    Tomorrow I leave for High Point Market in North Carolina. It’s one of the biggest events in the industry and I have yet to attend (making this trip even more exciting). This past February I met the lovely Lisa Hanly, Vice President, Corporate Communications and Public Relations for Furniture Brands (including: Thomasville, Drexel Heritage, Maitland-Smith, Pearson, Henredon, Broyhill, Hickory, La Barge, Lane Furniture and Lane Venture), who kindly invited me to come and witness High Point for myself.

    The theme for this market is ‘Fashion Focus’ and I am eager to see what’s in store–especially after Lisa sent me these fabulous sketches of Drexel Heritage’s new Viage Collection. In the same vein, I really want to see the two Thomasville tables (below) in person! I will try to post as best as I can while at market, but feel free to follow me on Instagram (AllTheBestBlog) from great photos or Twitter @allthebestblog

    Additionally, Rizzoli is hosting it’s 2nd annual ‘Superstar Book Signing’ on Monday, Oct. 15, at 4pm in the Market Square Courtyard. Authors include Charlotte Moss, Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, Susanna Salk, Florence de Dampierre, and James Lowell Strickland. The first 75 attendees will receive an exclusive sneak-peek of my book Designers at Home: Personal Reflections on Stylish Living.

      Wow…have a wonderful time take lots of iPhone photo’s (when allowed) and use your phone’s recording capabilities too. Makes it great to document without writing or when things happen so quickly that you can’t write things down. Looking forward to your posts, and your book’s appearance in the near future. Cheers!

      Wow Ronda I envy you . I had to miss High Point this fall because I am doing a designer charity show house. But the spring market was amazing. Hope I can meet up with you at the next market. We had talked before my blog is Lovely Diggs.
