Kids Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, December 6, 2013
HIGH POINT, N.C. - Michelle Wiebe was once again selected as the High Point Market's top Style Spotter following the show in October.
She received the most votes through "likes" and re-pins on her Pinterest board of products and trends from the fall High Point Market. Wiebe will be invited back to High Point for the April 5-10 market as the winner of the fall 2013 contest.
A two-time winner, Wiebe will not compete in 2014. Her website is www.interiorsbystudiom.com, and her Twitter handle is @StudioM_.
Shay Geyer, who finished just behind Wiebe, will lead the team of spring market Style Spotters. Geyer's website is www.ibbdesign.com, and her Twitter handle is @designerShay.
"Our congratulations go out to both Michelle for her tenacity and design acumen and also to Shay who was such a close second," said Tom Conley, president and ceo of the High Point Market Authority.
The Style Spotters program, launched during the October 2011 market, features home fashion trendsetters who showcase their favorite products and top trends from market exhibitors on Pinterest. The fall 2013 Style Spotters Rewind! members were compiled from the past roster of talent, and they roamed the October market looking for top products and trends. When they selected product, they presented exhibitors with signs that highlighted the Style Spotter's name with a QR code and URL for the Market Pinterest board. Market attendees also participated by voting on the pinboards and products.
The product that received the most votes this fall on any of the Style Spotters' boards was the BRABBU Sequoia cocktail table of oak and cast brass, found at Suites at Market Square (M-7055), by Wiebe.
The full team of Style Spotters in October included Gretchen Aubuchon, Fashion + Décor (@ fashiondecor); Tobi Fairley, Tobi Fairley Interior Design (@tobifairley); Lisa Ferguson, Decor Mentor (@DecorMentor); Janel Laban, Apartment Therapy (@ AptTherapy); Lisa Mende, Lisa Mende Design (@LisaMendeDesign); Stacy Naquin, Stacy Naquin Interiors (@StacyNaquin); and Traci Zeller, Traci Zeller Designs (@tracizeller).
