Macdonald Sofa by Alexa Hampton for Hickory Chair High Point Fall Market 2013
Alexa Hampton was the talk of the market: seeing her work is one of the "don't miss" moments. The rooms showing her collection for Hickory Chair are colorful, layered with pattern, texture, accessories, artwork and, of course, really lovely furniture pieces like this bright olive green velvet Macdonald sofa. Classic good lines and construction, done up in a showstopping way - bravo! Hickory Chair, 330 North Hamilton.
These super cute raffia-topped tables by Oomph are sprinkled throughout the Thibault showroom. Very compact yet packing a big style punch, they could fit in most anywhere and come in a range of perfect, poppy colors. By Oomph, shown at Thibault, Market Square, 3rd Floor.
Thibault put together a perfectly dressed bed with their tufted dark blue upholstered headboard, white and dove gray bedding and sunny yellow patterned drapery. Thibault, Market Square, 3rd Floor.
A showpiece to show off your treasures! A white, illuminated, glass-shelved Chinoiserie curio cabinet has a bit of a clean modern edge, despite its quirky, cool-grandma charm. Century, Market Square 5th Floor
A preppy but polished take on dressing up a twin bed at Century. Deep navy lined padded headboard with white welt and button nailhead trim, mixed with textural, patterned bedding. Century, Market Square 5th Floor
High Point goes vintage! Here is one half of a pair of 60s Palm Beach style armchairs, newly reupholstered in Dorothy Cummings fabric. Found at the Madcap Cottage antique and vintage booth in the Antique Center in Market Square
The Brady sofa from Rowe is a revisit of a 20th century design from their archives but it doesn't read as retro. The pale velvet upholstery and slim silhouette make it feel more timeless than throwback. Rowe, 1st floor, Showplace Bldg
Silkscreened color block prints from Natural Curiosities are a simple, beautiful way to add a range of hues to a room, perfect for building a grid-formatted gallery wall. Natural Curiosities, Interhall
This linen sofa is OTT in all good ways. Super long, super low, super comfy. And so many pillows, in a mix of sizes and shapes, which allows you to restructure and restyle for different uses and looks. This is a sofa style often seen in Europe - relaxed yet stylish. Van Thiel & Co., Showplace, 4th floor
California cool, rustic chic. Indoor/outdoor reclaimed wood and metal round cocktail table from brand new brand from LA, Wilcox. They'll be rolling out furniture, clothing, artwork AND music over the coming months - creativity in all forms. Wilcox - Interhall
High shine and organic shapes = a new take on glam. This super-sized big, beautiful gourd table lamp creates an instant impact and feels more classic than trendy, thanks to its nature inspired form. Arteriors IHFC #H320
Hooker's take on the home office. Light, bright, and super decorative. My favorite detail is the gold & cream wallpaper pattern used to line the back of the bookshelf and inside the drawers. Hooker IHFC # C1058
A graphic-driven interpretation of a perennial favorite Scalamandre upholstery fabric pattern on a table lamp, shown in a poppy orange/red/pink combo (also available in navy & white). The lucite base and boxy shade are fun, chic details. Part of a brand new line of new pieces (funiture, lighting, accessories) featuring Scalamandre patterns from Port 68 - a fresh, welcome take on now-classic interior style! Port 68, Interhall
This is a big, bold statement piece, reminiscent of the disco era, but feeling fashion-forward once again. It's generous size and simple lines, along with the ultra-low profile, make it the visual wow piece of any sitting area. Don't you love how the carpet pattern reflects on the sides? At Four Hands, 4th Floor, Showplace Bldg
Whimsical yet practical. Playful yet chic. A pair of furry stools that make a strong style statement while providing extra seating. The DwellStudio designer, Christiane Lemieux said they were inspired by the decor-famous Lalanne sheep! DwellStudio Precedent Showroom - 315 Fred Alexander Place
A simple, Parsons-style console gets an unexpected treatment. The hide-wrapped piece is definitely dramatic, a bit luxe yet also a bit rustic. The variations in color add to the statement-piece effect. It's a memorable look that could work with many different decor styles from Hollywood Glam to Cabin Chic. Bernhardt ICFC # D601
Totally on trend, perfectly sized cube pouts from Surya. The dip dye effect on the textural natural linen looks gorgeous and the combination of saturated color and natural fabric is a fresh, organic look. Would be a super useful small space seating solution while adding color and a dose of simple chic style to any room. Surya, Showplace 4100
Racing Striped Linen Daybed by CR Laine Furniture High Point Fall Market 2013
Color Blocked Linen Daybed by CR Laine. Perfect example of how to update a classic piece! Simple lines, beautiful fabrics and the unexpected twist of a pale blue color block "stripe". The cushion fits a twin size bedding, making this an easy small space guest solution. CR Laine 310 N. Hamilton Court, High Point
