What to Do At High Point Market October 2017 ~ Lisa Mende Design

Welcome to High Point Market Week!   Bi-Annually, High Point opens its doors to the Interior Design Industry and introduces us to the latest and greatest in Home Decor!  If you work in the interior design or home decor industry, this is an event you don't want to miss!  Since 2013, I have written a pre-market guide to what to do and see at High Point.  I continue to write my guide because new attendee's come each market.  I have been attending High Point Market for many years, so many so in fact, that I had to say how long because it would date me.  Let's just say I have been coming for a long time and have seen the growth and transitions the market has gone through for several decades.  High Point Market is bigger and better than ever!  Here are my recommendations for how to best prepare for High Point Market!

Katy Skelton for Charleston Forge

High Point Market is upon us folks!  I always get so excited to see new collections from my favorite resources.  One resource that I have enjoyed over the years is Charleston Forge
Charleston Forge is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina where true artisans live and create beautiful furniture with great pride.  Every piece of Charleston Forge "has a sense of hand".  They take pride in making each piece "one piece at a time".  There is no high-speed production line at Charleston Forge.  Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean they are slow or take forever to deliver.  I have been quite pleased with their production time for custom pieces for clients.  If you don't know this company and are heading to High Point, put it on your calendar!  If you are a consumer and see something on their website you like, let me know and I can order it for you.  Better yet, if you are having trouble finding something for your home or client, why not let them create a custom piece for you?

Great Items Available From Hampton Showhouse!

It is always so sad when a showhouse closes and I have to dismantle the room but as the saying goes, "All Good things must come to an end".  And so it goes, it is time to uninstall my Hampton Designer Showhouse project.  If anyone is in need of great items for your porch, sunroom or basically any room in the house, I have some great buys on these items!  See below for prices! Email me at if you would like more info or would like to purchase.  The first person who says they want to purchase and pays within 24 hrs will win the item.  If you are local and can pick up the items will be available for pick up this Thursday.  What doesn't sell will be coming back to Charlotte on Friday.  So "Speak Now or forever, hold your peace".
