While I attended the Highpoint Furnishing Market a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help but notice two “trends” that seemed to be popping up everywhere. They were not necessarily together, so I thought I would do a little research and … Continue reading
High Point Furniture Market…I have been going twice a year now for many years and never seem to tire. Yes, of course, my feet ache like heck and I am completely exhausted and worn out by the end, but I … Continue reading
I had such a fantastic time at the D&D Building Spring Market yesterday! There were so many fantastic designs, and the lectures and interviews were a real delight, not to mention inspirational. Armed with a camera and a quest to go above and beyond finding what my clients are looking for, I gathered this collection of photos from the day.
I am starting to think there may be a reason why “navy” and “Nancy” are so close in spelling… I am just wild about navy blue! Though there was certainly more navy seen at the High Point in the fall, I was happy to see accents of it throughout the spring market.
There’s nothing better than successful cross-seasonal colors, and navy blue is a classic color and always trending both in interior design and in fashion. Quite frankly, there’s nothing wrong with that in my eyes!
Here are a few reasons why this color might need to start becoming a part of your everyday life…
Bright colors were so refreshing to see at High Point. It felt so alive with the colors of spring! I am a firm believer that bright colors in a home are both daring (look at those hot pink chairs from Stanley above, on paper it sounds a bit off-beat but look how gorgeous they are, especially next to the teal sofa) and fun! Pops of bright colors are a perfect way to think outside the box when decorating your home.
Here are some of my favorite bright pieces!
Bentley Churchill, an upholstery company, had some really beautiful frames this market. I find that this company falls under the radar far too much; I have them in my own home and they are hands down the most comfortable pieces in the house!
Here are a few pieces by them that I had to share. Get ready, you’re going to want to experience this comfort for yourself!
Although these pieces from Century Furniture have been in the line, they feel brand new with this new finish out by Century. This finish, Sage with a Dry Gold Brush (though I think it has a bit of a warm cream color to it), was seen on a few pieces on the floor, and I love the way it freshens up the already beautiful look of these pieces.
Here’s a couple more pieces that I fell in love with in this new Sage with Dry Gold Brush…
After a week in High Point, I returned home to a mile long to-do list of things to take care of. I’m still coming down from sensory overload from my time at Market. As you might expect, my mind is exhausted and as a result (try as I may!) I could not pick just one thing to feature! In just a week, I came across some mind-blowing designs that I am saving for a later date because it is just too good to limit to only one room. Prepare to have your jaw drop!Anyway, High Point was really fantastic. Stay tuned for plenty of stories of wonderful people I’ve met, pieces of inspiration, and photographs from this wonderful week.
After a week away from home, I may have a ton of things to catch up with, but I wouldn’t trade this for the world. I am incredibly grateful for these opportunities and to be able to do something that I love so much–and that I owe it all to you. Thank you for your readership and support!
The photo above is a sneak peek at what’s to come… I immediately fell in love with this sofa from Century Furniture!
