SALON is a must-see destination for any buyer looking for cutting-edge product resources that will create excitement on retail floors and in design studios. Located in the Suites at Market Square on part of the Ground floor, SALON features design-focused, fashion-forward companies and their latest designs in the furniture, lighting, rugs, wall art, home textile and decorative accessories categories.
For Spring 2018 High Point Market, a few of the new exhibitors in SALON include Elite Home Fashions (G-3040), Ercole Home NYC (G-7020), Pampas Leather/Cowhide Rugs (G-6000B), The Picturalist (G-6009) and R&Y AUGOUSTI Paris, KIFU Paris and PATRICK COARD Paris (G-7025).
The Picturalist (G-6009) is new, offering interior designers, hoteliers and retail showrooms a one-stop shop that offers custom, framed artwork via a curated image bank. Ranging from antique Etruscan prints to Modernist abstracts and photography by hand-picked artists, The Picturalist images can be selected in any size, frame and medium the customer chooses. Archival inks, premium papers, acrylics, metals and other materials are available, along with the capacity for 2,000 prints per day.
Returning to High Point this market is Ercole Home NYC (G-7020), with a selection of high-end artisanal furniture and an assortment of exciting new products from Italy. Ercole Home is made in New York and features an artisanal collection of mosaic furniture and décor and includes organic elements including metal, leather and birch.
Pampas Leather/Cowhide Rugs (G-6000B) is a family-run company established in 1926 in Barcelona, Spain that moved to Argentina in 1944. Since then, Pampas Leather has become one of the company’s biggest players in the cowhide and sheepskin business, establishing headquarters in Fort Lauderdale in 2016 to bring their products to the U.S. Every piece is handmade from raw materials that are sourced for quality, softness, color and texture. Products include rugs, chairs and pillows in cowhide, sheepskin and goatskin and leather furniture and headboards.
Three collections in one space— R&Y AUGOUSTI Paris, KIFU Paris and PATRICK COARD Paris (G-7025) — are named after founding family members and represent a trio of artisanal collections, reflecting handmade techniques of eras past. KIFU Paris is a collection of home accessories and furniture that features handmade techniques of elaborate inlay patterns of shagreen, shells, semi-precious stones, materials interpreted in fresh ways including "jewelry inspired knobs" on decorative boxes, gold bar boxes and an extravagant inlay pattern mix of shagreen and shell inspired from the feathers of exotic birds seen on an enormous round mirror. PATRICK COARD Paris is a collection of candles in a shagreen texture, hand carved patterns and sculptural shapes, inspired by sculptors from the 30s and 40s. R&Y AUGOUSTI is the anchor of the family collections and showcases iconic pieces from the line normally seen only in Paris, Italy and New York, along with fresh new large scale furniture designs as well as accessories including a new universe-inspired handmade Star mirror in metal and exotic skins.
