Belle&Burl

We are thrilled to announce that Belle&Burl's Charleston workshop is up and running and taking orders.  Each piece is made by hand by one of our artisans to create a timeless piece that will stand the test of time in quality and style.

The Griffon Chair combines steel and luxurious upholstery to create the perfect mix for any space.

 

The Pierre Dining Chair is a great size dining chair that adds a nice line to the dining room table while being super comfortable for a long dinner party or to be pulled up as an additional chair in any room.

Our best selling piece, the Hampstead Table, is so versatile it can be used in a dressy living room to a more casual family room and it ALWAYS looks better as a pair!

 

Did you know we do custom work?  Our Hampstead Table will soon be making it's debut as a fabulous cocktail table in a formal living room.

Belle&Burl loves to go out and find inspiration for their pieces.  This Victorian spindle is Burl's favorite ....tune in to see how he uses this as a pattern for a future Belle&Burl design.

The wrapped bar can be put on casters to easily move it from room to room and can be wrapped in a variety of vinyl grasscloths and textures.

Sourcing locally in Charleston for special wood and products that are hard to find.

This Live Oak mantle was an installation by Belle&Burl in Virginia....

 

The Hampstead Table looks gorgeous in a painted finish!

Looking forward to sharing more of Belle&Burl's line of fine furniture and upholstery made in the USA by local artisans.

Summer Sizzle in Fritz Porter's Atelier

So...it has been one whirlwind of a summer.  While we are getting our new Charleston design office and Belle&Burl settled in to their new spaces we decided to add a little more excitement to our summer!

Partnering with Roderick Coles of The Curious Orange Store we tackled one of the design industry's hottest new destinations Fritz Porter's Atelier space.  Take a look at our labor or love and check some fun photos from our launch party.  A huge thank you to Kate Thornton for her beautiful images.

 

In love with the way our custom Donghia shades look on the killer midcentury lucite lamps....

Concrete studies by Roderick Coles are the perfect quad for any wall....

Our Gallery Wall installation is calm, cool and collected....

My favorite pair of lamps EVER.... Italian and midcentury - the perfect combination.

Abby Kasonik's gorgeous painting flanked by Juan Lamarca's  incredible photography takes my breath away...

Thank you to Harvest Catering for the perfect summer drinks and delectable hors d'oeuvres.

Belle&Burl's Hampstead table in Black Walnut is a must see!

One of the best things I have ever tasted...Harvest Catering's Scallop Ceviche and Watermelon Gazpacho..

Loved seeing the amazing crew from Fine Rugs of Charleston and Terry Stephenson of Juxtaposition Home & Garden

More lovelies from Harvest Catering .....

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!
