I recently got an exclusive preview of the Heimtextil Trends 2013/2014 which will be presented by Messe Frankfurt next month at the trade fair taking place in Frankfurt, Germany. The Heimtextil Trends 2013/2014 offers an in-depth view on influential developments in the area of home textiles.

This year, the current trends have been categorized into four distinct personalities: the historian, the eccentric, the inventor, and the geologist.

Here’s a look at the textile preview trends of what will be shown at the Heimtextil show in 2013:

Muted colors are seen in the Historian collection.

The Eccentric features vibrant colors and textures.

Vibrancy reigns in the Eccentric collection.

The Inventor features innovative textiles.

Undoubtedly earthy in the Geologist collection.

Pretty colors featured in the fabrics from the Geologist collection.

For more info, visit the Messe Frankfurt website for features on all the home and gift shows.

Tufted headboards, tufted sofas, maybe a tufted bench…How about tufted walls? Check out these rooms taking the tufting to a whole new vertical level!

While attending High Point Market last month, I also had the opportunity to visit both the Drexel Heritage and Thomasville Showrooms located in the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC).  If you happen to be in High Point – be sure to check out the IHFC and visit both showrooms which are located directly across from each other. Until then – here’s a preview of what you might see!

The entrance to the Drexel Heritage showroom.

Cassandra from Coco + Kelley tests out a fun chair in a bright yellow fabric.

One of my favorites, this tie-dyed nail-head console.

Another spectacular piece, this statement headboard upholstered in a fun bug fabric!

The fabric room at Drexel Heritage – so well stocked and organized, with an inventory of just about anything you could possibly be looking for!

There’s also an abundance of finish assortments to choose from, including many options in wood tones and paint colors.

An entire section is dedicated to dining room furnishings, including bar stools, counter stools, and a counter stool banquette – as modeled by Cassie.

For the more traditional, an upholstered headboard and foot bench make for great classics.

Among the room vignettes are lots of great accent pieces, such as this Moroccan inspired nail-head upsholstered side table.

(Be sure to check out the Drexel Heritage blog – which features us on our tour during High Point Market!)

The entrance to the two story Thomasville showroom at IHFC.

There are some fabulous headboards in their collection, like this tufted scalloped version.

All shapes & sizes, and can be customized in many fabric options.

Cute little chair, in equally cute fabric! (I saw a picture of this chair go by on Twitter as the perfect chair for “tweeting” – true!)

My infamous “Chair model Cassie” testing out a glam chair she eyed.

Thank you to Drexel Heritage and Thomasville for the extensive tours and inviting us to come visit the showrooms during High Point Market! Thank you to Lisa Hanly for coordinating our showroom tours for High Point Market!

Last week while attending High Point Spring Market, I had the opportunity to tour the Hickory Chair showroom in North Carolina. Hickory recently celebrated their 100 year anniversary – quite an impression, and a lasting one – so happy to know the longevity of a company, with it’s furnishings made right in our country, hand made, and built to last. I could not be more supportive of that!

Here’s a glimpse into the Hickory Chair showroom – only a fraction of what is to be seen as the rooms are packed full of amazing goods. I highly recommend a visit if you happen to be in High Point, NC – but here’s a start!

Off the main entry are steps that lead to room vignette after room vignette, including spaces dedicated to Hickory Chair’s exclusive designers, including: Alexa Hampton, Mariette Himes Gomez, Suzanne Kasler, Thomas O’Brien, & more!

One of my favorite rooms was the inspiration room by Hable Construction, featuring the latest Hable Textiles. Loved how creative the display was, inspiring indeed – and really loved all the textiles!

Just something really different – textiles from Hable Construction.

And in blue too!

More from the Hable Construction inspiration room!

Another highlight of our showroom tour was meeting some of the interior designer’s in their actual spaces at Hickory Chair! Here is my friend Sheena with interior designer Alexa Hampton. (The introductions went something like this, “Hi, I’m Sheena, your summer intern.”) Alexa is also very humourous by the way, I think we all had a good laugh talking with her.

Just part of Alexa Hampton’s room vignette – the wall color is an amazing, dramatic glossy navy blue.

In the next room over, we met interior designer Mariette Himes Gomez and her daughter Brooke. It was neat to engage with them and hear their stories. Nevermind meeting them in person!

An upholstered bed designed by Mariette Himes Gomez. I like that it’s not too feminine, yet not too masculine either.

A fun, girly room designed by Suzanne Kasler. (Of course, Cassandra from Coco + Kelley immediately declared this was Ashlina from The Decorista’s future girl’s bedroom – and had to text her to tell her!)

And then ALL the girls wanted their picture taken in the room (they fit in so well!). Here’s Ashlina of The Decorista, Crystal of Rue Magazine, & Cassie from Coco + Kelley.

Another fun surprise was seeing fellow blogger and designer Tobi Fairley’s furnishings at Hickory Chair. I really think they greatly reflect Tobi’s design aesthetics!

Love this chair by Tobi too!

Also saw some interesting pieces of furniture, and lots of pretty colors too – like with this chest!

And this fun, colorul zig zag print fabric!

Pretty colors on this ottoman bench and sofa fabric and pillows, as seen at Hickory Chair.

Perfectly pretty side table as seen in a bedroom vignette.

A special thank you to Hickory Chair for inviting me to tour the showroom and experience High Point. Many thanks to Laura Holland at Hickory Chair for her expertise and knowledgeable showroom tour.

{The official High Point Market Spring 2012 poster}

I’ve just returned from a fabulous trip to High Point Market Spring 2012! Hardly made a dent in all that there is to see – but here’s a highlight of some of the things that did catch my eye!

 

Seeing a lot of the natural and organic, this rope chandelier at Regina Andrew really caught my attention!

And these little side tables too, also from Regina Andrew.

Noir Furniture had a ton of great accessories, furniture, and lighting – Katie of Matchbook Magazine was eyeing some of the accessories!

Oomph was fresh and vibrant – lots of colorful items in their collections!

Pretty sure this is the prettiest backgammon table I’ve ever seen!

All the little side tables from Oomph are fun in their assortment of colors and patterned tops!

Dransfield & Ross had some very pretty bedding, bathroom accessoires, and pillows in their space at High Point. I loved some of the soft muted colors in their bedding collections.

All of these bathroom accessories from Dransfield & Ross are gorgeous!

This nautical pillow in their collection has been a long time favorite of mine, perhaps stemming from my year’s of being around boats.

The Halo showroom is always where it’s happening…gotta love that edgy industrial chic vibe with a British edge by Timothy Oultan.

The fab lighting at the Halo Styles showroom.

“Kids in the window” – at the Oly showroom with Christian of Maison21, Ashlina of The Decorista, Crystal of Rue Magazine, Mandy, & Cassandra of Coco + Kelley.

So fresh and pretty and Spring-like at Oly!

There were some very pretty upholstered pieces, like this headboard from Thomasville.

And this side chair too, from Thomasville.

Loved this headboard at Drexel Heritage!

This console table from Drexel Heritage with the tie dye effect fabric and nail-head trim really caught my eye – and so did the whole vignette, love the Arabesque mirrors too!

Over at Hickory Chair, these “painterly” textiles from Hable Construction were a favorite of all of us.

The painted effect seems to be popular, as also seen on this chest at Hickory Chair.

More vibrant colors on the fabric in this Hickory Chair.

As one of the featured designer collections at Hickory Chair, Suzanne Kasler’s girl’s room vignette was oh so pretty!

As always, the Currey & Co showroom space was magnificent, filled with all their amazing lighting (& furnishing) pieces!

I spotted these fun and colorful pendants at Currey & Co from across the room!

Loved this elegant table lamp from Currey & Co named “Cassandra” after our own Cassandra from Coco + Kelley!

We had the most fun and fantastic tour of CR Laine given to us by Holly. All of us enjoyed visiting the showroom – we even got to pick out fabrics for pillows that are being made for us! Can’t wait to share that! This is the entry to the showroom space. Again, seeing lots of pretty colors and a fresh, Spring like look!

Cassandra of Coco + Kelley and Ashlina of The Decorista fit right into the CR Laine showroom!

Global Views was filled with so many great accessories & furnishings – it was like being a kid in a candy store! And lots & lots of color!

Thought this tall headboard at Global Views was very chic.

In awe of this credenza from Global Views, too – love the detailing and hardware.

The ever so cool Four Hands showroom had a lot of great things going on (& not just because they throw the best party in town during High Point Market!) – loved these cluster of pendants and the round dining table.

These colorful Moroccan lanterns were seen all through out the Four Hands showroom.

And if you are looking to catch a breath of fresh air, step out onto the balcony at Four Hands which is filled with beautiful outdoor furniture and overlooks the buildings of High Point!

Peacock Passion

Lately I have been noticing a lot of peacocks in interior design – everything from artwork to accessories! It may be a classic motif, but it certainly has made a resurgence. Take a look!

While at High Point Market I had the opportunity to visit the Lexington Home Brands headquarters for an extensive tour of their 100,000 square feet of showroom space. Among the many lines Lexington carries, Henry Link Trading Co. and Tommy Bahama Home are part of their popular furniture collections. I was amazed at the vast selections and styles among all the collections, and impressed with the quality of the furnishings and fabric options.

Love this glam chair called the GretA with it’s pretty print and nailhead detail.

The Gigi Chair in a fun fabric!

Alhambra Chair from the St Tropez collection.

These Kelly Bookcases are really unique.

A pair of the Marilyn Ottomans.

Sleek in leather too.

A pair of the Pampelonne Leather Ottomans.

Also comes in fabric!

The dramatic Garland Left Arm Facing Chair.

The same chair takes on a different character in a printed fabric (& comes in a right facing version too!).

A sofa from the Lexington Upholstery collection.

Colorful chairs from the Lexington Leather collection.

The new Tommy Bahama Road to Canberra collection.

I love the Aboriginal art inspired pillow.

This dining table and room vignette evoked a mountainous resort lodge.

This dining table is inset with rope under a glass top.

The Henry Link Trading Co. collection offers an eclectic mix of furnishings inspired by a “passion for travel and discovery.”

A “Moroccan inspired” cube.

Available in a dark finish too.

A gallery of hand drawn furniture creations line the walls of a hallway at the Lexington Home Brands showroom.

Thank you to Amy & Shannon for leading us on such a great tour and thank you to Lexington for inviting us to come experience High Point & view the collections!

Just a few weeks ago Emily blogged about Kelly Wearstler’s fabric turned fashion, as seen in the picture below.  Over a year ago, I featured a post on an announcement that Kelly would be venturing into fashion design.  And as many of you may have seen, the collection has made it’s debut launching with a Fall 2011 collection that includes clothes, jewelry, clutches, and scarves.  The collection will be sold at Bergdorf Goodman in a space designed by Kelly herself.  Prince points range from $205 to $1,395 for clothes, $155-$995 for jewelry, and $795-$995 for purses (per source).

{A fabric from Kelly’s fabric line at worn as a skirt.}

Thanks to Kelly’s marketing team, they allowed me access to some additional images of her fashion line to download for the Material Girl’s blog.

Here’s a preview of what will soon be in available!

And check out Kelly’s recent blog post on her trip to NYC to show her collection during New York Fashion Week.
