High Point Wrap Up: Hickory Chair and Julian Chichester

We are back from High Point,
and as always it was a whirlwind - 
frantic, furious, fun
and full of fabulous product.

I was thrilled to be introducing
 several new pieces 
to my Nancy Price signature line
 for Design Legacy.

I have taken the artisan approach in my line and am very proud of the
 quality, detail, and craftsmanship 
in each of the pieces and grateful
 to all the individuals 
who put in personal time and effort to bring the products to market.

My Koi Cabinet

Koi Cabinet Detail with eight layers of lacquer!
I am really proud of it!

My tufted saturated BLUE ottoman

My Palm Springs Secretary with lots of door detail

My EMMA BLUE pillows with fabulous embroidered detail

My Aura Banner

My Greek Key Chair

I was thrilled that my 
Greek key chair was selected 
as a hot product at market.

And my line was chosen as a show favorite by
 Studio M as featured on their blog
M Pression!

My line is pictured in spot number eight!

Nicole and I did manage to slip away from my showroom for just a bit to visit a 
couple of my favorite showrooms 
Hickory Chair and Julian Chichester

 One hundred year old Hickory Chair
 is one of my perennial favorites
 and is known for those exact things which I am aspiring to achieve in my line, 
quality, detail, and craftsmanship.

I love their design flexibility and 
all the customization options they offer, 
particularly on the case goods.

My friend Tim Swafford 
from Hickory Chair
had sent me quite a few preview pictures,
but I was happy to browse 
the showroom in person.

Of course I loved this vignette 
with touches of blue.

And I totally adored this vignette with 
saturated blue walls.

One of my New Year's resolutions
was to use more saturated blue like this and in my new ottoman above!

I totally loved the fabrics from Hable's fabric line on some of the pieces.

I have even been thinking pink, well just a touch, and the pinks were pretty and  inspiring.

We do have a touch of pink in the studio!

I especially love these 
Hickory Chair Column Cabinets
that are currently in stock at the studio,
and I am very excited that Hickory Chair is 
customizing the Wabi coffee table for 
a special client.

We currently have these unbelievable column cabinets in the studio, and
the Wabi coffee table is on order for a special client.

And these great stools are
 also in at the studio.

Nicole's pick was the Mercer dining table.

( I find the production process in Hickory Chair's Hickory, NC, production facility fascinating.  To see the process of building

And then we were off to one more favorite, 
Julian Chichester.
Julian and David are always a pleasure!

I especially adored one of Julian's tables and one of his chairs.  We ordered the chair in 
a gorgeous grey velvet for a client.

Yes, it was a whirlwind -

and full of fabulous product.
It was High Point!
