Highlights from the Furniture Market

Tuesday, October 19, 2010
I kinda feel like I tackled the market at hyper-speed this weekend. While I love the experience of going to market, I also know that most everything I find (and fall in love with) won't be in production for months. The clients I am currently working with need their homes finished asap, so ordering from market wasn't for them. Nope, this trip was going to be a little guilty pleasure for me--seeing the newest trends, being surrounded by people who share the same passion and getting fabulously inspired.  

Turning a corner, I spotted it out of the corner of my eye--the fabulous Osborne and Little It's one thing to covet online or in a's quite another to see it in person!! To touch the flocking of the sihouettes {oh you better believe I did} -- it's so good! I know the wallpaper isn't new (May '08) but, I am still so smitten with it. I love the lime green with the sultry gray and then the way the rich kelly green of the ferns plays against it. Really, really good.   



This is the brand new line from the UK's Julian Chichester--Mr. Brown.

I super loved that chandelier--zinc on top, mirrored inside, and aged brass on bottom -- all suspended from brass rails.   

I already know where I want to use this lamp.

Another new find was Halo Living.

This is a new line by Esquire Home {as in Esquire Magazine}. They debuted at the April market .Their press release explains their look as  "a lifestyle focused on luxury, sophistication and comfort - with a unique furniture collection that every man will want to own." They did a great job of merchandising this feeling. It felt like a super cool mens club -- really dark and masculine. Sort of like Anthropologie meets Abercrombie {minus the cologne wafting from the ceiling}  

 The opposite wall was decorated with tennis rackets {check out the grass on top of the wall!} 
The upholstery featured lots of neutrals, tweeds, and leathers. This combined with the reclaimed woods, the metals and the crystal dripping chandeliers, created this great juxtaposition of interesting textures and strength of character.

More chrome--on the boxes and the tables.

This wall featured small antique wooden chairs holding red hat boxes.

I absolutely loved this swivel chair with the combination leather, metal and rivets. As a matter of fact, this chair appeared in a lot of showrooms. My prediction is we will see variations of this chair showing up in several catalogs and stores in the next few months. {FYI- unfortunately, it is super pricey so we will have to wait until it makes it appearance on Copy Cat Chic! }

I will show you a few more showrooms tomorrow.
