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!

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.
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/
