7 Favorite Showrooms at High Point Market



High Point Market is the most
amazing place to visit!
People come from all over the world to view the
latest designs for furnishings and home decor
and to shop...



This is Janie of JBeth Designs!



Between wandering around the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) by myself on Friday afternoon/evening
and then meeting up with
Courtney of French Country Cottage
{our Insider's Guide to High Point Market for first timers!}
and new friend and designer
Janie Timberlake of JBeth Designs
{she's just starting a site on FB and is on Instagram}
on Saturday
and touring showrooms
listening to a fabulous talk at a place
I will share with you in a separate post
{we were treated to a Moroccan lunch there, too!}
and
getting to shop for amazing pieces and see
all these gorgeous goods coming
from Europe and all
over the world
I'm on sensory overload ~ but in the
best way possible!!!
:D


I'll have several indepth write-ups over the next few weeks
sharing more of the beautiful furniture pieces
and accessories I found that inspired me.



Here are Seven Incredible Showrooms that I found which just
knocked my socks off:

Eloquence

Shown in the featured first photo was my absolute 
definite favorite followed closely by these next three.
As soon as I can figure out how to share
Eloquence's trademark with you on their photographs
I promise
I have a TON of French etherealness by way of
incredibly beautiful French pieces
to share with you...
sigh!
Just look at those gorgeous round accent lights!
They are such a lovely take on the 1960's-1970's
ones my parents had in their
guest/second bathroom
in their country Connecticut home.
{Left by a previous owner and they sufficed ~ just weren't my taste.}






Love the old French novels and the French farmhouse table and benches
at French Heritage.

French Heritage


A showroom filled with beautiful fine furnishings
the owner designed herself for various designers
and pieces of the company's own label.
Gold leaf, incredible French Louis mirrors
exquisite reproductions and antiques
as well as
avante-garde Art Deco inspired pieces ~
totally on trend!





TONS of ironstone tureens inside Golden Oldies.

Golden Oldies

This must be where everything comes into port
from everywhere overseas...
Hat makers forms, chocolate molds, loving cups,
French mirrors, olive buckets in stacks...
Janie and I... Our mouths dropped open at the $$
we could have dropped there
for clients AND for ourselves!






Ave Home

Ave features raw wood designs for the home
and can customize any of their furniture pieces
with Annie Sloan chalk paint matched to your decor
or can stain as desired.
I like their ability to customize!
I think that's their best selling point as not
every company has the ability to do this.
Ave prides itself on being very vendor and
owner-oriented.
:)




Bobo Intriguing Objects

One of the first shops we had an appointment with on
Saturday which has really nice clean furniture lines
and a fun mix of funky accessories ~ like the cute
French bulldog who has a name which I forget
{I'm sorry!}
and cute children's play horses with burlap bodies
but paper maché heads, legs and tails!


Bobo also carries incredible antique artists' drawings
which would have been used as the original design
for pieces created in the 18th and 17th centuries.
Wonderful for framing
they were on my list of future wallhangings.








Bliss Studio

Lovely reproductions with that ethereal white Nordic look
that I have totally fallen for these past few years...
Bliss is making very European-style cushions
which are thicker and more comfortable than
foam-filled cushions used on a lot of lesser quality
furniture pieces.
They are featuring the Gustavian-French look
brought over from Europe
which is so beautiful and popular right now
in North America and across Europe.

I was particularly excited about this table
set up that you can see in the photo above.
I like that the demilune tables can be added to
the kitchen table to bring in extra spaces
when extra company arrives ~
especially handy during the holidays!








Blue Ocean Traders

OMGosh!  We all went nuts for the many
vintage goodies found here...
My picks were horse troughs which come in three
sizes stacked and can be used in the garden
inside in a greenhouse or really anywhere.
Doors from India and the Middle East
are also a big feature here
along with reproduction wooden breadboards
doughbowls and the cutest capitals
from the Phillipines
made of wood.
A very famous t.v. personality has these
in her showroom.
:)

Mine! :D

These are the doors I wanted to put in my
suitcase and bring home...
Love all the colors on them!


Coming to Market has been crazy fun and
I've learned a ton!
I've linked all the showroom names for you
so you can see their products.
If there is something you'd like to buy
just let me know and I'll
inquire for you and quote you a price.
