High Point Trend Report!

The first day of High Point Market...always an adventure! Jackie and I headed out the door at a good time and got to the shuttle location in record time! I actually thought the shuttles were not running on the first (unofficial) day of market, as we passed 6 lots that were empty with no flagmen furiously directing the traffic flow as usual...until we rounded one last corner and found Lot #1! Voila! This will undoubtedly be the one and only day we don't have to fight the crowds.

Lots of color and graphic pattern! Orange. Oh. Yes. Orange...a personal favorite (along with Pantone!)

 Here's one for Linda! Hot pink...another graphic. Tradition meets hip!

 Aqua continues to be bold with pink and orange sharing space.

And look at these lime green leather ottomans...not to mention that chair. Pick any Benjamin Moore color and they'll customize your chair. I like it.
 I found this darling chair with a print contrast outside back...I couldn't resist, as after all, it is chartreuse!

Chic slipcover! Check out the banding. Love. It.

 *note to self* Never, no never, no never trust a sales rep to photograph you...I did find this low backed bench that was my size (short legs and all...)It was a perfect fit. Seriously, comfort + style.


Look at these hip wing chairs. Urban. Cool. Comfortable.


 I love this super long tufted ottoman!


All of you dog lovers know the market for dog friendly furniture! This chair was marketed as one that all dogs love! (Their head rests in this open cradle, I can just see it!)


Dog beds made from Sunbrella fabrics!!!! Great news, because they are stylish, machine washable and Clorox friendly! Yes.

We did a little art shopping...lots of graphic prints, following suit with the furniture makers.

We hit a new resource who is just launching The Martha Stewart Fine Furniture line. Tomorrow is kick off day. Anyone out there think we should carry the line? Right now, we're first in line to be the area retailer. Just thinking.

From her collection, this beautiful gray with interior sea salt colored shelves....I'm sure she designed it for my personal milk glass collection.


 I did love this bedroom collection from her new launch. Clean. Modern. Fresh.

We ended the day with a slow walk back to the car. Ahhhhhh.

 Style search success.
