High Point Wrap Up

Wow, where does the time go? We’ve been so busy here at Vintage Scout, that it’s been almost a month already since we attended the High Point Furniture Market. Sarah and I came back inspired by all the wonderful new things we saw. Let me share a little of it with you.Bowl

Brass is back whether you want to believe it or not. I love it! It’s not the tacky brass you’re remembering from cheap hardware and light fixtures. Lee_Dining_Chair

The details on this Lee dining chair are fabulous.Lee-Stools

And these fur & lucite stools? GAH!!!!!!Loop-Stools

I fell in love with Mitchell Black and their modern way of displaying art. Stanley

Stanley’s new collection inspired by midcentury modern is fantastic! You’ll see brass again here in the desk base.Vanguard-Stool

It was our first time visiting the Vanguard showroom and we were not disappointed.Wearstler-Vis-Comf

If you follow along on Instagram you saw we met Kelly Wearstler. She was at market promoting her new line of lighting and it is amazing! It will be available next summer, and yes, you see brass again.

There was so much more! I always feel like attending market is so important as a designer. It keeps our interiors fresh and evolving. It is motivating and inspiring. It is so important to know what resources are available as each client’s style and taste is different. If you’d like to update your space with the newest and coolest, give us a call- we’d love in inject your home with some of what we saw and experienced.

Think Pink

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since High Point market and I haven’t even filled you in on what I took away as incoming trends. The consensus among designers was that it was a really good market. I think the reason is that there was color, color, and more color! After several seasons of “gray being the new black”, I know I for one, am excited to see some bright yet approachable colors in the next few seasons. The color that really stood out for me in all elements was PINK.

Pillows, walls, rugs, lighting, accessories, artwork and more!

So what are your thoughts on pink? Would you go for a pink wall covering in a room other than a girls’ room? I think pink can be very sophisticated and flattering when the right tone is used and in the right context. If you think you want to go pink, give me a call. I’d love to find the right place for it in your home.

Monday’s Furniture Crush

For this Monday’s Furniture Crush we knew we wanted to share a High Point find, but it was tough narrowing it down; we saw so many wonderful things. So we decided to bring you some of the unique things we found that we haven’t seen floating around out there amongst all the market photos.

If you must have a foosball table in your home, why not make it a piece of furniture? We had to practically fight off the guys playing it to get a photo.

Screen printed upholstered headboard, trimmed out with furniture webbing. Genius and gorgeous! This company also had huge floor pillows; all offered with a variety of images.20121022-114623.jpg

Highlights of Scout Day Two At Market

Day two here in High Point was filled with just as many if not more amazing finds as day one.
We started our morning at perpetual favorite, Design Legacy. Always inspiring. Always clever.

Next, we thought we’d check out a new upholstery line and really happy we did. CR Laine has so many wonderful fabrics paired with great frames. These are just a few that we loved.

We thought this vendor had a great color story.

How did the HPMkt Style Spotters miss these? Infatuated with these acrylic pieces from Four Hands. Not the least expensive things we saw, but wow, what a statement.

And then you know, the Scouts are always gonna have a little bit of fun. So after an awesome dinner at Lee Industries, we made our way to the main event back over in the middle of market. 80’s heartthrob Rick Springfield! Still looking and sounding good after all these years.

Gotta run, get ready and head out the hotel door for day three. Today we’ll spend the entire day inside the “big building”. Lots of vendors to see, so as always, follow us on Twitter and Instagram to see our favorite pics of the market.

High Point- Day One Wrap Up

We arrived in High Point, NC yesterday for the International Furniture Market and hit the ground running.

We stopped by our favorite lighting showroom to see what’s new and look at a few details for some clients.

We’re not sure why, but we were both lovin’ this print of a target.

Your Scouts are always on the lookout for what’s cool and new out there. We found Chris Bruning and Groovy Stuff. These peace signs are made from old barrels. Loved his line!

Of course we had to get ourselves a little treat. A Glenda Gies handbag should do the trick.
