The Welcome Reception will be part of the two day Camp, held at AmericasMart, and will include a showroom tour day at Market and four special guest speakers led by local and national industry experts in niche fields.  We are thrilled to have Currey & Company be our host sponsor for Design Camp Atlanta. Their beautiful showroom at AmericasMart is the perfect venue for our Campers– Plus they know how to throw a party!

If you’re like us, you’re probably familiar with Currey’s jaw-dropping lighting fixtures. Check out some of our favorite table lamps from their Winterthur Collection.

And we certainly have an affinity for  Currey’s antiqued chandelier’s. The corkscrew cables and Spanish gilt finishes give the Montmorenci a distinctly European feel — perfect for a dinning nook in a shabby-chic country kitchen or an old rustic study.

The talent of their designers transcends mere light fixtures — Their lamps and chandeliers, though beautiful on their own, become something even more striking when paired with Currey and Co’s accent furniture.

Design Camp at High Point…and Beyond!

We had time to tour ourselves around at this year’s Fall High Point Market, discovering new lines we love and revisiting some of our old favorites. But while we were not running around market, shopping our favorite lines, we were actually working (we promise!).

Our first order of business was a fabulous breakfast hosted by Lexington Home Brands, held in their amazing showroom, which is always a treat in and of it’s self. The turn out was phenomenal! We packed the house with 120 interior designers and had the humbling pleasure of sharing some personal anecdotes, discussing how the community Design Camp creates has been pivotal in helping designers grow their businesses.

We also had some fabulous giveaways! It was a highlight of our day to be able to award designer Genevive Roberts from Interiors by Genevive, an expenses-paid trip to the next Design Camp, Las Vegas, compliments of Lexington Home Brands. And check out these custom made notebooks Lexington made for our Campers using the same fabric as their Carrera line.

At Design Camp High Point, there were over 200 Interior Designers in attendance, packed tightly adjacent to the Jaipur Rugs showroom. We discussed the advantages and transparency of charging a flat fee, learned what it takes to earn the title “Best of Houzz,” and had an inspiring discussion with Mary McDonald of Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Decorators. Her new fabric and furniture lines take design to the next level. Her bold, modern-classical aesthetic will surely become an iconic look. We anticipate the day we hear our own clients ask for the “Mary McDonald look” in their homes.

Jaipur has been incredible to us and to our campers. All of our Design Campers walked away from camp, not only with hand-scribbled notes and tips from the trade, and an overflow of knowledge to process, but also a bunch of swag – Physical Mementos from Parlore, Noir, Caracole, Leftbank, and Tile Bar: reminders of the fabulous community we create and products we discover together at camp.

We’re still in awe about how much our Design Camp community has grown over the past couple years and can’t wait to spoil our Design Campers with more business and design advice from design icons at Design Camp Atlanta during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market this January! Suzanne Kasler will be headlining Design Camp Atlanta, and you can bet we’ll be sitting there, pens in hand, ready to take notes along side all of our campers.

K & L Do High Point Market

A little birdie told us this year’s market set record sales for a number of our favorite vendors, and we can definitely see why! We were overwhelmed by market, sprawling 11.5 million square feet of show-space, jam-packed with the absolute most gorgeous furnishings, textiles, accessories, and talented interior designers.

As an old favorite of ours, it was no surprise that Global Views’ showroom was a super stunner! This Global Views acrylic chair was style spotted originally by Gary Inman, but it seemed like everyone at market quickly followed suit, snapping pictures of this exquisite piece for social media. It was certainly an Instagram favorite, and certainly one of ours! You can keep up with them on Instagram here: http://instagram.com/globalviews

Jaipur Rugs has, yet again, taken design to the next level: conducting an awesome exercise, incorporating a social media giveaway into their showroom shopping. By tagging photos of your favorite products in their showroom #designwithmeaning, you were entered to win products from their new lines and learned more about their amazing organization, which we always encourage everyone to do.

We also discovered some new gems! (New to us, at least!) Once we sat down in new Natuzzi recliners, we sat for quite a while. We probably missed some other amazing showrooms in the process, but we were Revived and Natuzzi’s catchphrase preached truth to us: Love Doing Nothing. So do nothing, we did! Check out the whole new line of Revive recliners here: http://instagram.com/natuzzirevive

Besides the fabulous recliners and accent chairs, some of the most stunning pieces at market this year were light fixtures. Luna Bella and Worlds Away had some pieces that really make you double take. Our eyes were glued to the ceiling of the Luna Bella showroom – Their new installation was transfixing.

Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 3.43.51 PM

Worlds Away’s chandelier game was also on point this year! Worlds Away has a way of making heavy gold fixtures feel intimate and delicate. Go Gold with World’s Away and keep up with them on Instagram: http://instagram.com/worldsaway1

We were able to mine all of market’s hidden gems to find the perfect media consoles and accent table for any taste at Bungalow5 and Gabby Home. Gabby Home was full of fun, funky, boho chic modern pieces, certain to be the center of a conversation. Bungalow5 had the most perfect, tasteful, classical, understated pieces on which to display their fabulous accessories! Bungalow5 was also a popular showroom for style spotting – The table pictured below was originally style-spotted by Style Spotter Jeanne Chung who runs this fabulous blog: http://www.cozystylishchic.com/

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.

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!
