Trends were literally around every corner and in every showroom at Spring Market! Trends that were prominent and really stood out to me include metals, mixed materials, textures, and organic forms. Read on to see a few of my favorite products that fit the bill for each of these themes.

One of my all-time favorite products, the below Thibaut console is shown with a gold metal base and customizable with grasscloth. Talk about swoon-worthy!



Next up, is a designer favorite from Currey & Company. This elegant light fixture is a dramatic organic form that emulates gold tree-like branches. How enchanting!

The third and final product in this brief recap of a few of my Spring Market highlights comes from Artistica. Who doesn’t love a capiz shell inlay top?  The top graduates to a center sunburst pattern sitting on a hand-forged iron base in a champagne foil finish with a tempered inset glass shelf below.  The mixing of metal, glass and capiz shells is simply perfect.




Thank you for following along to see a small sampling of some of the AMAZING products I found at market. I'm absolutely positive that these products will make my clients extremely happy!
