I have been here about 5 days now and am very happy. High Point is an old mill town in central North Carolina. Historically, High Point was been the center of furniture manufacture in America since the late 19th century. Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the High Point Market which brings together furniture manufacturers, designers, retail store buyers, the press and hunters and purveryors of fabulous things for the home from all over the world. There is a huge variety of mostly furniture, but home accesories and antiques are here too.
I am part of CaBoom - a groovy show which has been going on in Santa Monica, CA for 5 years and is debuting here this market. Partnering with Cisco Bros., a furniture design company and manufacturer based in LA, Charles Trotter and Cisco Pinedo are an awesome duo.
I plan to profile a couple of other designers while I am here this week. Today, a couple of pictures of the building and my booth.
