I think what I enjoy most about High Point is the insane juxtaposition of ideas and goods where ever one turns!
Root balls have been hot for three years–now seen in every design magazine photo shoot–this time in slow gear, but airplanes are sold out!
In the next stand you can pray to Mary and Jesus from the world’s ugliest green leather barcolounger–but who am I to judge, this is the third dealer here to buy the bilious thing!
By turning around from 1960 you would see Caroline Faison’s continental period pieces, and our booth of period furniture with Donnie’s jewelry and next to us Industrial Chic!
Every dealer seems to be having their best show ever here and the crowd of sophisticated designers has grown hugely from past markets–quite interesting. Every one is talking about how much work they suddenly have–from famine to feast in the last six months. The economy does indeed seemed to have turned almost everywhere.
