Fall Market is only a month away. If you’ve not yet made plans to attend, I encourage you to do so. While there are many design shows and expos throughout the year, none can compare with High Point Market for its depth and breadth of lines and products. Plus, you have the opportunity to learn about new products and trends from some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry.

Yes, you can find pictures of nearly every product on the internet. But although a picture may be worth a thousand words, we designers know that nothing can take the place of examining a product in person. High Point’s expansive selection of showrooms practically guarantees that whatever your preferred style of design or unique item you’re seeking, you’ll find something extraordinary.

Unlike expos that come and go, the folks at High Point live and breathe design every day. They know our industry and how designers work. They’re happy to answer your questions and provide advice to ensure you get the best possible service.

Every designer I know has his or her own favorites. Among those considered to be especially designer-friendly are, in no particular order, Universal Furniture, Verellen, Highland House Furniture, Modern History, and The Bank on Wrenn. And, no trip to High Point would be complete without a stop at Chichester Brown Closet—a treasure-trove of one-of-a-kind pieces.

Of course, I have my own bias. Along with the multitude of showrooms and the chance to meet up with longtime friends and associates, and make new ones, High Point offers some of the best seminars and workshops you’ll find anywhere. Be sure to make some time in your schedule to improve your business as well as your projects. You’ll come away with information and insights on marketing, management, planning, and more that will help your business grow and be more profitable in the months to come.

Registration for passes to Fall Market ends Friday, October 4. Don’t delay. To view a calendar of events and register, go to the High Point Market website

  1. […] High Point Market has become a trend addiction for the Interior Design World. With the launch of Trend Spotters, Instagram Take-Overs, Trend Tours and all the trend related hashtags, it has become a must-have event to attend. I personally border on HPMKT FOMO and while I could skip a market each year the hottest trends are begging for attention. (Mine of course, right?). A few years ago, it was very easy to receive streamlined information from Market on leading trends. But with Instagram clutter and multiple parties competing for attention, it is now almost impossible to determine who is who, what is what, and the top trends emerging. So I decided to simply create my own Design Detail Trend Report as an avid attendee and veteran in the industry. I welcome your contributions to my trend spotting as there is no limit to the wealth of interesting observations and collaborative insights. @karenbwolfinteriors. […]
