Do you know Hable Construction?

High Point Market is all about seeing new products...
but it's also about meeting the talented designers who create these fabulous pieces.
Hable Construction for Hickory Chair
the dynamic sister team of Susan and Kate Hable, created a line of  luxury fabrics
for Hickory Chair that embodies their organic, made-by-hand aesthetic.
I was instantly drawn to their bold, graphic patterns
that were wrapped around comfy chairs, pillows, screens and even cabinets!
They are known for their all American-made craftsmanship, which is a big plus for me.
But what is also very interesting is that, even as they've grown through licensing with companies
like Garnet Hill, Neiman Marcus and Pottery Barn 
they continue to put their personal stamp on everything they do.
The company still uses traditional screen-printing methods to create their hand-drawn fabrics
in an old New England factory.

It was so fun to get a glimpse of their tools of the trade.
I took this photo of Susan Hable's desk in the showroom.

And talking with Susan, the creative genius behind the line,was a highlight!
She is responsible for all the fabric designs 
as well as the fabulous artwork scattered throughout the showroom.
Notice the concept board behind us?
Every design starts with the simplest thought and evolves into something truly magical...

I love this Hable vignette that was in the showroom,
especially the rug with its updated greek key design!

Obviously I'm attracted to the Hable "look"...
My jacket complemented Susan's artwork perfectly!
