Photo Shoot in Historic Market Square, High Point NC

Charleston Forge - Tuesday, June 03, 2014

"Historic Market Square is a former furniture factory that has been transformed into unique upscale showrooms.  The building features five floors with an incredible backdrop of original hardwood floors, exposed brick, massive wood columns and other original features of this re-purposed factory complex. Market Square is North Carolina’s largest adaptive-use building listed on the National Register of Historic Places." (copy from

Charleston Forge has a beautifully designed showroom located in the heart of Historic Market Square.  Walking though the halls of the building feels like walking back in time and architecturally there is so much to take in.  We love being located in this building, it is where we began and it is where our roots are.  With our introduction pieces already on display in High Point, we took our photographers, along with Art and Susan Barber to do all the grunt work, and spent several days photographing for the new catalog. The finished images will be released soon enough, but in the meantime, enjoy these behind the scene candid shots.  You can tell we had so much fun!  We love what we do and sharing it with you!

Art Barber and Karen Lehmann straighten the backdrop for this Charleston Forge console.

Philip Holman, photographer and marketing director for Charleston Forge,  checking lighting and exposure. A lot of work goes into each detail of each shot.

Susan and Mindy kick off their shoes and get to work...who are we kidding, this didn't feel like work.

Art sneaks into our shot, notice the mischievous grin. 

Our designers set up the shot for this Baker's Rack, double checking each detail. 

Um...Art...I think you missed a spot.

Shooting from a different perspective.

Still smiling at the end of a long day.
