I spotted many great finds while Stylespotting at this year's spring High Point Market. As I scanned each company's booth examining what was new, I was on the lookout for interesting introductions that I felt were worth noting. Here, I highlight those selections that I tagged with my Stylespotter cards. I hope you will follow my Pinterest board here, and vote for my picks to help me garner enough votes to win a trip back to market next season. You can vote for my pins/board until 5pm (EST) on May 3rd.

Repin to your heart's content and I thank you for your time well-spent!

Low and loungey, the Bedford Slipper Chair from Thibault is a nice bedroom or living room addition with mid century lines.  I love the coral print on it.

The right scale is everything. Hickory Chair introduced the Maud Chair, an armchair that sits well in small spaces and larger seating arrangements that requires pieces with sleek lines.

Diminutive and darling, CR Laine's Slipper Chair upholstered in a summery printed fish cotton is just right used in pairs.

Well-scaled, the Caldwell Tub Chair from Van Collier covered in linen grain sack fabric lends a casual air to a country setting.

With a swooping curved back and diminutive scale, this two seater from Kim Salmela is adorable for apartment living.

Lounge around on Lee Industries supremely comfortable, right-sized sectional sofa. In chocolate velvet with a pale wood leg, it can fit into a tight space easier than you think.

Fret no more.. Kelly green and bamboo on Bungalow 5's Jardin Chair gets Palm Beach right.

Swirly pale blue upholstery and a clear Lucite leg on Century Furniture's Signature Collection Ottoman adds deco glam.

Fuzzy with vintage flair, Wesley Hall debuted a Mongolian Ottoman on spindly tapered legs that is fuzzy and FUN.

Designer Marjorie Skouras knows how to create a statement. Here, she encrusts the Silvio Console with shells at Currey and Company, covering every inch in sea treasures.

Graphic and geometric, Bernhardt created a bone-inlay dresser in black and white zig zags called The Herringbone Dresser. Very chic.

Available in a wide array of juicy lacquer colors, I have an Orange crush on the Gabrielle Commode from Tritter Feefer. Choose from over 200 high gloss finish colors.

:A-based designers Woodson and Rummerfield styled up the Stanley Furniture showroom where this coral painted Beaufain Bachelorette Chest with brass swag pulls caught my eye. It also looks great in crisp pure white.

Chelsea Textiles added to their mid-century modern assortment with a new two-drawer Bedside Table in a streamlined silhouette with clean linear brass loop pulls.

A cut-corner mirrored Backgammon Table with eglomise surface was just part of the great debut from Celerie Kemble for Maitland-Smith. Upholstery was with Henredon, and the whole collection and showroom styling  blew everyone away at market. Even the Fig tree planters were beautiful, with bone inlay.

Give this swirl a whirl in grey with white from A Lacquer Piece. The Graffiti reinterprets a modern classic in an artsy way.

Special finishes are the details that count.  Mr. and Mrs. Howard for Sherrill Furniture had this new Paris Cocktail Table with dragged paint finish luxe treatment. 

Faux Bois is refined in Mr. Brown's new painted metal coffee table in aged white with a burnished mirror top. 

Books will be happy in Noir Furniture's Regence Bookcase in a washed gray finish. The Dutch architectural pediment is an unusual and beautiful detail. 

Tall, tailored and triangular, the new Etagere from Arteriors is well-suited for storage in small spaces and looks great flanking upholstery. 

Sometimes bigger is better. The brand new XL Moravian Star lantern at Visual Comfort makes the case well.

Bunny Williams for Mirror Image debuted several new designs. The Garbo, an ebony and brass hexagon mirror is a gem with deco glamour. 

A spot for a drink courtesy of Baker Furniture. The Soren Spot Table in a nice muted brass is an elegant end table. 

Ostrich eggs have never looked so chic. The lucite stands turn them into modern art.

I'm curious about the ostrich eggs, too. Who manufacturers them?
