Feeling Blue at High Point Market

While other shades have come and gone, the staying power of blue at High Point this spring market proved the universal popularity of the hue. Whether fashion forward Yves Klein cobalt, classic navy or the pop of peacock, blue was prevalent in almost every showroom I visited. Within Alexa Hampton‘s stunning suite of rooms at Hickory Chair was this beautiful blue bedroom, featuring her Tompkins bed and Simon bench customized with a Martyn Lawrence Bullard marbleized fabric from Schumacher.

Classical allusions abounded, including her own “cobaltized” version of the Winged Victory surrounded by a series of Caesar intaglios and her Kina console.

In the red room, Alexa paired a beefed up version of her Roberts sofa in blue velvet with rich red walls of Maya Romanoff’s textural Weathered Walls Paper. Her new Gemma mirror, here as a pair in blue and silver adds an updated play on neoclassic lines.

Throughout her rooms, Alexa added fabulous trim details from Fret Fabrics that took her pieces from beautiful to amazing.

Blue is a staple at Bungalow 5 and here showed off their new mirrored console optimally.

Sometimes a new iteration of a product, presented in new colors and fabrics can make all the difference. That was the case at Century where their New Tradition console looked smashing in Buckland Blue lacquer

And their distinctive Serenity chair looked fresh in a slate finish with Asian influenced blue print.

Their tufted Avalon ottoman looked tailored in the new navy woven Maximillian

and the Princeton wing chair made a bold style statement in the new Myanmar ikat.

Oomph debuted several blue pieces in their new showroom in Market Square. The Eaton Chest, available in two sizes, gets its decorative appeal from a choice of tassels and beautiful hardware available in different finishes – such a clever way to add a colorful touch. The Easton Mirror, shown in their first ever silver finish can be trimmed in your favorite Oomph color. Their lamp collection was introduced earlier this year. Here the Charleston lamp in Oceanfront glaze completes the vignette.

The gorgeous hand printed Tillet Textiles had a myriad of blue fabrics within their one of a kind selections.

Stools are a great addition to any room, available for double duty as seating or side table. More decorative ones in blue were found at Taylor Burke. Their James Ottoman covered Cotton + Quill‘s ShiShi is another updated take on chinoiserie.

  5. One of my all time favorite colors and I love pretty much everything that caught your eye, Stacey. Those Thibault fabrics are fantastic. The Ikat makes me want to give our wing chairs a makeover! XOXO

  6. Loved everything in this post!! I am certainly living vicariously through everyone’s photos and posts from HPMKT since I was unable to attend…..glad Taylor Burke Home was still able to show my Shishi fabric on her ottomans!! Thank you for including them!

  7. Comer Wear says:

    Beautiful all around! So great to see all of your pictures. Thank you for including us in this great round up of High Point blues!

  8. Every magazine that I picked up since February this year showed Blue as a Predominate, Subordinate or Accent color used in decorating. Blue, a classic that always was and always will be loved and used. You never tire of the blue sky, why should a person ever tire of the restfulness of blue.
