Throwback Thursday – The HGTV Conference Room

As seen at I Heart HGTV on January 7th, 2014 

The HGTV Magazine staff started out the New Year with a refreshed, refurnished, and revamped conference room! All thanks to our friends at HGTV HOME!

The redo experts took our boring office space, and transformed it into a stylish, colorful, and cozy spot for meetings, brainstorming, and okay, a little partying! Check out our before and after pictures below. Plus find details on specific paint colors, fabric patterns, and more HGTV HOME furniture and products used in the makeover.

High Point Furniture Market – Berry Bliss

Hate to say we told you so but back on September 19th DESIGNWORKSSTYLE.COM spoke about Berry Bliss as a current trend in the market. That was from Nancy’s trip to Europe. We now have these photos from High Point to back up our blog post… Trending are berry tones in woven geometrics, prints and patterns as well as stripes and updated chevrons. These beautiful pics were taken at The Bassett Showroom IHFC, 12th floor and are the perfect mix of berry color combinations.

High Point Furniture Market – Legacy Home

Nancy here, as promised still sharing from The High Point Furniture Market!!

Market might be over but the excitement is not…. Have to share “Legacy Home” because I was so impressed with their style, sense of color and fabric choices…a well merchandised and styled line of bedding, pillows, drapery and headboards. See for yourself as you view the following fab prints, patterns and weaves! Legacy Home Collections are available through-the-trade and their website is legacylinens.com

High Point Market – “Dovetail”

One Company… so many different personalities… A fantastic mix of quilted leather,  mixed fabric tufting details and updated classics with old world charm!

I love seeing so many variations on chairs this market in many fabrics and shapes.

Designers were more daring in mixing styles this market especially within each chair silhouette combining raw finishes with elegant fabrics.

Fusion Friday – Cork

Cork is quite possibly one of the better materials for any type of creating; fashion and home included. Oak trees that grow in the western Mediterranean form thick, rugged and corky bark. Over time, this park can develop a considerable thickness and can be harvested every 10-12 years as cork. The harvesting of the cork does not harm the tree, and the a new layer of cork regrows, making it a renewable resource.cork
