Want to add a little soul to your newly designed space? Then the place to source is coming up this spring right here in the furniture capital of the world, North Carolina's High Point Furniture Market - And the elements to add are one-of-a-kind, 20th century antiques. From sustainable casegoods, unique seating and every table type you could possibly image to exceptional fine art, sculptures, rare rugs, and iconic lighting -- it's all here, in the neighborhoods at High Point Market.
The antiques category has been growing steadily within the furniture and design industry, as well as here at HPMKT - just ask Karen Luisana and Amanda Kinney, the founders who launched the Antiques & Design Center in the fall of 2010.
From that one source, two other antique authorities have risen within the "Russell/Green" neighborhood, adjacent to Market Square & Elm Neighborhood: 214 Vintage Modern, who relocated and expanded to their new space 314 W Russell Ave in fall 2018, along with opening just last spring, Chelsea on Green, who gave the neighborhood a boost transforming a 20,000 square-foot vacant building & lot (previously Antiques & Interiors in 2015) at 515 West Green Dr., High Point, NC.
Sourcing these gems comes with the added bonus of doors opening two days before market actually kicks off, which means you can hunt for treasures before the crowds arrive on Saturday - but run, don't walk to get the best of the best early!
In addition to no lead times to wait on manufacturing, most vendors are cash & carry (which is great for locals) but designers can also arrange white-glove shipping for their cherished finds. Personally, this is one of the visual delights I get the most excited to experience and source during HPMKT!!
During your trip to HPMKT, be sure to add these neighborhood spots to your agenda. Remember to wear comfortable shoes and pack an umbrella as these three locations are separate, but still nearby to one another within adjacent neighborhoods - and on a lovely spring day (like today!!) it's an excellent chance to get outdoors for a bit and enjoy some sunshine in between showroom tours...
CHELSEA on GREEN
New kid on the block, Chelsea on Green, located at 515 West Green Drive, not only carries 30 vendors representing antique and vintage home furnishings, but they also carry larger pieces of art and architecture... with the added bonus of a cafe inside their gallery plus an outdoor garden area to host your special venue.

ANTIQUE & DESIGN CENTER
The one who started it all - not quite as far back as the first furniture market in 1909, but still 13 years strong now - the Antique & Design Center, located at 316 W Commerce Ave, continues to thrive as an invaluable resource as more designers have come to appreciate the long-lasting quality and sustainability the antiques category has to offer.
This must attend destination for designers is also host several educational seminars, bubbly & book signings, vintage vaults from Chairish, plus tours & events hosted by the Antiques Diva herself, Toma Clark Haines. Be sure to visit the Anitque & Design Center website to get a listing of scheduled events planned for this market.
