Gallery Furniture customer Lori Murphy shares with everyone her collection likes over at Jonathan Louis, a line she became more familiar with on a late Friday afternoon visit to their showroom in beautiful High Point, North Carolina during the annual High Point Furniture Market (no officially in its 100th year).
"The first thing I noticed, Mack, was the gorgeous use of blue, and I mean that in every shade and color of blue. Blue, for lack of a better word, is the hip thing this market, and I let Chris and Gil know that it seemed almost every nice piece that I viewed had some hint of blue in it - and I thought it would be nice for Gallery Furniture customers to know what the next trend is - and I wanted to show Houston what they could expect to see in terms of palettes and color schemes that will really start hitting the scene soon."
"I think Gallery Furniture customers will like what many manufacturers seem to have done this particular season is to bring the use of shades of blue and incorporate that with such a wide range of other colors that, at first glance, we might not think of. Just look how the cute kidney pillows above sort of bring it all together."
"Again, the kidney pillows bring this look together for this set, I also love the fact that this set did not show a loveseat, chair, ottoman, etc. in the kid of traditional sense - I love this sofa and two chairs and cocktail ottoman combination. Very light looking in terms of size, and as many of my fellow inner-loop Gallery Furniture Houstonians know, you are very tight on space inside the 610 Loop. A set like this gives you lots of ways to move the seating around and not consuming a massive amount of floor space. Heck, kill the cocktail ottoman and replace it with something a bit smaller, and you have a real space saver with plenty of comfy seating. "
Lori Murphy is happy to be a part of the Gallery Furniture High Point team, and she is enjoying her experience as a buyer, adding "you definitely don't like everything you see at High Point market, it can really overwhelm you - but what I like, I know I like an I do not dawdle. Like it, know why I like it, and I move on - go, go, go!"
That is one thing Gallery Furniture loves, decisiveness. Gallery Furniture is lucky to have great customers like Lori Murphy and the rest of the customers yurned buyers on the High Point Market trip.
