Endless possibilities. Expert guidance.

It’s the most magnificent High Point shopping tour

Tailored to you by an Allen and James designer

We start by listening to you. Once we understand your style, lifestyle, and needs, we create your tour by selecting from our palette of more than 400 of the world’s finest furniture makers, artisans, and artists. It’s a totally personalized experience of the center of the home furnishings world, our home, High Point, North Carolina.

Your style, brought to life

Our knowledge is your advantage

While you’re here, we don’t just take you through showrooms and show you furnishings, we introduce you to the people who craft them. Fully informed of each maker’s capabilities and limitations, expertly guided through your choices, you know you’re making the right decisions.

Your style, brought to life

Experience every piece before you choose

You can be sure every sofa, sectional, bench, and chair feels and sits just right, because you’ll sit in every one, in the factory showroom, before you make any selections. In just a couple of days, you will know exactly which makers can build the furnishings you’ll want to keep for years.

Your style, brought to life

See how it’s made

While you’re here, we’ll take you behind the scenes, if you like. You can see how each maker builds each piece, and how they build longevity and quality in. You can see your artisans at work, visit artists in their studios, and get the unique story behind every item you choose.
