Dear Diva Readers,

It will take place in the Currey & Co showroom on Saturday October 17th from 3 to 5 PM and is sure to be one of the most fun events at High Point, as everyone knows Currey & Co’s showroom is THE place to be for a good time! The idea of the party came when we had the pleasure of taking the Currey & Co team on an Antiques Diva shopping tour of the Paris Flea Market this year during Maison Objet. Their team came over to Paris for inspiration and boy did they find it! We were able to take them to sections of the market they didn’t even know about. In fact, their PR Maven Bethanne Matari says, “The Currey & Co design team spent a full day with Toma & Dive Guide Danielle at Le Puce de Paris. Having been to the market more than 20 times on our own, they took us to the back side of the flea market where we’d never been before – and it was all NEW to us. We found lots of inspirations and a few concrete ideas on new furniture designs. The best part of the day (other than a superb lunch) was a tour of vintage clothing & fabric shops. We could have spent all day there! Toma and Danielle seemed to know just about every vendor at the flea market and were full of historical information on how Le Puce came to be. All in all, it was a thoroughly entertaining day—oh, and did I mention champagne! Bubbly always makes an excursion more fun.”
While Currey & Co is known for their lighting lines which include chandeliers, wall sconces, table and floor lamps, they also manufacture a wide range of home furnishings, garden furniture, and accessories. In fact, they’ve been a purveyor of distinctive garden furnishings since 1988. The essence of Currey & Company is not only the product for which it is known but also the very important people who help to create the product and carefully deliver it into the hands of those other important people, the customers, in a timely fashion. While people are key, the product is also the lifeblood of the company and at Currey & Company they take pride in their original design work , meticulous craftsmanship and careful attention to all details of a product. The effort of their multi-step hand-finishing process manifests itself in the richness and depth of the final finish of many of their products. The appearance of these pieces speaks of the human hands that have touched them as well as of the design skills and craftsmanship that have created them. They have the willingness to do what many other manufacturers regard as too difficult or too time-consuming, and it certainly shows.
