DESIGNER Q&A: TAKE FIVE
We’ve got a crush on CORTNEY BISHOP, the founder and principal creative force behind Cortney Bishop Design. Cortney’s design vision runs the gamut of style and structure, balancing creativity, comfort, and functionality with a dose of modern flair. Her imprimatur is simple and distcintive: Cortney and team create spaces that breathe life into the phrase “welcome home.” Quite fun to take five with Cortney.
#1 THINK OF YOUR THREE FAVORITE HIGH POINT SHOWROOMS. WHAT DO THEY SHARE IN COMMON?
#2 WE LOVE THE DIGITAL WORLD. WE LOVE PRINT MAGAZINES. WE ARE NOW ALL EXPERT ZOOMERS. THAT SAID, TELL US WHAT A GREAT SHOWROOM EXPERIENCE PROVIDES YOU AS A DESIGN PRO.
“There’s just no substitute for the bricks-and-mortar shopping experience….all your senses are engaged. We are all the more creative and efficient when engaged in these showrooms.” CB
#3 HAVE YOU ESTABLISHED ANY HP MARKET TRADITIONS?
“I’m always anxious to see our family at Verellen, especially in the evenings after a long day for rosé and hang time. Tom, Sabine and the crew are some of the most lovely people we’ve ever met.” CB
#4 BRIEFLY RECOUNT A FAVORITE “ONLY IN HIGH POINT” MOMENT FROM MARKETS PAST?
“Oh, I can’t tell you that. What happens in High Point … well, you know the rest.” CB
#5 THEY SAY EVERYONE HAS A SUPER POWER. WHAT’S YOURS?
“Determination.” CB (Editor’s note: quite right, but let’s add the adjective unrelenting!)
