I'm Back from Market and I'm Full

I'm exhausted and energized at the same time.  Market was definitely worth it, but man I'm wiped!  Obviously, not tired enough as I couldn't wait to sit down and share some of my favorite finds with you.  I had a long list of items I wanted to find for clients, but I was also going to be inspired and I was.  The displays themselves were works of art, the products were to die for and I also had some great southern food!

I picked up two lines that I'm really excited about.  One is Caracole and their tag line is "high style, high value furnishings", which somewhat represents what I'm all about.  When I first arrived at their showroom I wasn't sure they were for me.  I was assigned a salesperson and escorted onto the sales floor.  This usually means they are either so exclusive (aka super expensive) or they only cater to the larger retailers.  I was wrong on both counts.  They couldn't have been nicer and they are designer friendly.  Oh, and affordable.  They didn't allow photography, but here are a few of my favorites that I pulled off their web site..

The second line I found is Canadel and they are a company out of Canada that sells high quality dining room furniture.  I specifically sought them out as they were recommended to me because of their ability to customize.  Again, I was pleasantly surprised at their selection and how designer friendly they were.  Here are some of my favorites...

This is a kitchen island and it's not even on their web site yet.  It comes in lots of different finishes and two sizes.  What a great option for someone who wants that wood top in their kitchen.

I still have so much more to share, but that's all I can get together today.  My client to-do list is a mile long!  I promise to do another post soon with details about my giveaway contest.
