Welcome

W

e all felt a tremendous excitement when producing this issue -- the change of season, anticipation of HPMKT, and imminent political change in our Country, has us going crazy giddy and on the edge of our seats. We’re also feeling stylishly patriotic, reflecting on America’s rich and diverse, innovative and adapted decorative arts heritage and the faithful and modern interpretations that continue to appear. This issue of FOCUS scratches the surface of that abundance. When I think about all of the good energy that went into producing this magazine, work ethic comes to mind. A big hug of gratitude goes out to the incredible designers who put their day jobs aside to help shape this issue through words and design. Additional thanks as well to our amazing brands who are quick to update their Steelyard catalogs, and a high-five to the small but mighty Steelyard editorial team who created this issue with heart and very little sleep, and also shared a piece of their personal American history. Whether you read FOCUS cover to cover or peruse for the pretty pictures, I hope it has provided insight, inspiration, and solid new resources. What’s pictured inside here is just a smidge of what’s on Steelyard. I hope you’ll join and see for yourself. Or come to the Designer’s Lounge at Market and one of us Steelworkers will give you a personal tour.

SHOW AND TELL: Steelyard is a melting pot of sorts -- not only because of our tasty mix of brands, but because of our own personal diversity... where we started, the paths we took, and what we picked up and learned along the way. Here, we share a bit of that with you and please share back with us at editorial@steelyardaccess.com. 2


Sandy Hughes, Editor Our Meissen “Blue Onion” gravy boat was part of the china service for a private railroad car at the turn of the 19th century (the G-6 of its day!). The car’s owner was Lyman J. Gage, who served as Secretary of the Treasury to Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt. This piece came to me through my great-grandfather Edward Alden Gay, Mayflower descendant and Gage’s own secretary at the time. Whether he ever dined with his employer in the luxury Pullman is anyone’s guess, but this piece’s tangential brush with Presidential Provenance makes it feel like a true American heirloom to me!

Stacey Tiveron, Founder During WWII, my Oma left Germany and took her two children to Canada, and years later to the USA. Though she left her homeland, the sounds came with her As Oma wore a mini Horner harmonica around her neck and broke out into song quite frequently. The old country remained a part of our lives through music. When I hear a German standard, Polka or beautiful sonata, I smile in remembrance of her and all she did to give her family a better life.

Vera Djonovic, Style Editor As a young girl growing up in Montenegro, I only read about life in America; and on bold occasion, dreamt about being an American.Nothing would keep me away. When I finally came to the feet of Lady Liberty, it was like standing on top of the world. When I took the oath of citizenship, emotion radiated through my body and with my raised hand, I could not help but draw a parallel to the Statue of Liberty. At that moment, I felt welcomed. I felt limitless. I felt American!

Jane Dagmi, Editorial Director This watercolor rendering of the Green Room of the White House is a relic from the once-venerable department store, B. Altman & Co.. I was overjoyed to finally land my first visual merchandising job there only to soon discover that the store was in financial crisis. The interior design department at Altman’s had always been highly revered, and when I arrived it was already closed, doors locked, treasures still inside. Over the course of a lengthy and seemingly disrespectful liquidation sale, my boss approved the merchandising team to “take out samples”, allowing us to salvage mementos that might otherwise have landed in a dumpster. This painting was one of my rescues.

Wing Chairs T

he Wing Chair, or fully-upholstered Easy Chair as it was called in England, was introduced to American interiors in the late 17th century and has been a ubiquitous furniture icon ever since. Its basic design and function evolved from the ratcheted sleeper chair that had a reclining back and winged sides which safeguarded from drafts. Recognized for its shapely silhouette, air of formality, and ability to wear a fabric with extreme grace, the wing chair offers a cozy feeling of sheltered comfort bar none.

very October 1st, ASID chapters welcome new leadership as president-elects step into their presidential role for a one year term. It is a lot of work as past Heads of States will attest, but an honor and a privilege to serve the industry. Most of the five women we spoke with started in ASID as design students. Interior design was a second career for Helen, Bette and Adriel, an early designated path for others. As members, they all took on various leadership roles: Megan and Bette were Communications Directors, and Adriel is actually in for her second presidency, though her first term was 8 years ago. Some of these women preside over one state or county, but Helen and Kim oversee regions. These five female each have a unique story, yet what they share in common is that they are all working designers who love what they do, and are pumped for the opportunity to propel the mission of the ASID -- to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives -- in creative and relevant ways. Learn more about what these qualified women are planning, the state of design in their chapters, who inspires them, and why they design.

Collab

Why

Design?

Emphasize the impact of design on the human experience, increase communication and ideasharing in media and between chapters, advocate for more diversity and inclusion.

Green, from kiwi to dark grayed-green, and the Scandinavian population loves its blues. Updated neutrals with pops of saturated color and MidCentury are still trending.

Barbara Barry: I love how she uses nature and the beautiful elements that lie within it for her designs and how she uses watercolor to move through the process.

A bit of a late bloomer. Business degree led to marketing, but knew in my heart I wasn’t feeding my artistic and creative sides. Returned to school and never looked back.

Increase member engagement and public outreach through content, events, and social media.

Orange Country is finally moving away from the Tuscan style and embracing contemporary.

Any designer who is at the top of their game; it’s not about style but process.

Had an educational benefit from the VA after my husband passed away, and I needed a new career. Design met all criteria -and I was a natural at it.

To cut through the clutter, and use a clear, concise, thoughtful and enticing voice to engage members and stimulate non-members.

DC has a conservative image, but I believe it’s one of the most dynamic American cities in our industry. We embrace diversity and are seeing more thoughtful approaches to design that focus on the experience between human and built environment.

Frances Adler Elkins: an avant garde designer who blended periods and styles, and respected architectural principles instilled in her by her brother David Adler.

I’m able to express my creative and artful side and exercise my logical and analytical skills through the technical and administrative tasks we encounter everyday.

To bring the 3 states, 8 design communities and 600 members closer together through engagement and in-person visits.

Putting more focus on healthy environments and work-life balance with nature, sustainability, multiuse furniture and space. Designers are paying more attention to how environment impacts well-being.

Frank Lloyd Wright: His philosophy of organic architecture and designing environments in harmony with humanity and nature were so progressive.

Wanted to help others by shaping the experience of interior environments where humans spend 90% of their time! I also strive to create healing environments for patients, families, and staff.

Utilize technology -- enhanced digital newsletter and social media - to bridge the distance between the 5-state chapter and to improve outreach with student and emerging professional members.

While New England’s history conjures a certain traditional style, a designer’s ultimate goal is to produce an environment that suits the needs of our clients -- to explore and work in a variety of styles.

Charles and Ray Eames: They were able to create iconic designs that are still sought after and admired today. To witness their design process would be fascinating.

Was in hi-tech but not terribly happy. After much soulsearching I left that world and never looked back. I wanted to do something I enjoyed and that made a difference in people’s lives.

Gary Inman Shows Just How Hospitable the Southern Furniture Mecca Can Be Gary Inman is one of those designers who loves to share wisdom and resources. This passion and heartfelt collaborative spirit prompted Gary, along with the High Point Market Authority, to develop Hospitality at Market. Gary says, “I’ve been shopping market for more that 20 years and have always used High Point Market as a resource for hospitality design.“ Noting the variety of environments that hospitality designers work on – country clubs, resorts, condo lobbies, university visitors centers and even some senior facilities to name a few – he’d been encouraging colleagues one-by-one to hightail it to High Point for years before finally deciding to reach out on a grander scale. The inaugural two-day event includes a roster of exceptional industry experts, a rigorous showroom hop featuring over 65 hospitality design-friendly showrooms, and cocktails, of course. The welcome reception is at the posh Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, an historic Winston-Salem Art Deco building, and Thom Filicia will deliver a keynote presentation. The following day’s engaging panel addresses the hospitality designer’s wonderful challenge to create authentic spaces that tell regional and unique stories.

Gary Inman is the VP of Hospitality at Baskervill, a legendary firm which opened its doors in 1897. H e is also the author of T he A rt of F ine L iving blog , and frequently appears on design panels and seminars .

While there will be much to learn during Hospitality at Market, Steelyard asked Gary for some tips especially geared toward newbie hospitality designers. 1 - BE PREPARED

Hospitality moves fast, requires an astute eye for detail, confident decision making and no second guessing.

2 - READ UP

Gary’s recommended reading list includes: Hotel Business Design, Boutique Design, Hospitality Design, as well as online sites like The Design Life Network.

3 - COLLABORATE

Team up with a seasoned hospitality designer until you learn more about the process.

4 - BALANCE ART AND UTILITY

After the design basics of style, scale and color are conceived and budget is determined, performance, code compliance, and lead times are critical factors in specification.

5 - PICK UP THE PHONE

Gary has learned not to depend entirely on electronic communication. An occasional old-fashioned phone call and face-to-face meeting will help keep a relationship strong for years.

6 - BE AWARE

More than ever before, design firms are mindful of sustainability issues and worker conditions. Because there are many exceptional choices out at market, exert your power by purchasing from manufacturers with similar values.

RSVP for Hospitality at Market 336-888-3237 to reserve your spot.


“We always want our designs to be beautiful and to capture a strong sense of place. We love our lobbies, now the hotel equivalent of the fashion runway, and want our restaurants, bars, and rooftop lounges to be energized, theatrical, and most importantly, storied, but they also must perform.� ~ Gary Inman

Time to Reflect Howard Elliott Turns 15

The Orion Mirror has been in Howard Elliott’s line since the company began.

Sixteen years ago Brian Berk left a law practice to get into the decorative mirror business. At his first October Market in 2001, he showed 60 skus in a temporary booth in Plaza Suites. Now Howard Elliott maintains showrooms in several cities and stocks thousands of products - from vessels to occasional furniture, objets and trays, pillows and outdoor seating and of course still plenty of goodlooking mirrors. Thrilled to have been nominated for a recent ARTS award, Brian attributes the company’s success to stocking goods and delivering quickly. When he left the legal arena, Brian’s peers commended his plunge into entrepreneurism. Colleagues in the furniture business reacted differently. “They thought I was crazy for starting Howard Elliott,” he says, adding, “The truth is, with customers, employees and suppliers, I use my legal skills everyday.”

Reigning Style Michelle Workman & Her RoyallyInspired Trimmings If you’ve observed Michelle Workman at market, you know that fashion is as important to her as interior design. Mixing vintage finds with current pieces, her wardrobe is exquisite and often elaborately detailed. This affection for embellishment, coupled with a fascination with the social and historical influences of monarchies past, prompted “The Queen’s Conquest,” a new trim collaboration with Pyar & Co., a boutique soft goods company known for its intricate and luxurious fabrications. Inspired by shells, ship’s sails, corsets and petticoats and the desire to rev up passementerie in general, the palette is diverse, the scale is wider than most traditional trim, and it’s downright hot. Expect to be romanced and dazzled!

“I tried to create something sexy and formidable,” she W orkman who wanted to create a collection that would speak to designers that usually don ’ t use trim . 28

For the Client Who... Is Afraid to Commit When you spec door and cabinet hardware from Longleaf Collection, you can customize any color and finish your imagination can conjure. And if your client decides they want a different color when they remodel five years from now? Send the hardware back to Longleaf and they’ll re-finish it in a new custom color or any of their 44 standard or specialty colors. Handcrafted in NC and family-owned. Longleaf is one of the best-kept secrets in the industry.

Wants Some Swag Stylish enough to want to wear, B&P’s brass and steel Lamp chain comes in a breadth of styles and finishes and a load of finishes ranging from polished lacquer brass, to nickel-plated, black and antique bronze. B&P Lamp Supply is a fourthgeneration family business based in Tennessee that does a lot of work in lighting restoration, parts replacement (need some crystal prisms?) as well as antique reproductions.

Likes to Change it Up Emporium Home’s Agate lighting is never set in stone. Brazilian agate slices (available in brown and gray) and ball, branch, and spike finials (available in satin brass or nickel) on each chandelier and sconce can be interchanged. Maybe it’s just us, but we could spend a good half-day styling those possibilities.

Longs for a Piece of California History Jamie Dietrich Designs is using wood reclaimed from the bench seats at the famed Hollywood Bowl for a new limited collection. Jamie, known vintagelover, fell hard for the soft patina of the Alaskan Yellow Cedar, and knew the warm gray wood would make a fine compliment to her signature acrylic furnishings and sleek horn and antler accessories.

Fab Finishes Color and texture are two characteristics that designers notice immediately. They know that the finish on a piece of furniture completely changes its attitude. Luckily, these three companies totally get that too.

This new offering features 200 new frames that can be specified in one of 25 finishes with a lead time of 6 - 8 weeks. From “Cloud White” to “Inky Black”; always-right neutrals; patinated metallics such as vintage bullion and prosecco; and plenty of hot and cool statement colors... TA has created exponential new possibilities for design -- 5,000 to be exact! Lorimer Table in Hibiscus, Firth Console in Lagoon, Clevis in Cloud White. Coming Soon

When the product designers at Castelle saw gold so wellrepresented in the interiors marketplace but not in outdoors, they acted accordingly and added the luxurious finish to their line. With its streamlined form, brilliant color, and generous Sunbrella cushioning, Solaris is turning heads and comforting bods. To match the sublime appearance, Solaris, like all of Castelle’s furnishings, is privy to a rigorous four-step powder coat finish ensuring that good looks last for a really, really long time.

This Market, the fruits of lead designer Georg Baehler’s inspired mind number one hundred -- and over a dozen products will feature a new Antique Silver finish. No stranger to metals, the Noir line has always gotten a lot of its swank from brass. Antique Silver has a soothing gray shine and is a cooler color option for those seeking to add luster to the mix.

Do-Gooding Do-Gooding At Dwell with Dignity, good design inspires families to maintain a standard of living they can be proud of and thrive in. Dwell with D ignity visionaries : L isa R obison, Founder (left) and K im T urner , VP.

Lisa Robison, a Dallas interior designer, recognized the powerful life-altering effects of environment and decided to use her talent to establish Dwell with Dignity in 2009 with the mission of helping families transcend poverty and homelessness through design --one household at a time. She was soon joined by her designschool chum Kim Turner, and the non-profit was off and running. Over 7 short years, volunteers flocked, projects multiplied, funds flowed in, full-time staff was added, and the outreach was expanded to metro Atlanta. By early 2017, Dwell with Dignity will have completed its 100th project. Each of them have been made possible by countless donations of product, time, talent, and money from generous people across the industry, names big and small. We urge you to visit their website to see more of their projects and learn everything about this amazing initiative.

Universal to the Trade Courts Designers with Style, Service, & Exclusivity


F O C U S - YO U O U G H T T O K N OW VOL 03. - FALL 16’

The new showroom

design incorporates old rafters , showing its architectural heritage .

A

common practice in the home furnishing world is to bring an established designer brand to the masses. Nate Berkus for Target. Jonathan Adler for JC Penney, and so forth. Universal Furniture did something completely different. Having been in business producing mass-appeal retail collections since 1968, the company, in the Spring of ‘15, took a leap up and presented Universal to the Trade, exclusively for interior design professionals, and representing Universal’s highest end. “We saw an opportunity that we weren’t tapping into,” says Universal’s Marketing Director Neil MacKenzie. “We had to get in front of designers and give them something they couldn’t get elsewhere.” In order to capture their attention, Universal first bought prime real estate close to IHFC, and renovated and consequently joined two 19th-century buildings into one 118,000 sq. ft. showroom. Preserving a good bit of the pre-existing architecture, the space has an open, industrial flair, and is filled with natural light -- something sorely missed in most market showrooms. Within this large facility, Universal to the Trade has its own unique area and dedicated entrance.

35


F O C U S - YO U O U G H T T O K N OW VOL 03. - FALL 16’

Beyond making Universal an inviting physical destination, brand stewards made other moves they knew designers would appreciate. From the start, they wanted the designer to feel protected and decided that this boutique line would not be shoppable by the consumer anywhere online or in store. By virtue of being a vertical company, Universal could also ensure short lead times And despite producing a better quality product, the pricing remained impressively reasonable with no minimum orders. While all of these benefits, were most affirming, to capture the discriminating eye of the designer, the gamechanger had to be elevating the aesthetic. They took the creative remote and hired Warren Associates, a small and experienced Grand Rapids studio, to design the collection. The team, comprised of Mike Warren, Shannon Lookabill and Andrea Otto, came up with 80-pieces that crossed function, category, and style, that included statement pieces along with occasional furnishings that could adapt to any space. “We wanted to bring more sophisticated materials to the line and introduce things we never did before,� says Mike Warren, pointing out trade-tailored details such as hand-rubbed finishing, the juxtaposition of burl and stainless, and the use of contrast paint colors. Whether veering toward traditional or contemporary, Universal to the Trade has laid a classic and striking style foundation upon which the design team continues to build. This Market will see 12 new pieces added to the collection, along with new textures and materials such as acrylic and brass. And (you just may want to sit down for this)...rumor has it, Universal will introduce a fully-upholstered canopy bed covered in a crushed gray velvet featuring 7500 polished silver nailhead. Enough said!

THE THOUGHT BEHIND THE DESIGN 1) Easy to Personalize: Most chairs and barstools, like Easton,

have a slip seat which is extremely simple and relatively inexpensive to have recovered.

2) Make it Modern but Not Cold: Using a traditional highsheen burl walnut on a contemporary silhouette and mixing in stainless steel gives the Alistair cocktail table a super modern vibe but it’s still warm. 3) Push the Envelope: Pieces from the collection such as The Avenue Chest, with three sides of textured detail, flexed Universal’s

Imagine Rooms for the 45th POTUS sing Steelyard and a few other favorite resources, seven interior designers – Gary Inman, Eric Haydel, Ashlina Kaposta, NarDesignGroup, Steve McKenzie, Joy Moyler, and Steelyard’s own Steven Avitable – reimagined a few rooms in the White House. Though this was just a fantasy design exercise, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave has never looked so fresh. 39

Steven Avitable Design & Consulting

CONCEPT

The red room sets the tone before and after dinner,

so we are maintaining the historical red reputation, but treating the famous gathering space to a global, more exotic spin. With its dramatic lacquered walls, gold leaf ceiling and brass fixtures, this splendid salon glows and sparkles, and the warm atmosphere feels intimate and lends itself to impassioned conversation. In this incarnation, the formality is eased and leathery reds touched by black feel modern and spicy.

President’s Dining Room The “garden theme” is inspired by the Rumi quote: In paradise there is a garden, I will meet you there.

CONCEPT

The essence of the design was my desire to create a "Garden of Tranquility" for Madame President in which she could begin each day. I'm sure many days will be difficult and filled with thorns, but at least she can begin her mornings in a joyful, uplifting, and healing room colored in blue, which is powerful and somewhat divine as it alludes to the infinite sky, and white which signifies purity of spirit and purpose and the hope for new beginnings – plus my client looks radiant in white.

Ashlina Kaposta The Decorista

Dressing Suite

CONCEPT

For the modern first lady, I draw inspiration from the

most memorable power woman, Coco Chanel. Combining rich textures, metallic finishes, decadent shapes, we have a modern twist on an elegant design. When in a dressing room a woman wants to feel decadent and luxurious. This mix provides that ambiance for her. The modern light fixture, impressive and otherworldly, sets the stage. An antique Parisian style vanity desk is a nod to the history of the White House and the pop of black provides a dash of sophistication. The velvet settee lounger is deliciously comfortable, a place to settle quietly before retiring for the evening.

President’s Study

CONCEPT

Designing for the next President’s innermost sanctum, left me appealing

to the desire for a personal space that truly reflects taste and inspiration. The President, a modernist at heart, needs a private place to escape and think, read and simply be... uninterrupted. A love of mid-century was the springing-off point for clean lines and a warm palette. Not encumbered by the need to reflect the Federal traditional style seen throughout much of the White House, we focused on using elements that the President alone will use and enjoy thoroughly.

Family Kitchen Roman shades in William Morris Bluebell

CONCEPT

While it was important to

preserve the rich history and architecture of the White House, it was equally necessary for the family kitchen to be a comfortable place for all ages and to reflect the President’s appreciation for eclectic design cultivated by her extensive travel. Bar stools pull up to a large central island, and a small customdining table invites more to gather. The cabinets, in a pleasing combination of waterfall blue, gravel gray and frosty white, have historical reference, while recessed doors and satin brass accents convey a contemporary edge. Special features include Dekton countertops and a Spekva wood island that waterfalls to the floor. With attention to detail, we mixed a variety of materials and finishes to achieve a thoughtful and modern space.

CONCEPT

Blue and white are

extraordinarily calming colors at day’s end. An invitation to ultimate relaxation. That, with the feel of deep rich velvet, silk damask and luxury bedding. Furniture styles mix, representing past and present, reminding of us where we are and where we are going. What Head of State wouldn't want to end the day gazing up at whipped cream plaster mouldings from a plush lounge chair and ottoman or from bed, the sweet serenading sounds of Frank Sinatra adding to relaxing moments, kissing the day goodbye, lending gentle reminders that in a world of constant stress and daily strife, when it’s lights out... romance and love still exist.

The Family Dining Room

CONCEPT

The White House Family Dining Room, used for

entertaining intimate groups and managing overflow from the State Dining Room, should be a room of warmth, charm and class. We thought that we could add some fun with multiple patterns and layered texture. Overscaled urns filled with the season’s greenery keeps the room fresh and relevant throughout the year. Practical china from Kate Spade has some whim and the black and white is as classic and timeless as the architecture of this rich space. Dramatic lighting in rich gold tones contrasts with cool violet toile curtains. This is a space where those who get bumped from the stuffier State room are actually happy to land.

nfluence marketing has been around for as long as civilized society; all that’s changed is the way it’s done. Before the Industrial Revolution, influence was exercised locally from soapboxes and in print. As innovation increased mobility and long-distance messaging, sound and air waves broadened the sphere of influence which takes us to NOW, when one trending hashtag can woo the world. This special power to inexorably rock someone’s world brings us to acknowledge 5 awesome influences. A previously overlooked Founding Father, literati professing the merits of self-reliance, a gifted and plucky socialite, the birth of manufacturing, and westward expansion – have all left a lasting imprint on American design.

What Designers Want

N

ine industry style hunters attest there’s definitely a sense of giddy anticipation around fall Market. To see, to touch, to visit, to learn, to buy, to dream. It’s all in one town. Come and get it, y’all!

74

1) Natalie Reddell, Commander in Chic “I am particularly excited about the great line-up of seminars. There is a group of leading designers hosting a seminar called How To Broaden Your Brand & an expert panel discussing how trend meets tradition. For clients, I am hunting for lots of rugs, bedding, lighting and I can't (or won't) leave High Point without covering every inch of the Antique & Design Center. And, of course, The Golden Hashtag and I are completely committed to scouting the Best-of-the-Best!”


FO CU S - R A DA R VOL 03. - FALL 16’

2) Jana Platina Phipps, Trim Queen “I can’t wait to see the Opium Den that Tristan Butterfield and team created to launch Baker as a fabric house. I’m also looking forward to Michelle Workman’s timmings intro with Pyar & Co. And of course, I look forward to seeing everyone on the dance floor at the ZAAR Good Karma Party Sunday night at Union Square where I play DJ with Jason Oliver Nixon. Think the best of the 80s, funk & Rolling Stones.”

3) Tony Baratta, Anthony Baratta Home “No question I will be scouring that vintage antique showroom in Market Square as early as possible this market. I saw so many fabulous deco and 60’s mod finds marked “sold”- heartbreaking! I mean, a white patent leather sofa? Are you kidding me? I really wanted that…And I saw some gorgeous citron-green Vaseline glass vases that were to die for. Also sold. So…I am packing my running shoes!”

3

4) Miera Melba, Miera Melba Interior Design “In addition to networking with designers from all over the world, catching up with friends, and visiting brilliantly designed showrooms, I’ll be looking out for new sources for my clients that embrace clean, modern, comfortable design. Oversized contemporary cocktail tables are on my list, and I will review the latest fabric intros from my favorite brands, so when ordering upholstery I can order from their line and not COM. Since quite a few clients live in the same community, it’s very important to bring back enough new and different to ensure they all get something unique.”

4

5) Donna Moss, Donna Moss Designs “Sourcing furniture, lighting and accessories for my room at the Dallas Decorator’s Showhome sponsored by Traditional Home magazine is mandatory. Focus Donna! Searching for serious bedroom eye candy and drapery panels is also high priority. Yes, I’m driving down the design highway at high speed (hopefully no fashion police to slow me down)! The search is on for dining, coffee & end tables with modern organic textures & shapes.”

6) Barclay Butera, Barclay Butera Interiors “Every High Point Market I am on the hunt for large, overscale, unusual home décor and accessories. There is a myriad of options, but when I stumble upon statement décor that I’ve never seen before, that gets me jazzed. This fall? I hope to see something bronze, lucite, and wood/metal mix. I love a bold piece that catches the eye, sometimes I wander off from my team because I can’t resist checking it out!”

7) Vicki Bolick, The Ace of Space “One thing that I’m most excited about seeing is lighting & color! I love big fixtures, from pendants to the drama of oversized chandeliers. Lighting designs continue to evolve, and I’m looking for unusual silhouettes along with unique, artistic pairing of materials for maximum impact. I'll also be following the color MVP's and getting the scoop on which colors "interiors will be wearing" for 2017. High Point is, after all, the furnishings equivalent of fashion week! Let there be color!”

7

8) Leslie Moore, L. Moore Designs “While I am always on the look-out for new companies, Market is my opportunity to sit on every piece of upholstery that I can. That is my #1 goal as I go from showroom to showroom. At the moment lighting is a big one for me as I have several specific items I am looking for on projects. I have my go-to sources but I am keeping an eye out to see what others are offering too. I have a new project that will be in the neutral zone as far as paints & upholstery, but I will be looking for accessories in blues & reds for the client. I also want to see what new finishes are being offered for case pieces.”

8

9) Stephen Shutts, Stephen Shutts Design “At every High Point Market, I always have my go-to destinations, but this fall I will be devoting extra time at one of my favorites, the Antique and Design Center. I am currently working on a large-scale residential project with a European Renaissanceinspired aesthetic, and I know the Antique and Design Center will have the perfect accessory pieces I need. And as always, I will be on the lookout for new introductions and new inspiration - two things never in short supply at High Point!”
