report from the market – day .5

a whirlwind week in high point + winston-salem nc

tuesday, october 10th – verellen private preview party

artefact@hpmkt-verellen preview party 16-oct10

car service at 7am – a challenging connection in charlotte – made it to the verellen preview party in the ‘nick of time’….landed 2 glorious geode-giaco cocktail tables (arriving at artefact in the next few weeks)

it took us just 10 minutes to declare that this is verellen’s best showroom ever (and it is always the best…but this season there was just a dash of something….)

observations….the green velvets we have been begging for are HERE, NOW!  old favorites restyled for a very 2017 look….new collections say ‘talk amongst yourselves’ – upholstery pieces are made for ‘conversating’….(it was new word to me too!) ….
