Now for my final Fall High Point Market 2009 coverage, I'll bring you to the funnest place there ~ Interhall. Interhall is located on the first floor of the IHFC building ~ this biggest building in Market. In Interhall, there are isles and isles one walks up and down much like an outdoor artisan market. There are some heavy hitters there, like Barclay Butera, but also smaller companies that don't really need or want to pay for a full size showroom. It's almost competitive with creativity ~ 'how can I stop folks in their tracks and entice them to come inside?' Well here's who caught my eye and I ended up inside.
The next seven photos are from Natural Curiosities. The name says it all. Inside there are so many interesting things to look at, to place in clients' homes to add that special creative touch.
Barry Dixon had a few of these in his Green Show House.
Very cool shelves with words of wisdom to inspire.
How wonderful is this?!! One may display in a three dimensional manner pages from well loved books or love letters from an old flame... anything paper that you love!
You saw these before. Still loving it especially for pillows and small ottomans. Very, very FUN!
This photo is from Halo Styles. The base is a propeller from a large boat. They had several items that were repurposed from that boat ~ how green!
Halo Style ~ gorgeous carved mirror.
You also saw this ~ lovely texture, bold feminine designs ~ fantastic!
Luna Bella ~ wonderfully different lighting. You saw the pendants. Here are a chandelier and a floor lamp.
This floor lamp will need some space but it is spectacular. Two of them flanking almost anything (sofa, bed, my husband) would be something special to see.
That concludes my High Point extravaganza. For one day ~ I did alright ~ if I do say so myself!
