ATLANTA MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

I always love bring back in my hometown but there is so much to see and so little time!  A sprint through the Atlanta Home and Gift Show last week yielded these fabulous finds. Here are my highlights from the show…

TIMES TWO DESIGN

The large scaled stunning agate lamps by Laura Renfrow would make a statement in any interior.

R. LUSK

Available in 24 different colors and 14 different patterns, the designs from R. Lusk are painstakingly gilded and antiqued, mounted on linen wrapped boxes and framed in acrylic. The variety of sizes, shapes, colors and patterns makes them easily adaptable for any space.

EMPORIUM HOME

Every piece by Ashley Childers is a work of art…her agate burst sconce in brass is glamorous, modern and sculptural.  More to come on the new introductions in an upcoming post!

MITCHELL BLACK

The new introductions by Mitchell Black featured all of my favorite things…zebras, pagodas, and shells. Mitchell Black is a nod to the past with a focus on the present. The antique etchings can be re-sized and  printed in 17 designer colors and mounted in a modern acrylic format.

WAYLANDE GREGORY

Instantly recognizable, the work of legendary Waylande Gregory is refined and highly stylized. One of the early creators of the American Bauhaus movement, he worked alongside the great minds of the 20th century at Cranbrook Academy including Frank Lloyd Wright, Florence Knoll, Ray and Charles Eames and the Saarinens. The black, white and gold decorative items introduced at Codarus looks just as fresh today and when they were first created.

HIGH POINT HIGHLIGHTS: LIGHTING

11,500,000 square feet of exhibition space, 2000 vendors representing 100 countries, and 180 buildings in 4 days…

See what caught my eye at High Point Market.

Catherine M. Austin Interior Design/ Louise Gaskill

Lighting is like the jewelry of the room.  Without proper pieces that sparkle and shine, the room does not feel complete. In the same way a fine painting or antique can elevate everything else in the room, exquisite lighting can do the same. Each of these finds is a work of art based on craftsmanship and the inspiration behind each piece.

The pink lamps above are by Louise Gaskill who creates one of kind lamps from vintage Murano glass.  The shape and color of each piece of glass determines the final silhouette of the lamp. Here, Louise’s imagination took light turning two pink fluted orbs into modern lamps with a slight Chinoiserie influence seen in the bamboo rings and asian inspired bases.

The collaboration between Niermann Weeks and Visual Comfort produced this crystal and brass masterpiece.  The feather like arms capture and reflect the light beautifully.

IMG_3700

Sklo Studio began as the brainchild of an American artist and architect and a Czech glassblower to pursue a new vision of hand blown Bohemian crystal. Each market, I have been enchanted by their work that brings a modern aesthetic to a historic craft tradition. Each piece is unique in that the nature of the glass and the details of the process are revealed in each piece.

The quartz point lamp from Times Two Design provides a wow factor for any room. The brass base and gilt lined shade make it even more glamorous. . Lauren Renfrow  elevates the natural beauty of elements from the earth to artisan levels using acrylic and other embellishments. Her company focuses on creating entirely handmade items that are limited edition and totally unique.

IMG_4134The highly anticipated lighting line from Kelly Wearstler at Visual Comfort attracted a huge crowd!  Lines formed outside the showroom for fans to catch a glimpse of Kelly and see her collection. Brass was her material of choice and each piece possessed a signature sculptural quality seen in many of her designs.

The lovely ladies at Taylor Burke Home had many great market introductions including their first foray into lighting.  The 2 pendant styles can be customized in any color in a 36” and 20” diameter.  The pierced fretwork is an ingenious repeat of their logo.  Both styles have riveted nailheads defining the edges for a sleek look. These native Carolinians travel the world for their inspiration. All of their products are made in the USA and eco-friendly.

The Natural Light Company debuted a collection of cast metal lamps of aluminum inspired by nature. Here, ginkgo leaves are interpreted larger in size and arranged so that each leaf is placed as though standing on the shoulders of lower leaves. The metallic finish adds a sophisticated touch to any space.

Catherine M. Austin Interior Design/ Arteriors

Jewelry details were everywhere at this market from cabinetry hardware to this pendant from Arteriors that resembles a gold cuff bracelet.

New Orleans native Michael Clément specializes in ceramic, hand crafted lamps and interior accessories. Each piece reflects his aesthetic of classical and traditional forms, and finishes that evoke the veneer of the city. This collection was inspired by the climate and culture New Orleans has in creating a patina of time. The collection features handmade lamps, hand sculpted and hand-thrown bowls enhanced with rich colors and distinctive finishes.

These handfolded plexiglass pendants from Oggetti Luce appear as if they are ready to take flight. The light they emit and shadows they cast have a magical quality.  Hung together in various colors looked like an art installation.

dunes

The colorful world of Dunes and Duchess is the brainchild of photographer Michael Partino and stylist/writer Stacey Kunstel. All pieces are handmade in the USA in a myriad of colors. Their collection of lighting and furniture is an extension of this delightful couple that are the perfect combination of creativity, authenticity, and whimsy.

Design icon Celerie Kemble displayed her Brutalist 36” diameter gilt pendant holding court over one of her gorgeous vignettes at Henredon.

The wall of sconces at Wesley Hall showed the countless customizations of the Robert Abbey Williamsburg Lightfoot Sconce. Here the 3 metal finishes (nickel, brass and bronze) are shown with various nailhead patterns and come in a variety of leather and fabric upholstered backplates.

IMG_3749

North Carolina based artist Tommy Mitchell incorporated his metal flowers into several new table lamps and sconces.  This was my favorite which is actually a stalk of brussel sprouts reincarnated in gilt metal.

IMG_4032

I always look forward to seeing the colorful creations of Ro Sham Beaux. Their customization abilities and variety of styles make it a designer’s dream for a lighting line. The carnelian red beads are a new introduction and definitely on trend with all of the other touches of red seen throughout High Point.
