Mill Collective has moved to a new space in the Bobo Intriguing Objects building located at 300 W. Broad Ave., which is open to registered buyers during the October High Point Market, Oct. 13 - 21.
A gallery-style display of works from 15 new and 13 returning Mill Collective exhibitors, including custom furniture and lighting makers, occupies 4,000 square feet on the historic building’s third floor.
This season’s Mill Collective exhibitor-roster will additionally attract interior designers, architectural specifiers and boutique retailers with an offering of artisan textiles, hand forged furniture hardware and outdoor planters suitable for commercial design projects.
While a majority of the makers are East Coast-based, Mill Collective welcomes custom furniture designer Beech Boy from Chicago, art resource Zoe Bios Creative from Los Angeles, and La Cabane from Belgium, which produces its large scale planters from German clay.
Woman-owned and operated businesses account for almost 40 percent of the exhibitors, including furniture makers and designers Aspen Golann, Alison Uljee Zavracky, Christina Boy and Alicia Dietz.
The Mill Collective mission to connect art and craft furnishings makers with buyers was conceived by Tim Branscome and Luciana Mikos in 2016. Mill Collective has exhibited biannually in various High Point showroom locations since its inception, including Cisco Brothers, Plant Seven and Red Egg.
At the turn of the last century, the three-story building located at 300 W. Broad Ave. is documented to have housed one of High Point’s earliest multi-line furniture showrooms.
Today, its first two floors are occupied by the exhibitor Bobo Intriguing Accents. Along with Mill Collective, the two companies belong to HPxD, a new initiative that opens member showrooms to the interior design trade year-round.
