Holidays Are Coming


It is hard to believe the holidays are upon us. The summer and fall flew by. We even experienced our first snow fall.

Our last blogs shared our fun time at the High Point furniture market. We posted some of the special items and new exciting concepts.

Happily that generated a lovely dining room for one of my favorite clients. An amazing meld of their loved traditional look with an exciting, edgy, painted glass sideboard, Louis XVI chairs, and a wonderful English regency table that can sit fourteen.

We also ordered some fabulous pieces for our floor. Here at our new store we have beautiful floor samples available to be delivered before the holidays as well as furniture and accessories to give your home a new and exciting look. Come in and browse to view some great gift ideas!

Happy Thanksgiving to all and enjoy food, family, and friends.


Excitement In High Point


The trip to the furniture show in High Point, North Carolina was inspiring.
The array of new products this year is the best I’ve seen in a long time. Hand painting on glass for special furniture pieces, crystals embedded in glass for wall decor, and a whole collection of simple, lovely pieces available in all the Benjamin Moore paint colors were just a sprinkle of the exciting selections. A new upholstery line I have aquired was even more comfortable than I imagined. Another new company we will be selling will enable me to sell stylish furniture for ages ranging from infant to teen, in many finishes and styles.
It wasn’t all work though. A great part of the show was the endless supply of food and drink, many times accompanied by live music; all fun and fulfilling.
Combined, it all generated an uplifting feeling and renewed enthusiasm for the world of design.
Check out all the new pictures on my website and Facebook page. Only a small part of everything that was new and inspiring.
