Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.  It is the place of confidence...... It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule.  ~Frederick W. Robertson

Highlights of my High Point Market Travels

After attending the grand High Point Market event I'm full of ideas.....it's always great to come back with a burst of new ideas and inspirations.  Some of the highlights I want to share with you are Duralee's audacious and show stopping showroom.....take a look at these great pictures.....bold colors, big patterns, great accessories, and furniture...overall a well rounded space to showcase their products.  
As you enter Duralee's showroom....you couldn't help but have your jaw drop with this stunning Peacock fabric from Thomas Paul Print 2 collection...I love the simplicity of the San Paulo armless sofa....it commanded attention with the stripe fabric that was added ...what a great concept!  This years: Turquoise color was prominent throughout their set-up.  It's always refreshing to see vibrant and lively colors that are captured from nature and interpreted for in home use.  
Key pieces here are the Hemingway wing chairs, the Charleston and London Sofa, the Oliver Bench...
and of course can't forget the Pavilion fabric in Thomas Paul Print 2 Collection...  
Manhattan Arm and side chair, the Soho console with high shelf, with the Eastside Tufted Ottoman, and the fabric is part of the Highland Court Hollywood Collection Film Noir
Twin beds....they are everywhere.... love the size and shape of the Regency Headboards, the Park Avenue wood frame ottomans, the Soho Night Stand with shelf and the large scale floral print fabric in Thomas Paul Print 2 Collection in the Seaglass colorway.   
Looking for a great nautical or sea life print... look no further than Thomas Paul Print 2
Collection.  The Westside Dining Table and the Soho console table are also showcased in this room.

I hope you can take inspiration from these images...bring in a color, pattern, and style into your space.  All of the featured fabrics are from the talented Thomas Paul and are exclusively through Duralee.... Lets not forget the finishing touches from Arteriors....the accessories company that pulls it all together.
I'm off to my next project.....a House Tour.... I'll keep you posted with all the details!
