An Inspiring Show and Partner

Posted by

Hi, everyone! I’m spending this weekend at the amazing High Point Market, the world’s largest home furnishings trade show located in North Carolina. And today is a busy day for me! I’m speaking with the editors of Southern Living and Coastal Living today about how designers can get their work published in shelter magazines, and then at 4pm I will be at a fabulous cocktail event with my new partner C.R. Laine!

I love coming to High Point Market because it’s full of color, style, and inspiration! It is honestly like Fashion Week for those of us in the home world. And this is the first market that I’m also dipping into the exhibitor side of the show!

Next April, I will debut my first upholstered furniture line with C.R. Laine, an absolutely amazing partner! As a start to our partnership, I designed the bistro area in the newly expanded showroom for C.R. Laine on the 2nd floor of 310 N. Hamilton. I went with a striking black-and-white palette, with bright splashes of kelly green in the chairs.

What really sets the sophisticated tone in this space is an amazing new product from Soicher Marin. Wall Couture is a customizable wall covering that is also reusable! I designed the paneled look you see here – and they have hundreds of designs in their High Point Market showroom at C&D, space 1B/1C. Wall Couture can be applied to any smooth or semi-smooth surface, so I may have to try this on some doors and shelves in the future.


I am so excited to embark on this new collaborative and creative partnership with C.R. Laine! It was thrilling to design their new Bistro as our first project together. We will be giving a few of their VIP clients some sneak peeks of the product this market. Exciting, right? And I can’t wait to unveil the designs to all of you next spring!

In the meantime, if you’re at High Point Market stop by and see the new C.R. Laine Bistro and their newly expanded showroom. Also don’t miss Soicher Marin’s Wall Couture - and be sure to notice ALL the artwork in C.R. Laine, because it is expertly created by Soicher Marin.

Until then, I’m off for more inspiration!









The Hampton Designer Showhouse: Soicher Marin

Posted by


When I was putting together my design for the Hampton Designer Showhouse, I was looking for the perfect set of prints to hang in the room.  Size, color, content.  I had a definite vision for what I wanted.  A coral background to match the stipes on the ceiling.  A chinoiserie feel to complement the F. Schumacher fabric used on the bed, wing chair and drapery.  Where did I turn?  That’s easy – Soicher Marin.  My go-to source for amazing custom prints.  Didn’t these turn out amazing?!?!

Here’s an up close look at just one of the prints in the series.  If you’re a designer, Soicher Marin has an amazing library of images.  Tell them what you want and they will work with you to make your ideas come to life!  I couldn’t do the work I do without their talent and expertise.

If you’re not a designer, they offer their standard line for purchase online.  Be sure to visit their website and check out the MANY beautiful collections from Soicher Marin!

And if you get the chance, be sure to visit the Hampton Designer Showhouse in Bridgehampton, New York.  The house will be open until September 4!

Tobi’s Tastemaker Tips with One Kings Lane part 2

Posted by

My One Kings Lane Tastemaker Tag Sale is still going strong with some great buys waiting for you. There is some especially good-looking art work that hasn’t been claimed and so I wanted to show you some inspiration for how you might use some of these great pieces in your home…

This Elle Decor feature has always been at the top of my inspiration list when it comes to artwork! Those red frames rock (in my color-loving opinion).

And these handsome pieces from my Richmond Showhouse remind me of that exact look. They would look fab with art lights over them in a hallway, or even hanging on bookshelves. And for one lucky buyer, they are still available for the taking.

Those of you who know my work, know that I am mad about using series of artwork to make a statement. Here are a few examples of where I have done just that for a “wow” factor in a room.

If you love this look, more good news is that you can still get some other great high-end artwork series on my One Kings Lane Tastemaker Tag Sale at fantastic prices! Here are some of the gorgeous choices…

These beauties are embroidery on linen in mirrored frames…breath-taking don’t you think? These babies are 1/2 off retail so are quite a steal for the quality and look.

I especially love this series, since green is my favorite color. They sort of remind me of the pieces I used to flank this fireplace over two chests.

Here’s a close-up for great view of how the green can “pop” on a neutral wall.

These real sea fans in orange with an orange accent mat, are great for a softer shot of color and a lot of great texture. I used a set of them in a study recently with gorgeous results!

And if you are a fan of my Energy house project featured last fall in Traditional Home, then you will love these orange and aqua pieces. You’ll be right on trend infusing these popular colors in your home!

So if you are looking for some great art for your home. Hurry over to One Kings Lane and grab some of these gorgeous pieces. You’ll be glad you did!

And one more thing not to miss is today’s guest post on All-American curb appeal with Debra from 5th & State blog. See her gorgeous post below!

Tobi’s Tastemaker Tips with One Kings Lane

My One Kings Lane Tastemaker Tagsale has been a great success so far! But you are not too late to get some of my very favorite things for your own home. Here are a few of my favorite rooms I’ve designed, and you can still pick up some pieces to bring these looks to your place!

I am crazy about my Trowbridge art hanging over my sofa.  It was just featured in the May issue of Traditional Home.

There is a pair of these gorgeous mirrored framed art pieces from London still available and priced at half off retail.  Wouldn’t they look great in a powder room or over a chest?

Another of my favorite things is my collection of framed coins from Soicher Marin hanging on my family room bookshelves.  I have been asked a million times what these are and where I got them.

And there is a fab set of 8 just waiting for you in my Tastemaker Tag Sale today at a steal of a price!

This Showhouse Den is a favorite of many, including my friendScot Meacham Wood.

I especially loved the chair in that gorgeous Clarence House fabric and the handsome etagere behind it from Hickory Chair.

Don’t miss out on these two pieces for your home. The chair by Lee Industries is especially comfy!

My Richmond Symphony Orchestra Showhouse space was so well received.  In fact, it was just featured last week in the Huffington post.

The look is very colorful as a whole, but any one of these pieces could make a great splash of color to accent a neutral room too!

Do you spy my all-time favorite wing chair by Barclay Butera in my all-time fabric wool sateen fabric by Highland Court back there?

Well, here’s a closer look at it.

Several of the Showhouse pieces have already sold out today, but these great pieces are still there for the taking at the moment (if you hurry!). And how versatile is that great coffee table, right?

I hope you will check out these and the other fantastic items still available in my Tastemaker Tag Sale.  Visit the One Kings Lane site to purchase them before someone else does!

And a big, huge “Thank You” to all of you who have already bought items from my sale! xo, Tobi
