Bunny Williams Home returns to High Point Market after 5 years
April 26, 2017,
HIGH POINT — It’s been five years since Bunny Williams showed at High Point Market, but the timing was right to return, according to company officials.
The Bunny Williams Home collection launched here with 10 new pieces on display, and the full collection available for purchase, including a lighting debut collection with Currey & Co.
“Our last showing in High Point was April 2012, and since then, we’ve opened a flagship store in New York. Our distribution has grown and is growing,” Potter added, “and we felt like it was a good time to return to market.”
Key items in the introductions group include Regency-style benches available COM, a Napoleon-style chair, a Knole-style sofa, a dining table with spiral legs, a black bookcase with brass detailing, a 60-by-60-inch panel and a gold gilt mirror. Prices range from $1,500 to more than $10,000, and ship time is six weeks, 12 weeks for made-to-order beds.
“We warehouse in North Carolina and stock frames,” Potter said. “For most new intros, we are looking at a June delivery.”
Williams opened her interior design company, Bunny Williams Inc., in 1988 after 22 years with the Parish-Hadley Associates decorating firm. For 25 years, Williams co-owned Treillage Ltd., a garden furniture shop in New York, with antiques dealer John Rosselli.
The Bunny Williams Home collection launched at the International Home Furnishings Center, space IH-102.
Potter said the introductory launch showcases Williams’ modernized traditional designs while underscoring the company’s philosophy.
“Our mission is to offer education and design through product development,” Potter said. “Many of the pieces in the collection were inspired by pieces Bunny has owned or has seen on her travels. We’re very excited to be back in High Point and bring her designs to buyers and designers.”
