MARVELOUS MARKET MADNESS

I've certainly been missing in action on my blog for the past week
but definitely not "Missing the Action"

Last week was my annual trip to High Point Market and it was non-stop adrenaline
Currey showroom
My charge? 
To seek out the newest trends and returning favorites.
Both give me an idea of what manufacturers think are
winning bets for the coming year. 
Design is not static - and this process keeps me fresh and current.

Pearson 165 Ottoman
This market had so much variety but one common thread was
THE COLOR BLUE
in all shades from pale aqua to peacock!
I love this curvy bench from Pearson with it's tie-dyed 60's vibe.

Bernhardt aqua vignette
There's a certain quality of elegance to these shades of aqua.
They're both exciting and soothing...
Maybe that's the intent?  Home is a place that should nurture both.

Hooker Regatta Blue Bombe
This updated Louis XV chest from Hooker is so "Now"
Painted in MONACO BLUE, one of Pantone's top color picks for Spring 2013,
 it's a standout!

Arteriors vignette
And the accessory lines followed suit.  
Blue was the new AND the old as seen in everything from contemporary art glass lamps...
Chelsea House vignette
 ...to classic blue and white porcelains.

So much more to share with you so check in later this week for my next Market post!
