An Oasis in the Design: Inspiration for Outdoor Spaces

June 8, 2021

Hammock hang at Showplace at the High Point Furniture Market in High Point, NC.

We’ve spent the last few months cooped up indoors, and if you’re anything like us, you’re tired of looking at the same four walls of your home! So even as our world slowly starts to get back to normal, outdoor spaces continue to stay popular. In fact, the whole design world is focusing on maximizing and beautifying outdoor spaces. While we appreciated our outdoor spots especially in 2020, we think they’re sticking around as the oasis – refreshing and restoring – of our homes for quite a while!  

With that in mind and social distancing still in place, High Point Market created a true oasis for Market goers at the Design Oasis! Using the Center Stage space, in between the Transportation Terminal and Showplace, this environment was designed for our Market friends to take a load off, grab some delicious eats from local food trucks, and get inspired by some of the innovative outdoor spaces sweeping the design world this year.  

And for High Point citizens – now you can get some of the best-of-the-best inspiration from industry leaders like Allen & James Interior Design, Stacey Garcia Inc., Katherine Elizabeth Designs, and Dwell by Cheryl Interiors by exploring their Design Oasis mood boards and plans. Wondering how you can revamp your outdoor space this summer to enjoy some refreshing time in the sun and the shade? Look no further than the Design Oasis inspo!
