favorite finds

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.
