Furniture World News


During Fall High Point Market, CG will also be debuting the above new pieces.

Founder and lead designer of Christopher Guy (CG), Christopher Guy Harrison, reports that he host an official Autumn Grand Opening on Saturday, October 14 to inaugurate the brand’s flagship centerpiece. In addition, Christopher will be sharing the story of CG’s worldwide expansion and success as he delivers his address to Market attendees on Sunday, October 15.

CG will also be debuting new pieces:

  • Le Jardin (60-0515): As an emblem longevity and purity, Coco Chanel was captivated by the allure of the Fleur de Camélia. Carved from solid mahogany, Christopher designed this magnificent high-back bench to play homage to the Mademoiselle legacy. Also available as dining chairs (60-0364 and 60-0365), as dining chairs with lower backs (30-0084, 30-0085, 30-0086 and 30-0087), as a very high-back chair (60-0513 and 60-0514);
  • Emblème (50-3058): With a deceptively simple design of cut glass panes in different sized rectangles, this 12-part mirror still displays the harmony and sophistication emblematic of the CG style; and
  • Veronique (76-0370): An exquisite circular dining table design with a hand-sculpted mahogany base in three curved V shapes tipped with antique brass feet. The tabletop displays the beauty of the wood grain and making a spectacular statement piece. Perfectly paired with the CG Lazy Susan in brass, 76-0380, or in wood, 76-0382.

High Point Market Week comes on the heels of CG’s launch and partnership with floor covering brand, Nourison, creating a luxurious collection of hand-tied area rugs, each designed with the CG lifestyle mood in mind, fusing timeless and contemporary elements that embody the Christopher Guy look.

CG also became the brand choice as suppliers of the film sets for American Beauty Star, a star-studded Project Runway-like competition series focusing on the beauty industry, currently airing on Lifetime TV.

CG will host a celebration within its 20,000 square-foot High Point centerpiece, which launched earlier this year. Theatrical and exciting “Cirque-inspired” performers will entertain attendees at the Grand Opening, as aerialists soar through the centerpiece showroom and ballerinas dance on the water features outside the beautiful two-story building.

“What a dazzling year it has been for our tenth anniversary,” exclaimed Mr. Harrison. “We’ve been so incredibly fortunate to be able to extend our global footprint in unique ways, collaborating with outstanding talent in film and TV, while banding together with a luxury brand such as Nourison, who share our vision and focus on craftsmanship and style.”

Events are invitation-only, with the exception of press credentials. Kindly note, there are a limited number of openings available for interviews with Christopher Guy Harrison from October 12 – 16, 2017. Photocalls and interviews for the evening of the Grand Opening (October 14 from 5:00-8:00pm EDT) are available. Media must arrive by 4:45pm for a photo of Christopher Guy Harrison and aerialists and ballerinas. Electronic press kits will be available at the showroom for those wishing more information.
