High Point Market Spring 2012 – A Colorful Delight

Posted on | April 25, 2012 | 6 Comments

Anyone who is remotely connected with interior design knows that High Point is the place to be this week. Wall Streeters talk so often about ‘the market,’ but right now, the market that holds the attention of so many throughout North Carolina and across the country is the High Point Market.

I caught up yesterday with one of our favorite Charlotte interior designers – Amy Vermillion, of Martineau Vermillion Interior Design. Amy didn’t waste time getting to High Point this past weekend to see what the showrooms had to offer. I was thankful she had a few moments to chat before heading to a client’s home in Charleston, SC.

“Color, color, color. Lot’s of color! And it’s bright – and beautiful. Teal, pink, purple, and yes, since you asked, I did see Pantone’s Color Of The Year – Tangerine,” Amy said. Hickory Chair as always, was a visual delight. “The prints were vivid, favoring a mod, contemporary look!”

Color wasn’t just limited to fabrics. It was on the walls as well as the furniture. Multiple finishes, with multiple colors? That’s another look Amy confirmed that both Jonathan Adler and Hickory Chair handled quite well. Going through the showrooms, Amy took note of sleek lacquer furniture. Ok, so I wouldn’t design my entire home in lacquer furniture, however, I would select a colorful coffee table or a pair of end tables from by Jonathan Adler or Barclay Butera to punch up a room.

As for how I feel about so much color? You’d get a big ‘Woo hoo!’ from me. To know me is to know I love color!

Check back tomorrow for more Market news.

    Wish I could have gone, Amy. I am seeing it through the eyes of others and it seems like a home run!

    Thanks, Lori. Did you attend? I wish I could have gone…my dog is not well and I simply could not leave him.

    Laura ~ So nice of you to comment. So many designers expressed to me how much they enjoyed your Showroom. It was a “must see.” Congratulations on a successful Market!
