Kona Chair at the High Point Market

Today is the first day of the High Point Market in North Carolina where over 2,000 exhibitors will present some of the newest design trends in the furniture industry. It is also where the winner of Project UDesign – the first crowd-sourced eco-friendly wing chair – will be announced at the Century Furniture showroom. Three designs are in the running and I have already announced that my favorite is the Kona Chair designed by SCAD student Emily Carpenter. There is still time to cast your vote on the BiOH facebook page up until
the contest closes on October 19th.

the final voting process.

Even though I will not be able to attend the
6-day long event at High Point, I will be in the
showroom “virtually
by means of a really cool
video that features the three finalists along with
the blog posts created to spread the word
“that sustainable design is beautiful design.

So in honor of the Kona making it into this final round, I have chosen some pieces from the Century Furniture line that have the same laid-back vibe as the original room that I designed for Alluminare. I can definitely see the Kona being featured in one of these gorgeous room settings for Century or paired with some
of their nature inspired accent pieces.

Vote now for The Kona Chair
by Emily Carpenter

“What I like best about the
design of the Kona chair
that it can easily fit in with
today’s modern take
on the
traditional. It looks both
and solid,
while still being fun.

Tune in to twitter on Monday, October 18th
starting at 5:00pm EST for a tweet-up with
the Project UDesign finalists and the press!
