High Point Market – New and Noteworthy Lines Debuting Spring 2014

High Point Market, Spring 2014

High Point Market is always a whirlwind, and although a big portion of my five days at this last market was spent attending to my duties as an official High Point Market Style Spotter and shopping for clients, I did manage to explore a little and found some great new resources making their debut at High Point Market.

Iron Thread Design

First on the list is Iron Thread Design, a  charming husband and wife team who fashion tufted benches, ottomans, daybeds, and headboards out of  solid vinyl upholstery which are accented with an assorted medley of print covered buttons.  One can customize their selection by choosing between diamond or square tufting, straight or scroll sides, and either metal hairpin, Texian dark or light wood legs.  The consumer also has the choice of using their own prints or using  prints from the Iron Thread Design’s own collection. If I had a daughter, I would love to create something with a mix of vibrant fuchsia, orange, turq and lime print buttons on white upholstery…

The underside of the benches, ottomans, and daybeds are covered in a contrast print (but each and every one is a surprise and is done at the discretion of the folks at Iron Thread Design- fun!) Each piece of Iron Thread Furniture is handcrafted to order in Austin, TX by Sheri Bingham and her husband Christian – the cutest, most entertaining couple at High Point Market.

B. Pila Design

Spring 2014 also marked the arrival of Miami based B. Pila Design at High Point Market.  Beautiful hair-on-hide upholstered lounge chairs combined with ultra-chic lucite frames and bases.  This fashionable chair pictured below was the most comfortable spot in Interhall – I could have sat in this chair for hours!

The Helena, pictured below, was one of my Style Spotter picks – I especially love the thick lucite block feet and how the lucite frame wraps around the back.   Again, it was incredibly comfortable.

Available in an assortment of natural and over-dyed hides in a fresh assortment of colors from Edelman Leather. Also noteworthy from B. Pila Design is their selection of lucite cocktail and occasional tables from the Hide and Seek Collection.

The Levitas table which cleverly integrated the  lucite leg design into the table top, was also one of my favorites.

Mirth Studio

Charleston, SC based Mirth Studio was another goldmine of a discovery. The latest in print technology is used to print owner and designer Sally Bennett’s hand painted designs on wood parquet tile.  One gets the look of hand painted wood tile (it really is difficult to tell that it is a print and not actual hand painting) and can configure or customize any design – all without the added time and expense of hand painting.  12″ x 12″  1/2″ thick engineered hard wood tiles of oak or hickory  are printed and then pre-finished with 10 coats of abrasion-resistant, crystal clear UV- hardened 100% resin urethane.  They even come with a 25 year guarantee for residential use!

As one who adores color, I have to say that when I laid eyes on the wood tile at Mirth Studio, my imagination ran wild thinking of all the possibilities! Mirth Studio-High Point Market Spring 2014

Mitchell Black Home

Last but not least, is Mitchell Black.  Ok, this is not their first High Point Market – it is their second.  But the people at Mitchell Black are so awesome (as is the product that they put out), that I had to feature them again.  I fell in love with the Mitchell Black line the very first time I saw the collection last July at Las Vegas Market.  I have kept an eye on them since and know that they are bound for great things.

Mitchell Black was formed in 2012 from a collection of vintage etchings.  These etchings were then screen printed in a variety of colors and then placed in a unique lucite frame in which  the print seems to be floating.  Images from the past recreated in modern colors and set in a modern lucite frame.  Mitchell Black is where the “past meets the present”.

I also carry several of Mitchell Black’s images on my online shop and anything you see in these photos can also be special ordered, so head on over to the shop for a peek.

Please note that some of the resources listed above are to the trade only.  Should you have any questions or need assistance purchasing, feel free to contact me as I can certainly help.  Enjoy!
