This spring saw a true return to form for High Point Market, with in-person events thriving even more than last fall. Our favorite? Our signature “Love It or Hate” event, held at 214 Modern Vintage. This season’s edition included one of our liveliest panels yet, hosted by our very own Michael Boodro, featuring designers Ariene Bethea, David Phoenix, Holly Phillips, Jesse Carrier and Josh Greene. They offered up their no-holds-barred opinions on the season’s hottest design trends—and yes, the audience got in on the action too.

Below, check out some photos of the event. And if you weren’t at this season’s High Point Market, no worries: A) there’s always fall, and B) we recorded the event for The Chairish Podcast, so you’ll be able to hear it in an upcoming episode soon.
