The High Point Market wrapped last week, and it was an amazing whirlwind! I was so happy to see how well my new CR Laine collection of upholstery was received – the showroom was packed and the orders were being written at lightning speed!
For those of you who weren’t able to attend the market, I know I’ve teased you for weeks about the three color stories that we showcased – Blushing Beauty, City Sophisticate, and Drama Queen – so I thought I would show you each collection. This week, we’ll look at the Blushing Beauty group – featuring the fashion-forward blush color!
I loved mixing the sweet blush color with the tangy citron, which gave it a nice balance and kept it from going too feminine or “precious.” In the group above, you see the Julianne sofa, the Helen slipper chair, the Lena ottoman, and the Stella screen. I also designed the blush table with gold leaf with a fabulous company called Woodbridge Furniture. It was so much fun to work with them, that I might just have to do it again!
The Julianne is a Sheraton-style sofa, but unlike the vintage design, this one is super-comfortable! And I love the details here, like the starburst pattern on the nailhead trim of the screen, and the Greek key carvings on the base of both the slipper chair and the ottoman. The art above the sofa is part of my new collection with Soicher Marin, another fabulous partner!
This bedroom area in the CR Laine showroom was a big hit! We had quite a few people who said they wanted to pick up this vignette and put the whole thing in their own bedrooms at home! The Lucy upholstered bed and the leather Beverly bench are both from my collection with CR Laine, and the art is from my Soicher Marin line. I’m also really appreciative of partners who allowed us to borrow product to finish off our looks – like the lamps from Currey & Company, the mirror from Mirror Image, rug from Surya, the bedding from Eastern Accents, and the bedside tables from Woodbridge.
The Lucy is fully upholstered all the way to the floor with no boxing wooden foot, which gives it such a luxurious look! And that blush leather on the Beverly bench was to-die-for!
I loved the Blushing Beauty group in my Tobi Fairley for CR Laine collection, and I am so happy that it was a success at market! I can’t wait to see it in stores in just a few weeks, and in people’s homes! I’m already planning to put these designs in some of my own new projects.
Next week, I’ll show you the City Sophisticate group. And if you want to take the quiz to see which group fits your personality, just click here!
