During our visit to High Point Market this year there seemed to be a trend that we saw in almost every show room that we visited. Acrylic. Chairs, tables, lamps, it was everywhere and we are loving it.
It is a material that is fun to mix and match with other textures and styles. For example these stools/ottomans with the fur seats. The contrast of the two very different materials, acrylic vs. fur, makes for a surprisingly attractive combination. Acrylic is a fun change from traditional metal or wood frames and bases. In terms of sustainability it is 100% recyclable and has a very long lifespan.
This retro-modern look goes well even in some of the more rustic settings that we are used to here in Western North Carolina. Here is an example of a bench that we did for a client that turned out very nice. It is the perfect fit to give character to an otherwise unused hallway space
We hope to see more of it soon and look forward to using it in future projects!
Our client’s wanted a unique headboard for their master bedroom. Cheryl coordinated with Appalachian Hardwood to source a live edge slab for the project (photo A). Because of the extreme weight of the slab (over 300 pounds), custom brackets were needed to secure the headboard to the wall. Todd Miller, with Scream Hot Iron crafted the custom brackets and installed the headboard (photos B, C, D, and E). Bedding by Fino Lino and pillows by Surya complete the look(photo F).
Baldwin Art is one of Cheryl’s favorite art vendors. Baldwin’s great customer service includes bring the art truck to your door!
Cheryl, Emma, and our client’s browsed the art on the truck and selected pieces for their home. To see what Baldwin Art has available visit baldwinartgroup.com.
