The HGTV.com team recently visited High Point Furniture Market to rub elbows with the design world’s movers-and-shakers and take the pulse of what’s to come. After several days of (blissful!) interior design saturation, I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that antiques are HOT! Think mid-day-sun-baking-asphalt-in-the-middle-of-the-Mojave-desert hot. To capitalize on the trend, most showrooms had a curated, collected-over-time look that mixed their newly-manufactured products with a few vintage-inspired pieces.

Traditional furniture and accessories have always been a Market mainstay. Reproductions of everything from heavily ornamented Louis XVI settees to pale Gustavian commodes have never really gone out of style; but at this Market they were joined by the real deal: centuries-old case goods, lighting, classical sculpture, architectural salvage and quirky, one-of-a-kind accessories.

Here are just a few of the goodies I spied at Market; unfortunately, most of these gems are available only to the trade so I couldn’t include links — hit local antique shops or online sites like V&M, 1stdibs or Ruby Lane to search for similar items.

  4. The girls love to shop, at American Apparel, Forever XXI, American Eagle, H Aldo and other budget friendly chains. On a whirlwind tour of downtown shops, the girls worked the racks like pros, pointing out the things they liked or disliked.

  5. Your talent is genuinely appreciated!! Thank you. You saved me a great deal of frustration. I switched from Joomla to Drupal towards the WordPress platform and Ive fully embraced WordPress. Its so considerably easier and easier to tweak. Anyway, thanks again. Awesome domain!
