Out and About Town with Mr. Brown High Point Furniture Market

October 30, 2014

Another post from High Point Furniture Market, but this is “Out and About Town with Mr. Brown High Point Furniture Market”

For those of you attending the High Point Furniture Market… it pays to venture into the town of  High Point and head to Mr. Brown on 114-116 East Kivett Street (corner of Wrenn) and check out their “hidden treasures” of upholstery and case goods with interesting prints and woven designs. Mr Brown is a duplex store with many interesting products for the home and is  not shy of color and personality with a focus on updated classics.

High Point Furniture Market – Legacy Home

October 29, 2014

Nancy here, as promised still sharing from The High Point Furniture Market!!

Market might be over but the excitement is not…. Have to share “Legacy Home” because I was so impressed with their style, sense of color and fabric choices…a well merchandised and styled line of bedding, pillows, drapery and headboards. See for yourself as you view the following fab prints, patterns and weaves! Legacy Home Collections are available through-the-trade and their website is legacylinens.com

High Point Market – “Dovetail”

October 28, 2014

One Company… so many different personalities… A fantastic mix of quilted leather,  mixed fabric tufting details and updated classics with old world charm!

I love seeing so many variations on chairs this market in many fabrics and shapes.

Designers were more daring in mixing styles this market especially within each chair silhouette combining raw finishes with elegant fabrics.

The countryside in South Wales oozes an amazing rustic charm. All the textures that come together to give the landscape and structures such a great feel. Such wonderful inspiration from a beautiful country.

Fusion Friday – Cork

October 17, 2014

Cork is quite possibly one of the better materials for any type of creating; fashion and home included. Oak trees that grow in the western Mediterranean form thick, rugged and corky bark. Over time, this park can develop a considerable thickness and can be harvested every 10-12 years as cork. The harvesting of the cork does not harm the tree, and the a new layer of cork regrows, making it a renewable resource.cork

As seen at

Nancy Fire of Design Works International attended Maison Objet and Paris Design Week and snapped this candid photo of a stylish yet relaxed pair.

“Our friend Nancy Fire, founder of Design Works International, takes inspiration from every part of life and integrates those experiences into her work. Whether it is the creamy foam of a cappuccino with its brown crust or the blush of a young woman’s cheek, Fire is a collector of details. This approach creates designs that are unique and completely original for each client.

Fire recently attended Maison Objet and Paris Design Week and snapped some candid photos of locals lounging around in the Marais area of Paris. This inspired us to seek design inspiration in the everyday things – people and their fashions.”
