It is almost time again for High Point Furniture Market. If you are planning on being in High Point for market, you will have to stop by the Bienenstock Furniture Library (@bienenstockfurniturelibrary). Located on 1009 N. Main St. in High Point, North Carolina, the library is the largest furniture specialty library. They house over 5,000 furniture and design books. Not only does the library have books published in 1543, but they also have rare drawings and furniture details. If you are a designer, student, architect, or just interested in design you should really check it out!
I was lucky enough to sit down and do an interview about what I love about the Bienenstock Furniture Library and what it adds to the design community. I will be sharing all the fun details on my social media this week and I can’t wait for you to see what I had to say. Here’s a little taste of the soundbites from my video interview.
“The Library is especially valuable for someone who is designing home products or trying to create unique designs that require historical inspiration. Having the Furniture Library here in High Point, where designers can completely research different periods, designs and styles – that’s unheard of and I don’t know another place like it. What’s great about utilizing the many books here at the Bienenstock Furniture Library, is that we can see a design through an author’s eyes and get their point of view, in a detailed and useful way. I’m even inspired by books’ bindings and the patterns chosen to set the color tone for a book. It’s also about the pages and the content, but the books themselves are often just as beautiful.”
The #furniturelibrary is open daily for wine and cheese during market and rare #designbooks tours from 2 to 4pm, during #HPMKT! Learn more HERE!
