What do 2015’s High Point Market Style Spotters have in common? With the exception of ringleader and “Style Spotter Emeritus” Michelle Jennings Wiebe, they’re all new to Market. This year the High Point Market Authority has chosen eight new faces, with hopes of bringing a fresh perspective—particularly to social media—to this year’s markets.
“The Style Spotters represent four corners of North America and bring to the High Point Market their individual style, social media followings and their ability to spot trends affecting the home furnishings industry,” said Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority.
Tasked with scouring the markets (April 18 – 23 and October 17 – 22) to find their favorite products, leaving behind a card on each item they “spot,” these designers will ultimately help create the two post-market Trend Reports.
The 2015 High Point Market Style Spotters are as follows:
Michelle Jennings Wiebe of Studio M, @StudioM_
Arianne Bellizaire of Inspired to Style, @InspiredArianne
Kati Curtis of Kati Curtis Design, @DesignerKati
Beth Dotolo of Pulp Design Studios, @PULPdesigns
Lori Gilder of Interior Makeovers Inc., @LoriGilder
Patti Johnson of Patti Johnson Interiors, @PJohnsonInt
Courtney Lake of Monogram Décor, @CourtneyOutLoud
Jonathan Legate of Jonathan Legate Interior Consultation, @JonathanLegate
Leslie Hendrix Wood of Hadley Court, @Hadley_Court
Attendees are invited to join the Style Spotters on Tuesday of Market (in both the spring and fall) at 9 a.m. for Style Spotters LIVE!, where they will discuss top trends and products at Market. This event is immediately followed by the Style Spotters VIP Tours, which are led by individual Style Spotters.
