Our trip to The High Point Market in North Carolina could easily be considered more play than work because of the shear excitement we get when picking new items for our show room. Despite the constant rain and long days we loved every second of being at market. That is why we wanted to share our experience with you, our audience.
Market is always full to the brim with new furnishings and decor but this year the items were particularly fresh and exciting. Our first day at market we were able to visit two of our favorite show rooms, Bernhardt Designs and Hooker Furniture.
Bernhardt featured new motion leather sectionals in a wonderful caramel color with a new articulating headrest feature, which elevates your lounge furniture experience entirely. Their new collections were striking and their showroom was busy with buyers and designers. It was a great first stop.
Next, we visited Hooker Furniture to finish our Saturday evening. Their showcase introduction was called American Life which included collections Urban Elevation & Rosylin County. This collection had a little something for everyone. Hooker created a beautiful mid-west casual look that would also fit well into urban loft life by mixing warm woods with metals and soft fabrics. We went a little crazy with the new Storia collection office furniture for our personal use in the showroom. A great transitional look that is clean, crisp and functional.
The next three days involved visits to our favorite upholstery showrooms including Rowe & Temple, several rug and accessory showrooms plus always being on the lookout for new manufacturers. We found several, but that is for a later blog when we have more details to share. We left exhausted but excited to get back and tell everyone what we experienced and ordered.
Some things you can look forward to seeing this coming fall in our A&M Home Furnishings Showroom are jewel and blush tone fabrics, natural and unpolished woods, as well as some glam items to fit every style and home.
