As always, there is so much information along with visual stimulation at places like the High Point furniture market, that trying to put it all into concise sound-bites can often feel a bit forced and artificial.
When I was there I was drawn to the BOURGEOISIE 3D show room.
Believe me, the web site is nice, but DOES NOT do the craftsmanship, design, quality or the very inspiring personal story of Emily Bourgeios and her family justice. It's a small start up family business and Emily's talent along with her passion & conviction for what she and her family do was evident in every piece of furniture in the small, yet very thoughtful showroom.
It was styled beautifully by her friend NEAL JOHNSON, who like Emily, not only had a great eye for detail and style, but was truly inspirational. Visit the web sites. Drop them a line. If you're so inspired--let them know they're on the right path.
It takes a certain amount of courage, risk and just plain hard work to start something.
My hat is literally off to them!
