Everyone has been asking, “What did you like best from High Point Market?” I’ve been fumbling for an answer to that question since Wednesday. But as of today, I fumble no more! I have spent this Saturday afternoon going through our pictures from last week and have taken stock of what really inspired me. I’m excited to share my top 8 finds, so let’s just jump right in!

1. Look at this sofa!

Worn Leather Sofa

Deep Leather Sofa

Yes, it’s as comfortable as it looks (I tried it out for all of you). This deep leather sofa from Regina Andrew makes you want to see how many people can comfortably sit on it. I would guess at least 10. It is massive, and I want it!

2. Neon Caesar

Caesar Bust

Caesar Bust

Come on! You know you want a bright yellow bust of Caesar in your living room! No? Well, it may not be for everyone, but I adore this thing from Phillips Collection. I think Augustus would approve, too.

3. Um, there’s a fly on my plate.

Buggy Plates

Buggy Plates

I bugged out over these! I want to serve my dinner guests on the Dransfield + Ross plates. Of course, I need to learn to cook before I invite people over — but, that’s for another blog on another day.

4. Summer Iglu



The iglu (no, I didn’t misspell that – Skyline Design spells it that way) is so cozy and inviting. And again, I crawled inside this pod to test it out for all of you. Can’t you just see this on your back patio?

5. Need a hand?

Hand Table

Hand Table

This table may be too much for my home, but I would certainly admire it in a friend’s house. Would you be bold enough to buy it from Euro Style?

6. Yellow Leather

Yellow Sofa

Yellow Sofa

I know, I know, it’s another leather sofa. But, the leather sofas just sort of called my name from across the room. C.R. Laine was one of my favorite showrooms. Their pieces were amazing!

7. Get growing!



Your plants will thank you for treating them so well. Jonathan Adler made sure that these pots stood out from the boring clay ones our mamas had.

8. That’s a real kick in the…

Foot Table

Foot Table

If I didn’t lose you with the hand, the foot coffee table from Noir may be where I go too far. What can I say? This traditional-style boy was getting crazy at High Point Market.

So there you have it — my favorite finds from HPM. What do you think?

    The colorful planters look retro and modern at the same time. Unique.

    I am with you!! I would LOVE to have the first leather sofa (although the yellow ain't too shabby either).. and, if it didn't take up my entire tiny patio, I would crawl in the iglu and sleep the afternoon away!! Awesome!

    Wow, really interesting stuff. Modern and rustic at the same time. There are similarly-styled couches at High Point Antique Art and Design Center

    How can I get my hands on that iglu?

  5. […] GRANT: They’re cultured and cool! I have several spread throughout my house (a couple were featured in Camille’s post). Even if you’re not a fan of the traditional looks, the new spins are pretty neat. Come on — who doesn’t love Neon Caesar?! […]
