S23 E15 – What to Watch for with High Point Brand Ambassador Jackie Von Tobel and Thriving as a Small Design Firm with Jonathan Berger

Today’s episode of The Chaise Lounge is a double header. Nick’s two guests are High Point Market’s Brand Ambassador Jackie Von Tobel and New York/ California/ New Mexico designer Jonathan Berger. 

Jackie Von Tobel is a designer who brands herself as colorful, classy, cool. She and Nick talk about what to look forward to at Fall High Point Market and the value of going to markets and experiencing the breadth of all the products the industry has to offer. 

Jonathan Berger tells Nick about his design journey from Pasadena, California to all over the world. Berger feeds his creativity by revisiting his love for antiques at fairs all over Europe and the U.S. 

Make sure to visit both these designers at their websites JackieVonTobel.com and JohnathanBergerInteriorDesign.com 

If you’re going to High Point Market, make sure to keep an eye out for the fuschia-shirted High Point Paparazzi and remember to get photos from them throughout Market.

Social media plays a big part in that these days, as does making regular visits to the design markets and taking part in speaking opportunities. It is vital for anyone producing signature collections to be visible at market
