FRIDAYfinds! Amy Howard at Market
This was the case when I met
at High Point Market last week.
She gave the most heart-felt talk
to a small group of us who visited her in the J. Douglas Showroom.
She is the founder of Amy Howard Collection and Amy Howard Home,
two incredible lines of furniture that she personally designs and builds
in her own factory in Memphis, Tennessee.
As it states above, she believes every piece "starts with passion". That is also her mantra for life.
The beauty of her furniture comes from the unique way she translates
inspiration she finds in her frequent travels to Europe.
As a designer herself, she says,
"An interior that has a sense of history and collection is the most successful"
In her showroom at market, the new introductions for Amy Howard Home were
both modern and timeless.
Although a deviation from her line of antique reproduction furniture she is known for,
these new pieces had the same signature of quality and attention to detail as her classics.
I’m sitting in Amy’s favorite new chair, Klismo.
This style dates back to ancient times,
but her interpretation is so very cool in the Toscana Black finish with caramel colored leather.
