This Spring, Junior League of High Point brought a designer showhouse to High Point. They challenged 22 designers to create spaces within the historic Randall B. Terry Estate that reflect High Point, North Carolina as the heart of the world’s home furnishings industry. This talented group transformed the circa-1912 Tudor Revival into a modern, livable home. Get inspired and shop the lighting used throughout this unique showhouse!
foyer: traci zeller
Traci’s lavender and navy palette was inspired by the Jane Booth artwork featured in her charming entry to the estate. The cool hues are accented by our Vivian Chandelier, hand-rubbed antique brass Boston Functional Library Wall Light and a Greek key motif mirror in a similar finish.
kitchen: lisa mende
Lisa Mende looked to the Art Deco period when designing the kitchen, mudroom and breakfast room. Rich brass hardware and our Pimlico Double Swing Arm Wall Lamps pop against bold, geometric patterns covering the ceiling and window treatments.
breakfast room: lisa mende
Lisa continued her graphic black and white patterns in the breakfast room, also incorporating bright cobalt and chartreuse textiles and accessories. To achieve a more deco-lavish look, Lisa fashioned our Kate Table Lamps with black silk shades.
mudroom: lisa mende
Custom black-and-white-spotted wallpaper covers the walls of the mudroom just off the kitchen leading to the back entrance of the house. Black paint and brass hardware echo Lisa’s design vision for the kitchen and breakfast room. She chose a single hand-rubbed antique brass and bronze Hicks Pendant to light the space.
bar: christine barbour
Christine’s goal for the tiny bar adjacent to the family room was to remind people how easy it is to add a little glamour to their own lives. She achieved the luxurious look with marble basket weave floors, elegant quartz-topped counters and gold accents throughout, including our gilded Hampton Pendant and McClain Picture Light.
family room: alan ferguson & john paulin
Alan Ferguson’s family room celebrates the style of Thayer Coggin, the midcentury modern trendsetter who gave Alan his first job in the design industry. He and partner John Paulin mixed contemporary and vintage pieces to create a comfortable yet sophisticated living area. The unique shape of our Markos Hanging Shade adds a feminine touch.
powder room: margaret fisher
Margaret Fisher describes her style as “Southern design with a contemporary twist.” She used vibrant Christian Lacroix for Designers Guild wallpaper, magenta accents and our white-beaded Jacqueline Chandelier to make a big impact with the jewel box-sized room. Our delicate Dauphine Sconces light the bamboo-framed mirror.
upper hall: jennifer hutton & mickey sharpe
Jennifer and Mickey selected an earthy color palette for their upper hallway, which features a bookshelf complete with library ladder. The handsome Flemish Linear Pendant lights the collection of original art and pottery displayed within.
artist’s retreat: leslie moore
Leslie Moore envisioned this room as a creative sanctuary for the artist of the home – a place to get away, paint, read and relax. She layers the various furniture textures against the golden grass cloth-covered walls. A pair of our oversized Tamaso Table Lamps flank the small bar area.
daughter’s bedroom: cathy austin
Cathy Austin is best known for her colorful style and playful approach to design. The character she invented for the girl’s bedroom is an artistic young woman with undeniably Southern roots. A gilded Mill Ceiling Light hangs above the bed, which features monogrammed pillow shams and a Moroccan-inspired headboard. A pair of Bristol Table Lamps light the artful accessories atop her desk.
dressing room: kara cox
Kara Cox designed this dressing area for a chic, bohemian woman who uses the room not only as a glamorous stage for dressing but also as a gallery for her collected objects and art curated during her travels. Among her personal treasures is our Burt Table Lamp in black marble.
master bedroom: libby langdon
Libby Langdon made the black walls of her master bedroom look warm by layering shades of cream and luxurious fabrics. The large room begged for a sitting area where Libby incorporated alabaster Chubby Column Table Lamps and a parchment-colored leather Tall Dixon Table Lamp. She mixes metals with ease throughout the room, placing a polished-nickel Montgomery Table Lamp on a gilded accent table.
carriage house lounge: aida saul
Aida Saul dramatically transformed the once dark, rustic rec room of the carriage house into an edgy, urban style sitting room with exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings. Clean-lined furniture contrasts with bold, patterned rugs and eclectic accessories, all sure to be conversation-starters. To continue the urbane look with lighting, Aida chose a pair of Industrial-chic Studio Floor Lamps.
upstairs art haven: holly hollingsworth phillips
Layers of color, textiles and art reflect wanderlust and bohemian glamour in Holly Hollingsworth Phillips’ carriage house space. A hand-rubbed antique brass Soleil Pendant shines above the sitting area and saturated colors fill the white walls.
nature-inspire loft: laura covington
Last but not least, Laura Covington selected a pair of French Library Single Wall Lamps to light the daybed in this cozy room on the second floor of the carriage house.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with this extraordinary group of designers and support the Junior League’s mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve their community!
