As most of you know we launched BeeLine Home Collection II at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC in October. Needless to say, the entire experience was an adventure. Rather than dwell on the nitty-gritty, I want to give you a taste of our mad-cap adventures and tell you how much fun we all had. Right off the bat, I must say that we had the most extraordinary group pulling everything together to create the furniture, design the showroom, help with sales, organize a party, and help us put our best foot forward in High Point. It was a masterful operation all around and triumphed with our winning the award for the Best Showroom Design at Market, and a very successful show.

Some magic moments:
