One of my BFFs from college, Amy Beaupré, works for D.C. based interior design company, Bossy Color, owned by designer Annie Elliot. I was so thrilled when the Bossy Color team (Annie, Amy and Christy) spent some time with me last weekend at High Point Market. In the middle of their tour through the immense furniture market, they stopped by to see my new collection with Capel Rugs. Instead of letting them speak to a proper representative, I took the very sweet Bossy Color on a hilarious 20 minute rag tag tour through the Capel Rug collection randomly pointing out only the rugs I loved. I was so honored when during the my haphazard tour through the Capel showroom, the Bossy Color team asked to see my own rug collection. It was a proud moment to take one of my dearest friends, Amy, through my very own rug collection. Amy and her colleagues were so sweet and complimentary. I appreciated their kindness. As quickly as I was proud, we then proceeded to gab for far too long about what we loved the most at market.
Since I was only in Hight Point, NC for one day to stand at the Capel Rugs showroom meeting buyers, designers and press, I did not have time to tour the market. So I asked the Bossy Color team to send me their best market picks…
Here are Bossy Color’s top 5 picks from HP Market:
“This chair is about as glam as bossy color gets, but it’s surprisingly versatile — and comfortable! We saw it in an amazing grass green chenille, but in a more neutral fabric, it would add modern sophistication to a library or living room.”
2. “Also at the CR Laine showroom, we saw an incredibly cool — and very bossy! — custom wallcovering made by Black Crow Studios. We can’t wait to find the right spot for it. We met Tracy Hiner, who was great and showed us more amazing photos of Black Crow Studios’ work.”
“This adorable piece is a new release for the fall, and we noticed over our three days a new trend in lighting: table lamps 21″ H or shorter. These accent lamps are perfect for small spaces, including powder rooms, small tables and desks, bookshelves, and nooks.”
“Kenian Fine Rattan furniture was a happy discovery. Their painted gold console table stopped us in our tracks! The best thing about rattan furniture is that it never goes out of style. The bossy color team loved the special custom paint option, which is available on certain pieces of furniture, such as this console and other, smaller tables.”
5. Pendant light (Couture — so new it’s not on their website yet!)
“This three-tier pendant light was a delightful find. We think it can go from elegant to fun…the shiny blue finish just made us happy!”
