Out and About Town with Mr. Brown High Point Furniture Market

Another post from High Point Furniture Market, but this is “Out and About Town with Mr. Brown High Point Furniture Market”

For those of you attending the High Point Furniture Market… it pays to venture into the town of  High Point and head to Mr. Brown on 114-116 East Kivett Street (corner of Wrenn) and check out their “hidden treasures” of upholstery and case goods with interesting prints and woven designs. Mr Brown is a duplex store with many interesting products for the home and is  not shy of color and personality with a focus on updated classics.

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.

Wales

The countryside in South Wales oozes an amazing rustic charm. All the textures that come together to give the landscape and structures such a great feel. Such wonderful inspiration from a beautiful country.

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
