High Point Furniture Market: Day 2

In a world where everything is starting to look the same, it is nice to find things that are inspiring and different.  Pieces that make you stop, look, and sit down.

We loved the lines of this chair.  Use it in a living room or pull it up to a table or desk.  We also loved the price...$795!

Antique flush mounts from an old restaurant in Paris....

Tribal pieces are very in right now....these shell necklaces on iron stands make a STATEMENT.

This cocktail table and side kick were show stoppers.  We adore the pink and love the idea of possibly putting wallpaper on top of the pink to instantly change the look.  They are also a steal: Side Table- $798 and cocktail table $995.

Palecek never disappoints.  This chair is just perfection.  It is so beautiful I would almost say it is a piece of art....

Loved these black wooden trays- they are sleek and organic all at the same time. 

We were blown away by the Verellen showroom....we have always loved it but there was something about it this year- just clean, simple and cool.  Modern, sophisticated and timeless all rolled into one with the most wonderful wool boucles and soft leathers...could have stayed all day.

High Point Furniture Market Fall 2015 Recap

We had an amazing time at High Point Furniture Market this past weekend.

Loved seeing all the new introductions, connecting with old friends and meeting new ones!  

Day 1 - On my way trying to not get makeup on my white blouse... 

Super Cool Vintage Airport Sectional...Your entire family could live on this.

Obsessed with these laser cut butterflies...Would be AMAZING anywhere!

 

Dunes and Duchess Does it Again with their Fabulous Flair!  Their booth was one of our favorites!

Loved these antique copper barstools that came off of an old ship.  How cool would they be at a pool house bar????

 

Bobby McAlpine's new line for Elegant Earth- STUNNING!

I love how the universe sends people to you right when you need it the most.  I loved spending time with Sam Simon, Tamara Stephenson and Jonathan Legate - you have reminded me that there are GOOD people on this planet and we are all connected!

 Tune in tomorrow for more of our adventure in High Point!

 

 

Keeping Bespoke Tailoring Alive….

I love beautiful details...hand smocking is one of my favorites and I love using it as a header in window treatments and to see it used on this beautiful blouse by @vilshenko_official makes me tear up. We need to start teaching sewing in the U.S. School System again before this beautiful art form is lost and wouldn't it be nice to know how to sew your own button back on or repair a hem- or better yet hem your own pants?

Our "Backyard Karaoke Party" Episode on Fix it and Finish it

Tune in tomorrow for our "More Storage Please" episode!

Fix it and Finish it Episode: More Storage Please

On our "More Storeage Please" Episode of Fix it and Finish it with Antonio Sabato Jr we help a family revamp their family room/playroom.  This was a tough space because it is a combination family room/play room with absolutely no storage.  For a family with young children storage is a must!

 

 

We pulled out the OLD carpet and linoleum flooring and replaced it with beautiful new hardwood floors.  We then painted all the walls a beautiful slate blue and added wallpaper in the playroom with a dark navy paint below the chair rail to anchor the pattern.

  

 

We added custom window seats in the family room and playroom to add more seating and hidden storeage.

 

 

We used a stain resistant carpet for the heavy traffic the family room receives and to make it more attractive we notched out the corners to give the carpet some interest in the room.

 

 

The desk we chose for Jill has enough surface area on top for her to do her DIY projects but small enough to not be too cumbersome in the room.

 

We made the playroom room "fun" but sophisticated so it wasn't an eye sore from the family room.

 

John Morris' original spirographs add the perfect punch of color and guess what?  They will soon be available for sale on our webstore!  

 

Don't miss our next episode of Fix it and Finish it 4/27 where we take an useable sunroom and make it the go to room in the family's house!
