Local artist and designer duo featured at High Point Market

Published: Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 05:32 PM.

The couple went back up to North Carolina in March and hung 27 pieces of Jones' artwork. Cooper lent his touch to complete the design details so the space looked good to dealers and enticing to buyers. They completed the look in three days.

Cooper had the walls painted to wow and arranged the high-end leather furnishings with added touches, setting by setting.

"I worked with her leather colors and Peggy's art and pulled it together," said Cooper.

Cooper and Jones are under contract to redesign every six months for two years and McKinley's 15 national representatives are traveling year 'round promoting the leather, and now showing it in brochures featuring the couple's artistic designs.  

"McKinley Leather has been in business since 1989 and has never done this before," said Jones. "They have never had a single interior designer and artist under contract. It's a big deal."

All of Jones' art featured in the showroom is for sale.
