The High Point Furniture Market just wrapped up this past weekend, and I was thrilled to once again be a part of all the excitement. After a nearly two year hiatus due to our time abroad, it was great to warm back up to event photography with something fun and low-key. For those who aren't familiar with the furniture world, Market is a time when the otherwise quiet and calm little city we call home turns into a bustling metropolis of furniture makers, buyers, designers, and magazine editors. There are parties and events galore and don't you dare actually drive and park your car in downtown High Point (I've learned that lesson the hard way).
This year, I was approached by Karastan, a division of Mohawk, to photograph a tour and 90-year anniversary event they were hosting as a sponsor of the Design Bloggers Tour. The showroom featured a Roaring 20's theme as a nod to this special anniversary.
For a complete list of the design bloggers, pictured above, included on this year's tour by Esteem Media, see the links at the end of this post. The attendees were greeted with swag bags including the following Karastan branded materials.
