If you aren’t an interior designer then you may not know that we spend countless hours at several industry-specific markets and trade shows throughout the year. This is our best (and sometimes only!) chance to sit on, touch, and physically see a lot of the items we source on a daily basis. The grandmama of them all, High Point Market (HPMKT), happens twice a year in…you guessed it…High Point, North Carolina and it is easily the most important business trip our firm takes all year.
The fall edition of HPMKT has us extra excited because it’s the first time Mackenzie will be tagging along for all the furniture goodness, but I have also been chosen to participate in the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour in partnership with Esteem Media.
It’ll be me and my 9 new BFF designer pals on a 2-day whirlwind tour of showrooms. We will be sharing all of our favorite finds on our respective blogs and social media accounts. So be sure to follow along for some good eye candy.
