High Point Recap

My team and I recently returned from High Point, NC where we visited the High Point Furniture Market. “Market” (as it is called in the biz), is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world. It is huge! There are over 2000 exhibitors in about 180 buildings. My team and I like to make this trip each year together and it is always fun. We were there for three nights attending educational events, parties and most importantly–walking through the showrooms to check out all of the new products and trends.

What I really love about attending High Point Market is that it really fuels me creatively. I always come back so inspired and excited to design! I have a ton of wonderful content to share from our trip, but I want to start with one of my very favorite stops: Bernhardt Furniture Company! As you know from past posts, I am a huge fan of Bernhardt and I use their products all the time in my designs. During this visit, I was lucky enough to spend some time with the chairman of the company, Alex Bernhardt himself! It was such an honor and I am so inspired by his vision.

There were so many beautiful new products to see at the Bernhardt showroom. Lots of clean lines mingled with materials like reclaimed woods, rustic metals, marbles, and luxurious fabrics.

Bernhardt has an ahhhmazing new luxury outdoor line and I will definitely be incorporating it into my designs! Beautiful outdoor furniture can be tricky to find and this line is seriously to die for. It is exactly my taste and a perfect representation of the Bernhardt style.
