Market 2011 Preview

by Melanie, April 1, 2011
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… High Point Market starts tomorrow! We’re heading down on Sunday for a few days to check out all the new products of the year. We can’t wait to find new furniture, accessories and art lines to use in upcoming projects.

The whole design team is going to High Point this year and we will be documenting our entire experience to share with our readers. Stay tuned over the next few days for pictures, videos and other exciting news from the Whittington team at market!

If you missed the blog post last year, here are some pictures from 2010 Market (just to get you excited about what’s to come) and how we used our favorite pieces from 2010 in our designs.

It was love at first sight… Melanie knew she had to have this pendant for her new kitchen.

Here’s the pendant in its new home. Looks fantastic!

We loved the Moroccan feel of this funky pendant and knew we had to use it somewhere.

Yes…it was perfect for a client’s dining room to create a unique and cultured atmosphere.

The Vanguard showroom was incredible! Five floors of pure design heaven with an open bar on the roof! I think we saw this ottoman on floor 2 right after we met Thom Filicia! This time we’ll get a picture with Thom.

It looks totally different in a mahogany finish and floral fabric in this Arlington living room. We love the softness of the upholstery and the functionality of the shelf and casters.

This console is actually from Thom Filicia’s Vanguard Furniture line, which debuted at Market 2010.
Melanie knew it would look amazing in her living room. The contrasting leather and nail-head are a perfect combination for a sophisticated and modern (but also kid friendly) living room.

This wood cut panel series was absolutely beautiful in the Moe’s showroom. We loved how the cherry blossoms just float across the wall.

We thought the panels would be a perfect touch for the spring store front last year. They actually sold the week we brought them back!
