Last summer, Justin and I were fortunate to have purchased a home that was once inhabited by an avid gardener. This spring, we delighted in the colors bursting all around our yard. Bless you, gardening angel. What a gift to wake up on Holy Saturday to find purple and white irises abloom! Especially when you didn’t even know they were there. 

Sweet-smelling irises shooting up, seemingly, out of nowhere.

A few days later, Chelsey and I were excited to hear what Michael Payne would say to a packed room of interior designers and furniture industry insiders at High Point Market.

From the designer/the writer himself.

If you haven’t seen Angelo’s blog, it’s one of the best. Colorful, classic, cool.

The line, which will include around 30 pieces, ranges from $249 to $759. On his blog, he gives the lowdown on the inspiration behind the design, how he made it so affordable and a few sneak peek shots of the line.

You didn’t think we’d leave High Point without giving you a peek at Candice Olson’s new pieces, did you? We stopped by Norwalk Furniture’s showroom yesterday and were greeted by her incredible new color scheme of truffles and ice. Candice’s combinations of serene blues, grey-browns and bright whites create a relaxing, yet sophisticated atmosphere.

The Ollie Sectional is the newest piece of her popular Ollie collection. With it’s sleek style and versatility in fabric, arm and leg choices, it’s the perfect addition to any family room.

My favorite new pieces is the Calvin chair. One of the things Candice does best is taking a classic style and adding her own unique touch to it. The Calvin chair is a tribute to the timeless wingback, but the deep pitch and exaggerated curves bring an updated, sexy vibe to the design.

We have an exclusive interview with Norwalk experts coming soon. Just wait until you see the Calvin chair in white leather!

One of the most exciting new lines we’ve checked out at High Point Furniture Market is the Paula Deen Home Collection. Paula, who as I’m sure you know, is one of our favorite Food Network stars and in addition to her show, cookbooks and other ventures, she is now adding furniture design to her list.

We met The Bag Lady herself and got the chance to hear firsthand about the her leap from food to home furnishings. She shared with us how from the start of her business, she wanted to make quality food and sell it for a fair price and now Universal Furniture has done just that with her furnishings line. You’re going to love it!

One of Paula’s favorite pieces in the new collection is The Bag Lady’s Cabinet, which features two framed glass doors and eight ample drawers that mimic 16 narrow map drawers.

It’s bound to happen at Market. You will stumble across a great design story – if you have your eyes open. We spotted this crazy, cool chair on the way to the elevators in the Design Wing of the International Home Furnishings Center. And what a cool chair it was is – as is the designer who created it!

Market is a lot of things. Mostly, for us, it has been exciting, non-stop, late night, unpredictable and exhausting! Good exhausting. We happened upon this product line at the most perfect time. Aaaahhhhhh!

Stress-less furniture? Yes, I can say: it is true.
Tell us what you think.

The perfect way to find your own style is to learn how to combine the new with the old. Eloquence has accomplished this incredible task with their company, which started as an antique company seven years ago. They still feature French-inspired antiques, but are also now creating antique reproductions, as well as painting vintage pieces that need to be updated.

According to their website, “The idea behind Eloquence was to create furniture with such elegance that it needed no explanation. The pieces should speak for themselves.” And they do just that.
