The HF List: High Point 2008: Best of the BedsThursday, April 17, 2008
Our fearless leaders made their triannual trek to High Point, North Carolina for the big furniture market. As usual, they are on the hunt for new, innovative pieces to bring some extra punch to our showroom floors. I got to peruse through their purchases and pick out my favorite pieces to share with y'all. So, without further ado, here is Part One of the High Point 2008 series: Best of the Beds.
The deep tufts on this headboard make this bed ultraclassic- like a Chesterfield Sofa in bed form. Upholster this one with a smooth textured fabric like velvet to add to the luxuriousness.
What a standout piece this is! If you're looking for a bedroom focal point, your search is over. The carved wood looks worn in and comfortable. Top this bed with earthy sheets and blankets to complete the rustic look.
High drama for your bedroom with this extra tall tufted wingback headboard. This bed would be perfect for a room with a cutout wall. It's another classic shape (in this case, a traditional wingback chair) remade as a bed and given a dose of funk. Fun fact: This bed has the honor of being used in the Empire Hotel in New York City!
If you're a bit more shabby chic than mod, try the Provence Bed on for size. Antiqued paint lends a vintage effect. I would put this piece in a girl's room because it's sweet and feminine.
