Highlight’s from Home Meridian at High Point

Last week I had the pleasure of attending High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina for the release of spring 2012 collections.  It was my first time to Market and let’s just say that I was a little overwhelmed by the magnitude of the event.
My trip was sponsored by Home Meridian and their Baby Creations and Pulaski brands.  Home Meridian ranks among the top five case goods suppliers to US retail, so there was tons to see! The showrooms are all located at 220 Elm Street – a picture of their newly renovated lobby was taken from my iPhone (below).

My first stop was the Baby Creation showroom. Not typically shown at Market, this collection of beautiful, high quality nursery furniture ranges from class to modern styles. While touring, I was able to talk to the designer of the collection (who is also a mom) and she went into detail about how each piece is designed to grow with your child and provide as much functionality as possible.

The sweet and elegant Angelina Collection was being introduced at Market. The six-legged crib is really stunning. This convertible crib is designed to grow with your little one and be used for many years. It converts to a toddler bed {guard rail is included with the crib}, daybed and then can be converted into a full bed with optional rails.
black_dresser_bookcase_hutch_combo_child
Black in a nursery can be so stunning. I think it works for both boys and girls too. I loved Baby Creation’s traditional combo dresser hutch in antique black
traditional_conversion_crib_bed_baby
In a rich chestnut finish, I love the lines of this convertible sleigh crib. The bun feet can be removed to lower the height of the crib to suit the needs of the parents. It’s part of Baby Creations’ Cape Cod Collection which also features a changing table (below) that can be used as a media center down the road.

girls_spindle_crib_white
The Venezia Collection isn’t new, but I thought this beautiful, traditional European style crib was worth sharing with you.

Next I was off to tour Home Meridian’s Pulaski division. Pulaski was founded in 1955 and is known for its craftsmanship and affordable pricing. They are also an industry leader in curio cabinets. One of Pulaski’s collections, Accentrics offers beautiful, multi-functional casegoods. The chest / desk combo shown above was brilliant don’t you think? I can see it being used in so many different spaces.

This modern cabinet opens up and folds out into a full bar! I love how much space it saves when it is all buttoned up.

tall_mirrored_cabinet
I loved the mirror detail on this tall antiqued cabinet and think it would work beautifully in a bedroom, living room or dining room.
The Home Meridian brands are sold through retailers. Follow the links to find a dealer in your area for Baby Creations and Pulaski.
Thank you Home Meridian for your generous hospitality!
