This table speaks for itself…. it’s made of Volcanic lava, giving it the dynamic and natural beauty and strength of its namesake. It is utterly weatherproof, and able to withstand extreme heat and cold, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor with handsome sophistication. And when I tell you that pictures don’t do it justice– it’s even more stunning in person. It is available in round and rectangular tables, as well as cocktail and console table sizes. The handcrafted stone is baked at several hundred degrees to diamond-like solidity. This emerald coast- inspired colorway evokes turquoise blues, liquid azure hues, and a sense of dappled light glinting off ocean waves… the perfect and durable table to be used inside or out!
Lighting is my FAVORITE! Well that and tile 🙂 We spotted lots of lighting in Highpoint from wood bead fixtures to cut crystal accents to cascading tiered fixtures that were over 10′ tall! Metals are still mixed and glass elements are BIG! Loving these fixtures from the Currey and Co., Dovetail, and John Richard showrooms!
From bedding to pillows to accessories to an ACTUAL bed and nightstand–
WOVEN was on trend! Imagine curling up with a thick, chunky wool blanket.. that’s what was EVERYWHERE! Below are some of our favorites!
Boho-inspired pillows were everywhere and go great with trend number 2- paper art! The texture, fringe, and deep colors were seen throughout market as shown on sofas and pillow displays. Natural earth tones set the mood for textile inspired and heavily textured pillows. The colors were rich and blended with naturals to give an urban and ethnic feel. We like mixing these with solids to make a statement on any sofa, chair, or bed. Some of our favorites were from Callisto Home, Villa, Loloi, and V. Rugs and Home.
For a design project, sometimes you need something that’s not a mirror and not another piece of art. Sometimes a space dictates something that’s non-subject matter related based on what else is already in the room– something with dimension and sculpture. Here’s the perfect solution– paper art! Lots of manufacturers are hopping on this trend, and we have LOTS heading to our showroom. Here are some of our favorite new intros from market….
And here are some from our favorite vendors!
While it’s hard to pinpoint a certain “style” among the number of showrooms we visit in Highpoint, you begin to see trends emerge throughout the market that are the common factor of where the next phase of design is heading. This spring there were lots of things that stood out that I’ll highlight in future posts, but one major unifying look was the use of wood and natural materials in furniture finishes. Although it will always be around in our area, the grey-ish tones are slowly taking a backseat to more dark warm woods and natural brown finishes. We loved the modern lines and chunky rustic woods that dominated showrooms across the board. Take a look at some of these pieces that were our favorites!
If you’re scared of designing with color– I’ll save you some time …. stop reading now. The bold, beautiful colors in the Century Highpoint showroom were show-stoppingly AMAZING! Lots of rich jewel tones mixed with basic whites and neutrals. It presented such a great look mixed with classic design elements and classic lines. Our favorite look (and heading to our showroom, of course) were the rich aqua blues and emerald greens that are such a staple in our area.
Look at these beautiful shots of the Hickory Chair showroom in Highpoint… lots of blush, neutral tones and natural elements. And oh yeah, that WALLPAPER !!!
The first of MANY Spring Highpoint Inspiration blog posts! There were some great new bedding looks– from bright and colorful to natural and subdued.. we were loving all the texture and pattern! Take a look at some our our favorites headed to the showroom soon!
The best day of our lives! I became Mrs. Cannon, and couldn’t be happier to share this crazy thing called life with my new husband! Our wedding was everything we envisioned, and we had an amazing team to make it all happen! We didn’t let a little Tropical Storm Nate ruin our fun! Enjoy these beautiful pics courtesy of Dear Wesleyann! There are so many beautiful ones, I had a hard time choosing which to share!
