Allison continues to bring a transitional touch to the EJ Victor showroom with pieces that boast a hint of exotic and modern elegance. In her 12th appearance at the High Point Market Allison will guide her guests on an exotic adventure as she presents a few of her all time favorite pieces and a sneak peek at her newest addition, The Cohen Cocktail Table and the Billy 2.
The Cohen has powerful 3 inch thick walnut supports that cradle the ¾ inch polished glass top. Textured bricks in antique silver or gold leaf serves as spacers between the wood and glass and adds dimension and sparkle. The second shelf is a rich chocolate shagreen that wraps around the edges. Billy 2 is has the same waterfall style as the Billy but now available in a glass top.
Her rug designs with New River Artisans, scattered throughout the showroom, are hand tufted loop and cut-pile construction made of New Zealand wool. The new pattern this market is “Rice Paddies”.
The North Carolina-based Company, New River Artisans, offers a host of color options in their rugs with greatly reduced lead times. New River is putting all of the custom rug companies overseas on notice. Where typical lead times average 5 to 6 months from overseas, and designers have to worry about things getting caught in customs, New River Artisans deliver strike-offs in one to two weeks, and completed area rugs in six to eight.
