High Point Market Spring 2018

This Spring #hpmkt was one for the books! Century debuted in their new showroom at 200 Steele all while launching two, new casegood collections and an outdoor collection.

Located on the second floor of 200 Steele, our new showroom instantly felt like home. (maybe because we are now in the same building as Highland House and Hancock & Moore). This market we called the showroom our Blank Canvas because it was in fact, a blank canvas. With a more open floor plan and brand new product, our team was given the liberty to start fresh and paint the town red! (not literally, but we did use some Benjamin Moore Century paint colors on our walls).




Exciting and a little nerve wrecking (we did not have furniture in the space two weeks before opening day), but our team made it happen and boy, did we put on a show.


Our annual market party was named "Blank Canvas Party", where new friends and old friends helped us celebrate our new home. We had a jazz band, a local artist come in and show off her talent, food served on paint pallets, and a photographer capture the evening. What a night we had!







On Monday evening, we hosted a flower arranging demonstration with Thomas O'Brien. We watched him arrange beautiful flowers from New York and listen to him talk about different types of flowers while sitting in his garden room. Did you know that before you purchase your flowers from a florist, they go through a flower auction?



And in the blink of an eye, #hpmkt was over. We want to thank everyone that played a special part in making our grand opening successful.

What do we have in store for next market? Well, you will just have to wait and see.

Pantone Color of the Year - Ultra Violet

Ultra Violet is a " dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade" that "communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future".
 
There has been belief that the color has a mystical and spiritual quality to it. The use of this color in a room energizes the space and brings together those gathering in the room, which inspires connection.
 
Just like Ultra Violet, our Windsor Smith collection is beautiful, but emphasizes on functionality in the home!

A Year in Review

As we say goodbye to 2017, we find ourselves reflecting on this past year and those who have supported us along the way. It has been quite a year; we said goodbye to our HP showroom in Historic Market Square, launched a collection with designer Windsor Smith, moved to a temporary showroom as we wait for the completion of our new showroom at 200 Steele, launched an outdoor collection with Thomas O'Brien, won a Pinnacle Award & we celebrated 70 years in business.


We called this showroom home for 40 years!

Baby, it's Cold Outside

It's that time of year again -- It's getting colder outside and all you want to do is light your Christmas candle, turn on the TV, and watch a Lifetime movie while cozied up on your sofa.  We understand.  We get it. That's why we've pulled together some of our best snuggly sofa fabric combinations to tempt you. What better material to snuggle into than a furry, soft shearling....faux of course!

So, turn on that fireplace, make yourself a hot cup of coco (Go ahead an add the mini marshmellows too. We won't tell!), and spend the afternoon perusing some of our favorite lounging seats for those cold, winter days.

This years DC Design House was held in Potomac, MD, where lovers of interior design absconded into a 27,000 square foot masterpiece. Twenty three designers and boutiques transformed this D.C. area home in efforts to raise funds for the Children's National Health System.
 
Our Century Showroom in DC loaned pieces to three designers to help make the rooms look magical.

The Study Royale was designed by Lorna Gross, and it was bold and beautiful. The Eloise Accent Table (SF5720) and Palermo Cocktail Table (SF5609) from our Grand Tour collection sparkled against the pops of blue in this room. Our Rhodes Sofa (AE-22-1069) from our Thomas O'Brien collection and Hope Hall Chairs (719-591), Kirov Bar (I39-636) and our Juliet Cigarette Table (I39-625) looked beautiful too!
 
 
In love with this home? Well, you're in luck! It's on the market for a mere $10.28 million dollars.
