If you guys were here in the fall, you know that I was asked to attend High Point Market with the fabulous group from Esteem Media. It was literally a dream trip and I was on cloud nine when they reached out again, earlier this year, and invited me to attend Design Influencers Conference that they host every year.
What is Design Influencers Conference? It is the one conference that I have been dying to attend for years, and never had had the chance. This conference is the only one of it’s kind for those in the Design Industry. With the constant changes in our industry, from social media and seo to partnerships and up and coming trends, it can be hard to keep up! That’s where Design Influencers Conference steps in. They fill us full of new ideas, networking with other designers and brands, answer our questions on social media from top influencers, experts and brands in our industry. I am giddy that something like this exists for us!! Where else can you go and listen to others who have helped start the booming influencer craze and learn new techniques for your business in the same place 🙂
One of the main things I am ready to see and meet are the incredible sponsors that are lined up for this year!
If there is a lighting company that I stalk heavily, and I do mean heavily, it’s this company. Lighting is a huge part of what I do on every project! I always want it to make a huge statement and Circa Lighting does just that. The impact these lights can make to a space are truly breathtaking!
If you follow along on Instagram, you might remember when I traveled to the Monogram Demonstration in Chicago right after High Point Market. At that point, I had already spec’ed monogram for several homes but became enamored with their products once I actually had a chance to use them in person. Hello induction cooktop and advantium oven! Seriously google it :). So excited they are here and can’t wait to see what new technology they have to show off!
Incase you haven’t heard, quartz is on fire these days. It is always my top pick for residential and commercial spaces, hands down….you just can’t beat it!! Hanstone is ready to show off their gorgeous selections, I personally have my eye on several from their boutique collection! So many have the look of marble, without the upkeep….that’s my love language 😉 I can’t wait to see what they have on display!
Goodness, I love this company. I originally saw them at market and knew I had to find places for several of their pieces ;). So many of their lines are right up my alley. I have used Universal several times of the past few years and my love for them started again when we toured at High Point Market. They have such a wide range of styles and each piece has amazing quality! They are always one of my top go-to places to spec furniture pieces from.
High Point Market
Pretty sure this is the furniture market mecca of the world. I died over and over again. If you are in the design industry, it’s an absolute must that you attend High Point Market at some point in the near future. It was amazing, building after building of not just furniture, but of amazing inspiration and excitement. It is truly life changing to see what lies ahead in the design world!
Creative Home Ideas
I am super excited to see this company, I haven’t met them before! The are a design house that makes luxury bedding, bath, kitchen, window treatments, decorative pillows, throw blankets and rugs at an affordable price. All are available online, at large department stores and bed and bath speciality stores. They have super cute items that I can’t wait to see on display!!
