Update: High Point Market has been postponed until further notice due to Covid-19. More details to come in a few months’ time.
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been invited to attend the Design Blogger Tour at High Point Market in North Carolina this Spring. Along with 9 other esteemed bloggers I’ll be touring the world’s largest interiors trade show bringing you my top picks, favourite finds and all the latest trends.
I can’t tell you what this means. I’ve wanted to visit the States in a design capacity for a while and this opportunity came along just at the right time.
I’m going to the US in April to experience all that this show has to offer. I can’t wait to share my finding with you.
What is High Point Market?
High Point Market is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 75,000 people to High Point, North Carolina, every six months.
If you’re in the interiors world and can’t find a product at High Point, it probably doesn’t exist.
Housed in 180 buildings with over 2000 exhibitors, 100+ countries are represented. There are tens of thousands of products introduced at the show and approximately 10% of attendees are international.
High Point Market Spring show will be held from 25-29 April with the Design Blogger Tour focusing on the 27th and 28th.
Check out the other design bloggers on the tour:
- Bari from Bari J Designs
- Tiffany from Lagnappe
- Diana Elizabeth from the Diana Elizabeth Blog
- Heather and Matt from French and French Interiors

- Chloe from Boxwood Avenue

What I’m Looking Forward to Seeing:
I’m excited to see what kinds of differences we’ll see across the pond. I’m sure there are many influences in the US different to the UK and Europe that will be fascinating to find.
I’m hoping to identify looks, trends and individual pieces that will showcase well in the UK, that we can embrace and use in our current homes, those that will inspire us to update our homes in new and creative ways.
I’m also looking forward to meeting the other bloggers and designers on the tour of course, to see how they think the trends at High Point will merge into current designs, particularly in styles that the UK and Europe love.
You can see more about the bloggers taking part in the tour on the High Point Market website and use the following hashtags to follow our social media posts across the next few months.
I’ll post regularly on my social media and update the blog once I return.
