Countdown to High Point: The Currey 6

I was invited, among others, to preview Currey & Co.'s newest decorative offerings for High Point Spring Market 2015. Flattered by the ask, I am sharing 6 random pieces that spoke to me. Like playing a word association game, certain items triggered a quick thought, and it was this auto-response that drove
"The Currey 6."

For example, as soon as I saw the Medusa Multi-Pendant (above), I thought, 
in other words, I predict it will be one of the most widely editorialized spectacles of market. As for me, I'd XOXO to see it floating above me in a South Beach bar while I drink the crispest, coldest glass of prosecco.


Wild for folksy Mexican heart milagros, I now heart Shannon Koszyk's chic translation.

As decorators/designers we all have experienced the NEED to find the finishing touches for a certain project, that je ne sais quoi piece for a puzzling corner, clamoring for something to fill the space, but nothing too much. Voila! The faux bois coat tree, except sans coats, in perfect fade-away gray.
Bonus: You can dress it up for the holidays.

The Countryhouse Coat Tree, 77.5"H,  is too cool to cover up.
As soon as I saw the black-n-nude Cooksbridge Pendant it reminded me of the killer dress Madonna wore on the IHeartRadio Awards, except in reverse.

Every cell in my body responds to green in a really good way.
Funny, they call this colorway for the Rehan Rug "charcoal" but I'm just seeing green.
...the whole idea of cross-section fascinates me, and since I've been keeping tabs, when I spied the sliced bamboo decorating the Currey & Co. shade, I was convinced of the trend.

And one more thing...

The uber-creative and witty Aviva Stanoff will be in the Currey & Co. house on Monday the 20th from 3-5, High Point. She's working on a collection that will launch late this year. I can't even imagine!
