Design Jolt At High Point Market 2017

Sometimes you have to break the rules or should I say the norm.   Saturday morning, I was off to the airport to High Point Market.  I felt a little guilty leaving soon after my daughter’s junior prom the night before.  A little voice inside my head was screaming design.  With an invite from Robert Allen Fabric, Duralee and the fabulous gentlemen at Madcap Cottage, Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke, it was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.

My day at High Point Market began by checking in at the media center and leaving my luggage for storage.  Stop one:  The Hickory Chair showroom to celebrate the launch of the debut collection of David Phoenix and the 30th Anniversary of Veranda.

Stop two:  The home of Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke.  The dynamic team graciously invited guests into their home in celebration of their new fabric line and the merger of Duralee and Robert Allen Fabrics to form the Robert Allen Duralee Group (The RADGroup).

Jason and John have made a home with exquisite fabrics, furniture and vintage pieces and antiques from their travels.   It was eye candy overload and I loved it!   How do they do it?

Jason and John have created a formula on mixing pattern that is both colorful, fun and elegant.  Recently, they have put their signature style inside the bed and breakfast Pandora’s Manor, a historic home built in 1905, which received a makeover by the design industry’s hottest talent.

Up at 5:00 a.m. and ready for day two at High Point Market, I hit the ground running.  I will be posting more photos and finds.  It was wonderful to see friends and be a part of the design community.  A fresh jolt of design is just what I needed to start a few projects.

Thanks for stopping by.
