What's at High Point furniture market for me? is Tran Ha's exploration of the furniture showcase with specific buyers in mind. She gives her picks from the market for several different situations...a young couple looking to furnish their home inexpensively, a family with a toddler looking for durability and an architect looking for eclectic pieces with style. Also from H&G this week:
Window treatment designer: Ray West, a former Las Vegas exotic dancer, learned his sewing skills making his own costumes. Now, he's ready to dress your windows. Of potential clients he says, "Either they get me or they don't get me. If you are Auntie Mame, I'm the one."
Gardening:: The scoop on "fast-growing" trees. Tips and warnings for avoiding a landscaping problem.
Dishing: Fancy, not fussy: Rack of lamb with sun-dried tomato and balsamic puree, polenta and sweet roasted carrots.
Banish clutter: Good tips two new books on the never ending subject of what to do with all the stuff...these solutions focus on living with less rather than organizing more. Top photo: From Highpoint, Martha Stewart by Bernhardt
