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!

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!
