Fall 2013 High Point Market – Mad for Modern

Planum LR1

This living room in has modern sofas that contrast the classic architectural fretwork.

Accentuated by the use of light and dark colors, the furnishings seem somewhat understated compared to the commanding views. The sofa designer, Kelvin Giormani, manages the daily operations of his family’s manufacturing business in Asia. I enjoyed reminiscing with him in High Point.

The modern desk below reminds me of classic Coco Chanel with its captivating curves, wonderful warm wood, and golden metal. The stunning oversized dining table with its X shaped legs was more intriguing in person than in the photograph. I’m not usually a fan of modern furnishings but these fantastic new pieces made me want to redecorate! That’s why “Best in Show” at the Fall 2013 High Point Furniture Market goes to the Planum showroom with its modern sofa, desk, and dining table pictured here.
