Classic combinations like navy and white can feel totally fresh when you mix, match and layer patterns. In this example from the Thibaut showroom, a small scale geometric upholstery plays off a big, bold large scale wallpaper while the solid pillow with light piping grounds the whole look..
We saw wing chairs everywhere at Market - they are definitely back in a big way. This one features the just-announced partnership between John Robshaw and Cisco - a strong pairing of pattern and construction.
Given pride of place at the start of Thibaut's showroom, this brand new pattern called Sulu (available in both wallpaper and fabric in the Montery collection) sings in this just a little bit unexpected version of the classic red, yellow and blue primary color combo.
In addition to the all the sofas and chairs we road-tested while at Market, we gave a few mattresses a try. At Simmons we tried out four lines and their "Black" series is top of the line. They are blinged out, not crazy expensive and comfy.
We visited a lot of mattress companies this past weekend at the High Point Market, but this little spot took the cake in terms of great, smart, funny advertising. The timing and deadpan quality are perfect. Check it out. :)
