about pandora's manor

history

The home was built in 1905 by Henry Fraser, co-founder of the Alma and Myrtle Desk companies (which became the largest office furniture manufacturers in the country in the 1950s). They, like so many other furniture companies, were attracted by High Point's rail links, central location, and proximity to the hardwood forests of central and western North Carolina. Mr. Fraser sold the house in the 1920s and moved to Florida, but Pandora's Manor remains nationally recognized as a part of the West High Avenue Historic District and one of High Point's finest early examples of Colonial Revival architecture.

the bed and breakfast

Pandora’s Manor not only includes 6 luxury bedroom suites but also shared spaces including a glamorous music room parlor, a handsome living room, a classic dining room, and a lively kitchen and bar. To honor the home’s classic American appeal, a roster of some of America’s greatest interior designers have been enlisted to design each of the B&B’s bedrooms. Hailing from all over the country, and representing a breadth of aesthetics, each designer has left their unique footprint on the house, creating an overall aesthetic that is a feast for the senses. The interior designers include: Thom FiliciaTobi FairleyBarclay ButeraMadcap CottageCelerie Kemble, and Alexa Hampton.

THOM FILICIA

Thom Filicia has skillfully paired his contemporary style with the historical feel of his space, creating a loungey feel among 14-foot ceilings and large windows. The suite includes a seating area for relaxing and entertaining and a view of the upcoming garden and event space.

TOBI FAIRLEY

Tobi Fairley added paneling to mimic the home’s original woodwork and her bold black, yellow, and gray color scheme commands a distinguished presence.

BARCLAY BUTERA

Barclay Butera's suite sports his signature blue palette alongside layers of texture from hand-painted wallpaper to hand-picked artwork. This space will also have views of our upcoming garden and outdoor event space, making it perfect for a bridal suite.

MADCAP COTTAGE

On the ground floor we have our Madcap Cottage room, where pattern abounds. From upholstered walls and vibrantly patterned doors to a custom armoire and corona, this room is a celebration of pattern, color, and texture. 

CELERIE KEMBLE

Celerie Kemble’s room is light, airy, fresh, and breezy. Her feminine style creates a serene escape for relax and rest.

ALEXA HAMPTON

Alexa Hampton has created a beautiful Upper East Side feel in her room. Dark, sultry colors and plush, lustrous fabrics all jostle for attention in her space.
