Our itinerary for High Point Buyers Tour is finalized and we couldn’t be more stoked! We think we have a stellar line up of private and exclusive events for our first time High Point Buyers Tour. Here’s a taste of what we’ll be doing.
We arrive on Friday and kick off our tour with The Designer’s Guide to Upholstery with Kirstin Drohan. At our Welcome Dinner courtesy of High Point Convention and Vistors Bureau, Style Spotter and our good design friend, Jeanne Chung will Talk Trends with us. We’ll be giving our tour group a heads up of what to look for at Market.
On Saturday, the first day of Market we ‘re going from dawn to dusk. Breakfast at High Point Theater and the Barry Dixon Panel and then our adventure begins exploring the IHFC floors with stops and presentations at Codarus, the Wrenn wing and much more. We’ll move onto Market Square to see Thibaut and Eastern Accents. Finally, we’ll end the day with a tour of the IMC Home Textile Pavilion a glass of wine and meet up and a video PR opportunity for each of you with High Point Market Authority. Not to mention we hope to squeeze in a quick tour of ADC with The Antiques Diva.
Sunday means breakfast with Kelly Weartsler and WITHIT, lunch at Taylor Burke Home and we’ll spend time in the afternoon with Jana Platina Phipps & Robert Allen for a visual tour of the evolution of passementerie. Then onto the outdoor concert with Christopher Cross.
Monday we have a private luncheon and tour of Currey and Co. and Fromenthal followed by desert at CR Laine as Tobi Fairley shows us her new collection.
Tuesday we visit the Madcap Cottage guys to learn about their new ventures and what it takes to put together your own line. At the end of the day, we’ll be whisked away to our farewell dinner at the Green Valley Grill.
Finally, on Wednesday, we end our design adventure at Design Camp at Jaipur.
