I’m back to show a little more inspiration from the furniture market last week. Some of you have asked what the color theme was this spring and basically it is just plain colorful! Lots of tangerine, chartreuse, fuschia, turquoise….. We weren’t in many furniture showrooms this trip, so I have very few pictures of any upholstered goods. But trust me, the Pantone colors were everywhere!
This contemporary sectional was in the Basset showroom- what a great company with a quality product. Just look at the gorgeous chartreuse accented with blue pillows. Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoyed seeing the bright color.
I saw some wonderful case goods in the showroom, too. Here’s the piece I would love to have in my own study. Barrister bookshelves, drawers, and lots of cubbies supply needed storage. A pull-out drawer is the perfect place to do your paperwork or use your laptop. Note the built-in clock and the key holder.
The sales rep was very excited about the new finish in the line. This farm table is sporting it- it’s a look-alike chalk paint finish!
This grouping in the line was not given the typical, flawless furniture finish; instead the finish was done to mimic a DIY paint job. You can see brush strokes and the uneven finish in the grooves. Do you think the company big whigs read blogs for inspiration?
I’ll be back with more accessory photos tomorrow. I saw some great accent pieces made from reclaimed wood, as well as some cool lighting fixtures. I’m off to pot some plants that I got at the nursery before they croak in the heat. Yes, we’re back up in the high 70’s again! But who knows what tomorrow will bring? Gotta get the work done while I can.
