I said “ooh” and “ahh” more times than a crowd at a fireworks show at last week’s High Point Market, but (hard as it was) I’ve managed to narrow the list to my very favorite finds. Here are 7 things to keep an eye out for this season.

Tobi Fairley

Tobi Fairley Home
Interior designer  and blogger Tobi Fairley added job to her business card this week: her own furnishings line, Tobi Fairley Home. The bright colors and preppy patterns so prevalent in her design work are now. We spotted the fabrics, pillows and light fixtures in the Hickory Chair showroom — preview them on her website.


Tempaper‘s removable wallpaper offers all the style of the real thing without the hassle of putting it up and taking it down (and it’s renter-friendly!). Lili wrote about this amazing moveable art back in July, but I fell hard for their perfectly of-the-moment teal-and-gold quatrefoil print.

Oomph Table

Oomph Greenwich Side Table
This occasional table encapsulates several of the season’s hottest trends: it boasts a fun shape, a high-gloss finish, 16 bright color options, and a textured top made of raffia, linen or animal print (your choice). No matter which options you choose, it’s hard not to smile when you see this personality-packed accent.

Regina Andrew Sconce

Golden Driftwood Sconce
This wall lamp from Regina Andrew is the perfect mix of natural and glam.  The gold-hued driftwood would look stunning anywhere from a chic beach house to a contemporary forest-side pad.

Bamboo Light Fixtures

Rattan Nest Chandelier
Both functional and beautiful, this unique piece from Clayton-Oxford furniture would add a whimsical quality to any room.  This conversation piece is made from lightweight rattan twigs and lit from the inside.

Dwell Studio

DwellStudio’s Gazelle Table
I’ve been chomping at the bit to see DwellStudio’s new furniture line ever since Briana featured this ikat-printed couch, and it didn’t disappoint. Along with the sofa and this Scandinavian-inspired Hans chair, this part-art-part-function gazelle table is now on my must-have list.


Insect Art
As a long-time lepidoptera lover, I nearly swooned when I saw these artful arrangements of insects from the Pheromone by Christopher Marley line. (I’m partial to the iridescent, symmetrical arrangement above.) If it eases your mind, the insects are responsibly harvested and the frames are sealed to last a lifetime. Bugs not your thing? You can also get framed arrangements of fossils, sea life and carnivorous plants.

    I normally don't like rattan, but there is something about those chandeliers I just LOVE. What a shame there is nowhere in the house they would work. *sigh*
