MODERN MASTERS: MILO BAUGHMAN AND THAYER COGGIN

“Modern is based on principles. Contemporary is that which is currently stylish. I think this expresses most exactly the new mood that I feel is peculiarly appropriate for today. There is a frank richness that I believe we all secretly want and (within the limits of good taste) should legitimately expect.” – Milo Baughman

I was delighted to participate in my first High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour this fall. In addition to getting in depth tours at a variety of showrooms, it was also wonderful to experience market through the lens of so many talented design friends. As usual, I returned home with no voice and blistered feet, but full of new sources for clients and inspiration for future projects.  One of the many highlights was a visit to the iconic Thayer Coggin showroom.  After back to back meetings, it can be a challenge to keep the attention of a group of designers…As soon as we entered the doors, we knew we were in for a special treat.

I am excited to be joining this lovely group of ladies, High Point Market, Esteem Media, and the Design Bloggers Conference for the 3rd Annual High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour.  The program brings ten leading design bloggers to High Point Market for a 2-day tour of sponsoring showrooms. We will be visiting each sponsor for an up-close look at the exhibitors’ company, showroom and products during a 45 minute presentation and tours. We will then feature and discuss our inspiring finds on our individual blogs and social media accounts. I could not think of a more fun and creative group to take in the inspiration of market.

“We are very excited about our selected bloggers, and were encouraged by the sponsorship commitments made by the High Point Market exhibitors in recognition of the trade influence and consumer reach that the assembled corps of bloggers and social media influencers represent,” commented Adam Japko, founder and CEO of Esteem Media. “I anticipate we’ll have top-notch coverage from our blogger team, with great insight into the highlights and trends they’ll discover in the sponsoring showrooms.”

The tour will kick off on Sunday, October 23, and conclude on Monday, October 24. Additional information on the Design Bloggers Tour can be found at http://www.highpointmarket.org/event/design-blogger-tour.
