“In every culture decorative heirlooms define a Nation in much the same way as it’s music, poets and writers do.”-Christopher Guy
If you don’t already know who Christopher Guy is, I mean seriously where have you been? I’ve always admired the chic and sophisticated furniture designs that are Christopher Guy. Arriving at High Point Saturday morning all anyone was talking about was the new showroom to be opened that evening. Stumbling upon the showroom while making our first round through High Point, I can honestly say the jaws of both my team and myself dropped. The exterior of the building alone was enough to stop us in our tracks. We knew we would be attending the grand opening that evening there was no question.
Guy was born in Britain and raised in France, with a background like that I can’t even imagine the incredible fine furnishings this man will continue to offer long after he’s gone. Guy originally entered the furnishing world with a long line of decorative mirrors. We will forever be grateful that he transitioned into creating upholstery, dining tables, headboards and countless other chic furnishings. His patented leg design “Chris-X” is an easily recognizable element to many of his furniture pieces.He says “Elegance, sophistication and grace have always transcended cultural heirlooms; my objective has been to transfer this into my own distinct decorative furnishing style.”
Please believe me when I say he does just that in each and every piece he has ever released. During High Point along with his impeccable showroom 80 new pieces from his “Mademoiselle” collection made their debut to the design world. The Mademoiselle collection has over 700 designs and is CG’s take on what CoCo Chanel’s home would be decorated like today. The collection is a where elegance meets edge and continues to daze designers all over the world.
