“Celebrating 20 Years of Living Life Colorfully”
Saturday April 2 | 4:00-6:00 pm | IHFC C-202 Social Event
Patti Carpenter, Global Trend Ambassador, and the principal designer of Carpenter & Company, will be the guest host for their first event, “Celebrating 20 Years of Living Life Colorfully”. The CEO and President of Phillips Collection, Mark Phillips, will be joining Patti and sharing insights into the evolution of both brands and the global resources that go into their unique collections.
Patti said, “I cannot believe that it has been 20 years! Time certainly flies when you are doing what you love and with people you love. I began these years with Mark and Julie Phillips, who I call my godparents in this industry.” Reminiscing, she goes on to talk about traveling together with Mark and Julie, “Our relationship only deepened as we traveled to Guatemala, Vietnam and Thailand and developed a collection that also included ceramics from Nicaragua and Peru.”
The CEO shared, “I am excited to celebrate Patti’s decades of experience in the furnishings industry. We have always shared a passion for luxury and products, color and design and each of us takes inspiration from nature and the world around us.”
A tour within Phillips Collection’s expansive 400,000 square foot High Point, NC warehouse facility is going to be included with these events.

Live from HPMKT with Mark Phillips & Barrie Livingstone – on Navigating Luxury
Tuesday April 5 | 10:00-11:00am | Phillips Collection Warehouse Facility, 916 Finch Ave.
On April 5, there will be a vigorous discussion between Mark Phillips and Barrie Livingstone, the interior designer of House of Barrie. The author of Interior Design Tips Every Realtor Should Know But Doesn’t and fellow retailer, Barrie Livingstone, stated, “Navigating luxury is probably the single most important thing I do as a designer. Successful interior designers understand that perceived value is everything.”
Using a dual segmented format, the event will be done through in-person engagement and live through Zoom. This way guests that could not attend HPMKT can join via virtual broadcast. “I say that perception is 9/10th’s the law. Perceived value evaluates to quality of construction, look of finish and proportion – all things that Phillips Collection knows intimately in designing their luxury products. When you have those three elements in your design – you have everything. I can’t wait to work with Mark Phillips on this talk and to share insights on how we navigate luxury.”
Phillips Collection is going to offer showroom tours to fully showcase their newest Spring collections. They will highlight best-selling categories such as furniture, wall decor, and sculptures in their latest inventory. Phillips Collection will also provide accessories to and copies of their newest print catalog: Impress.
