Hey there Lovelies!
I am beyond excited to announce that I am partnering with Esteem Media, the creator of the ever popular Design Influencers Conference, as a Design Blogger this Fall at High Point Market in North Carolina. You’ve seen and heard me post twice per year about my visits to the Spring and Fall Markets at High Point, where I am always bringing you top design trends and industry news. This time is a bit different, as you will be getting a sneak peek behind the curtains.
If you are new around these parts, and not an Interior Designer or an industry professional of some sort, you may not know what High Point Market is. High Point is a town in North Carolina that can best be described as the furniture capital of the world. Twice per year in April and October, High Point is buzzing with activity for the world’s largest furniture market, where manufactures and vendors showcase their new introductions inside millions of square feet of showroom space. It basically is an entire city of every showroom that you can imagine. Designers, retailers and other industry folks from all over the world visit High Point to stay up to date on furniture trends and bring their clients the greatest in home fashion.
So you can imagine the excitement that I was chosen as one of a group of 10 Design influencers who for about a week will be touring various showrooms and getting the behind-the-scenes, VIP tours, and product demos, and we will be sharing it all with you through various social media channels. So if you are not following me on Instagram and Facebook, now is a great time to follow along so you don’t miss a thing.
