This last week I had the opportunity to mingle with some old friends, new friends, and great companies at this year’s High Point Market in North Carolina. In addition to mingling, I got to represent some of my favorite companies and products as well as find so many more I love. I’m so excited to share with you what I found and my experiences!
Me and a few other familiar faces joined forces, including Christopher Kennedy who I just did Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California with. We did a little High Point Instagram takeover! You can check out what you missed by looking up #HPMKT on Instagram for all of our posts.
Online Design at High Point Market:
For this year’s market, I had the wonderful opportunity to partner up with Design Network to introduce their new online design platform. There’s an easier way to do design now. Now, get inspiration, find a designer, and plan and shop for your dream space at thedesignnetwork.com. It’s a seriously cool new way for designers to connect with new clients and share brilliant new ideas. Some of my favorite new products and brands are up on the platform to discover direct from your favorite designers and style influencers.
It’s always so shocking and humbling to see poster around High Point like this one! Thanks so much to Design Network for the opportunity to rep such a cool product. Good thing I look exactly the same every single day so everyone will recognize me! Red lips. Glasses. Check!
Cultural Influence In Design With Some Brilliant Minds:
During the High Point Market opening day event, I had the opportunity to speak with my fabulous friend Jaye Anna Mize of trend forecasting agency Fashion Snoops on a panel including Pantone VP Laurie Pressman, Home and Gardens Editor-in-Chief Stephen Orr, and Crypton Home Fabrics Co-Founder Randy Rubin. We discussed global cultural influence on designers and customers. We also covered how globalization is directly influencing home interior design.
Per usual, High Point is my favorite event of the year to catch up with great friends, great inspirations of mine, and take in what’s to come in this year in trends. You can check out more of my favorite new trends from High Point and my suggestions for bringing them into your design and home here.
Until next year!
