High Point Furniture Market is in full swing. It has been three days of design inspiration, new products, and amazing conversations with some of the leaders in the industry. Here are a few of my favorite moments so far. On Friday, I had the pleasure of getting to go to Hickory Chair’s book signing event featuring four of their designers, Alexa Hampton, Suzanne Kasler, Mariette Himes Gomez, and Thomas O’Brien.
Alexa Hampton is one of my favorite designers. I’ve had the great pleasure of getting to visit with her through Liz and her daughters. She is known for combining “classic inspiration with modern sensibilities” . On a personal level she is witty, funny, and smart. Every time we sit down to chat, I learn something. I always look forward to the time we get to spend talking with her.
I was so excited to see her new book. It officially comes out November 5th. Liz gave me a copy at the book signing. I was so excited to get it and have been reading it every night.
It is full of great design inspiration.
Here are a couple of pictures from her showroom at Hickory Chair:
