High Point Market

Great Company...Funny Name!

I picked up a few new lines while at High Point Furniture Market and I'm excited to share another one with you today.  I know most designers don't like to reveal their "sources", but I don't mind talking about the ones who deserve a little love.  Tritter Feefer was a furniture company recommended to me by other designers I know, so they were on my short list of vendors to visit.

They are a small, family owned company in LaGrange, Georgia (which is only about 200 miles from Tallahassee) and their items are made in the USA.  Not only that, but they offer tons of great finishes and everything can be customized.  A designers dream!  I can't wait to use them on my next project...

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.

This Designer is Going to Market...

There is a special place in North Carolina where interior designers gather to feast their eyes on the latest trends in the industry and find those special vendors who have that perfect piece for their client.  It's called High Point Market and I AM GOING!  I've been before, but it's been 15 years, so I'm a little excited to say the least.  I can't wait to learn from the best in the industry (by attending the seminars) and see the most beautiful pieces home design manufacturers have to offer.

Every one of those blue buildings has something great to see and those colored lines are the shuttles.  I only have two days there, so I have a lot to figure out!

I plan to share the "love" with all my readers, as well as those who follow me on Instagram and Facebook.  I've also got some great ideas for a contest to give away one of my favorite things I find at market, so stay tuned for details.

But first, I have to get through my own HELL WEEK at The One Week Boutique where I'm a partner.  Eight full days of hard work!  I wonder if they rent scooters at High Point?!?
