High Point starts today, but we know it really started two days ago. I shopped this afternoon and grabbed a few bargains for our design clients with wish lists. I am a sleepy girl at the end of the day, so I'll send you a quicky sneak preview. Economy be damned! Creative people are still having a ball. At the last market, vintage top hats pervaded. Now, we have the coolest bowler hat light pendants--delightful.
While I was perusing the fabulous outdoor furniture, I noticed Timothy Oulton having a cigarette. Nobody apologizes for smokes in North Carolina, so naturally, I corrected him. I have been a fan of Timothy, and he was the man behind the curtain for a time. He has lived in China for the past 20 years supervising every aspect of the production. After scouring the world's flea markets and sending his treasures back to China, Timothy makes sure their reproductions are indistinguishable from the original.
I have shopped High Point for 26 years. I have watched this company emerge from a minuscule High Point space, with a few good reproductions, transition into Rock Star design work.
Chic lofty looks pervade the showroom, but it retains a whimsical eclectic style.
This sleek bar is the perfect addition to the transient household. For the lady in the house, the traveling vanity is the perfect vehicle for a quick get away.
If you are going to High Point, go to Halo
and let yourself go!
