I'm still continuing to receive great pix of the Drexel Heritage showroom last week's events. Had to share, as some of these are just sensational. When High Point Market rolls around the Coco Chanel tip "take one accessory off" rule need not apply when it comes to stylizing the showrooms. Merchandising is at a maximum and stylists use this as an opportunity to pull out all the stops.

Beyond the accessories... I always love the fabric selections they choose at Drexel. There's always a hint of curiosity there as I wonder how they imagined that combination and executed it so beautifully on their upholstery. Chintz and leather? Punchy florals and menswear stripes? Somehow they make the unimaginable combinations work.

Look closely: do you see what I see? Is fringe back? I'm thinking so. Big fringe. While we're on the subject or details, contrasting welt is coming at us full force this fall. It looks like we could all use a little decorative edging in our lives and living rooms.

In terms of color, Drexel offered two extremes. Deep saturation on one hand. Pale monochromatic colorways on the other. And the key things we can't ignore is that the rising star of the industry is the chair. Not the front. Not the cushion... but the sides and back. More on this in a future post. Not the circular wood frame on the chair above. Baby got back in a big way.

Up soon... some peeks at the Lane Venture showroom.

What the beautiful people are saying...

Something to say, gorgeous?
