Selamat Regent Arm Chair

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.

We’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!  image001Happy Valentine’s Day! <3


Noir Neo Showroom

It’s no secret that the Noir CFC showroom is always a stunner at market. We LOVE their bold punk-rock pieces. If you’re not already familiar with the LA-based furniture manufacturer, imagine Mick Jagger (in his prime) sprawled across a black leather couch backstage at the Grammy’s — That’s the Noir aesthetic. You can take a digital tour of the High Point showroom here.

But when it comes to the practical use of Noir furniture in residential interior designs, we are always shocked to see just how bright noir can be!

Noir has been featured in all of our favorite design magazines from Traditional Home to Coastal Living, and its almost always in a big bright country kitchen, or boho chic beach house. The versatility of this furniture continues to surprise us!

Keep up with @NoirFurniture on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see all the creative  ways designers use Noir in their projects!




High Point Lexington Home Kelli Ellis Lori Dennis

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.
