As designers, we are constantly looking for inspiration. We want to be able to present new ideas with a fresh and provocative point of view. This week we made a quick jaunt to Highpoint, North Carolina for the fall market. We wanted to share a bit of what we loved during our visit.
We were drawn in by the vibrant use of patten and color that Julian Chichester used in their furniture and wall coverings. They stayed true to their point of view and yet incorporated new silhouettes in a sculptural way!
Bobo Intriguing Objects displayed white framed, huge nautical flags that contrasted beautifully against a rich dark background – a graphic way to add bright modern colors!
Giant outdoor statues for the garden were another theme that we noticed at market. We were so moved by the serenity of this statue sleeping in nature.
Natural Dining Chairs
By far our favorite dining chair at High Point. The woven rope paired with smooth walnut wood displayed beauty in contrasting textures. This chair was surprisingly comfortable and added a natural touch that could work for many different personalities.
The curved sofa was a delightful example of a fresh silhouette featured at High Point, and we fell in love! Organic curves really inspired us to rethink the usual floor plan and consider floating these beauties in the middle of a room. Either on its own or paired together, a great conversation piece for any gathering space!
We hope to make this Highpoint Market visit an annual tradition. Each year’s market introduces us to interesting shapes, bold patterns and innovative designers. As always, we promise to share with you what’s new and inspiring in the world of interior design. Happy Fall!
