TV series gives High Point Market a starring role
The High Point Market and several home furnishings exhibitors play a starring role in the second season of EarthxTV’s sustainability design show “Chez Laurence,” recently released for streaming on the EarthxTV app, Apple TV, Google TV, Roku and Amazon Fire.
In the eight-episode season, Laurence Carr spotlights companies and organizations in the home furnishings and related sectors that are committed to improving their environmental impact and creating a more sustainable future, according to a news release.
For the second season’s premiere episode, Carr was filmed on-site at last year’s October market where she participated in an immersive activation called “Sustainability Stories at Center Stage,” organized by the High Point Market Authority. Drawing on her expertise in circularity as a New York-based interior designer, Carr staged one of three vignettes showcasing innovations in sustainable furnishings from Currey & Company and Phillips Collection, along with paint from Farrow & Ball and materials like Repreve, which is made from 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic.
Current High Point Market exhibitors featured or appearing in the “Creating Things That Last” episode include Aloka Home, Cisco Home, Copeland, Crypton, etúHOME, Libeco, Moore & Giles, Rowe Furniture and the industry association Sustainable Furnishings Council.
“Laurence Carr’s EarthxTV series makes a powerful case for sustainable interior design and how product selection can add up to positive change,” says Ashley Grigg, HPMA director of marketing and communications. “We’re excited that High Point Market and many of our leading exhibitors in sustainable home furnishings are recognized in the show.”
The roles of High Point Market, its exhibitors and SFC founding member Susan Inglis extend into future episodes, which are scheduled for release on EarthxTV each Saturday at 12:30 p.m. (EDT) and then available on-demand, throughout the new season.
“I was thrilled to include High Point Market in ‘Chez Laurence’,” says Carr, who is creator, executive producer and host of the show. “It’s a trusted and valued resource for interior designers seeking out sustainable products, new materials, inspiration and education.”
