Currey & Co

Dear Diva Readers,

As I’m gearing up for High Point Market next week, I wanted to invite you all to a party I’m hosting in conjunction with Currey & Co called Midnight in Paris with The Antiques Diva & Co! It will take place in the Currey & Co showroom on Saturday October 17th from 3 to 5 PM and is sure to be one of the most fun events at High Point, as everyone knows Currey & Co’s showroom is THE place to be for a good time! The idea of the party came when we had the pleasure of taking the Currey & Co team on an Antiques Diva shopping tour of the Paris Flea Market this year during Maison Objet. Their team came over to Paris for inspiration and boy did they find it! We were able to take them to sections of the market they didn’t even know about. In fact, their PR Maven Bethanne Matari says, “The Currey & Co design team spent a full day with Toma & Dive Guide Danielle at Le Puce de Paris. Having been to the market more than 20 times on our own, they took us to the back side of the flea market where we’d never been before – and it was all NEW to us. We found lots of inspirations and a few concrete ideas on new furniture designs. The best part of the day (other than a superb lunch) was a tour of vintage clothing & fabric shops. We could have spent all day there! Toma and Danielle seemed to know just about every vendor at the flea market and were full of historical information on how Le Puce came to be. All in all, it was a thoroughly entertaining day—oh,  and did I mention champagne!  Bubbly always makes an excursion more fun.”

While Currey & Co is known for their lighting lines which include chandeliers, wall sconces, table and floor lamps, they also manufacture a wide range of home furnishings, garden furniture, and accessories. In fact, they’ve been a purveyor of distinctive garden furnishings since 1988. The essence of Currey & Company is not only the product for which it is known but also the very important people who help to create the product and carefully deliver it into the hands of those other important people, the customers, in a timely fashion. While people are key, the product is also the lifeblood of the company and at Currey & Company they take pride in their original design work , meticulous craftsmanship and careful attention to all details of a product. The effort of their multi-step hand-finishing process manifests itself in the richness and depth of the final finish of many of their products. The appearance of these pieces speaks of the human hands that have touched them as well as of the design skills and craftsmanship that have created them. They have the willingness to do what many other manufacturers regard as too difficult or too time-consuming, and it certainly shows.

Some new products we love that will launch at this market are:

The Antiques Diva Does High Point Market

Dear Diva Readers,

I cannot believe that it is almost October already! It seems that this year is flying by, but October means that it’s time for autumn High Point Market which is one of my favorite times of the year.  I’ll be there giving my behind the scenes tour of The Antique & Design Center and also throwing a Midnight in Paris party at the Currey & Co showroom! I’m also speaking on a panel and taking over the High Point Market’s Instagram account for a day – not to mention standing in when Julianne Taylor of Taylor Burke Home does the pre-release of her book DesignHer, listing 35 Inspiring Women Who Are Shaping The Interior Design World.  I’m so excited she included me – ME!!! – in that list! In fact, I’m excited in general as the reason this is my favorite time of year is that High Point is all about People. It’s when I get to connect with industry friends and brands, colleagues and clients – and not to mention – BLOG READERS! I’d LOVE to invite you to attend one of my Antiques Diva events at High Point Market!

Stage Design at Design Bloggers Conference

Dear Diva Readers,

While speaking at the Design Bloggers Conference last week in Atlanta I had the pleasure of sitting on this gorgeous stage set designed by Currey & Co.  I participated in a panel with 1stdibs founder Michael Bruno and Kyle Hoepner, Editor of New England Home, speaking on the topic of Content Building for Luxury Brands.

Design Bloggers Conference 2014

Design Bloggers Conference 2014

Currey & Co is well known in the design industry for their lighting, but they also offer a wide variety of products like garden accessories, furniture, rugs, and upholstery.  Curry & Co takes pride in their original design work, meticulous craftsmanship, and careful attention to detail.  You can see the touch of the human hand in their products as a result of their multi step hand-finishing process. For Design Bloggers Conference 2014, Curry & Co provided beautiful furniture, textiles, and flowers in bright vibrant hues for the main stage of the three day conference.  They really set the stage for chic design!

Even more an honor than sharing the stage with Currey and Co’s gorgeous designs was the opportunity to meet Bethanne Matari and Cecil Adams – two of the most connected innovators  in the design scene. I am very much looking forward to visiting their showroom in person this April when I speak at the Antiques Center at Highpoint on Tuesday 8 April at 5pm.  Hint hint – rumor has it they have the best wine of all the showrooms at Highpoint.  Can’t wait to spend time with this crew!

Until next time,
The Antiques Diva®
