Today I put together a High Point Market highlight reel of the Spring 2014 market. Since the beginning of the year, I have been busy traveling from one trade show to the next and have been snapping up loads of pictures, just to post only a handful on the blog. I have amassed quite a collection of photos and instead of simply storing them on my computer, I decided to put them to good use by sharing them with all my readers. Instead of writing a traditional blog post, I put together a short video (4 1/2 minutes) of my High Point Market out takes.
People I run into always ask me what High Point Market is all about. If you’re an interior designer or furniture dealer, it is the place to be twice a year, when the world’s largest furniture trade show takes over the town of High Point, North Carolina. Buyers, manufacturers, and sales reps from all around the globe travel to High Point to see the new introductions in the many showrooms, which are housed in buildings throughout downtown and spread to the outskirts of town – 11.5 million square feet of show space! As you’ll see, High Point Market is not limited to furniture, but encompasses everything for the home including accessories, bedding, flooring and more.
Stay tuned for more short video highlights on other trade shows I’ve attended so far this year such as: Las Vegas Winter Market, The Architectural Digest Home Design Show, Dwell on Design, KBIS – The Kitchen and Bath Show, and Las Vegas Summer Market (which I will be attending next week) I realize that it’s not always easy to attend market, so this way you can watch the video and see all the great finds without having to leave home! I hope you enjoy – let me know what you think in the comment section, as I’d love to hear your thoughts. Perhaps I’ve convinced you that you too, need to visit High Point Market this October? Registration is now open!
