HIGH POINT, N.C.-Interior designer Lisa Mende, of Lisa Mende Design, won the ninth spot as a Style Spotter for the October High Point Market, having received the most votes in a contest given by High Point Market and Olioboard, an online interior design moodboard creator. Mende was one of 15 finalists, each of who created room boards on Olioboard, using a library of photos from April High Point Market to design a virtual room. Voters were then invited to view the final boards and vote for their favorite.

Mende now joins the team of Style Spotters for October: Traci Zeller, Traci Zeller's Blog; Gretchen Aubuchon, Fashion + Decor; Lori Dennis, Design Camp blog; Julia Buckingham Edelman, Material Girls; Janel Laban, Apartment Therapy; Cassandra LaValle, coco+kelley; Stacy Naquin, Stacy Naquin blog; and Jason Oliver Nixon, Demystifying Design. The Style Spotters will discover trends and products during the High Point Market, "pin" them on Pinterest and then present selected exhibitors with signs that highlight the Style Spotter's name as well as a QR code and URL for the market's Pinterest board.

High Point Market launched its Style Spotter program at last year's October High Point Market.
