Century Furniture’s Ron Fiore

Last October Timothy Corrigan, one of the world’s top interior designers  introduced me to  to the rock star of furniture  showroom design, Ron Fiore. When I toured the Century Furniture Showroom during the April  High Point Furniture Market  I was not disappointed! Leslie Hendrix Wood, a Style Spotter for the High Point Furniture , interviewed Ron for her blog, Hadley Court.

Small Spaces with Candice Olson furniture

Hi Everyone!  Your DESIGNER INTERPRETER, Cheryl Hucks, is back from the High Point Furniture Market and from working on a fun, exciting design project.  I cannot wait to show you pics of my design adventure!

While at the High Point Furniture Market I saw so many beautiful showrooms!! When visiting the market I take photos that help me interpret why designers use certain metals, furniture and accessories.

You  probably already know the new metal finish goes by the name  soft gold  or brushed gold or antique brass.  It is everyone –even in fashion.  You may have recently purchased  a new necklace with a gold metallic finish or a dress or handbag that is embellished with gold metal.   When Brushed nickel was first introduced as the latest and greatest metal finish, I still used my gold and brass. Shiny brass was popular in the 8Os and it now creeping back into home furnishings. Do not freak out–brushed nickel and polished nickel are still popular. As well as, oiled bronze.

Candice Olson’s Highland House Furniture console has an antique brass nail head trim that is ageless! It is paired with a more sleek no fuss shape and the latest neutral, gray.  The dark wooden top adds the perfect amount of warmth.  Enough about the console table. Let’s talk about the fabulous accessories!  What is your favorite?  The large round “soft gold” trimmed mirror or the pair of candlestick lamps?  I cannot decide!  I will take all three!  To complete the symmetry a pair of mini ottomans were added under the table.  Here you have a perfect example of a Small Space with Big  Design! Wouldn’t this be magnificent on that small wall in the corner that you cannot decide what furniture to use?  Maybe in a foyer or niche.  Do you have the perfect location for this Candice Olson console table? http://www.candiceolson.com/

Charlotte Mirror by Highland House

Charlotte Mirror by Highland House is one of my designer favorites for a traditional style home. Perfect for an English Manor style.  It’s grand scale makes it a stately choice for your foyer, hallway or dressing area. Placed opposite a window the reflected light will brighten your home.  A few months ago I wanted to hang one of my mirrors on a different wall.  I must admit I did a “designer no no”!  I did not consider  what would reflect in the mirror!  You are right, I moved the mirror again and this time I checked the images in the mirror.

Bunny Williams by Century Furniture

At the High point Spring Furniture 2014 I fell in love with this beautiful Bunny Williams outdoor dining table by Century Furniture. The teak pedestal base and aluminum 56″ square top make it perfect for  large or small dining.  In this photo two of the tables have been pushed together so that at least 6 or 8 people could comfortably dine.  If your space is large enough, you could use several for a huge dinner party.  Need more intimate dining or perhaps an outdoor bridge or card party, separate the tables.

More Home Decor Trends 2015

Earlier this week I blogged about two of the latest trends for 2015:  Chinoiserie, Chinese influenced designs, and Shagreen, shark and stingray skin covered furniture and accessories.  In addition to walking through many showrooms at the High Point Furniture Market, I attended three expert Trend Forecaster’s seminars.  Many of the trends were on all the three experts lists but several were only on one expert’s  list.  Here are a few photos of trends that most homeowners may actually use in their own home decor.

Large prints and floral fabrics:  I love how this Century Furniture chair make a bold statement.
