Spring Highpoint Furniture Market
We’re back! Til October at least!
We just got back from High Point Market and figured it would be a great time to write a post about why we love going. High Point Market is the most significant event in home furnishings. Each spring and fall, more than 75,000 industry professionals head down to Market Week in High Point to experience all things form, function, and fashion for the home. We get to plug into the latest consumer trends, see tens of thousands of new product debuts, network with colleagues and peers, and find innovative ideas for moving forward.
High Point is a pivotal part of the Lisa Scheff design process, which is why we attend twice a year, every year. There are several reasons why we make it a point to visit High Point, but here are the top three.
We get to try before we buy and find the perfect piece:
High Point is full of all of our favorite vendors (and some new ones to add to our list). Twice a year, thousands of vendors set up their elaborate booths, some the sizes of homes. Each vendor location is filled all of their latest and most fabulous items.
We head down to High Point with our project lists in hand, ready to find and try items for our client spaces. We get to sit on the sofas, switch the lights on and off, see the paintings, stand on the rugs, and touch the fabrics. Sometimes we love things we see in catalogs, but in real life, they don’t fit the space. Luckily we are often able to find the perfect piece while we are there. High Point is where a lot of our projects come together.
We stay ahead of the trends:
Companies come to High Point to showcase their newest products, many of which haven’t even been made public yet. The 12.2 million square feet is packed wall to wall, chock full with over 2,000 of the newest trends for us to sift through.
This is where new trends are born and brought to reality. It is where we get our first glimpse of the latest color trends, pattern trends, and whether wallpaper is in or not. Attending the market twice a year is what keeps Lisa Scheff Designs ahead of the curve and stocked with an arsenal of great design pieces.
We get inspired and find new companies:
High Point Market is a source of endless inspiration. For days, we peruse the aisles full of different companies, fellow designers, and the latest trends. We rub elbows with people from all facets of the design world. We spend our time surrounded by the latest trends, the best companies, and industry designers. It is impossible not to be inspired by the surroundings at High Point.
Attending High Point keeps us informed on trends and the best quality products for your home. If you are looking to update a space in your home, give us a call!
