High Point Fall Market 2013

At the last minute….I attended the High Point 2013 Fall Market

…..with Kristen of Sophia’s Decor and her talented mom, Linda.

We did lots of walking and gawking in the one day we were there.

We ran into the lovely Courtney (French Country Cottage)…and due lots of miscommunications, etc.

…..we did not get to actually hook up…next time!

Today, I am presenting some great inspiration from one of the companies…

….. that Kristen and I love…Eloquence.

The antique and reproduction furniture is magnificent!





I love the styling of this cabinet…lots of demijohns and de-constructed books..


Really like how they layered the bread boards as a back drop…




Great textures….


And that gorgeous architectural piece on the wall took my breath away!…

Wanted to take that beauty home!!



So it definitely looks as though…wonderful painted antique and reproduction furniture…

…..rooms decorated with olive bucket decor, demijohns, and deconstructed books…are here to stay.

…………..glorious antiques and vintage furniture mixed with quality reproductions.

And one of the highlights of the day…was attending a session with Candace Olsen.

She spoke about design, her show…happenings “behind the scenes”, some personal tidbits…

…..and her gorgeous new line of Surya area rugs…

What a beautiful, talented and very funny lady!!

Stay tuned for more from Highpoint…

Have a beautiful day!!

  7. Shirley,
    How beautiful. Every piece is so great. I just hung brown distressed shutters like those in my guest room. I love that style. So pretty. I bet you had a great time looking at all the vendors.

  8. I would absolutely love this opportunity. We went through High Point several years ago on the way to Maine, but many of the showrooms were closed. I did find a couple of treasures though.

  18. Oh how exciting to have seen Candace. She looks really skinny in these pics, as in even skinnier than usual. Lovely woman. Sounds fun and how nice to spend the day with Kristen and her Mom. Me and Suzy were supposed to have gone but with the flu I just didn’t feel up to it. Would love to have seen Courtney again.
