Bobby Berk and Kelli Ellis to give Sunday keynote at High Point Market

HIGH POINT — The High Point Market Authority has added Bobby Berk, interior designer, Emmy-nominated host of “Queer Eye” and author, as its Sunday keynote speaker for the upcoming October High Point Market.

Moderated by the celebrity interior designer and design psychology expert Kelli Ellis, Berk’s presentation — set for 3-4 p.m., Oct. 15, in the High Point Theatre — will highlight his new book “Right at Home” and the intersection of design and mental health.

Berk will share why he chose to write a book (to be released Sept. 12) dedicated to how good design is good for the mind, the connection between living spaces and self care, and how to use design to better our lives.

In addition, 400 complimentary signed copies of Berk’s hardcover book will be available for Sunday keynote event guests on a first-come, first-served basis.
