Design Finds At The Atlanta Market: Rugs That Rock!

 

Last weekend I had the privilege of going to the design market in Atlanta with a group of my local Dallas designer friends.  We went to several design conferences, one of which included the wonderfully talented designer, Tobi Fairley, pictured below (the only brunette amongst us Dallas blondes!).

Featured in one of my previous posts, Tobi has a very successful blog, a very successful design firm, has been published in several national magazines and participates in a great many design projects all over the country.  Forthcoming and generous, as always, she gave me some great blogging tips when I met her in New York last year and she gave me some great “twitter” tips in Atlanta. (Thanks, Tobi!) You can check out her blog here.

It was a very busy, eventful, informative weekend  – chock full of useful info from design pro’s like this panel above – including Tobi Fairley, Stan Topal of Stan Topal & Associates, a well known designer based in Atlanta, (who studied under the famous Billy Baldwin), Katie Armour with Matchbook.com, and Krissa Rossbund with Traditional Home Magazine. 

And, happily, while there I found some wonderful new resources to share with my clients.  One of which provides these spectacular rugs pictured below.

I can’t wait to share these great finds with my clients!

In addition to getting educated and gathering new resources for our clients – we shopped till we dropped –hitting the cash and carry floor for goodies for us!  It was a weekend full of fun, learning, shopping and, yes – eating.   Now it’s time to get back to the business of design.

Happy Decorating!
