Hard to believe High Point Furniture Market begins next week. In fact, Saturday April 21st is opening day for High Point. There are lots of social and educational events scheduled. And, of course, there is always plenty of free food. If this your first time to visit market, watch this video.
While at market, come by and visit us in the Suites of Market Square on the ground floor in space G-4029. You can’t miss us we’re the only one with bright pink and white space. Jackie Von Tobel will be there signing copies of her two books. The Directory of Window Treatments and The Design Directory of Bedding are absolutely the most inspiring and beautifully illustrated books for custom window treatments and bedding.

Next stop Chicago!
If you can’t make it to High Point then maybe I’ll see you in Chicago at IWCE Vision12. Attending this show also gives you access to the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). You can find us at booth 245. Anna & Johnny Davis will also be in Chicago to help answer any questions you may have regarding Studio or any of our other products.
After the shows, I’ll be sharing photos of some of my favorite market finds from my iPhone 4S or my new iPad. The new 8 megapixel camera allows me to be more mobile at market. I usually have to wag around my Nikon SLR camera with the external flash. My new iPad has an app that will allow me to take a photo and make notes right on the photo. Can’t wait to test it out at the shows.
