I am still reliving all of the inspiration from High Point Market. In my last post, I touched on texture being a big player. Color and pattern are big right now but I still spotted an awful lot of black and white. I love black and white interiors. You can check out my Popular Pinterest Board Black and White Interiors for more black and white love.
Henredon (home to Thomasville, and Drexel as well) had plenty of black and white love to share. Loving the Courbin Etagere from the Acquisitions Collection.
Since the Bernhardt showroom showcased beautiful surfaces and textures, their rooms were mostly neutral and black and white. Loved this pretty console.
We saw a lot of attention to detail on both the fronts and backs of chairs and sofas. Why not? Who wants to look at a big blank piece of fabric? The back of Adriana Hoye’s chairs were as meticulously sculpted as the fronts.Rene Cazares had beautifully stitched detailing on the backs, Bernhardt had these sleek black iron chairs covered in an unexpected white hide, while Ralph Lauren’s black leather butterfly chairs (at E.J Victor) had interesting brass tacking. All proved it is all in the details.
Performance fabrics were everywhere. I have been using them almost exclusively on upholstery for the past few years. Crypton fabrics (new to me) were being used in many of the heavy hitter showrooms, EJ Victor (shown in the display below), Rowe, Rene Cazares and many more.
Although Ralph Lauren (at EJ Victor) is not afraid of color, he sure knows how to rock black and white.
Exquisite Rugs (My favorite new rug source) had plenty of rugs in every hue imaginable, but they also had some gorgeous offerings in black and white. We were so impressed by the company in general and the owner shown with the Moroccan rug upper right. The business is family owned and makes the most beautiful rugs I have seen anywhere.
Michael Dawkins Home, based in Miami had some great accesssories and accent pieces. His showroom was right up my alley. All white linen with only splashes of color.
Loved the combination of this modern little cocktail table from Century combined with the more traditional accessories and the faux zebra rug.
Another great vignette in the Century Showroom combining the more modern etagere with the more traditional velvet dining chairs. So pretty!
Modern History had this pretty table and chairs (wouldn’t they be pretty in a city apartment?)
There were a lot of pretty sideboards and consoles. This one from Rowe caught my eye. Loved the combination of finishes and the transitional appeal. Not too modern, but sleek lines, pretty finish and great hardware keep it current.
Kelly Wearstler really hit it out of the park with her collection for EJ Victor. Classy, Sassy with just enough edge.
I am a huge Sunbrella fan. My family room sofas are slipcovered in Sunbrella canvas, as are my chairs and loveseat in our master. But, did you know they do rugs? Here Mary Ann and I are with our friend Sherry from Design Indulgence and her friend Lori (in the sunbrella showroom) standing on yep you got it a Sunbrella rug!!
I will be back next couple weeks with my final High Point Post on Color. We are on baby watch here…any day….so things could change!!
