Market Picks

Were any of you at High Point Market this week?
Yeah, me neither.
Something about living in Brazil...

It doesn't matter, though, because a handful of other bloggers and designers got their Instamatic on, and gave us all a glimpse of what we can plan to see in the coming months in terms of furniture, and accessories.

There were some fresh things I was happy to see on the horizon, but a bit surprised that some trends (framed coral?  rustic/industrial?) still seem to be having some time in the limelight.

Here's my pics among the iPhone images,  remember, "Going to Market" is about inspiration...

A tufted, tangerine leather sofa.  Crazy love.


Punch-colored throws over masculine chairs.  Divine.

Mary Macdonald's line for Robert Abbey lamps - I'd use a pair with a more curvy, traditional console.


I sort of sit and stare at this desk.  One of the few glimpses of chrome I saw in a sea of brass and gold.


Can you tell I'm drawn to accessories with graphic statements these days?  Ottoman by Barclay Butera.


The peacock-blue velvet of the sofa won my heart, but I'm also crazy about the somewhat manly take on the tufts.


Clearly, hides (and even more now) skins are having a moment.  Get thee some.



Awhile back, I snatched up a malachite box and lighter for a song.  I doubt the going rate on this amazing tray is quite so kind, but if I were designing your room, you can bet I'd be trying to talk you into it.


...and finally, for all of you who loved and commented on the light fixture in this post, here ya go:  The Meri Drum for Oly Studio
