As promise, here are some more photos of things we saw and/or bought at the furniture market in North Carolina. We went down primarily looking for accessories this trip and we really didn’t go into many of the furniture companies whose lines we carry. But that can be a trip for the fall!
We were anxious to visit a company whose reps visited the store and asked us to stop in to see their line. We were so impressed with the pieces that they offer and we promptly started an order! My partner in crime wasn’t sure about adding in this green bar cabinet, so I used a little smooth talking to convince him. Check out the legs on this baby and the wonderful aged finish!
One thing that seemed to be consistent throughout the showrooms was the use of reclaimed wood. It seems that companies are combing India and buying up old barns, buildings, and fences to use in the manufacturing of these pieces.
The slatted shutter look was predominant in a lot of pieces. Aren’t the colors so much fun?
Lighting still holds an industrial edge in many showrooms. This pendant would be easy to duplicate using materials that are readily available. The diffuser might pose a problem, but seeing an industrial Edison bulb wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, would it?
These were my favorite! Love the aged copper look. I think when I ‘d like to see these in my own kitchen. Even at full retail price, they were very reasonable.
How simple, and yet fantastic, are these wood slat pendants?
Once again, the industrial look……
Hope you’re enjoying the accessories I’ve shown you so far. Drop me a note and let me know what you think.
And if you’re looking for a wonderful sale to attend this weekend, take a gander at this one! It is located in Mt. Vernon, Ohio and promises to be a doozie! I went to Page’s fall sale last year and I saw so many fantastic things. This year, there are even more vendors to visit. A few of us Ohio bloggers will be shopping and having lunch at the farm. This year, I’ll be wearing my “Wellies” so I don’t slip and fall on the ground, like I did last time. I had a heckuva bruise and was sore for weeks. The farm’s owner recently had a 10-page feature in Country Living Magazine. Go check that out and maybe you’ll decide to make the trip to central Ohio. If you are planning to attend, drop me a note so we can meet up. We’ll be there bright and early Friday morning.
