We can't wait for Fall High Point Market

The High Point Market in North Carolina features an extensive selection of exhibitors spanning every category, style, and price point. The five-day event attracts tens of thousands of visitors from more than 100 countries twice each year, and the market is the driving force of the home furnishings industry.

Starting on Friday, October 15, with a champagne social, and coming to a close on Tuesday, October 19, with a farewell cocktail hour, the event offers opportunities for learning, networking, and insight that designers desire to continue a successful business in design. 

Meet the team who designed Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's new home.

Commune Design
Roman Alonso and Steven Johanknecht are founders of the Los Angeles-based design studio Commune Design, which specializes in architecture as well as interior, graphic, and product design. At the core of the studio's design philosophy is the notion of collective work and collaborations with artists, artisans, and craftspeople around the globe. Alonso was born in Caracas, emigrated to Miami as a teen, and worked in art publishing. Johanknecht became Vice President of Display and Store Design for Barneys New York. Together, they founded Commune Design in 2004. Their style captures the effortless, cool lifestyle of Southern California.
