Editor’s Picks for High Point 2018
High Point Market (14-18 April 2018) is a self-contained interior design universe. Bringing together every product under the sun, it is where interior designers go to find the right furnishings for their projects and forge new connections.
Open to the trade only, High Point Market attracts serious buyers, but the value of attending is not only in the purchases one can make. For visitors as well as exhibitors, it is the place to be when it comes to staying in the loop in terms of trends and for understanding the American market.
Come April there will be an abundance of rug companies, representing every imaginable style and price point. Tamarian is just one rug company that has experienced success at the HP show for a number of years. New Moon, who can always be counted upon to have original offerings, will show rugs inspired by Native American patterns in innovative colourways, Exquisite Rugs has gone for painterly pieces and HRI combines all-over pattern with uniform colour in its new looks. Art Resources is a leader in fine, handmade carpets— with an inventory containing 13,000 designs and it is always interesting to see what the brand will have on display. Feizy, Surya and Safavieh tend to shine at High Point Market, as does Nourison, for whom interior designer Barclay Butera will launch new rugs, including an outdoor collection (see COVER 50).
