Inspiration at High Point

Last week, we took our interior design team from Aspen all the way to North Carolina's High Point Market. The biannual fair is a conversion of the world's best luxury design brands in one spot. More than 75,000 people hit the 11.5 million square feet of showroom space over two weeks in October to view more than 2,000 exhibitors. And we were there. 

The affair is part inspiration, part networking and part overwhelming. One of the highlights was meeting icon Aerin Lauder. We adore her brand and everything that comes with it. After meeting her and chatting about all things design, her visual comfort lighting line moved to the top of our list. Many of the fixtures incorporate natural elements (ideal for our mountain surroundings) so they're unique, yet warm, sleek and sophisticated at the same time. 

We also snapped a few photos of our favorites. While the slate gray couch may seem understated, the way the room ties together between the art, the flowers and vase (and even the newspaper on the table) is meticulous. It just goes to show that exquisite design is in the detail. 

What a great week! We return with lots of ideas, as well as calendars marked for next April when it happens all over again.
