I just returned from another High Point Market – one of the top furnishing trade shows in the world. It’s always inspiring to discover new vendors.
Here’s just a peek of what we found to be “note-worthy.”
We discovered a line of beautiful large scale paperweights made with lacquered dried flowers – made by a local High Point artist. We place several orders because unfortunately all of her pieces were sold out by the time we arrived!
Vahallan is another company that has been on our radar! They create a line of handmade, hand painted wallpapers out of Lincoln, Nebraska. We were finally able to see their process first-hand!
Blaxsand is another company that we frequently visit at High Point. They recently joined forces with a “cohab” that partners with smaller, unique vendors. One line in particular drew us in – beautiful, one of a kind furniture that is designed and built by reformed prisoners. These now rehabilitated men have discovered their value and purpose in life through their craft.
This pewter flower that is embedded in each piece of furniture is a “calling card.” One can be found in each piece of hand-crafted furniture. Each artist is given a pewter flower that they keep in their pocket – a reminder of their newly found craft – and purpose in life.
This recent trip solidified an absolute “trend” that we are seeing these days: one of a kind, hand-crafted pieces. What better way to bring meaningful objects into our home?
