Hable at Hickory Chair

The best part of High Point is getting to meet many of the designers in person.  Sisters Susan Hable Smith and Katherine Hable Sweeney of Hable Construction have collaborated on a fabric line for Hickory Chair and created a little artist's studio in the showroom. Not only do I love their fabric designers but their amazing mood boards that were also located as soon as you walked in the front door. 

Loved Susan's cute cat shoes from Divia

Susan was really painting when we stopped by the showroom. 

I loved this painterly watercolor pattern she created this season.

Susan's artwork also hangs on the wall. 

Loved the new polka dot Hable fabric on these campaign chairs.

The zebra print isn't by Hable but looks great as pillows and on the chair below.  I definitely wanted to take that one home with me!

Chic in Brooklyn: DARR

After our recent visit to the Brooklyn Museum, Tommy Smythe and I decided to do a little shopping.  One of the first places we stopped was DARR on Atlantic Avenue.  I love visiting places where you never know what you might find and DARR is filled with vintage treasures and new pieces that look old.  It also smells amazing thanks to the owner's own concoction of essential oils. Make sure you stop by on your next visit to Brooklyn.
