FRIDAYfinds! - Virtual Market

The race is about to begin!
High Point Spring Market officially opens this Saturday
and I'm wishing I was on my way
But...


I HAVE MY OWN RACE TO WIN
right here in Derby City!
via downthestretchs.wordpress.com
This is the month leading up to
"the most famous 2 minutes in sports"
The Kentucky Derby is always held on the first Saturday in May 
and I'm racing to get my client's homes ready for it.
Guests, parties, dinners - 
Everybody wants their home to look its best this time of year.
So it's a mad dash for me to make sure everything arrives on time and looks fabulous!

Unfortunately,this flurry of activity keeps me from attending Spring Market every year.
But never fear!

Like my friend, Toby Fairley said in her blog yesterday,
Tobi Fairley
"Anyone can "go to market" from the comfort of their home"

She's referring to all the web sites that enable designers to see what's new and exciting
without buying a plane ticket!

And I'm definitely taking advantage of the technology.
So here are a few of my TOP MARKET PICKS from my in-box this week...
Alexander Julian British Lacquer Bed for Jonathan Charles
This is to die-for!  Alexander Julian says his design for this bed was
 "inspired by my grey flannel blazer from 1976"
The best part?  The customization!  The lacquered panels come in lots of cool colors
and the aluminum frame is available in either gold or silver.

"MY TRENDING TIP:  CUSTOMIZATION IS COMING ON STRONG!
IT'S ONE MORE WAY TO PERSONALIZE YOUR HOME
AND CREATE YOUR "OWN" UNIQUE STYLE."



Mirror Image Home Light Horn framed mirror
Is this not gorgeous?  I'm in love with the pairing
of a Chinoiserie-inspired shape reinterpreted in horn.
Like the bed, you're not tied to this combo.
This mirror can be finished in wood, iron or leather as well!


Pearson 215 ottoman
Talk about customization! A designer's dream, this cocktail ottoman
can be personalized from head to toe!
With infinite fabric choices, you can also specify the type of nail heads
as well as the finish on the feet.

I'm wishing all my designer friends a fun and fruitful Spring Market!

As for me, it's
"ONWARD TO THE FINISH LINE!"



"Embrace the joys of good design!"
