The Stephenson House team travelled to High Point, North Carolina for the largest furnishings show in the world. A truly inspirational market, we found ourselves immersed in the future of interior design, with the rich history of the past woven throughout.
From the intriguing design styles we'll bring to life in our own design projects, to the new and antique pieces we've sourced for the Shoppe, we can't wait to bring the inspiration seen at High Point Market to your home.
Notable Style Movements
The future of lighting is a refined balance of architectural forms and technological innovation, seamlessly merging fashion and function. Portable lighting was the highlight of High Point Market, noted for its impact when used as a styling component, as well as its capability to bring luxury lighting outdoors. Indirect lighting was an equally memorable feature, creating architectural artforms to adorn your ceilings and your walls.
Dark marble in rich red and brown tones, furniture in deep aubergines; this use of colour is a style movement being seen throughout luxury interiors in a stunning way. Dark tones are no longer reserved for the accents in a neutral space, they're here to define interiors in a lasting way.
Creating textural interest always begins with mixed materials and textiles, a hallmark of well-edited layers that we specialize in. The refined materials seen throughout High Point Market left us inspired for the balance they bring to interiors, like cast glass tables set in metal, atop a luxe cashmere rug.
Coming to the Shoppe
Travel is an invaluable resource when sourcing quality antiques. From High Point, North Carolina, to Spain and France, Katie and the Stephenson House team have been travelling to source antiques that bring unparalleled character to your space.
Filled with history and beauty, we've found some truly special pieces that have lived lifetimes across the globe.
Forms of Stone
Floor to ceiling, stone stole the show.
From solid stone forms carved into statement furniture pieces, to alabaster lighting with fully integrated LED systems, natural stone is a feature of remarkable design.
It was fascinating to see the innovative ways that new design technologies utilize the natural stone that has been a pillar of interiors for centuries, proving that natural materials never go out of style.
