Top 8 Picks From Vegas Market

It is with great excitement (and a motherly dose of pride) that I introduce you to my daughter, Jillian.  Jill has been my blogmaster extraordinaire since the inception of our blog.  She’s decided to take an even more active role in the company, and pursue her own extended degree in Interior Design.  Jill and I just returned from Las Vegas Market and I asked her to author this week’s feature blog.  So, Jill, here you go…

As you may have seen, Susan and I had a great time at the Las Vegas Market this summer!  We saw some of our favorite brands and designers, as well as met several new artists and familiarized ourselves with their work.   It was so inspiring to us to see so many of these collections, and wanted to take a moment to share with you some of our favorites!

 

1.  Feather Chandelier by Visual Comfort Lighting

This chandelier grabbed our attention almost instantly because of its unique and delicate nature.  We LOVE this chandelier so much, that we may even use it for a client here who loves this Gatsby-style, early 1900’s design!

2.  Marilyn Chair by Global Views

This one has been a favorite of Susan’s for a while, but seeing it in the showroom at Global Views was great to feel how smooth and heavy this chair is despite its light, airy look.  This is a great quality chair, and way more comfortable than it looks!

3.  Xaviera Stool by Christopher Guy

The showroom we were most excited to see was admittedly Christopher Guy.  The way that he designs his products is so unusual, that it creates a true feast for your senses just experiencing his artwork.  This stool was one of our favorites because of its classic, practical, yet signature look.  We think it would look great at a bar or counter to add just a little pizazz to your space with that elegant cross in back.

4.  Ocean-Inspired Chandeliers from Currey & Company

When we are looking for fun, funky, yet great quality lighting, Currey & Company is one of our go-to brands.  Their showroom at Market dazzled with their many ocean-inspired pieces, including these gorgeous chandeliers with sea shells and sea glass!  Any of these would be the perfect choice for a beach house- I could definitely see us showing one off in our Cape house this summer!

5.  Kharaa Pouf by Surya

Everywhere we went, it seemed that this look was taking over Market!  Furry chairs, pillows, sofas, poufs… you name it!  We loved the pouf and pillows by Surya because of how soft they were to the touch, yet we loved this blush color for more practical reasons over the stark white that has become so popular.  This would definitely be a bit more forgiving in a busy home, and oh so inviting to cozy up to!

6.  Chelsea Desk by Bungalow 5

Mirrored furniture can really expand the appearance of a room (see our post, Make Your Room Appear Bigger…WITHOUT Remodeling!), and this Chelsea Desk did just that.  It was paired with bright, vibrant oranges in the showroom that made the desk just sparkle.  If you love a contemporary style, this is the desk for you!

7.  Indoor/Outdoor Furniture by POLaRT Designs

Yes, you are seeing this correctly.  POLaRT Designs makes indoor/outdoor furniture that looks like THIS!  How fun!!  We had never seen anything like this, and were enthralled to hear all about their products and how easy the care is!  These chairs would be just so fun in the right space, don’t you think?

8.   Pillows by Langdon Ltd.

One of my personal favorites from Market was meeting Phoebe from Langdon Ltd. and learning about her gorgeous textiles.  They are all hand woven, and of wonderful quality.  We got a few pillows to try out in our West Coast office, where they will be the perfect addition to the sunny, laid back style of California.  We can’t wait to show them off!

Showstopper Lighting

I’m always on the look-out for one-of-a-kind and unique design inspirations.  So, a couple of weeks ago my daughter, Jillian, visited the Old Hickory Whiskey Bar in Pensacola, Fl and was SO impressed with their unique lighting!!  The lighting was so fun she said we had to do a blog on “Showstopper Lighting”.  So, here we go…… from liquor bottles to fish swimming in the shadows, from jellyfish suspended in air to felted fuchsia chandeliers, we want to share our FAVORITES with you!!!

 

Liquor Bottle Pendants at Old Hickory

These lights are one of the most creative fixtures I’ve seen yet.  When you walk into the Old Hickory Whiskey Bar, you’ll find old whiskey casks, bags of rye hanging from the walls, and gorgeous vintage seating to lounge and enjoy your cocktail.  Hanging above these beautiful armchairs and sofas are empty decanters arranged in several different circles to create gorgeous unique lighting in their lounge area.  If you don’t notice these fixtures at first, you certainly won’t miss the bottles of Jack Daniels lit up across the bar!

Naturally, my first question was how in the world did they do this?!  Katie Garrett, the owner of Old Hickory, said that they had these chandeliers custom made from the same artists on Etsy from whom she bought the hanging pendants over the bar.  We always love one of a kind, artisan pieces, but this one definitely takes the cake for most creative!!!

Shoal Collection by Scabetti

The Shoal Collection by Scabetti is not only unique lighting, but true artistry.  Each fish is completely hand made, sculpted and detailed from fine bone china.  These custom lighting fixtures can range from enormous lobby pieces to tabletop lamps, depending on your needs and style.  The way that Scabetti uses lighting to refract from one fish onto the other creates this absolutely stunning schooling effect, for lighting that truly comes alive!

“Medusae” Collection by Roxy Russell

We may have a bit of a soft spot for marine décor, but there is NO denying that this jellyfish inspired collection is truly breathtaking.  I love that they can be hung as pictured in a line, or why not arrange them in a circle for more of a chandelier effect?  I think I need these in my Cape house ASAP!

Bespoke Lighting by Katelyn Aslett

WOW!  These hand-crafted, hand-dyed light fixtures are made from felted wool and designed by artist Katelyn Aslett.  Here is another gorgeous artisan piece that is honestly unlike anything I have ever seen!  I would LOVE to see these lighting installations in person to truly appreciate the vibrant colors and textures that stand out so beautifully!
