High Point Market Spring 2015

High Point Furniture Market opened this past Saturday.  Such a great opportunity to see the new items for favorite lines and discover new ones.  Plus, if you’re lucky, you get a few ‘star’ sightings from the design world.  

Due to our schedule, we only had one day at market.  But that’s just enough time to hone in on select, favorite showrooms to see the gorgeous displays and the new lines that are being introduced.  I have many favorite pieces and collections, but I have to say I was absolutely blown away by Kelly Wearstler’s collection by EJ Victor.  I think my jaw actually dropped when I saw it.  A score for EJ for getting her collection and another score for their excellent production of her designs.

Arteriors Home is a favorite of ours for their lighting, accessories and accent furniture.  We carry several of their items in our shop and they complement our other items beautifully.  We love the quality of product and their designs never disappoint.  One of our favorite items was the black hide ottoman with a brass base – maybe because it had such a Kelly Wearstler vibe(?).

Visual Comfort – also at the top of our list to visit.  Last year they were one of our favorite showrooms, but they were also serving mimosas that Sunday morning (and the servers said because several people seemed hesitant to take them that early, and on a Sunday, they kept coming around to us, two who clearly had no problem throwing back a few mimosas).  Anyway, this year they happened to not be serving mimosas when we visited, but the roster of designers and beauty of the product puts them at the top regardless:  Ralph Lauren, Thomas O’Brien, Kelly Wearstler, Aerin Lauder…  The lighting there is like art.  So well designed and sculptural.

We’ve only recently discovered Phillips Scott, based out of Atlanta, and have their Havana Chairs in our shop.  They have a nice selection and their price point is very good.  I’m particularly interested in the Copley slipper chair which comes at a price that would allow it to be re-upholstered in a custom fabric and still be a good price for the end product – it would make a great accent chair.

I like NOIR for their unique, casual pieces and we carry a few in our shop.  I focused this visit on checking out their accessories, particularly their marble items – I think I’ll be considering these selections for the shop.

And this little ottoman from Worlds Away…  Love the finish, and I can imagine it reupholstered in a patterned velvet.

Lastly, I took the opportunity to check out Mirror Image Home and was very impressed with the quality and selection of product.  I’m not usually a big fan of sunburst mirrors, but these, particularly the gold leaf by Barclay Butera, are done very well.  And the sapphire blue mirror by Bunny Williams is stunning.

    LOVE the photos! Love the glass top brass accent table. Love the marble accessories. Love all the brass. Love that little ottoman. Don’t love the sunburst mirrors – never have. How fun market must have been!
