Stunning and Sustainable Furniture at Phillips Collection

  At our core, we love being green and aligning with others who hold the same values.  We look for companies who provide something truly special to each home while at the same time taking care of our world.  One of our main go-to showrooms is Phillips Collection where we always find thoughtful pieces that stand out and spark a conversation.  You can usually spot a Phillips' piece of furniture when you see it.  It's always unique, artistic and sustainable - which is right up our alley!  And did I mention affordable? Consoles carved from abandoned tree roots from Northern Thailand   Using discarded scraps of wood, Phillips has created beautifully hand crafted Teakwood Horses.   Founder Mark Phillips says "It has always been our goal to be a steward of beautiful and socially responsible design.  This is an intrinsic part of our company."  And this is why we love them! We're not the only ones to notice their amazing efforts.  Because of their socially responsible products and business practices, Las Vegas Market, in conjunction with the Sustainable Furnishings Council, has awarded them their 3rd Global Goodness Award.  Highlighted was their Folded Glass Collection, which recycles shards of broken, cola bottles into stunning works of art. Folded Glass Table Folded Glass Planter Folded Glass Buddha Head  These chairs made of recycled seatbelts are cool and comfortable!   Re-purposed bicycle parts create chairs, tables and wall panels. Still a fan favorite is the raw edge tables and desks. Make it modern by adding a silver leaf finish. Something small can make a big impression, like these wood wall tiles.  So striking! This is just a taste of what Phillips Collection is all about.  They are a perfect example of one voice making a huge impact in the world.

Design Camp High Point

We're on the road again and our next destination is fall market at High Point.  For those of you who have never been, this is the perfect time to come and see what's new and refresh your interior design and business skills at Design Camp. High Point We'll be camping out in the fabulous Jaipur Rugs showroom Suite 3000 in Showplace, Saturday, October 18 from 3-6PM.  Design Camp Co-Founder Kelli Ellis and I will share our insights on how to charge a flat fee, being transparent with clients and staying profitable.  Joining us is our friend Michael Stein from Houzz, sharing secrets on how to get more clients and raise your ranking on the number one interior design site.  There will  be a surprise Design Icon and our usual gift bags and giveaways for the first 100 designers who register.     Following the camp, Jaipur will be hosting a cocktail party.  I've been quoted saying that one of my favorite things about market is the lunch at Jaipur.  The cocktails are just as good!!!  Asha (the owner), Candace and the rest of the team roll out the red carpet and welcome you with old fashioned, Indian style hospitality (you will not go hungry at this cocktail party). Asha Chaudhary and the Jaipur Team You may have also heard through the grapevine that Design Camp has partnered with Jaipur to bring you a line of outdoor rugs.  We've long been fans of the style and quality that Jaipur has to offer, but are even more grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the charitable work the Jaipur Rugs Foundation is doing!!!  Some of my favorite rugs are the Barcelona indoor outdoor and the tribal kilims.
