Hey y'all! Greetings from the South! Adam and I are in North Carolina this week shopping the High Point Market. We wanted to share a few photos (we are taking with our iPhones) of what we are seeing and buying. We are seeing a lot of relaxed looks. Even the high end is more buttoned down and casual. And let me say, what a great way to live. Comfortable. The wood finishes are reclaimed, bleached, carused, pickled, white-washed, and grayed out. The fabrics are soft, natural textures. Linens, wovens, velvets, leathers - attention is still in the details - but overall the affect is relaxed.
We are meeting a lot of the tastemakers down here:
Thomas O-Brien - the man who made Vintage Modern so very popular. He has a line of rugs through Safavieh as well as a new book out called "American Modern". (He signed his book for me and I got a little shy - Here's the photo!)
Thom Filicia (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) - Just introduced a bold new eclectic vintage-inspired line through Vanguard. You've NEVER seen furniture like this before! I'm stoked to bring it to you. (We talked design with Thom for a good while, I even got a kiss on the cheek when we said goodbye. I dig that guy!)
Laura Kirar introduced a new nature inspired line of accessories and lamps through Arteriors. SO inspiring!
I can hardly wait till it all shows up at Alice Lane so I can share it with all of you! You're gonna love it too!
