Last month, we ventured out to AmericasMart Atlanta to scout out new products from our favorite brands and check on upcoming design trends. Going to Market is always exciting, stimulating, dynamic – and some of the best exercise your legs will get all year. 😉

For us, going to Market is all that and more – it’s a spark to fire up our imagination and get our creative juices flowing. What a great way to start off the new year!

One of our favorite finds at this year’s Market was Blue Ocean Traders. Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, they specialize in importing fine antiques and faithful reproductions for home and garden.

Their Atlanta showroom featured a variety of unique furniture and decor that would easily add a special touch to both residential and commercial interiors. Below are some examples of the cool furniture and accessories they stock.

Besides the unique selection of items they source and produce, we love Blue Ocean Traders’ mantra: “there’s nothing more green than vintage”. This sentiment is very much in line with what many of our clients aspire to in both their homes and their lifestyles more generally.

Another highlight for us was the gorgeous new Palais Collection by Loloi Rugs.

Done in collaboration with Rifle Paper Co., this collection features wonderfully colorful and whimsical motifs inspired by the work of illustrator Anna Bond. These rugs are printed on a soft polyester base and are very comfortable to walk on. Plus, they’re colorfast and stain-resistant to boot.

Because of the quality and craftsmanship of their products, Loloi Rugs is one of our favorite manufacturers. If you’re interested in seeing more from Loloi, we’ll be happy to show you their entire catalog and over 50 floor samples at our boutique.
