16 Favorite Chairs out of High Point Market

After spending last week shopping the 10 million square feet of showrooms at the Fall 2011 High Point Furniture Market, the soles of my sneakers are smoking! Here are my personal picks for preferred seats in the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. All these are either available through your interior designer, or you can check the manufacturers’ websites for retailers near you.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

I discovered this beauty in the Vanguard showroom and believed it was one of the very elegant chairs at the whole show. The shape is just to-die-for and it’s super comfortable. The large scale pattern in chocolate, amethyst and yellow is a show-stopper!

I loved the Cline high-backed seat with this bold yellow, gray and white stripe cloth revealed at Hickory Chair. A very new look on a classic style.

Large scale patterns were evident in all of the showrooms. This citron and lotion pattern was a real standout. Additionally from Hickory Chair.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Bolier is one of my favourite furniture lines. Their graceful, pieces are fantastic for clean-lined, modern spaces. Many of the pieces are quite minimal, but never boring, as you can see in the detail about this seat back.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Sometimes these sleek, swooping lines look great, but aren’t comfortable. I definitely was amazed by how wonderfully inviting and comfortable this modern cushioned seat was American Leather.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Very Star Trek, do not you believe? I would fight Captain Kirk for it, though. Comfortable and it swivels too! From Star International.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

This laser-cut, natural leather chair has enough give. Best for a super modern area. From Modloft.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

I lean toward modern pieces so am normally not into wingbacks, but I loved this updated one at American Leather. The lines, color, and large-scale pattern all work to get a more transitional or modern space.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Bernhardt had another great looking wingback. The soft gray upholstery, clean lines and absence of nail heads convert this classic into a transitional piece.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

American Leather was one of my preferred showrooms. This little T-back seat fit me just perfect. The back is at just the perfect height for resting your arms.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Tara Shaw Maison had the most special dining seat. I loved the subdued scenery of ancient ruins to the upholstery and the depth of the little silver handle on the cover of the back.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

This all-wood dining seat from Copeland has such a beautiful shape; it appears like it might just take flight. It works nicely with either mid-century contemporary or modern spaces. For a non-upholstered seat it was amazingly comfortable.

The two-color fabric program with nail heads and timber cap on top are breathtaking details about these dining chairs from Vanguard.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

This seat from Taylor King is a beauty for traditional design, but the yellowish and gray upholstery are completely current.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

Doryas luxury furniture line featured accent fabrics to give classic lines a shot of design.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR

I just believe this seat is exceptional. Love the suede leather wrap around back with contrasting seat. Just plain cool! From Vanguard.
