A few of my favorite traditional pieces from Theodore Alexander spotted on my showroom tour during the spring 2013 High Point Market.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m bored to death every time the phrase “It’s Emerald Green – you know the Pantone Color of they Year” tumbles out of some decorista’s mouth.  And that’s a tough place for me to be – second to Pink, Emerald Green is a favorite color. But Emerald Green has saturated the market and design editorials to the point that it has lost its specialness. My feelings on green changed a bit for me this week while visiting a couple of showrooms, including the well-appointed Theodore Alexander showroom.

For the first time in several months I was  actually delighted to see green. This jewel-toned sofa by Theodore Alexander, I believe was the only, or at least one of a very few, green pieces in the showroom. I appreciate the design sensibilities at Theodore Alexander – to judiciously add green only where required, to buck the trend of so many in the design and fashion world to paint an entire collection green. I’ve long been a design fan of Theodore Alexander for their exquisitely crafted furniture and décor and the rich story behind every piece,  now I adore them even more for staying true to their design aesthetic in a world that is easily swayed by fads and trends.

Theodore Alexander really is all about the details as these two pieces (photos: above and below) attest to. Finely crafted details created using the same type of tools used by furniture artisans over 100 years ago.
