Design Team Favorites: Fabrics and Wallcoverings

Designers deal with fabrics and wallcoverings daily.  It is their discerning eye that can look at two fabric samples, which to others might seem identical, and determine which would look best on a piece a furniture.   Presented with new samples daily, most of the designers have pinned up the fabrics they love or that inspire them around their desks. This month, we asked everyone  to share their current favorites. With so much love for fabrics and wallcoverings, you might just call us a bunch of …

Joni Vanderslice : Fall High Point Market Favorites

If you have never been to the High Point Furniture Market, let me tell you that it can be a fast and furious experience!  There is more to see than can ever be seen, and days are strategically planned to cover as much ground as possible.  Being from High Point, I also have the added bonus of getting to visit with family and friends during market week.  Now that I have been back from market and traveling for a few weeks, the dust has begun to settle and I wanted to take a moment to share some of my Fall High Point Market Favorites!

The J Banks Collection for Stanford Furniture is always the first stop on my list!  Several Spring 2012 introductions got a fresh new look with fun fabrics and lighter finishes. The Johnson Chair was  introduced with dark leather upholstery and stained wood in the spring – I love the light finish on the chair this fall.

.

.

The Laura Chair looks completely different with this fabric and detail.

The Nassau home theatre is a great cabinet from Habersham. The shelf configuration is unique, but still functional.

I loved this island, and we purchased the piece along with several other unique case goods for our Retail Store.

This is a great banquette and table!

I saw many adaptations of the behind sofa bookcase.

.

I loved Alexa Hampton for Hickory Chair’s high lacquer finishes!

.

On Monday October 15th, I was asked to speak on behalf of IDS, the Interior Design Society. I am thrilled that I was able to offer my “Master Editing” class for CEU credit!  I will be presenting again at the April 2013 High Point Market. Please join me if you will be in High Point.

Best,

Jenny Ladutko : Think Pink!

In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s think pink!  Pink is not just for Barbie’s Malibu home! Using pink in a space can be daunting for many, but it does not have to be so. By manipuating hue, saturation and balance, the color can become complex and create an interior that is warm, whimsical, sophisticated and bold.  Check out these spaces that celebrate pink!

This elegant hall is painted in the ideal shade of coral pink to accentuate the china blue elements. Using the same tone of pink on the walls, upholstery and decor makes the look more refined and livable.

The hot pink leather on these chairs makes a statement. The color and material combination adds a fun contemporary pop.

A bold, sophisticated use of color creates that “wow factor.”

The soft, muted pink in this scheme enhances a calm and relaxed space.

This armoire adds a subtle vintage charm in a pale hue of pink.

If pink on a wall or on large pieces of furniture requires too much of a commitment, try adding pink accents such as pillows and artwork.

Hickory Chair showcased these dining chairs at the October 2012 High Point Market. The inset of pink fabric is a fresh, graphic way to incorporate color while keeping a chic, tailored look.

As shown in the Coastal Living Style Home at Palmetto Bluff, nothing brightens up a room like a pink floral arrangement.

Whether subtle or vibrant, pink can effectively enhance any room. The next time you are looking for some color, try embracing pink and discovering endless possibilities!
