A Walk on the Wide Side

Animal prints have been big for a while now.  They seem to make an imprint, no pun intended, at some point every year, whether it be cheetah, zebra, giraffe, etc.  I have always been a fan of animal print; my favorite animal print is leopard.  And I love using them in many of the rooms I design. Here I used a tiger print as the main fabric on the sofa in my clients living space....more

High Point 2012: J. Douglas Living

I first heard about J. Douglas Living through Twitter.  Yes, you read correctly, Twitter.  Twitter is truly changing the design world by getting your name and your products out there.  J. Douglas Living had invited us to stop by there showroom, or I should say showrooms, while I was in High Point.  So I added them to our list of vendors to see, and I am so glad I stopped by.  They had so many beautiful pieces ranging from furniture, to lighting to accessories to dinnerware.  There products are great and the prices are as well!...more

While in High Point, I stopped by Hickory Chair.  And their showroom did not disappoint!  Alexa Hampton was there to promote her line with Hickory Chair; all of her pieces were beautiful.  Hickory Chair's furniture is not only beautiful, but they pay attention to the details.  Oh, and did I mention comfortable as well?!  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed seeing them in person. ...more

High Point 2012: Put a Little Oomph in Your Home

 One furniture line that was a must see was Oomph.  This is the first year they had a booth at High Point, and it was a hit amongst the High Point crowd. Oomph is known for having bold colors in their line, and they showcased all 16 color finishes at their booth.  One of my favorite pieces was the Charleston Mirror & the Tini II Table.  Oh the Tini tables are just the cutest little tables ever!  If you are wanting to add bold pops of color, check Oomph's products out first! ...more

C.R. Laine

C R Laine is a great line that I was drawn to because of the look but when I learned about their environmental policy I was sold.  All of us must do our part and we must do it now. Enjoy!  ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY...more

High Point 2012 Spotlight: Thomas & Gray

One of my first day stops at High Point was Thomas & Gray.  Their showroom had a great blend of traditional and transitional pieces.  There were so many pieces that are perfect for several posts--so expect to see these pieces and more of their line in future posts. Their attention to detail was apparent.  For example, the insides of all case goods are completely finished and the backs are 3/4-inch thick and tenoned into the case frames (see below). Telluride Spindle Barstool ...more
