Is your life at a high point?
I can say that mine is because here I am in High Point, North Carolina. People travel here from all over the globe to shop for furniture. It’s the furniture capital of the WORLD. My house is a mismatched mess and this trip was long overdue.
There are a ton of stores in High Point to pick from. After a little research, we decided to check out Furnitureland South, the largest furniture store on earth.
At the entry to the showroom is an 85-foot-high chest of drawers…highboy style.
It’s leg was three times my height. Just image how big the underwear must be that live inside those drawers!
This is the kind of thing that can give a girl Nightstand Nightmares.
Inside, the showroom is 1.2 million square feet. On display is about every brand of couch, chair, bed, nightstand, table, and home decorating accessory known to man. To someone like me who shops for furniture about twice in a lifetime, the place was overwhelming. But, it was also totally cool because it eliminated the need to drive from store to store looking around.
Meet Jessica, the sweetest, most patient design consultant who ever lived.
Jessica: …and this is the Donald Trump line.
Me: Donald Trump has a furniture line?
Jessica: Yeah, a lot of celebrities are getting into furniture now. Paula Dean was here last week; her collection is over…there.
Me: You mean the cook on TV?
Jessica: Yes, that Paul Dean.
Me: I kind of like this headboard. What’s this one called?
Me: How original.
And, best of all, Jessica helped to steer us clear of areas that were not our style. Apparently, animals with horns are hot….for indoor and out.
All in all it was a productive trip.
Do you think your house and the stuff inside is a reflection of your personality?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
