A beautifully laid out space mixes Beeline accessories, upholstered furniture, case goods, lighting and pieces from Bunny Williams' personal collection.

After visiting many great showrooms on my recent visit to High Point Furniture Market, I am excited to share my top design picks, trends and designer collections. I begin with Bunny Williams and her Beeline Collection II. Her new upholstery, case pieces, and accessories were shown in the Wesley Hall showroom. Welsey Hall creates their upholstery, and the new additions as well as the last introduction were shown together, throughout the two room space.
Bunny livened up the walls with a digitally printed hedge row wallpaper, and brought in flowering plants and arrangements to really bring the space to life. By varying the upholstery fabrics, adding throw pillows, and additional decorative accessories, the layers come together to show her unique vision. What makes seeing these styled rooms such a treat is that the designer touch is really present. Williams comes down days in advance to arrange the furniture, add the accessories, and put the finishing personal touches into the layout. This effort makes a big difference, as the experience makes one feel as though they are walking into a Bunny Williams - designed home.

Modern artwork hangs above John's Sofa topped with throw pillows.

The King Gustavian Cupboard is centered on the wall and flanked by two Reverse Regency Mirrors.

The Ziegfield Mirror hangs above the Gigi three seat sofa.

A pale blue upholstered armchair with a tailored tight back and deco-inspired arm is structured and comfortable.

The T42 Chair with amply tufting is a perfect reading chair upholstered in a nice light green linen.

The Olympia Etagere reminds me of the classic Dorothy Draper piece. A gilded ball finial at the top give this sculptural piece added glamour.

The red painted interior pops the books or anything you place on its shelves.

The Twist Etagere is a good bet for small spaces in need of attractive storage options.

The Tuxedo Drinks Table has two handy shelves and a striking ebony finish.

The Nailhead Sofa has a high, tight back and structured base. Styled with pillows in a classic Clarence House print, the personalized decorative touches add that extra layer of detail.

The Skol Bar is based on a Gustavian piece with a decorative lyre. It has a great storage shelf inside.

The Red Tape Bench with graduated ball legs has endless uses.

A tablescape with cachepot and hurricane add to the beautified space
The new Pheasant Feather Lamp in a neo gourd shape and unique glazed pattern.

Another new lamp, the Brush Stroke Lamp, has a wonderful artisan feel.

Bunny added modern artwork to the mix.

Another personal touch- a gardening article and photo mementos are tucked under the glass top of this side table like a collage.
