Last week was Fall break for my kiddos. Two of my sons were spending the long weekend on a class trip and a scout camp out. So, I let my husband have some quality father/son time with the two younger boys, and this mama headed to the market!
High Point Market, that is.
Or, as I like to refer to it… "Disneyland for Designers."
If you aren't familiar with High Point Market, it is the largest furnishings trade show in the world, featuring 11.5 million square feet of showspace. That doesn't sound a bit overwhelming, does it?
I've been trying to get to market for a couple of years, but the timing always interferes with our Spring break and our Fall break. So I was beyond excited that I could make it work this Fall!
I had just three days to take in as much of the market as possible. I stayed with my dear friend, Amy Hale, who is a designer in Cary, NC. Every morning we got up early and made the hour drive to High Point to shop until we dropped (literally!).
We had a list of showrooms that we wanted to be sure to see, and also left ourselves time to explore and discover new places. I felt like a kid in a candy store!
Here is a little snapshot of the eye candy...

I'm officially addicted to High Point, and hope to return for the Spring market. I've got more photos and stories to share, so stay tuned.
If you need any of this yumminess in your own home, contact me. I'd love to help you design your dream space!
