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.
