We are so excited to have returned from a very productive and successful buying trip at the Atlanta market – place for perfect present ideas for the family – Our amazing new products range from boutique upholstery to exotic tabletop items that will start to arrive in store within the next two weeks! The market was filled with the most wonderful artisan hand crafted leather trays, shagreen boxes, and wrapped picture frames. We continued our infatuation with exotic natural textures like shagreen and embossed leather. We also discovered a fabulous vendor that creates the most exquisite and detailed shell accessories – We fell in love with their line of nautilus shell gravy boats and silver wrapped nautilus shell napkin holders.
The highlight of our market was an intimate meet and greet with Kathryn Ireland of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorator. Kathryn was even more charming and hysterical in person and we appreciated her unique perspective and inspiring words. Our trip was further highlighted when we unexpectedly ran into our favorite designer Barclay Butera at the debut of his bedding collection for Eastern Accents. We spent quite a while chatting with Barclay about his upcoming book and the reintroduction of his coveted furniture collection.
We are excited about his new ventures and are looking forward to great things.
We also found amazing new start up boutique vendors that are producing the most incredible bone, shell and horn inlaid pieces. We fell in love with the aesthetics of this sophisticated little chest. It comes is various finishes and may different sizes from entry tables to a more modest accent table.
We saw a continued trend in bleached woods from gray ash tones to a much warmer mid tone with a white washed overlay. These beautiful wood tones would look amazing with our adored Mullican Oak Latte wood floor.
Needless to say the Atlanta market was a huge success and we are so excited to be bringing in amazing new products to share with our clients. Enjoy!
