Maxwell's People Pics & Highlights

High Point Market Spring 2011

Barbara Barry walked us through her new collection at Baker, which was an incredible treat.

Being at High Point Market this week has been a total busman's holiday — delightfully indulging in cool, new furnishings and accessories from all over the world and fantasizing about putting it all together in a new home one day. What's particularly addictive, however, is meeting the people behind the scenes and hearing the first hand stories of what is really going down in the furniture world. To kick off today, here are a few highlights with people and party shots to give you a bit of the flavor of High Point 2011.
