In the vast sea of bankable designers, beautifully appointed furniture showrooms, and fabulous cocktail parties at the High Point Furniture Market, lies some of the most wonderful small vendors with incredible designs. My second post on the “Market” focuses on them!
It’s from these vendors that Boutique Shop Buyers discover that one-of-a-kind vase you will give as a wedding present and Interior Designers find a “knock-out” pendant to go over your dining room table.
First up on our tour is SkLo.
SkLo is the brain child of Pavel Hanousek, founder of Fusion Z, and husband and wife design team, Karen Gilbert and Paul Pavlak. They’ve come together to produce hand-blown glass designs using traditional Czech glass blowing techniques. By the way, Sklo is Czech for glass.
The Hold Vessel & Hook are clean, simple and modern. And since they are handblown, no two vessels look exactly the same.
Imagine having this work of art hanging above your bathroom vanity. Talking about amplifying the mundane!
A sculptural table light that would be perfect for accent lighting on your entry hall table or on your bar. This is bespoke design at it’s best!
Another glass design that I found to be both unique, trend-setting and a great design is the Phantom Dining Table by Glassisimo. I love love this table, but the question is do You love it? After all you are the “end-user”!
While this table is “happening”, trust me, the Phantom Dining Table has more applications than in just a contemporary setting. Put it with the right chairs and it stands out as a one of a kind and sophisticated piece.
The Paramount Extra Large 3-drawer Chest, (Yes, that’s its name.) Certainly made its way onto almost every style-spotter and market blogger list! It certainly earned the bragging rights. It’s show-stopping lacquered painted finish, offset with silver ball pulls and carved facade come together to make it an extraordinary Market find.
Accented with a gold base and gold twig handles, This faux-shagreen dresser is a no-brainer among good Market designs. Oh and guess what? The drawers are self-closing. Neat!
The organic door panels of this teak credenza , by Bevara Design House, gives it 1960’s form, with a splash of ’70’s vibe.
While not a “new” Market item, The Mercer Dining table, made from reclaimed teak, is still one of my favorites. It’s family friendly, stylish and it can go out-doors, under a covered porch. That kind of versatility makes it a safe choice for a great Market design.
It seems that every Market Global Views comes out with one stand-out design. This Market, it’s The Collector Cabinet.
Finally, the mirrored cabinet from Camille House Imports. It would look great against a richly painted wall in your home. Perhaps Benjamin Moore’s Autumn Purple.
So there you have it. A roundup of some of Market’s incredible designs from small vendors that will be making its way to homes around the world soon!
