Stanley Showroom High Point Market

One of my favorite tours at the market this year was at Stanley. They have put a lot of effort into one of their newer , Coastal Living. I love the bright colors and distressed finishes you find on very traditionally styled pieces. These pieces could be used anywhere and add a lot of interest to a room. They would be a dream in a beach home. I couldn't help but get a bit camera happy on our tour! Enjoy! Just look at all the wonderfully worn colors they offer on every piece. Yummy!

Sea glass table. These colors made me want to change my entire home!

A shaker style side board comes to life in a wash of sea foam green.

This chair is actually a turquoise gingham check.

I love the slip covered chairs. Can't you just envision yourself having lobster at the beach at this table?

Apple green is so fresh!

The inside of their secretary had an outlet for computer mounted right on the front of the inside organizer. How clever!

I love how you can mix every color of case goods in this line and they flow seamlessly with each other.

Blues in the mix!

Pinks and sea foams.

Look at the butter yellow chair near the pink. Completely unexpected but works wonderfully.

A perfect example of multiple colors used. Apple green, sea glass, periwinkle and cream and wood.

The blacks and blues and reds work just as well!

Aren't these stools fun?

This chair is so versatile and so comfortable too (of course I had to try a few pieces out?) and we saw it used in many different settings with many different fabrics. One of my favorite pieces from the collection. Hope you enjoyed your tour!


  1. Beautiful! Love the easy, relaxed style.

  2. I'm glad to see that painted furniture is even more popular for the coming year. I have been painting some piecies and I don't want the painted look to go out of style soon.

  3. I love the painted furniture pieces also. I painted an old chest of drawers once and would wonder if I had made a mistake doing so. Thanks for sharing your photos with us I even got a few ideas from some. I also Love that arrangment with the Rooster!
    Peace and Many Blessings

  4. Oh I just love all of this. It's so light and airy. The sea glass colors are gorgeous, they are almost transluscent. They really make the room "glow". Beautiful, thanks for sharing this. Kathy

  5. Thanks for the tour. It made me dream of a Cottage home by the sea. The soft colors are yummy.
    Also really liked the style of the furniture. That showroom was very well done. I love rooms that make you just want to sit a spell.

  6. Oh I agree....yummy, yummy. If I could justafford a beach house and the furniture to fill it. sigh
