Spring Highpoint Furniture Market Day 1

Highpoint Furniture Market is always a whirlwind of parties, friends and an overload of furniture, accessories and art but boy is it fun!

( If you follow my Instagram account "bridgetbeari" you saw my top trends for the up coming season. )

      Here are my top finds from Day 1 - Fall Market 2015.

We have learned a few new tricks after years of attending the market. Our newest one is coming in on Friday morning. Shops are open and all the good deals happen on Friday.

First stop is always Verellen and Textures Imports: Leah treated us to a fabulous lunch and wine! Thanks Verellen! We love the new addition  - Oliver the mastiff/ rottweiller. He needs a Bridget Beari Color named after him.



Here is there marilyn sofa - which we are doing a 10ft. one for our ATL job  - GORG!



Love these cube ottomans. The stitching details are perfection! 



That beautiful Belgian linen slipcover look



The double flange detail - Love! 




Did I mention they are making outdoor furniture now!!


They also had art from Belgium - we sold 4 paintings! Gorg! 



We placed our orders and even a few for ourselves! 

Next door is Texture Imports - we loaded down the Range Rover with Buddha's, tables, and votives. 

Beautiful turtles for Mexico









Off to the Visual Comfort party only to find that Kelly was sick - So sad! Her new products were killer. 

Loved the black textured sconces



Aerin Lauder had some beautiful pendants with stunning gold insides. Thomas O'Brien was even lurking around a corner in his area. 



Next into Spicher and Company - the art reminded me of Kit Kemp, the London designer






The floorcloths were awesome! 






Off to the Antique and Design Center with so much to see - Turkish pots, tea towels, blankets, throws, garden urns. This is my favorite place at market…..









We caught up with my friend MDD - Mary Douglas Drysdale and had dinner at Theodore Alexander. A nice sit down break. 



Then off to the Baker party….

It was the Hollywood catwalk with pictures and celebrity guests. What a ball! 











We ended the evening with cocktails at the Proximity Hotel and who arrived but Jeff Lewis, Gage, Jenny and gang! What a treat and that's just day 1. Wait for tomorrow's day 2 at Market!
