It’s almost time for High Point Market, one of my favorite industry events of the year.

High Point (a.k.a. HPMKT) is where I and many other design professionals travel twice a year to see the newest home furnishings introductions, network with industry “movers and shakers” and get a feel for emerging design trends.

In the past, I’ve had the pleasure of representing High Point Market Authority in an official capacity.

In 2015, I was one of nine designers to serve as an official Style Spotter for the Spring and Fall Markets.

In 2016, I was one of ten design bloggers to take part in the High Point and Esteem Media‘s Design Blogger’s Tour.


This year, I’ve teamed up with High Point and Esteem Media again, for High Point Market Insider’s Tour!

During this tour, I’ll give “newbie” Market buyers the chance to shadow me as I explore my favorite High Point showrooms, rub elbows with Market executives and attend a few must-see Market events.

If this is your first time attending Market or your first time back in a while, this will be a great introduction (or refresher) to all that High Point Market has to offer!

Trust me! We’ll work hard AND play hard!
