High Point Furnishings Market ended in October, but for our Pulp Design Studios designers it’s always in the forefront of our minds because it doesn’t just end at attending market. We get to bring back all the information and new vendors we’ve found, incorporate them into our design libraries, interior design projects, and share them with you!
This past fall, one of our favorite experiences was visiting the French Heritage showroom. First of all, it was a new-to-us showroom. It’s always exciting for us to find new vendors and resources. When we first found out that French Heritage was sponsoring our visit to High Point, we were excited to look closely at their line and see how we could incorporate what they do so well into our more modern design work. We were so pleasantly surprised to see how fashion forward and fresh their take is on traditional pieces!
Upon entry of the showroom and meeting the owners, the first thing that struck us was their hospitality and family-owned feel. For such an established company, we were surprised to see that the owners were so involved. And, let me tell you, that shows in their product, their service, and in their design. The warmth that we received from the owners exuded throughout the showroom and throughout their product. Every detail had a story behind it and every detail was thought through. And, as designers, the service and knowledge we received was unparalleled.
So, about that impeccable detail we mentioned… The quality in the hardware, the wood inlay, the fabric selections, the upholstery, and the stunning finishes was exceptional. Our design team ooh-ed and ahh-ed throughout the entire showroom tour.
From French Heritage’s in-stock pieces, to their customizable pieces, to their completely bespoke capabilities… We were in designer heaven.
You can read more about French Heritage in our first post about them! But, for our designer friends and for our clients who get excited by fashion-forward classics, there are three things we want you to know:
1. French Heritage stocks a broad range of product right here in the US.
2. Much of the French Heritage line can be customized!
3. French Heritage can build completely custom pieces to our design specifications. Your own atelier with the same quality French Heritage is known for. As designers, that excites us!
Even though you’ve likely seen French Heritage products in some big retailer’s windows, we are so excited to be sharing them with you from our perspective – the designer’s perspective.
Thanks again to French Heritage for bringing us to High Point this fall… We are fans!
