The One That Got Away


We have all been haunted by an object of desire. You know what I am talking about; that nagging feeling in your stomach  after you’ve left  that piece behind. Yep, I know it all too well. The first day of my trip to High Point Market, heck the first hour I was there I came across a sideboard from French Renaissance at the Antique and Design Center that was PERFECT. So perfect in fact I was considering buying two. I took  pics  and all the measures, spoke to the shipping guy and was giddily redecorating my dining room to make a place for it.  But instead pulling the trigger then and there, I said I’d be back the next day to purchase it. ( After all,  I had only been in HP an hour). Long story short- when I went back it was gone 🙁  The proverbial piece that got away. I  had once again learned my lesson to go with my gut, not my head…

The second piece I wanted to use as bathroom cabinetry


What did not get away were these 2 French borders from the 19th century – they’ll be a header on a pair of panels or wrap a bolster on a sofa- and this pelmet with metal bullion. This girl can’t resist antique passementerie.





Stay tuned for my other favorite finds and trends I spotted at High Point Market later this week.
