Editor's Picks: High Point Market Finds

5 products that caught the eye of Senior Design and Markets Editor Tori Mellott at Spring Market

From Tori Mellott

Designer collaborations took center stage this High Point Market and included introductions from the likes of Kelly Wearstler, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Windsor Smith and many, many others. 

Good reproduction Venetian mirrors are really tough to find and great ones, like this beauty from David Phoenix for Hickory Chair, are next to impossible. I’m so impressed with the craftsmanship and design of this spectacular mirror.  In addition to being stylistically nimble, the added green glass adds a touch of the unexpected.

In today’s world, customization is king. Manufacturers and retailers have caught the personalization bug and have started to implement programs where everything is one-of-a-kind. Theodore Alexander launched their customization program last year and they’ve added to their expansive capabilities. The Anson Table, custom finished in Hibiscus with gold detailing, is just one example of how you can leave your mark on design.

Legendary designer Jeffrey Bilhuber has teamed up with Henredon to launch his first furniture collection at market. The assortment includes uber-functional pieces like credenzas with ample storage and kid-friendly cocktail tables but also quirky conversation pieces like this adorable slipper chair with turned legs.

Candy-colored lacquer occasional pieces put them on the map, but the boutique brand Oomph has branched out to include full-scale furniture, lighting, art, and fabric. With its soft wavy pattern, the ceramic Greenwich Lamp is available in 13 colors and looks smashing when displayed as a pair.

Famous for their Atlanta, GA showroom as well as their drool-inducing Instagram feeds, Courtney and Randy Tilinski (aka Mr. & Mrs. Bungalow), are the duo behind Bunglaow Classic, the stunning furniture collection that falls under the Highland House umbrella. This twin-size canopy bed was the show-stopping moment of this market’s introductions, but the collection in its entirety is sheer perfection. 

Caution: statement piece ahead! I love the exaggerated lines and curves of this settee designed by Windsor Smith for Century Furniture and it would be the perfect piece to make a grand entry hall epic!
