Designer’s Lounge! – You’re Invited!

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 8.38.27 AMNatuzzi, our comfiest cohorts, have been making international design headlines a lot lately: expanding their Vegas showroom, and opening a new showroom in Budapest. We’ve had such an incredible time partying with Natuzzi at past Design Camps and are so excited to have the opportunity to relax and revive ourselves in their NYC Design Studio during #DesignCampNY at the AD Home Show and we’re inviting you to join!


Their New York flagship showroom on Madison Ave. celebrated its grand opening last May and is yet another indicator of the Natuzzi initiative to accommodate designers – One of the many things we love about Natuzzi is their exclusive trade program. This is a company that loves working with designers and understands designers’ fundamental needs.

What more can you ask for? (Cocktails, maybe? – Oh, right! They have those too!)



Natuzzi will be hosting our #DesignCampNY cocktail party on Wednesday, March 18! This will be an awesome opportunity for designers to mix and mingle with New York furniture and design industry elite. Register online now before space fills up and continue to follow us on social media to insure you’re up to date on all the latest trade trends and news!

The Color of Love!

With Valentines Day just around the corner, we are feeling extra inspired by the new Pantone Color of the Year (Marsala!) and other eye-popping shades of red. We’ve perused the trades to find our favorite Valentine-Inspired products for the home because what better way to add a little romance in your house?!

A great way to integrate reds with subtlety is with a popping accent chair– like one of these pieces below. The Selamat Regent Arm Chair is perfect for an upscale shabby-chic San Fran flat, while Phillips Co’s seatbelt chair is a little more rock and roll.









Fermob’s bistro chairs are a classic favorite of ours and are perfect for romantic outdoor dinning. And Bungalow5 always surprises us with Eastern-inspired shapes and patterns– their feminine hourglass side table is no exception. It comes in a variety of finishes, but this firey red is pretty irresistible!

Lamps Plus is really tugging at our heart strings with this Chianti Glass Chandelier. We love a good statement light fixture, especially one that draws the eye upward! These adorable swivel chairs from Sunpan Modern Home are incredibly versatile: We’ve seen them used as both occasional chairs and around a dinning table.

How about snuggling with your honey on a sexy Natuzzi couch. It’s not only stylish and bold, but extremely comfortable! LOVE the lavish goose feather cushions and layer of memory foam. Leftbank Art has us in the mood for love with a cute little number, appropriately titled: Punch Drunk Love.

image001We’re anxious to know what you think of the Pantone color of the year–Is it a good year-round color or merely occasional? Tell us what you think!

And it wouldn’t be Valentine’s day without a little love poem so here’s one of our favorites to put you in the mood!  Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

Spreading the News on NY NOW!

IMG_7160Of all the markets, trade shows, and conventions, New York Now has perhaps the largest variety of gifts, accessories, and house ware products. From bedazzled dog collars to stunning chandeliers, we covered it all and spotted some emerging trends.


IMG_7129There were some super stylish beds at the Javits Center–We’ve highlighted the best. Made Goods, an old favorite of ours, known for their accessories and accent pieces premiered some beautiful new bed frames at NY Now and they do not disappoint!


IMG_7124We also discovered a newbie, Pom Pom at Home whose designs are delicate and transitional. We had a chance to chat with the designer, who posed with her favorite new pieces for us! She described their designs as “lived in” and “Casual,” and that’s exactly it—We felt right at home, ready to curl up and take a nap!

Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 3.18.09 PMA general market favorite was John Robshaw—Now if only we all had the Robshaw merchandisers to make our beds every morning!

A trend that stood out to us was all of the rustic, shabby-chic kitchenware. We couldn’t help but begin designing an imaginary country kitchen, pulling inspiration from Roost and Europe 2 You.

Euro2 Roost








For a more polished, formal living room we drew inspiration from the eclectic designs of Zodax accessories and Bungalow 5 furniture.

The furniture designers of Worlds Away and Emporium Home sat down with us to discuss their favorite new pieces—Both of them chose chairs. From the designer to your home – the comfy and elegant accent chair is in (was it ever out?)!

When it came to finding our favorite lighting, the competition was fierce—a number of vendors premiered some beautiful new lighting collections but we were finally able to narrow our favorites:


MichaelAram-DesignerFavRo Sham Beaux’s incredible wall sconces and chandeliers made it hard to choose just one! Theses beaded beauties come in a variety of colors and sizes and Ro’ is super designer-friendly!



Dynamic designer Michael Aram’s new pendants make a huge statement! These lights belong in the foyer of every beautiful home. Aram is global, eclectic designer and it certainly shows!



It was Noir Furniture that was the celebrity fav at NY Now. HGTV Design Star winner, Danielle Colding stopped by and shared some of her Noir favorites with us-namely some of their gorgeous new seating and hand sculpture accessories.


And XOXO, Gossip Girl was in the house – Friends from Westbrock Home snapped this pap-style shot of Blake Lively shopping Noir–She loved the Rain Chandelier and the Berninni Desk!

It Happened In Vegas…

Then camp concluded with a cocktail party at the Natuzzi showroom where campers had a chance to mix and mingle with fellow designers and vendors from around market.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.34.15 PMDirectly following camp was Kelli’s off-the-hook launch party for her new Tile Bar tile line– a huge hit. KBIS was full of beautiful creative innovations in the kitchen and bath design industry.

That’s a Wrap on Atlanta!

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 6.03.00 PM

Another Design Camp comes to an end — Design Camp, Atlanta was one of our largest and most inspiring camps yet! We packed the theater at Americas Mart full of 600+ talented interior designers, eager to learn and impact the entire interior design community. These designers had the opportunity to learn from industry tastemakers Suzanne Kasler and Peter Zakas of Z Space Design, whose designs reach far beyond their distinctive aesthetics, stimulating creativity in everyone they come in contact with. Designers also benefitted from the always hilarious, resident Design Camp Deadhead and wine connoisseur, Adam Japko, whose expertise in online marketing is transferrable to just about every profession.

Click on the Thumbnails below to enlarge the images from #DesignCampATL!

Camp began with a social media scavenger hunt through America Mart’s premier showrooms. Campers mugged for the camera in Natuzzi’s leather recliners, which multiple campers deemed ‘the most comfortable chair ever.’ They threw imaginary tea parties in Fermob’s showroom and fell in love with Fermob’s Kintbury collection — They’re the absolute cutest outdoor chairs we’ve ever seen, perfect for a garden party! Campers gawked at gorgeous new collections in Jaipur Rugs, Currey and Company, Emporium Home, Noir, Europe2You, Leftbank Art, and more! We spotted some of our market favorites in Noir, Worlds Away, Fermob, and Jaipur.

Suzanne Kasler mingled with campers at her exclusive Design Camp booksigning in the Jaipur Rugs showroom. Her book Timeless Style features glossy, full-page images that truly transport you into her elegant imagination.

And what would camp be without a couple of cocktails? In typical Design Camp fashion, camp concluded with a cocktail party– We all knew Currey and Company knew how to design top-notch lighting and furniture, but did you know they also know how to go all-out hosting a party?

So here’s some bad news and good news: The bad news is; Atlanta Camp is over. The good news is; Vegas Camp is coming up on January 19th and there is still time to register online!  Stay tuned for more updates about Vegas and other future Camp endeavors. We have LOTS in the works that we cannot wait to share with you guys!
