We took a trip to ATL this past weekend to go to The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. It’s always fun searching for new brands and products to bring back to the shop. Here’s a look at some of our favorite products from the show, and a little sneak peek of things you may be seeing soon in the shop!
We loved this wooden console & nightstand, as well as all of the white & gold combos in these pieces:
Lighting lovers unite- how cool is that pendant on the right?! We can totally picture it in a sleek bachelor’s pad or a modern dining room.
Zoe Bios Creative always showcases some of the coolest art
And as always, there were accessories galore.
Atlanta Market never disappoints! Be sure to check out our Instagram feed to be the first to know when new products come in 🙂
We’re excited to introduce a new menswear inspired bedding company we’ve recently started carrying in the shop, The Tuckered Trading Company!
The Tuckered Trading Co. was founded by two boarding school roommates to create a solution to poor quality, uninspiring sheets and duvets for the dorm room.
Each sheet set is made from Oxford cloth that is sourced from some of the best artisanal mills in Europe, so you know they’re the real deal. Oxford cloth is a soft, durable fabric that is slightly heavier in grade, making it a great match for the wear and tear of everyday life. Their sheets are extremely soft to begin with, but because they’re Oxford cloth, the more they’re washed, the better they get! Here are a few of their sheet patterns:
And below are a few patterns that are available for duvet covers:
They currently specialize in Twin XL sheet sets, meaning they’re perfect for the dorm room, but would also be great for children’s rooms and mountain or beach homes.
If you’re in the market for a new set of super soft, stylish sheets, we hope you’ll come check this brand out!
2015 was a great year in design, but we’re really looking forward to what will be going on in the design world in 2016.
Everyone has their own ideas of what trends this year holds, so we thought we’d add our two cents 🙂 Take a look at our predictions of 2016 interior design trends:
Making the spaces in our home an escape from the connected world we live in
Designer Stacy Garcia was quoted in the Wall Street Journal, saying: “The growing emphasis on this need to always be connected has created a movement to find quiet simplicity amongst the noise”. Preach it, Stacy- we couldn’t agree more. Ways you could expect to see this through design are:
A shift away from the loud, fun colors of the bohemian style (that were ever so popular in 2015) & a move towards more neutral or calming hues
Of course there will always be a place for fun colors & patterns, but consider toning certain spaces down a notch, like the bedroom, for instance. This helps to create a space where you can go to disconnect.
Simplicity in Interiors
Architectural Digest got designer Miles Redd’s thoughts on this: “I think 2016 will bring a shift toward a kind of minimalism. Let’s call it minimalism with a twist. I think everyone responds to the luxury of space, but there are so many wonderful objects, art, and furniture that it takes superhuman powers of refusal (at least for me) not to have something. The great thing to do is refining and distilling it to the best things that speak to you and removing the rest.”
Eliminating certain pieces from your home can be hard, but can also help you to declutter and better appreciate the pieces that are most important and meaningful.
This leads us to our next trend:
This really emphasizes a mix of old & new pieces in the home & being able to reflect an individual’s interests instead of honoring a particular style. Jonathan Adler captures this idea beautifully in Vogue: “We live in an anything-goes world where it’s okay to mix high with low, mid-century with minimalist modern, colors, patterns, and everything in between. The best trend I’m seeing is people forgetting about the ‘rules’ and loving what they love unapologetically”.
Pieces made by local artisans being used in the home
This includes ceramics like bowls & vases, as well as art, weavings and other textiles.

We especially love this trend- if we can support local makers & artisans AND obtain beautiful pieces for our homes, it’s a win-win.
