Did you think we were all done after just one day of exploration around High Point Market? No way! After a little bit of sleep, fresh shoes and a lot of coffee, we were ready to join back up with the Design Bloggers Tour for another day of visiting old friends and meeting new ones.
Here is Day 2 of the Design Bloggers Tour at High Point Market!
Hooker Furniture is one of those names synonymous with quality design, but I’ll be honest, I always assumed it was like grandma furniture. Boy could I not have been more wrong. They had so many fun, fresh styles that were super well made and at a fantastic price point. I will definitely be coming back
We recently used our first Hubbardton Forge light at a project that we’ll soon reveal and I was really impressed with how well it was made. It was great getting to see other styles in person (including some gorgeous outdoor lighting!) and learn about their light-making process. They are quite cutting edge.
Oh if I knew then what I know now…well that is how I’d describe Daniel Stuart Studio. They have stunning, accessible pillows, bedding and more. I loved all of their fabrics and really loved how they create duvet fills to fit a duvet cover perfectly. That is like music to my ears!
Never have I ever sat on such comfortable, beautifully crafted upholstered outdoor furniture. SIFAS was originally started in France to provide outdoor pieces that could withstand the elements of the South of France. I was so taken with one of the sofas that I nearly took a nap right there on the spot.
Windy O’Connor is a vibrant, colorful artist out of South Carolina. The pieces really spoke to the entire tour and I’ve never seen a group of designers get so excited over the same art. She also offers wallpapers, fabrics, and pillows, among other things. I’ve got a client in mind for one of her lovely pieces right now.
This line is huge and is comprised of many smaller lines like Cosmo Living and The Novogratz. I loved that so many pieces are colorful and whimsical and I especially liked that I found a new resource for on-trend kids furniture…which is always so hard to find.
It was amazing to learn that Smith Honig started just two years ago and in that time, they’ve created a gorgeous line of bright, saturated textiles. So much of it was drool-worthy and I especially loved their new line of travel bags.
We ended our tour at a personal fave of mine, Cisco Brothers. This family-owned, American-made line carries some of the most stunning upholstery and case good pieces. They are California casual to a T. Unfussy but so polished and classy. Their entire (massive!) showroom felt like a dream.
Can you believe that outside of all of this, we also explored so much more around High Point? That’s the end of the Design Bloggers Tour, but stay tuned for more finds from market in our next post.
