High Point Market Spotlight: Alfonso Marina
This post is one of a series covering our favorite finds at High Point Market. Today we spotlight Alfonso Marina.
When we reflect on our favorite High Point Market booths we can’t help but think about Alfonso Marina. Alfonso Marina was one booth that nailed our beige, brown, and natural wood trend. Their designs embody the warmth of whites and neutral palettes, bringing the feeling of serenity to any space.
I always admired designers that create pieces able to elevate a space without a lot of fuss. Starting his journey in 1971, Alfonso Marina is an artist who does just that with his pieces.
“Our goal is to offer superior pieces with casual elegance, those that show harmony in design and proportion, not limiting to a certain period or provenance,” Alfonso Marina said.

Every detail in the Brou chair reflects a thoughtful design. From from rich dark wood to the brass end caps on each leg, it’s a great way to bring some natural glamour to the table or even to your living room. The perfectly tailored cushion is soft and inviting, making the piece approachable.
ALZEY COCKTAIL TABLE
The Alzey Cocktail Table can transform a room. It doesn’t skimp on details and has a flexible palette that is sure it looks great wherever you decide to put it. The durability, strength, and stability of this piece prove Alfonso Mariana craftsmanship high-quality materials are built for longevity.
Every exquisite detail of the Rhone Chair is elegant and yet slightly urbane. The sleek curves of the wood with a plush white cushion marries style and texture. This seat can be used in so many spaces in so many different ways.
We love the way this table elevates a room without too many distractions. This table’s solid frame is hand-wrapped in rattan to achieve just the right texture and variation in tone. The sturdy top preserves the natural materials and brass end caps on the feet add an elegant finishing touch.
The Loire Sofa caught my attention right away. There are very few items I’ve seen that makes me think about how I can build the entire room around it. When I saw the sofa, I imagined an entire room surrounding this sofa with other Victorian themed colors and furniture.
