Last week I had a blast shopping High Point Market, the largest international to-the-trade furnishings industry show in the world. Located in the central part of the state of North Carolina, the city of High Point is 70 miles north of Charlotte and 70 miles southwest of the Raleigh/Durham area.  High Point Market encompasses 180 buildings in the downtown showroom district of the city of High Point, and draws more than 75,000 people for the show’s six day duration every Spring and Fall.

In addition to sourcing a tremendous number of new vendors, I returned to many of the showrooms I saw in the Spring, to see their newest offerings. One of my favorite showrooms is Hooker Furniture, my High Point Market sponsor this Fall and from in the Spring. In May I showed you their newest furniture pieces, my favorite chests, and my favorite chairs. Now that I am more familiar with Hooker Furniture’s wide range of furnishings, upon my return last week I started being able to identify which pieces  belong to which collection and to learn more about the individual collections themselves.

Sanctuary is HF’s best-selling collection, and has been since its introduction five years ago

Sanctuary is HF’s best-selling collection, and has been since its introduction five years ago. It is renowned for its classical silhouettes inspired from all around the world. The collection incorporates well-recognized furniture references from France, Sweden, and England, as well as those from perhaps less familiar lineages, such as Portugal, the British West Indies, Turkey, Morocco, the American Midwest, and Asia.

The Sanctuary Collection is seen as fresh and original because it marries timeless designs that are rich in historical reference with completely unexpected, casual finishes with names like beach, drift, dune, and ebony. The collection is known for using multiple casual finishes on individual pieces, for a two-tone effect that encourages mixing and matching.

One of the new additions to Sanctuary is this tufted bed, in keeping with the collection’s winning formula of a soft, inviting, upholstered bed. While the silhouette is historically familiar, the antique mirror frame adds an unexpected material, texture, and finish to the piece.

The globally-inspired mix is again apparent in this new dining grouping. Nods to French and Swedish furniture are visible in the design of the table, but the casual two-tone finishes and addition of  a mirrored-mosaic motif elevate this table to a much more inclusive, worldly affair.

Another new bedroom grouping in the Sanctuary collection is the upholstered Global Fretwork bed in an ebony finish.

A Moroccan influence in evident in the bed, as well as in the Four-Doored Mirrored Console. Whereas the decorative geometric motifs might be carved in stone, natural wood, or bone in an original Arabesque piece, HF’s Sanctuary Collection interprets the patterns with mirror, ebonized wood, and gilding.

It was a pleasure to visit Hooker Furniture’s High Point showroom again this Fall to see their newest offerings and to go more in depth into their individual collections, like Sanctuary. Here’s a little video with more about Sanctuary and how the collection can help you create your own sanctuary at home.

Enjoy!
