To Market! To Market! Inspiration at AmericasMart Atlanta

Long before W Road Collection opened,  I tagged along with my designer sister, Barbara Dalton, to ADAC, High Point Market and AmericasMart Atlanta. This year was even more exciting as I found inspiration at every turn. The beautiful showrooms  blended  different styles, creating new inspiring designs. Here are some of my favorites.

Montes Doggett- We discovered this beautiful white handmade pottery last year in the High Design Temporaries and found them again this year in their own showroom.  

Handmade in Peru, this line is completely dishwasher and microwave safe. 

These beautiful timeless whites with their unique and functional designs go with EVERY style.

 

Versatile, elegant and functional. We are so excited to carry this line.

 

Bliss Studio- I am always drawn to quality Gustavian and French pieces and Bliss Studio is a new favorite.

From the Scandinavian patina on the chest to the French chandelier reflected in the mirror, I love everything in this vignette- mixed metals, old and new connected by color, patina and lines.

Simple elegance in Bliss Studio.

 

Unique smalls add just the right touch.

 

Fabulous patina on this Bliss Studio chest. 

The High Design Temporaries are an absolute must for unique and creative pieces and once again we saw Pendulux and their funky industrial clocks and lighting. Et al designs' booth caught our eye with exquisite taper and pillar candles we can't wait to add to our Collection.

 The quaint design  carries across many styles.

 Victorian, Industrial, or just timeless. It makes me think of " Around the World in 80 Days".

Always searching for  something a bit different, I fell in love with Light and Living's leaf sculptures and the clean chrome lamps with natural linen shades. 

Standing alone or in a pair as shown here, these wooden leaf carvings are unique and work with any decor.

 Chrome and Linen- a great combination for mixing it up and pulling it altogether.

This wall display of Square Feathers pillows was a show stopper not only for the linen and velvet pillows, but for the display itself.

For me, no trip is complete without a serious look at porcelains that work so well with our antique pieces. but also give that curated look to any decor. Avala had some wonderful aged pieces that caught our eye.

 The aged look in this wonderful coral color make this a perfect piece to pair with antiques.

 You can never, ever go wrong with blue and white porcelain.

We found beautiful Belgian and French table linens in Kiss That Frog that we couldn’t pass up and  French Market Collection and Sferra are always favorites.

I can’t wait for the arrival of our rugs , French mirrors, Belgian table linens, white pottery, candles and Greek Key crystal. Combining these "new" accessories with our "old" antiques will be fun.

Now to make our move to Southside Antiques by February 1st!
