Product introductions at the spring High Point Market, April 22-26, are highly anticipated, especially with the collections ready to debut from some of the biggest names in the design industry. From Steve Leung for Theodore Alexander to Michelle Workman for French Heritage, read about six of the new lines you can set your sights on in April.
Windsor Smith for Century Furniture
California-based interior-designer-to-the-stars Windsor Smith flourishes in her partnership with Century Furniture to produce new "heirlooms of tomorrow." Smith has added a dash of classicism to a diverse array of materials and bespoke details in the service of her end goal: modern statement pieces with staying power.
Jo Sampson for Drexel
British designer Jo Sampson will have her stamp on a new collection for Drexel, formerly Drexel Heritage. While Drexel returns to its roots as a consumer resource for modern furniture designs – complete with a new core line of upholstered and wood furnishings – Sampson will impart her luxury aesthetic in the Jo Sampson for Drexel Collection.
Michelle Workman for French Heritage
It's fitting that the early 20th century Art Deco movement originated in France. Published interior designer Michelle Workman, a self-proclaimed Francophile, and lifestyle resource French Heritage embrace the style moderne with a rich collection of Deco-inspired pieces for the designer's inaugural furnishings launch.
Jeffrey Bilhuber for Henredon
Achieving 'AD100' status with Architectural Digest magazine in 2017 is but one feather in Jeffrey Bilhuber's cap. Along with his A-list clients, published projects and design books, Bilhuber adds to this year's triumph with the launch of his eponymous furnishings line for Henredon, surely driven by the American Master designer's "optimism for the future."
David Phoenix for Hickory Chair
Also hailing from the Golden State, the luminous clientele of David Phoenix codify his interiors as "California Elegant" — that is, rooms where relaxation and luxury can coexist. Phoenix is the newest asset in Hickory Chair's ensemble of interior designers producing edited furnishings collections for the venerable brand.
Steve Leung for Theodore Alexander
Global design star Steve Leung, recently named one of 'The 30 Most Influential Designers' by FORBES China, and the Theodore Alexander brand share Leung's vision for the 'Luxury of Serenity.' In upholstered pieces, for example, the theme is expressed with "cosseting armchairs and expressive backrests to evoke the feeling of protection and sanctuary."
