A slight detour to North Carolina for furniture shopping

I’ve got to confess, I have a chair fetish. Some people collect stray animals, I collect stray chairs. So, when I lucked out this past spring and got to go to the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina—a bucket-list kind of place for furniture fiends like myself—I couldn’t wait to hop on that cross-country flight and get the ultimate fix in all things home furnishings. 

Topping my list of must-see showrooms was LEE Industries, which is providing all the upholstered pieces for the Sunset Breezehouse. LEE is a family-owned business and all their furniture is handcrafted—using earth-friendly materials and practices—at their facilities in North Carolina.
