We’re Feelin’ Twenty Six!

theTwentySIX+Logo+jpegWe’ve recently discovered a new gem, we are dying to share with you: From the luxury lifestyle mastermind behind weekly twitter chat #DesignLux and gorgeous editorial content featured in Traditional Home, Dwell On Design, Riviera, comes The Twenty Six, DCoop Media’s new journal for luxury design

 

Winter+2014

The Twenty Six, holds true to its inspiring positioning statement. Their goal is: to ‘give readers more than just a pretty picture with a vanilla blub, and expand their thinking beyond the normal realm of luxury.’

With just two issues out, they’ve already accomplished that goal and more by engaging readers, by making us feel connected to the interior design community in a way that’s seldom experienced reading editorial magazines.

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 10.58.52 AM

 

 

Their next issue comes out this December and we cannot wait! We’re feeling inspired: We’re feeling twenty six.

You can check out the first two issues here and keep up with #DesignLux on Twitter Here @DesignLuxChat, the Twitter Chat happens every Thursday at 1PM/4pm (EST)

Currey & Co. Knows How to Party!

Who’s ready to party at Design Camp?! Currey & Company sure is! They’ll be hosting Design Camp’s Welcome Reception & Cocktail Party on January 10, 2015 in their showroom, B1 14-F 10 during Design Camp Atlanta! Which you can register for here!

NewBlue-541-2014

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!

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 3.37.41 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 3.42.50 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 3.38.05 PM

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.

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 3.38.16 PM Their new cocktail tables are delicate, detailed pieces. They debuted over a dozen new occasional tables just last month. Explore for yourself here!

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.

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/
