Harker Design takes many active steps in staying current on the happenings and design-world trends for our clients; attending and presenting at High Point Market (click here for virtual tours of previous market spaces) is one significant way in which we accomplish that. Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, our entire team works relentlessly on designing our upcoming showroom. This includes everything from choosing fabrics, wall coverings, furniture design and the overall aesthetic. After the design plan is complete it is pre-fabricated in our Idaho Falls headquarters. Everything is then trucked to High Point, North Carolina, where it is installed and brought to life.
Our showroom at High Point, allows other designers and manufacturers to see what is that we are currently producing, and provides the perfect platform for networking and connecting. Our designers also journey to this furniture market with specific clients and projects in mind. At other vendor’s showrooms, they can see and purchase new introductions for furniture, fabrics and accessories… in short: all things design. We are also able to scout out what manufacturers are looking for and looking to do.
High Point Market is geared towards high-end, high-quality goods that we are seeking to share and purchase. With a massive amount of showroom space, 11.5 million square feet to be exact, the team must have a plan of where to go and who to see. With the market only lasting 1 week, time is limited and extremely valuable. Although we often complete projects in secluded destination locations, designers sift through many trending modes and large conferences like High Point, to find our clients specific, unique and fitting items for their home. Our involvement in High Point Market requires money, time, planning, execution and team work. But it is through High Point that designers continue to perfect their art form and deliver to you, our clients, the best possible design.
