High Point Market Favorites From Carla Benefield, Manufacturer's Representative

Are you someone who spends hours surfing Pinterest for all the latest interior design, DIY, and home décor ideas? Meet your new best friend, and our client, Carla Benefield. Carla has over 20 years of experience in the home furnishing industry and has represented manufacturers for 15 years. She is very passionate about interior design and works on both residential and commercial projects. This week she will be in North Carolina at High Point Market, which is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world and is held twice a year.

 Working with Carla to help prepare her for this trade show obviously required discussions about all the latest home furnishing trends and collections, which we have in turn, decided to share with you. Below are some of ours and Carla's favorite furniture pieces and home accessories lines, all by brands that she represents. Take a look, get some design inspiration for your own home, and feel free to contact Carla directly for more information and sales.
