Favorite Friday!

Favorite Friday!

We have added several new products to Furniture Crate the last couple months and many of those have made it to the top of my Favorite’s List! The first is The Melange Lana Upholstered bed from Hooker Furniture. Not only am I still in love with the color gray, but the curves of the bed are so unique and it instantly grabbed my attention.



Next on my list is the entire new line from Stanley Furniture called Coastal Living Retreat! The colors and classic style have me obsessed. If I had to choose, the English Blue finish is my favorite. Which one is yours?

And last, Universal Furniture’s Great Rooms Collection came out with a line called Berkeley 3. I’ve always been a fan of the rustic, industrial look especially when it’s paired with linen and other light fabrics, so this collection caught my eye right away! The Brownstone finish is my favorite but I would take it all!

Wallpaper anyone?

Wallpaper has slowly made its way back into our homes. Whether it is a bright, bold color used on one accent wall or a muted pattern throughout the room, I love it! Do you have wallpaper in your home? If so, share with us in the comments section!

More from High Point Market April 2014

One thing I love about going to market is seeing the hot designer trends. There was definitely a resurgence of antiques and classics all around us.

Here is a list of what we saw that was on it’s way back and becoming popular.

Golds and brasses are making a major comeback, as seen in the previous market.
My favorite.. this bed by Bernhardt! The gold mixed with gray creates a very sophisticated master suite.

Antique mirrors, mostly seen in chests, sideboards and tables.

Walnut veneers, more emphasis on the natural grain and walnut was used a lot in mid-century design.

Benches featured with dining seating. More stone inlays in occasional and case pieces. Also, some more modern pieces now incorporating concrete.

Rustic diagonal or chevron inlayed wood top tables.

Gray painted furniture, especially in kids collections. Looks especially sweet mixed with pinks.

Gathering heights are becoming more formal in design.

More to come later, stay tuned!
