Thrilled to introduce you here to Trudy Simmons and her company Bellascenda. Due to the major rennovation project underway at the Suites at Market Square,  Bellascenda, an exhibitor there, needed to find a place to store their showroom contents following October 09  High Point Furniture Market.

What a great place to stow your TV!

Pleased that Jeff Moore, my sales associate, suggested I offer Trudy some space in my warehouse for such, and thus, have given up a corner for her to not only store but display her product.

Further, Trudy and her company are members of the High Point Design Center, so, if you as a designer, would be planning to attend any of our First Wednesday Events, or are planning to come to the luncheon/presentation that Antiques by Zaar is hosting during the HPDC sponsored Unity in Design Event, you have the opportunity to see a lovely collection of Bellascenda’s merchandise.  A sales associate will also be available to answer any and all questions you may have on this product, which serves to “lift flat screen tvs out of beautiful furniture.”

A few things to know about Bellascenda.

Another sleek looking home for your TV

For the past 6 years Bellascenda has been making thier furniture in the United States, with the bulk of it produced by the Amish in Pennsylvania. And like my Chinese Antiques, their product is green.

During Market you can find Bellascenda at the new and improved Suites at Market Square. Between Markets you can find them at 400 Mandustry St, High Point NC (by appointment) and 24/7 you can find them online at and also (Trade only) at TODL.

P.S. Curious how Trudy and I met?  That would be through a Linked In! She needed a room during Market and I had advertised that my sales associate had one available. She took the room, we connect each Market and, on we go….a passion for our respective businesses and drive to see them thrive furthers our connection.
