High Point Market Highlights

My High Point Highlights are finally revealed. Every one keeps asking what was new, what was the 'it' thing, the 'must have'...  As always, there is so much to see, so much to take in, and so much by which I am inspired.  It is one of the great gifts of my job - that I get to see art and design in the making.  This year, High Point did not disappoint.  Beauty abounded, and I was, indeed, INSPIRED.  I hope you will be as well.

The "Must Have":  Anything from Tommy Mitchell
My big treat this year was meeting local artist and furniture designer, Tommy Mitchell.  His pieces have been in Bergdorf's and have been placed in various designers' homes. Each piece is hand painted and unique. Art at its most inspiring.  


Above and below: Tommy's martini tables, which are works of art.  Consider them a bit of jewelry for your home.  

A sampling of wall hangings.
Color Trend:  PINK

There was a lot of PINK in rugs.  Hand knotted, flat weave, over-dyed.  You name it - it is available in PINK.  

NEW from vanCollier:

New cobalt velvet sofa is on its way to Eatmans.

vanCollier Greek Key red lantern.  Available in ANY color.  

New gold mirror made its debut at market.  Also available in a silver finish.

Innovation:  Flat weave rugs that are completely reversible (and affordable)!
