Editor’s Spotlight: RUE

Editorial director Kelli Lamb explores a world of artistry, style, and sumptuous comfort

I go to High Point Market looking for items that surprise and delight me — from one-of-a-kind handmade pieces to the perfect finishing touches for a room. For Spring Market, I look forward to seeing vendors continue to move towards comfort and durability — think stain-resistant textiles and materials that will continue to patina long after installation. In the past, this often meant compromising on style, but that's not the case today. I can’t wait to see how the genre evolves.

Manchaha Collection

This one-of-a-kind rug was handwoven by a 25-year-old female artisan in Khora, Rajasthan for Jaipur Living. It’s a work of art, telling the story of how Buddha spread love everywhere he went. The colors are exquisite.

Thom Filicia

Design icon Thom Filicia can do no wrong! The elegant lines of these Carrera levers for the Accurate Hardware Collection at Wendover Art Group are inspired by the detail on the classic Porsche® car model. It doesn’t get any cooler than that.

Vern Yip

Color, color, color! Vern Yip pulled inspiration from his world travels in a new collection for Trend by Fabricut, and I’m especially fond of the botanical tiger print in rich sapphire. Though it’d make for gorgeous window coverings, I’m thinking of an application for a chair or chaise.

Regina Andrew

The Trillium sconce from Regina Andrew is like a piece of jewelry for your home. This would look incredible on dark walls. It reminds me of an intimate boutique hotel in London or Barcelona.

Noir

The unique curves of the Daisy dining chair at Noir — the shapes appear to float—are delightful to look at. But I was even more impressed with its comfort.
