NEW HIGH POINT SHOWROOM @ 506 N Wrenn

NEW HIGH POINT SHOWROOM @ 506 N Wrenn

My goal has always been to be as close to the heart of High Point but at a cost that "worked for me". This past year that became my reality.   Having an storefront window wasn't part of the "goal" but as it would be I struck gold and now I have such at 506 N Wrenn,....corner of  N Wrenn and  E Westwood to be exact...sharing space with Added Oomph!. Although we have been open for appointments for the past two months, Fall 2018 Market  will be our first High Point Furniture Market in the new space.  Will have photos to...

Adding Warmth To A Room vis a vis a Carpet...

ZAAR has been a regular participant at the To The Trade only show, in High Point NC since 2004, as many of you know. With the help of my designer angels my showroom always looks great. It is an inviting and colorful space, beautifully showcasing how the various collections I represent marry. Well, this past Market we had the icing on the cake, when New River Artisans came to show with us. Talk about adding a punch to our space.

The Warmth of a Chinese Altar Table....

The Warmth of a Chinese Altar Table....

...cannot be denied. The wood. It tells a story. The structure, tells a story. Whether a simple "wine table" or a table with carved spandrels and "everted ends"....the latter to serve the purpose of keeping rolled out scrolls from falling off the ends. The Chinese craftsman have a gift in preserving the history of these treasures, by accenting the patina with a hand rubbed wax finish, which serves each piece so well. Hope you enjoy these works of art as I do....AND should one of these one of a kind pieces be of interest to you, do note that the...

Chinese Antiques....my Roots in Online Selling

 Coming on 17 years ago when I made my first online sale of a traditional red wedding cabinet. Already and only? 8 years in Asia gave me a love for the genre. Upon our 1999 move to the states... presenting it to my customers and making such available for them to bring into their homes became my passion. After all these years I still love the "feeling" that is emitted by a piece of furniture that has had a life (or more) before it entered my world....where it rests until it reaches its final home. I love how inserting a...
