High Point Market Stand-Outs


The recent fall Market was rife with fresh materials, patterns, and unexpected designs. Metallic sheen, nature themes, and Mid-Century Modern inspiration were some of the style ideas that came up again and again.

 Libby Langdon line for Bradburn


Bradburn Gallery

The fall market marked the launch of the Libby Langdon line for Bradburn Gallery, which included this 27.5”-high Winston table lamp in Navy.
The designer’s coordinated collection of lighting, wall décor, accent furniture, and tabletop accessories were offered throughout market through different vendors. “Stylistically speaking, my collection reflects the needs and wants of my clients,” notes Libby Langdon. “The primary elements are elegant, clean lines and fashion-forward looks. Time after time, I find that my clients don’t want anything too modern, yet they do like fresh color combinations and updated silhouettes that are not too fussy or formal. Bradburn is such a wonderful, trustworthy brand well-known for their incredible quality and impeccable manufacturing standards. I’m thrilled to add an exciting new design direction with my ‘Libby twist!’”

This company has a vast portfolio of original art created specifically for acoustic panels. Who needs acoustic panels? Nearly everyone! Home theaters and residential media rooms plus restaurants and offices are among their clients. The panels absorb sound waves and prevent the waves from bouncing off of the many hard surfaces in any given room (including open work spaces and loft living areas). The panels come in 1- and 2-inch thicknesses and can be manufactured within 4′ x 10′ panels. Naturally absorptive, the panels can also be altered to have reflective or diffusive properties and can be finished with a decorative frame or any edge detail. Artwork consists of traditional patterns, photographs, and original art that can be customized to match your clients’ color palette. www. 3Dsquared.com

The M3LD name represents the heart and brain of these 3 founding partners who meld unique and complementary skills with a passion for design. Their line runs the gamut from lighting pendants, lamps, tables, wall tiles, sculptures, and even pet dishes! www.M3ld.com
