Market At High Point

This week was the design market in High Point. I was lucky enough to be able to spend a long day there. I took so many pictures but only about 1/4 of them showed up on my camera. I don't know why? I am going to start out by sharing one of my very favorite new finds/ This company is called Forever Green Art. click this link to learn more .forevergreenart . They do the most incredible arrangements out of dried and preserved product. I was drooling. Can you even handle this rooster arrangement? I was practically screaming on the floor but wanted to keep my cool.......
Look at this hydrangea and white rose arrangement. Drooling some more.......

I loved them all.......

Don't you just want this one for your fall centerpiece.......

Fruit was in almost every arrangement even if discreet.........

There were so many different varieties.......

Pheasant feathers...........oh I love it! They will custom make any arrangement. You can send them fabric etc and they will come up with their brilliance based on pictures, fabric etc. They had some fabulous Christmas arrangements but I am saving those pictures for some future holiday posts.

Barclay Buttera need I say more. Everything on his floor was fabulous. I think this was one of the most crowded areas. I did take more pictures of his things but those were among the missing shots.

There were a lot of hammered metals. Among them these stunning barrel shade beauties from Barbara Cosgrove.

How about this turquoise chandelier. Made out of all natural turquoise this beauty wholesaled for around seven thousand.

I loved this whimsical bunny lamp. Again from Barbara Cosgrove. Did you know they will custom match your shade to any Benjamin Moore color for a $40 fee?

Who would have known. Walt Disney has a line of lighting. Whom ever is designing for this is a talented team. Look at this chandelier!

This was one of the best crystal lamps I saw the whole show. Stunning.

There was a lot of furniture with fun finishes. One was this black chest with crystal knobs.

Look closer and you see this black on black finish.

Animal prints were still everywhere. Even on furniture!

Accessories. Always my weakness!

These were all at the Imax showroom.

I was able to take a tour of the Stanley showroom. Some of my favorites were definitely based on some Ralph Lauren designs.

Stunning side board.

A fun vignette.

This family room/den setting from Stanley was one of my favorite from the show. I have always been a fan of this look.

This sofa was incredible and I want it very badly LOL! I can just picture it in my study! I love the navy velvet tufted ottoman as well.

Mohair cushions with velvet mens suiting pillows, Scottish plaids and paisleys. Doesn't get much better than this.....

Oh wait it does! Leather sides yes I am still drooling!

These white lacquered cabinets were stunning!

This table had a wonderful detail in the bottom and legs.

I am eyeing this bench as well.

This wall unit had such a stunning curve to it. Look that ottoman was shown again in leather. Nice!

Come back tomorrow. I am going to take you on a tour of Stanley's new showroom for their Coastal living line. Hope enjoyed browsing High Point with me!


  1. Oh my what gorgeous things. Everything is just soooooo wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Marty

  2. God new better than to let me be a wealthy woman. He knew I would be a crazy person and buy everything in that place whether I had a place to put it or not!!

    Sooooo pretty!

    The florals!!! Awesome!!

    Lou Cinda :)

  3. So now you know how I feel, every time I read your blog - I drool every time. ;)

  4. I think, had I been with you, that we would have been drooling together.....I would love to do that someday.....what treasures, and I think I could love that sofa, too. I need a new one in the worst way!

    thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Oh, look at this place! It's marvelous! I would only covet two things - I'm being very good here - that Rooster arrangement and the bunny lamp! Oh, be still my heart! Thanks for the tour.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  6. on earth did you control yourself around all of that lovliness?!!!

    Thanks for the tour!!!


  7. Thanks for the tour! I think I'm in love with the rooster...:)

  8. You picked some great items to feature. I bet it's just overwhelming there with all the pretty things. I'm sure!!

  9. Oh I was going to say the floral arrangements are beautiful. Isn't it funny how they seem to come and go. I felt pressure to get rid of most all of I'm totally missing them. I'm heading to that website now.

  10. Oh you picked such beautiful things to show us! I would have been drooling too! I'll limit myself to the hammered metal shade and I might have to sneak off with the black on black chest. Just gorgeous! Can't wait to see what else you have to share. Kathy

  11. Yes I certainly did enjoy it! I've always thought I'd love to go to market, but then I think that it might be too overwhelming for me, so I loved that you selected the beauty for me to see. laurie

  12. Kimmcl you are so nice :-) Sheila those were two of my favorite things too. The lamp is not a new addition to her collection. I look at it every year and every year I walk away. One day I am just going to buy it! Stacey I wish you could see these arrangements in person. They are not artificial. Not silk they are actually dried in their natural form so all real just preserved. Stunning!

  13. oh Ginas at High Point too, wonder if you saw each
    other!! Great photos

  14. Hi KD! I must "borrow" some of these floral arrangement ideas!lol That rooster one especially!!!! I want that bunny lamp real bad!!!lol What a great place to spend hours looking!!! Thanks for sharing - Have a nice weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette (I don't remember if I commented on your mantel post but it looks GORGEOUS!)

  15. Oh my goodness, I saw way too many things I would want in my home. How lucky that you were able to go. Really enjoyed your pictures and gathered a lot of great ideas, thank you! Liz =)

  16. Great post, kd. I had read about disney's new line somewhere. Nice chandelier!!! Oh, those floral arrangements are to-die-for. Thanks forjavascript:void(0) sharing your trip with us. (i am on the hunt for a bench for the foot of my bed. that one you show would be perfect, i think. affordable?)

  17. Oh.My.Goodness. I would die right then and there because I wouldn't know what to look at first! I would have to have at least $100,000 disposable income to go! Oh and a HUGE truck!


    Robin :o)

  18. I'll take three of each, wrap them up and send them to me!!! WOW!! It's all so gorgeous. As a designer, I know how hard it is to walk away from all that loveliness. You appreciate it all, but can't possibly have it all in your home (or pay for it!)That's why it's so great to be able to enjoy it, even if it is in your client's home.

    You have such great taste picking out all these beautiful items to show us. Thanks for sharing!! I'll be back for more.


Please leave me a comment. I love hearing what you have to say. I read each and every one of your comments and I try to comment back when I can.
