“Cobalt and Chinoiserie”. That’s what Mark kept tagging all of his instagram pictures with this year just before unveiling his collection of furniture with Henredon at High Point. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the reveal, and even posted about the teasing he was doing here.
This was the first teaser that Mark posted. Two of his Carlyle chairs, upholstered in rich cobalt velvet against cobalt blue walls.
Then this. Two of his Pacific Heights sofa’s making one long banquette against a cobalt wall. I knew that Mark would make this beautiful, but I wasn’t sure how.
Then the Chinoiserie started to come in, with the Queens Road Coromandel Screen.
Mark worked with artist Kayce Hughes for the art in the room. And before you knew it – we had peeks at spaces that were beginning to look a lot more finished:
Mark shared all of these pictures prior to High Point opening up today, and I’m sure there will be a TON of photos on instagram in the coming hours of his spaces, as there were last year. In fact, here are a few:
Great inspiration for those of us who can’t make it down to North Carolina. You can find many of those pictures by searching #markdsikes or #henredon, and the tags for high point market: #hptmkt and #hpmkt2017. You can also check out all of the photos that were taken at people who were checked in to High Point Market here and here and here .
You can also glean loads of inspiration from Mark’s book, Beautiful. I have a signed copy from Mark and I’ve purchased 6 copies for friends already. Take a look and grab your copy here:
