Shopping with the pros lets us know what local buyers (Toms-Price, Walter E. Smithe, Domicile, Macy's and Darvin) picked up at the big furniture show, High Point, this October. It covers the pieces they chose, a profile of the customers they were shopping for and when it will be in store.
Also included - this years trends from High Point...bamboo (natural or faux), customization (made to order programs), lacquer (from Bungalow 5, shown at left, and Shine), leather (the price is set to rise), green furniture (more manufacturers are going eco) and contrasts in color (bold and bright in graphic patterns).
