Top 25 Favorite Design Finds from High Point Market

Whew! Talk about an insane week in High Point! We returned from the market hardly a week ago, and we’re still recovering from three long days of nonstop browsing, talking, Instagramming (is that a verb?), workshopping, and browsing some more.

It was exhausting but AMAZING.

If you followed along with our Instagram Stories, I’d like to thank you for accompanying us on our  trip! ;)

If you didn’t see the stories, don’t worry. I’m including some of my favorite finds, although truth be told, it’s been nearly impossible to narrow them down. To keep my design love in check, I’m limiting my sharing to these categories...

  • Chairs

  • Lighting

  • Wall & table decor

  • Sofas

Alright, let’s take a look at some of these beauties!

The Best Chair Designs of High Point Market…

...in my humble opinion!

I fell in love with not one, but TWO chairs with caning. Look how sophisticated and tasteful caning is. There’s no other word for it… it’s a timeless classic.

Indoor or out, this chair is simply divine. Doesn’t it call out to you with promises of rest and relaxation? That’s a call I’ll happily answer.

I came. I saw. I purchased!

Keep your eyes peeled for this beautiful bar stool in one of our upcoming design reveals.

The backs of these chairs… creative, classy, coastal. Need I say more?

Whoa! This stunning chair stole the show in its little corner of High Point Market. I can’t vouch for comfort, but it is undoubtedly fab!

burl-wood-high-point-market-stephanie-kraus-designs.jpg

I love effortless details, like the grain in this burl wood. When natural materials have a character of their own, it can elevate the whole design. Yes, please.

There is something about the back of this chair that leaves me speechless. Some beauty can’t be described in words. Just take a moment to admire this one for me, please.

When you’re done, let’s take a look at some upholstered chairs...

This chair completely took me by surprise. When the seat fabric doesn’t match the chair fabric, I usually cringe… but this one I’m actually on board with! Elegantly done.

french-macaroon-inspired-chair-high-point-market-stephanie-kraus-design.jpg

This chair reminds me a bit of a French macaroon: delicate, layered, and oh so pretty.

This stunner had my mind going crazy with design ideas. Picture this chair in a suave gentleman’s den, a home library, or let it star in a bright white living room. See? There’s no bad situation!

The Best Pendants, Lamp & Chandelier from High Point Market

The subtly curving wood beads are beautiful on this lamp, but the whole scene is a work of art too. Textured neutrals are my jam.

Here’s another piece that had my inner designer in a frenzy. You know I love lighting (blog post on this topic coming in the near future!) and you know I love lighting with tasteful wooden beads...

Enter, beautiful black beaded chandelier, and I think I’m in love.

Can you picture this in an all-white room?? Two words: Show. Stopper.

In my IG Stories, I asked whether you liked this gold-framed pendant in white or black. Black won! I have to agree that it has a bit more character and charisma than the white. Nice choice. ;)

You may have noticed a wood-inspired theme with most of these picks so far. This dome pendant is the last one, so enjoy it! I love how the design mixes a glamorous polished nickel with the wood’s casual feel. Fun but classy.

Creative Wall & Table Decor from High Point Market

These beautiful galleries caught my eyes as soon as I passed them. Black and white + moody blues + touches of gold = right up my alley! You know me.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall… in which client’s home will you appear this fall? (You’ll find out!)

This feathery plant is called pampas grass and was EVERYWHERE at High Point Market this fall. I love the whimsical touch it adds to a space.

Another scene that words won’t do justice. Just observe. Everything about this is Yes.

A Few Fave Sofas from High Point Market

I love it when the process of making the design becomes part of the design. The stitching on this chair is beautiful — as a design element on its own and as an ode to its craftsman!

More trim details that I just love. There’s something about a dark trim on a light piece of furniture that looks so clean and classic. I saw quite a bit of this style at the market. Top notch.

Alright, that’s it for my finds from this year — thanks for journeying through these with me!

I know it’s difficult, but if you had to pick one, which is your favorite??

Beach House Master Bedroom/Bath and Guest Room Before and Afters

Happy holidays! 

If you missed my previous beach house posts you can go

To jog your memory this house was decorated on a VERY TIGHT budget so my goal with the bedrooms was to include one item with impact in each space that would make it special and specific to each family member.

First up is the master bedroom. My clients wanted something un-cluttered, simple, modern and fresh.

Here is the Master Bedroom before

Here is the after

Throw by lemlem

The art was the main element in this space. I loved my clients piece that we hung next to the modern canopy bed. We kept everything else simple and clean.

Here's the master bath before

After

We glazed over the red marble-meat colored tile by glazing it all white and replaced the cabinetry, painted the walls a light gray and accented with navy. Done. Simple and clean.

Guest Bedroom Before

The After

Bold banana leaf fabric by Bassett McNabb

Robert Abbey table lamp

pillows and headboard designed custom by SKDesigns

As you could probably guess the main design element in this space was this fabulous headboard and pillows designed in this bold, large scale pattern.

To recap

Rooms that are simple, clean yet fun and kind to the wallet:)

One last thought...

Thanks so much for reading my blog this year! and
