“The Suites at Market Square and IHFC's Interhall are the best places to scope out new vendors,” says Traci Zeller, interior designer and owner of Traci Zeller Inc. “I'm crazy about Taylor Burke Home, Cotton + Quill, and Piper Collection.”
Christi Barbour and Christi Spangle, partners in Barbour-Spangle Design, head north to find interesting outposts. “We like to shop the outlying showrooms north of the High Point epicenter such as Somerset Bay, Mr. Brown, Julian Chichester, CR Laine and Oly,” says Barbour. “These showrooms incorporate some of the freshest looks and trends we see. They inspire us each Market with their product introductions, display ideas and color stories.”
When it’s time to hit the showrooms this Market, let curiosity be your guide. Search for new vendors on the Find Exhibitors page, ask a fellow Market-goer for suggestions, follow the Style Spotters from our Find Events page, or just head outside and keep your eyes peeled as you walk from building to building. You’ll undoubtedly discover sources that leave you breathless, ecstatic and wondering why you never took this path before.
