Many of our customers are curious about the big Furniture Market in High Point, NC every April and October.  But, we struggle to explain this unique event.  It is a very unique event.  Hundreds of buildings, some built for market and others converted from another use, vie for your attention.  Thousands of vendors create what they hope to be compelling displays.

Frankly, the displays range from the sublime to the ridiculous.  You see exciting new designs and colors and staggeringly boring products that have been on the market forever.  Its a hoot.

Here are a few images from the Four Hands market space this year.  We’ve had some incredibly unique items on our floor from Four Hands: leather steamer trunks, polished steel desks w/leather strapping, aged looking shelves and accent furniture, unusual lamps, cool leather dining chairs, and dining tables hewed from grainy, gnarly chunks of wood.  It is a very cool line, and their product aesthetic is reflected in the design of their market space.

The definition of eclectic style.

What does all of this mean to our customers in Des Moines and Central Iowa?  Style.  Attitude.  Furniture and accessories that help you create a room that expresses your unique personality and sense of design.  These are the kinds of unique pieces that help you tell your story.
