About us

A community of design

High Point x Design was born around a weathered teak table in March of 2020 when a group of friends, neighbors and industry pros started Saturday morning meet-ups. Our shared goal – then and now – is reimagining High Point as a year-round hub of design and creativity.

Today, HPxD is a cadre of about fifty branded showrooms with two shopping pathways. Some HPxD members are open to the trade only. Other flagship showrooms welcome trade partners, as well as fans of designs and the citizenry of High Point. Hours vary too. Many HPxD members are open daily; all are open by appointment. And, most showrooms open during special events.

The company we keep

While varying wildly on matters of style and expression, HPxD flagships are design-oriented and fashion-forward, each with a distinctive personality. For many, High Point is home or a significant operational home base. Flagship guidelines follow. Kindred spirits are encouraged to email now for more information.

Creators welcome

Members must be brands that design and source/manufacture proprietary and original home décor items.

The price is right

Membership requires absolute commitment to honoring trade pricing, available exclusively to your approved design and retail accounts only.

Tag, you're it

To uphold trade pricing integrity, HPxD flagships open to all must tag at retail price. Non-trade shoppers may enjoy a modest in-store incentive at the brand's discretion.

It's showtime

Members are committed to offering shoppers an exceptional experience: products, people, service, and showroom vibe designed to inspire.

Stronger together

HPxD membership is all-in, fully participating in group marketing and reciprocating with inclusion in your messaging.

Finances

Annual membership dues are required to support the growth of our platform and communications program. Plus, contributions welcome!

Design Tourism
