Phillips Collection lineup of events for High Point Market.

Phillips Collection has announced their Spring High Point Market events schedule to bring exciting social engagement and inspiration aimed at connecting the design, trade and hospitality industries. Teaming up with two world-class design experts for curated programming that will cover navigating luxury and living life colorfully. They will kick off the market on Saturday, April 2, from 4pm-6pm, in IHFC C202 for  “Celebrating 20 Years of Living Life Colorfully” with guest host Patti Carpenter, Global Trend Ambassador, and Principal of Carpenter + Company. 

As Phillips Collection honors their two decades working together with an event to highlight her immense talent interrupting global trends across fashion, interiors and design industries. Joining Patti at the event is Phillips Collection CEO + President, Mark Phillips, as they share insights about the evolution of their brands and what goes into sourcing unique collections on a global scale. Phillips Collection invites all guests to RSVP HERE.

Mark Phillips shares “I am excited to celebrate Patti’s decades of experience in the furnishings industry. We have always shared a passion for luxury and products, color and design and each of us takes inspiration from nature and the world around us.” 

Patti commented, "I cannot believe that it has been 20 years! Time certainly flies when you are doing what you love and with people you love. I began these years with Mark and Julie Phillips, who I call my godparents in this industry. I gave my very first trend presentation for the Phillips Collection in the early 2000's, when we had a licensed collection of ceramic and lacquer together. Our relationship only deepened as we traveled to Guatemala, Vietnam and Thailand and developed a collection that also included ceramics from Nicaragua and Peru. We share our passions and values of working with and supporting artisans in ways that are mindful of our planet. I consider them my family and I am so happy and blessed by our long standing relationship, in this industry and beyond. I can never thank them enough for welcoming and supporting me through these years." 

From 10:00-11:00am, on Tuesday, April 5, join Mark Phillips, and Barrie Livingstone, Interior Designer, Author, and Retailer - House of Barrie, for a lively discussion on “Navigating Luxury”. Originally presented in the fall, this event was rescheduled as a way to bring the design and trade communities together for a hybrid experience. With dual segments offering Live from HPMKT in person engagement and live on zoom element, so that guests can join virtually should buyers not be attending market. Phillips Collection invites all guests to RSVP HERE.

This event will feature an inside look at Phillips Collection’s expansive 400,000 square foot High Point, NC warehouse facility, while Mark and Barrie discuss the complexities of navigating luxury, and importing and exporting luxury goods.  Guests will enjoy delicious brunch style bites, coffee, and tea during their warehouse tour as well. 

Barrie Livingstone stated, “Navigating luxury is probably the single most important thing I do as a designer. Successful interior designers understand that perceived value is everything. I say that perception is 9/10ths’s the law. Perceived value evaluates to quality of construction, look of finish and proportion - all things that Phillips Collection knows intimately in designing their luxury products. When you have those three elements in your design - you have everything. I can’t wait to work with Mark Phillips on this talk and to share insights on how we navigate luxury.”

In addition to Phillips Collection’s events schedule the friendly and outgoing members of the Phillips crew will be on hand during the market to assist their customers and potential clients from 9am to 6pm, in IHFC C-202. Whether individually buyers or in groups, their team offers showroom tours for a full showcase of the newest Spring collections, highlighting best selling categories such as furniture, wall decor, sculptures, accessories to and offering copies of their newest print catalog: “Impress”.


All guests are also invited to visit Phillips Collection’s warehouse located a few minutes from the IHFC from 8am - 5pm at 916 Finch Ave. Free shuttles are offered throughout HPMKT to transport attendees to the facility, allowing them to browse through even more one-of-a-kind collections and exquisite products that showcase Phillips Collection’s unique mastery of modern + organic products.
