The High Point Market Authority has officially selected its 2020 Style Spotters team.
The Style Spotters program launched in 2011 at the Fall High Point Market, where HPMA gathered home fashion trendsetters and asked them to identify favorite products and top exhibitor trends using Pinterest. The HPMA assembled the 2020 team by using a combination of self-identified and well-known candidates, the organization noted, reviewed by a vetting and selection committee that sought a diverse and geographically balanced group.
The 2020 Style Spotters team consists of:
- Rachel Cannon, Rachel Cannon Limited Interiors
- Nancy Fire, Design Works International
- Joanna Hawley-McBride, Jojotastic, LLC
- Don Ricardo Massenburg, Design Inkredible LLC
- Rachel Moriarty, Rachel Moriarty Interiors
- Ivonne Ronderos, DKOR Interiors
- Victoria Sanchez, Victoria At Home
- Keita Turner, Keita Turner Design
The Style Spotters will tour the High Point Market starting with this spring’s show, April 25 to 29, throwing a spotlight on their favorite products and pointing out top trends. They post their picks to High Point Market Pinterest boards and contribute to the two Style Reports that the HPMA produces. They also share product predictions in advance of the spring and fall markets via various digital and social channels.
Two mentors, dubbed Style Spotters Advisors, provide guidance to the team, moderate panel discussions during Style Spotters Live! Breakfast events, and write the introduction for each Style Report. In 2020, Style Spotters alumni Shay Geyer of IBB Design Fine Furnishings and Gary Inman of Baskervill repeat as Style Spotters Advisers for a second year.
“We are excited about what this diverse team will bring to High Point Market with their individual styles, social media followings and their ability to spot trends affecting the home furnishings industry,” said Tom Conley, HPMA president and CEO. “Style Spotters is one of our premier programs, adding great value for our buyers, media attendees and exhibitors. The team’s insights and input is a widely-used resource for both our attendees and the industry as a whole.”
