Editor’s Spotlight: Southern Home

Editor Lynn Terry shares the looks she’d like to see more of at Fall Market

High Point Market is always an extraordinary experience as I visit showrooms to take in the latest home furnishings. Perusing the offerings by antique vendors as well as smaller entrepreneurs in the Suites at Market Square is always on my agenda. For October, I’m looking forward to seeing more color, texture, and a greater use of natural materials.

Margaux Accent Chair by Universal Furniture

Covered in a colorful fabric, the Margaux Accent Chair from Universal Furniture adds a lively look to the room. Everyone loves motion, and this swivel chair is so very comfortable — and the perfect size for a family room or sitting area.

Ming Large 4-Drawer by Bungalow 5

From Bungalow 5, this versatile chest in navy blue is both functional and stylish. I love the textured grasscloth finish, chow-style feet and elegant brass pulls.

Dogwood, Magnolia, Camellia Wall Flowers by Chelsea House

Works of art for your wall, these ceramic flowers from Chelsea House make a delicate and delightful design statement. Use them as a decorative element to a piece of art or a mirror, or let them stand alone for a subtle, simple touch.

Newport Cities Collection Lantern with Custom Steel Bracket by Lantern & Scroll

I love the fresh mix of a traditional copper lantern with a brass ring and black steel bracket from Lantern & Scroll. Plus, you can choose from a range of sizes to fit the scale of the home’s front entry.

Georgian Serpentine Chest in Mahogany by Whitehall Antiques

Antiques represent the ultimate in sustainable furnishings. Although these items aren’t new, their patina lends a collected look to your interiors. A traditional chest with a deep brown finish, like the kind you will find at Whitehall Antiques provides a great accent to any foyer, bedroom or den.
