Love Doing Nothing at Natuzzi

Do you love doing nothing? That’s exactly what we want to do after spending seven long days at High Point Market. But it’s also the tag line for a new product we literally could not get our butts out of. #lovedoingnothing

revive

Who knew a chair could detect your body movements and move with you. The Re-Vive chair from Natuzzi was definitely at the top of our list for it’s modern design, functionality and of course, COMFORT!

First Class at Lexington

We just wrapped up our five-star Design Camp Breakfast at the grand Lexington Showroom and we couldn’t help ourselves, so we toured the three level facility and found some fantastic new products that we know our Campers will LOVE!

We have to start off with the new Carrera line since Lexington was so nice to make these stylish notebooks for our Campers with the fabric used for this line. Now we can sit in their fabulous seating with our matching notebook! Gray and black are killing it this season and the Carrera line did an amazing job mixing metallic gray finishes to their sleek and contemporary Design.

Of course we were also drawn to Sligh’s new Bel Aire line. Lori and Kelli have made themselves quite comfortable! It’s all glamour and sophistication translated to their home office and media room designs.

Lets move outside! We continue to see exterior spaces resemble interior spaces and Lexington’s partnership with Tommy Bahama is no exception. The detail on the seating of this living room set is something you would see in your living room. Just another way vendors like Lexington are making your home bigger by maximizing your outdoor space.

Parlore – Interior Design Streamlined

We are constantly trying to find the latest and greatest for our Campers so we were thrilled when we partnered with this phenomenal new company, Parlore.

Inside Jaipur

We are not only lucky to have wonderful sponsors like Jaipur host our Design Camp at High Point Market, but we are also ridiculously in love with what they have coming out for all of us this fall. Jaipur, who recently made the top 500 from Inc Magazine, has a lot going on with their new introductions and charity foundation.

Let’s start with some designs we are loving this fall. As the leaves begin to turn orange, or for us Southern Californians who are pretending the seasons have changed, you can’t help but navigate toward some warmer hues. This rug under their blue collection perfectly brings out the yellow and brown accessories in the room.  Or you can also try this Peacock blue rug from the same collection that provides the same fall feel by using different colors.

We are also excited about the new tribal inspired rugs that are sure to be a hit at High Point Market. You can use it for your indoor or outdoor spaces, or both!

The other thing we love about Jaipur is their kind heart. Mr. Chaudhary founded the Jaipur Rugs Foundation that is helping over 40,000 artisans build their capacity to earn higher wages.  It is such a powerful association and we applaud Jaipur for all the work they have done for the people in India.

We can’t wait to see everything that Jaipur has in store for us at High Point Market and beyond excited to have our Design Camp in their showroom. It’s a win, win!  See you there!
