Highland House Furniture preview from High Point Market

If you were wondering, yes, we did get to meet Candice Olson, but not long enough for a photo with her.  
 She used a lot of lavender and aqua/blue in her fabrics this time, along with some painted finishes that had a sort of opalescence to it.  

 This coffee table isn't new to her collection, but a piece we have been admiring for awhile.  

 Not all of our favorites were from Candice's collection.  Highland House has used some of her ideas in their regular line of furniture.  Notice how a very traditional mix of furniture looks completely different with painted legs, rather than the usual stain.

 Candice has introduced a line of casegoods that can be mixed and matched in a variety of combinations.  She believes furniture should be able to adapt to life----as kids grow and needs change, so should your home.

We don't usually think of this shape for a coffee table/ottoman, but it works out great!  It would also be a great choice for a bench at the foot of a bed.

 This photo is a good example of Highland House's cottage style of furniture.  This sofa is so comfortable----we have one coming to the shop after the first of the year.  You're going to want to try this one out if you're looking for a sofa that will blend in with your vintage style.  It will be family friendly upholstered in an indoor/outdoor fabric!  The fabric used in the showroom was a great choice if you are looking for an all over pattern.

 Here's some more of Candice's collection including her casegood pieces in the other color choice.  It does make a great entertainment center!

A very traditional, tall back sofa, curved seat, tufted back---paired with traditional chairs that have painted legs.  It's a good idea to keep a mix of finishes---it really keeps a room fresh and not so predictable.  The stained, twist legs on the ottoman keeps the whole room more traditional.  Did you notice how this shape fits so nicely with the curved sofa?

Are you ready to make a furniture purchase?  Come on by and we'll tell you everything we learned at High Point Market!  Our upholstered furniture  is made in the USA, and we have several pieces for you to try out.
