We're back. We were in High Point, NC for a week for the biggest furniture market in the world. It always amazes me that such a huge event takes place in such a small town. It was a very inspiring market. Lots of color, lots of good news of the economy and of course, great design.
We've put together a selection of our favorite pieces from one of our preferred furniture designers, Barclay Butera (who we also saw in High Point).
The Croft desk is truly a favorite of mine because not only is it a beautiful piece that is exceptionally crafted but it also serves another purpose as it is a partner desk. Partner desks have many advantages – space saver, cost efficient and they lend the ability to sneak in a little flirtatious footzie with your “partner” in between paying bills & catching up on those never-ending emails!

I love love love this mirror! The carved edge frames the mirror in the most unique way. Holly
This bed looks so comfortable and inviting. I love that the upholstered fabric is very neutral and that any color bedding would work on it. The footboard makes it more on the modern side, but that doesn’t bother me. I love footboards…they finish the piece. The side rails look wood, but they are metal. So it’s edgy and soft! And I love the juxtaposition of this chair and dresser! The chair is classic and fun. I love the fabric…it would completely liven up a room. And the dresser is very delicate and simple. The wood is so pretty. It will serve a great purpose in any bedroom!
The Leather Piper Plantation Chair still holds at #1 for many of us… including Janet and Nan.
Classic styling with a twist. Love the nail head tacks and the contrast suede. Plus it’s really comfortable. Have you come in to see this East Indies bed? I absolutely love the detail on the bottom of the footboard on this bed. No need for a dust ruffle here. Nan
Beautifully crafted, this bed is a favorite of mine due to the rich detail and low profile posts, making it warm and inviting for any bedroom. Lauren
I adore this chaise. It has such beautiful lines, and details to it. The red leather is simply gorgeous. When we were first introduced to this line by Barclay, I couldn’t stop thinking about this piece….I really need to figure a place in my own home for it! And this chair is named after Ginger Rogers. It honors the legacy of the actress by combining comfort with an effortless style, so like the hotels often graced by this starlet. This stylish chair would add lots of elegance to a room. Envision at the end of the day relaxing in this beauty with a lemon drop martini.
I guess I like a bit of the Pan Asian influence as you can see from my picks. Accented with ebony mahogany, the carved frame on the chair carries the bamboo motif. I could never do such a bold pattern on a chair but I think it's fabulous. Maybe I can be daring....
Another of Holly's picks is the Ryan City Bar. “I really like this piece, very classy.”
(and Rick, rarely one for giving a straight answer...)
I am a sucker for chrome and now chrome with really soft leather,,, I want to slick back my hair, have martinis over looking Manhattan and SHE is wearing a slinky something with Cole Porter playing the piano…I am rich and I don’t hesitate in using a cab over walking 2 blocks.
Do you see a favorite here?
