Twice a year, the design industry gathers at High Point Market to preview the newest product launches, make connections with colleagues, and — maybe our favorite part — buy and sell vintage and antique finds. It’s a must-attend on the event calendar for tens of thousands of interior designers, and 2022 is no different. 

This spring’s show is scheduled for April 2 – 6, while the fall is set for October 22 – 26. For designer attendees, there are over 2,000 exhibitors to visit, and over 12 million square feet of showroom space to explore. No, you’re not expected to come anywhere close to that number, and yes, we recommend comfy walking shoes (based on experience).

As with every season, there are a number of special events that are of note to designers (in addition to every evening’s cocktail parties, of course). A Style Spotters Live event will highlight the market’s trends, and the Style Spotters themselves will be available for guided tours of must-see showrooms. And for ongoing event programming (or just a coffee or snack in a lovely space), drop by The Point (shown above) to see what’s going on each day. Browse the full event schedule to see even more — there are typically several hundred events happening every Market.

Find out what’s passé and what’s here to stay. Register for our Love It or Hate It event at 214 Modern on March 31st for free here.
