High Point Market is an American approach to doing business, sales here are counted in containers, and the brightest stars appear at parties.

Four Hands

One of the brightest interiors of the exhibition was the show-room "Four Hands", where in one room were items from Van Thiel and Ralph Lauren Home. Eduard Molchadsky, director of the officialrepresentations of American factories "Madison Ave": - The company Van Thiel was founded by a Belgian family who moved to the United States, whose ardent love for antiques is clearly traced in the details of their furniture. The founding father of the brand, Rudy Van Thiel, travels the world in search of truly mesmerizing artifacts, be it a Dutch cabinet or a Chinese shoebox portable. Van Thiel tries to convey the spirit of the past in their furniture by hand - they beat off corners, create scuffs, cracked paint, etc. Many American restorers at the exhibition noted the high degree of realism of the era hinted at by this or that Van Thiel piece.

Ralph Lauren

Not surprisingly, this company was chosen to create a special collection of Ralph Lauren - Ralph Lauren Home. And all about the scrupulous approach of Mr. Ralph to his business. The resulting collection fully reflectsPresentation of Mr. Ralph about the country ranch. Many things here are only made in one single decoration, without the possibility of changing the fabric, skin or color of the varnish, this is the whole irreproachable style of Ralph Lauren. Opinion of the editorial office: - Ralph Lauren is true to his ideals - even his ranch turned out to be impeccable, elegant and slightly nostalgic. It must be a reflection even of geniuses.


Another highlight on the High Point Market was the show room of the Mexican company Teracea. Sounds unexpected, but let's see ...

Teracea are very successful manufacturers in the American market, they offer a unique product: tables made from cuts of centuries-old rare species of wood, cabinets, caskets, bedside tables, beds filled with the spirit of the times of Spanish cultural hegemony, the time when America was just opening up, it was born for the European world ...

Cisco Brothers

Quite apart from the turmoil of the exhibition is a spacious show-room of the California company Cisco Brothers. To describe this factory in two words, thenthe phrase "California spirit" would be perfect. Their easy-going design and their particular attention to the ecological aspect of the furniture are perfect for the place they have chosen - a very bright room that has received a second life. Anastasia Topoeva, head of the Moscow office of Personal Creative Architectural Workshop No. 2: - This year I was lucky to visit the exhibition in the furniture city of High Point (USA). The exhibition is held twice a year and is very different in format from European exhibitions - for example held in Milan. Firstly, the format of the exhibition. In addition to the exposition in the huge exhibition pavilion, there is also the main part, which takes place in show rooms, decorated as living rooms with furniture, light, accessories and textiles ... Being inside and moving from room to room, you find yourself in such an impromptu world in which it is easy to imagine The second major difference from the Europeans is that the emphasis here is not on modern and technological modern solutions, but on playing with the classic forms of furniture in various versions. The interior receives a modern sound due to the textile decoration. For example, this year there were many bright fabrics with modern prints in turquoise, blue, pink and other cheerful shades. As well as wood processing - brushing, a combination of rough and smooth surfaces. And of course, there are a lot of so-called American classics - huge soft sofas and armchairs. Thanks to Under it for the opportunity to travel. Opinion of the Editorial Board: - Do you also like things with a story? Armchairs that saw the light long before your birth, a table that has witnessed the main celebration in the life of your grandmothers? But after all, not everyone has such a rich inheritance, and to acquire a little thing with history you want almost everyone. There is a way out - pick yourself something from the Cisco Brothers. Home spirit and great attention to the creation of comfortDistinguishes another company from sunny Florida - The Natural Light. Their show-room at the exhibition was full of all kinds of lamps, united by natural themes. All photos: Эдуард Молчадский
