Welcome to Round 2 of the Steelyard High Point Market Recap. To close out our time at HPMKT and bring to you all the things you need to know, today’s recap includes a roundup from the 7th Steelyard Nail Polish Trail, an aggregation of showroom shots from some of the hottest brands at Market, and finally, some takeaways from our incredible Trolley Talks.
While we are exhausted, we are also really energized by what we saw and experienced. From incredible product launches to an overwhelming enthusiasm toward design professionals, this Market was special. And while we know we cannot capture everything that happened, here are a few highlights.
The Steelyard Designer’s Lounge has a new home: 200 Steele. The Lounge will have all the comforts you've come to enjoy, with a little extra luxury. So join us to relax, charge your phone, grab lunch, chat and mingle, and get the inside scoop on all we have going on at Market. And we’ll have swag like always, including access to the Steelyard Nail Polish Trail Vault!
The Steelyard Market Experience is already loaded with fun, but we decided to add a little more. Because let's be serious - can you ever have too much fun? And more importantly - who doesn't like winning things?
While meeting the authors and having a signed copy of a book is always wonderful, those things aren’t necessary to actually read the book and take away the lessons and enjoyment from it.
So for those of you not heading to HPMKT next week, we want you to know what books and authors are making a splash there so you can be in the loop. And if you will be there, pick up a signed copy for a friend who isn’t going!
You don’t need to be at High Point Market to be in the know about which brands are launching new collections, or which designers are introducing new collaborations with a manufacturer. Like we said, we’ve got you!
By celebrity, we mean an event headlined by an industry personality. Let's be honest - this industry is full of “personalities”, but these are some of the boldest, most fun, and frankly, just some of our favorite people in the industry. So here goes - the “More Events, Celebrity Edition” blog!
We are thrilled to announce that Vanguard Furniture has now joined the Steelyard family. Not only will you be able to see all of their products on Steelyard (coming soon), but our members will be able to experience this legendary brand in some unique ways at HPMKT.
8 new colors and a chance to win a $1,000 travel voucher for Fall HPMKT?? The Steelyard Nail Polish Trail is getting even more amazing each time! From Alexa's Market Plum (Theodore Alexander) to Orchid (Gabby), we've got a color for everyone this Spring...or at least that nail polish lover in everyone’s life.
While we’ve been trying not to over-hype the fact that Market is getting super close, IT’S TIME TO PANIC! Just kidding...really! But it is time to start locking in your schedule if you want to make the most of your time at Market. And, as always, we’ve got you covered.
Have you ever attended a panel or industry talk on a trolley? Want to?On Monday of Market, the Steelyard Trolley will be parked at The Point for three Trolley Talks. It isn't complicated - there will be talks and they are on a trolley. And one offers CEU credits. Yay!
Now that we’ve told you how to kick off your Market in style at The Point on Friday afternoon, it's time to share some of the other wonderful things happening around town during Market. From Kindel to Vanguard, and Sunpan to Verellen, we've got you covered! Stay tuned for more, but start locking in these dates now...
When it comes to packing for High Point Market, you’ll hear a lot of generic advice. Comfortable shoes! Dress for the weather! Well, duh. Assuming we’re all grownups (since children under 15 technically aren’t permitted at Market) and know when to pack an umbrella, let’s take this to the next level.
For the first time ever at HPMKT, meet the coolest, hippest, jolliest, most fun way to experience HPMKT...
Food for Foodies is always one of our most popular posts, but last Market’s review of the craft beer scene around the Triad got quite the response as well. So this time around, we are serving up some of the best places to grab a more advanced cocktail in and around High Point during Market.
Spring Market is chock full of parties and events. And our goal is to direct you to the best happenings—you know, the ones with the best food, music, and themes! It all starts at The Point on Friday, April 5.
Let's continue the journey with a tour of more Steelyard brands showing at HPMKT. This week take a virtual tour of the Tomlinson Showroom, meet the husband and wife behind Itinerant Studio, and get clued into the best events at Phillips Collection.
With a little over one month to go, it’s time for us to start thinking about where we are going to eat during Market. If you’ve been following us for awhile, you know we like to go off the beaten path, find unique dining experiences, and add a little foodie flair to our Markets…
With only 42 days until Market, there is no way we can tell you about all of the amazing Steelyard partner-brands showing in High Point if we don't start now…
With High Point Market just 56 days away, now is the time to start making plans and filling your calendar with the right places to be and the coolest Brands to visit - and of course, where to meet the industry icons that influence design. We'll keep you well informed and get you access to VIP events, along with sharing special perks just for Steelyard Market Insiders.
