Meeting up with a fellow furniture designer and finding new vendors.

Checking out High Point Market this weekend and met up with old colleague and furniture designer Raphael Krusick in his new high point habitat. Most of the companies here I've worked with or am familiar with except 2 new stunners I've just been introduced to.

Noir (aka CFC) - great sculptural and iconic pieces (you know I love designing that stuff!!) Everything they have is fabulous including case goods, upholstery, lighting and decorative accessories.
Kim Salmela - fab upholstery in great prints (I've seen their chair before but this was the 1st time I met her and saw the full line).

Ironically they are both Cali. How is it that I know hundreds of factories in many countries but have never heard of these 2 LA stunners? San Francisco and LA unite!

Regardless these 2 companies are ones to watch - and buy from:)
