LVMKT 2019: My FAVS

I wanted to share with some of my favorite pieces that I found at the Las Vegas Market in January. Just for reference, Las Vegas Market is 3 large buildings, with 16 floors each of furniture, decor, accessories and gifts - so you can imagine how overwhelming it can be! Luckily for you, I’ve narrowed it down to a few of my favorites! Read on below for the breakdown on each piece, and why I love it. It wasn’t easy to narrow down all the choices, but I decided to go with the pieces that immediately caught my eye. And I have to admit, I’m trying to figure out ways I can put all of these items in my home!

1. Cosmopolitan Buffet/Cabinet; Bungalow 5, 2. Reva Bar Stool; Interlude 3. Solano Pendant; Palecek 4. Sal Woven Chair; TovFurniture 5. Woodside Canopy Bed; Palecek 6. Brittany Bench; Kim Salmela 7. Kelsey Stool; Interlude 8. Jupiter Chair; NPD 9. Suma Beaded Urn; Palecek

1. grass cloth cabinet

I love the look of this grass-cloth covered cabinet. The two-tone blues, topped with the bright white, and silver detail - I honestly can not get enough. There’s something so special about choosing a dresser or cabinet, or console with some texture. It brings in a little something extra, amps up the drama and is honestly just such a great statement piece. I want!

2. Lucite Bar stool

I mean what is there to say. It’s a lucite barstool! It’s glam, and sexy, and most importantly comfortable! I know because I sat in one of these stools for a presentation during the Las Vegas Market, and I gotta say, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed sitting in it. I love the pop of metal on the legs, which comes in silver or brass. STUH-NING!

3. Ombre Wood Bead Chandelier

Wood Beaded Chandeliers are not anything new. We’ve seen them for the past year or so at places like Pottery Barn, World Market and Pier1. That being said, I love the way the ombre beads create a new and fresh perspective on this light fixture. I love adding texture to any room and this is one way to add some visual interesting - it’s like jewelry for the ceiling!

4. Textured backs on lounge chairs

I noticed this fun detail in more than one showroom - chairs and sofas with textured backs. I love love love that they’ve weaved the material, especially in a fabric as unexpected as velvet. It adds subtle interest in a space, but in such a smart and thoughtful way. And again, anything textural and I’m in!

5. Rattan-wrapped bed frame

This bed belongs in my beach home - if I owned a beach home. I love the white-washed feel to the rattan, which creates that fresh and airy feel. It gives the illusion of softness from a hard material. There’s a sense of luxury, and I mean who doesn’t want to sleep in luxury?

6. Plaid Bench

There is something so special about this simple, clean-lined bench. I can’t put my finger on it. Is it the pastel, plaid fabric? Is it the fact that it is completed upholstered, including the legs? I honestly don’t know. But I could see this classic piece in a bedroom, an office, entryway, or living room. Timeless pieces never go out of style.

7. Mixed-Material Round ottoman

I mean how cute is a tiny round ottoman?! I just love the interest that this little fella provides. The multiple tones of gray, the mix of velvet, wood, and metal in between - it just packs a punch of interest! Again, an easy way to add a bit of interest to any space.

8. Forest Green and Black Lounge Chair

This chair caught my eye the minute I saw it. I loved the pairing of the black wood, with the forest green fabric. I was even more impressed when I gave it the ol’ sit test - it’s actually comfortable! The lines of the back mimicked in the base are a beautiful visual for any space. It feels like a classic kitchen dining chair, but modernized.

9. Beaded Vases

Again, this is all about the texture. Accessories are always a great way to add interest and texture to a space without committing to big furniture pieces. I love the combination of the black and the cream, it makes it look sophisticated. These could be used in multiple spaces, and would look great with a bright pop of greenery.


What do you think of my choices? Would you like to incorporate any of these pieces in your home? Let me know what you think!

Heat Wave

I can't believe we're getting this crazy HOT weather and it's only the first of June!  Seattle isn't known so much for it's amazing sunshine-y weather; but boy when the sun comes out it heats up quick!  Air conditioners were never a huge necessity in this part of the world, but with the summers getting warmer, it's time we start considering how the heck we are going to cool ourselves down.  If you're fortunate enough to have central A/C, congrats! You're the envy of the town.  But if you're like me, and looking for a stylish way to cool down, I've rounded up a couple of good looking fans.  Because we all know there's not much style in the realm of fans - ceiling or floor!  And it's hard to be a Designer and constantly want things to look pretty as well as function.

Hope you're all able to stay cool out there!  And don't forget the sunscreen...
