It’s a wrap part 2!

High Point like all of business and life is about relationships. I’ve highlighted special people in this post that make market even better than I thought possible.


One of my favorite events was at the Bienenstock Library, a remarkable resource of design and history treasures. The rockstar panel included Gary Inman, Libby Langdon and Jane Dagmi. I hope in the future to take advantage of the valuable information the panel taught us.

This is a reunion photo from many markets past of Arianne Bellizaire, Ruthie Staalsen, and Cheryl Luckett. Another example of the wonderful design relationships made through the years at High Point Market.

This crazy über talented furniture designer, Julainne Taylor, made me do it! Love her furniture and love her!

What a privilege it was to be included in the GE Monogram dinner allowing all of us to have a dialogue regarding these fabulous appliances. The dinner was such a treat along with being in the company of these amazing women.

The lovely Ruthann Ross at her husband, Eric Ross’, successful book signing, Southern Homes at Currey & Company Showroom.

Table scapes designed by talented designers were showcased throughout the Alden Parkes Showroom. This beautiful table was by Cynthia Ferguson. I loved her spring colors and even chocolate Easter bunnies! Thank you to the Sponsor Replacement Ltd. for this now traditional market event.

There was a huge turnout for the Woodbridge opening of their new showroom in the Steel building. My friend Marina Case of Red Shutters snapped this picture of moi with my book. Thank you Maria!


The super talented Stacy Kunstel of Dunnes and Dutchess and I in their extremely popular classic custom designs in show stopping color ways.

My friend Jackie Von Tobel artist extraordinaire being interviewed for her latest beautiful art collection at the Left Bank showroom.

Love it when our paths cross of long time designer friends like Jill Erwin and Ann Stuckey.

I was honored to present a CEU “How to Profit Selling Wellness in the Furniture Industry” to designers in the fabulous Alden Parkes Showroom. Designers and market attendees so appreciate Alden Parkes hosting an array of relevant and interesting programs each market.
