For those of you who make the biannual trek to High Point, I encourage you to visit the Bernice Bienenstock Furniture Library located at 1009 North Main Street, just a mile or so north of the Market’s center.
Having recently undergone a complete interior renovation, it’s a unique venue where furniture and interior designers, students, market visitors and researchers can rest, find design inspiration, conduct classes and host seminars/events.
The Library contains the world’s largest research collection of over 5,000 volumes on the history and design of furniture, interiors, architecture, textiles, finishes and construction.
Plans have recently been finalized and fund-raising begun for a new project, the Pat Plaxico Gardens. The garden will unify the Library’s interior and exterior spaces, offering additional room for study, contemplation and events.
Also underway are additional $10,000 student design awards to help nurture exceptional design talent in our industry.
So please visit and use this exceptional industry resource. Call Karla Webb, Library Director at 336-883-4011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information on using the Library or to offer support by becoming a “Friend of the Library”.
