It’s almost here! Ready to spot some style!

High Point, North Carolina’s Home Furnishings Market is like Fashion Week for interior designers & we are super stoked because it starts this week!  It’s no secret that IBB is not your typical furniture store.  We take 6 of our talented designers to market to hand select the freshest products in the industry to enable our clients to shop the best selection for their homes.


High Point Market has recruited eight home fashion trendsetters to showcase their favorite products and top trends at the April show and in case you haven’t heard yet, I was selected as one!  Yippee!!!  I’m taking this honor rather seriously, as I am bound & determined to uncover some really cool products to offer our clients at IBB & share with you!  As the only designer representing the Lone Star State, you know I’ll be on the hunt to show you some Texas sized style! 


I will be pinning as I walk the show and capturing images of my favorite looks and hot new products to my High Point pin board on Pinterest.  I’ll be competing against 7 other home fashion trendsetters for the coveted title of “Best Style Spotter” & a free trip to the fall market.


You can VOTE!  Simply follow my High Point Market pin board on Pinterest, and generate “likes” and re-pins of my market photos of products to your own Pinterest boards.  I want to know what tickles your design fancy!  Each “like” earns 1 point & each “re-pin” earns 2 points.  Start following my board today!  The Style Spotting begins in just a few days!  Follow all of the fun April 19th-24th.

Happy designing!!

Large & in charge!

Today, I’m letting IBB designer JT take over the blog! I love his sense of style & passion for design. I never see him without a smile on his face & he & his clients are always having such a blast around IBB. It makes you want to join in on all of the fun! JT is going to share with us a few examples of the larger scaled furniture trends making a splash in the design world.

Over the past few years we’ve noticed that building trends have been incorporating higher ceilings and larger rooms, ceiling heights are anywhere from 12 to 25 feet, easily…and IBB has got you taken care of when challanged with furnishing these spacious spaces.
Plus,I am totally obsessed with all the large scale items that have been arriving at IBB lately…these are a few of my favs.

This pair of white wing Chaise/Chair hybrids are FABULOUS! First of all they are a blank canvas and could have any color introduced…Imagine popping turquoise throws and pillows on them, then nestle them on either side of a fireplace, so cozy and a perfect spot for a Sunday afternoon read.

This one is equally amazing…I see three of these in a media room, with tables just like the one pictured at each…very chic…and this one comes with a slip cover just in case you jump and spill while watching that scary movie!

I LOVE this lamp! At over 50” tall it make a statement, the polished nickel and gorgeous white shade is just what you need to complete any space. I can see a pair of these on a tall console in an entry or behind a floating sofa. Bonus, it comes in a lush gold finish as well!

OK, this is THE mirror! It’s really breathtaking…Formal Dining Room, Master Bedroom, Entry Way, Living a loft downtown or a home in the suburbs… I can think of a million places to use this mirror and it will look absolutely gorgeous. It’s got a great finish and will be a statement piece, it’s so fresh but at the same time, I think it could add that certain something even to a very traditional environment…I’m really excitied about it.

Stop by and see these colossal creations today!

Passionate about design & specializing in the field for the past 14 years, JT has a working knowledge of all design styles. His work ranges from a top floor modern penthouse in San Diego, eclectic loft in downtown Dallas even a working cattle ranch in West Texas. This affection for all design styles, paired with being well traveled, has afforded him an unparalleled sense of style. Having appreciation of the simple elegance of traditional, clean lines and bold color of contemporary, to a touch of the exotic, JT helps his clients realize their own personal style. With his creativity and keen eye for detail, he reinterprets the classics giving them a new look and helping make your house a home with furnishings that will remain timeless.

Sneak Peek Saturday: Craig Ranch

For today’s sneak peek Saturday, I wanted to give you a look inside a fun project we just completed out in Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX.

The project is a 4,292 sq ft 2 story town home located in a private gated section of Craig Ranch. All of the town homes boast exceptional views of the TPC golf course. For this model, the developer requested a traditional interior that would cater to a discriminating buyer looking for luxury in an elite golfing community.

The finish out of the home had already been completed by the builder. We were very excited to be called in to be the exclusive designers for this project & furnish & accessorize the home from top to bottom.

For more information on the interior design of this home or to incorporate this look into your own home, contact one of IBB Design Fine Furnishing’s talented designers. To schedule a tour of this home or for more information regarding the purchase of this home, contact the office Paulette Green with Ebby Halliday.

Stay tuned because we are installing a second project for Craig Ranch in just a few weeks.  I’m super excited about this one!  It will be a completely different design style & color palette.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

Happy designing!
