by Crypton Home Fabric, which is traditionally held on Tuesday mornings. Here, the nine Style Spotters, during a full visual presentation, discuss their top picks, trends they are seeing, and what to expect to see the following Market. I have been honored to moderate this lively panel for two years now, and it is a must see for designers and vendors! Mark your calendar (you must RSVP at www.highpointmarket.org and a full breakfast is provided.)
I’d recommend attending furniture showroom parties, especially if it is for a special launch or anniversary. There are MANY of these going on, all during Market. At these, you will run into so many friends, or meet new ones. Our team usually heads to one (or two or three) of these almost every night during Market! The parties range from cocktail hour style to full blown dance party (best examples include Four Hands and Surya!)
Lastly, don’t miss the various educational seminars, CEUS, or the behind the scenes tours available at High Point Market. I have learned so much from other interior designers, furniture designers, and leading business people. I try to mix in at least two or three of these while at Market. Again I’ve left with invaluable information.
Well, I hope you are over the moon to go to High Point Market! I am! Remember your comfortable shoes and get ready to make some outrageous memories and walk many miles. I hope to see you at some of my favorite must-see places!
