It's April, which means it is time to get out the comfortable walking shoes to conquer High Point Market. Two times a year, buyers, editors, trend seekers and interior designers descend upon High Point, North Carolina, to seek out the best home furnishings and accessories, all in one place. I will be arriving Sunday and leaving Wednesday, where I will be doing a deep dive into American design. Some of this year's highly anticipated debuts include Celerie Kemble for Henredon with accessories by Maitland-Smith and Aerin for E.J. Victor. There are gems to be found, as well as trends galore. This year I am attending Market as a Style Spotter, where I join other bloggers that have been selected to seek out all that is exciting and inspiring in home. I am joined by some bloggers I know and others I am looking forward to getting to know.
When I cover row after row, showroom after showroom of introductions, I am mindful of designs I feel make an impression for style, scale, material, form, function and innovation. Regardless of how tired my feet and eyes are, I still keep plugging away till I have taken in as much as I possibly can. It is the editor in me; I am on a never-ending quest to find that elusive special item to get excited about.
