Fall Review High Point 2014 - Julie Browning Bova Home Collection for Stanford Furniture & Abner Henry

Julie returned for their eighth High Point Market in October to share her latest Americana-inspired collection for Stanford Furniture and introduce a new collection of American-made case goods by Abner Henry Fine Furniture. Inspiration for Bova’s new collection grew from a love of casual, classic American style and historic color palettes. You’ll notice a variety of warm saddle browns, watermelon reds and a soft, vintage green throughout the collection. Julie's signature ‘tack’ references were ever-present as she layered traditional textures and patterns with historic colors. The nearly 50 piece collection of new and original designs made for a fresh, yet classically American experience for visitors. 

The Fall 2014 collection was shown in Stanford Furniture’s new High Point showroom at 333 North Hamilton Street in High Point, NC on October 18-23. It was a beautiful, fresh space filled with unique barn wood accents and towering ceilings. Among Bova’s new designs is the one-of-a-kind Hunter Boot Rack with acorn pull detailing (below left) and the clean- lined Steel Structure Coffee Table (below right), as well as many others. Both of these unique pieces were among the most popular in her new collection.

Visitors to Julie's Stanford Furniture showroom also recognized a handful of best-sellers from past collections. Returning favorites included the club-style Harley Chair (recovered in tailored blue leather), the popular Pacer Tables, and the best-selling introduction in Stanford’s history – the Meg Chair and Ottoman (all shown below).


Bova’s edgier designs for her new collection include the new Timeless Console (shown above right). This unique piece combines a white lacquer finish with a richly stained walnut interior and a sleek, metal accent. Below is the new Hack Chair and a reimagined Thistledown Sofa as well as the Harley Chair and the Steel Structure Table. We loved the beautiful barn wood walls and flooring in this space.

In keeping with Bova’s nod to Americana, all case goods shown at High Point are American-made by Ohio-based company Abner Henry. They specialize in custom, heirloom-quality hardwood furniture and create handmade pieces with a lifetime warranty. The collection’s timeless case goods hint at the past but offer a fresh, modern take on all-American style.

We're gearing up for a weekend of entertaining, relaxation, flip flops and fireworks! What could be better? To celebrate the 4th we've compiled a collection of our summer 'must-haves' that includes fresh berries, blue and white dishes, summer design reads, equestrian-inspired gifts and more. 

For entertaining we love classic red enamelware and a blue glasses set. Gingham napkins make a great added detail, too! Bringing in beautiful textiles as a table cloth of runner is an unexpected way to make a summer soiree stand out. 

Another favorite: Bouquets of hydrangea and antique blue and white dishes! Blue and white dishes are always a great choice, especially after a fresh berry or watermelon haul from the farmer's market. 

A quiet moment with a good book is always on our list - regardless of the season! This summer we can't wait to dive into these beautiful coffee table books by Bunny Williams and Charlotte Moss

And finally, it's always a must to sport bright JBB Design belt buckles, equestrian tech cases and coasters! Click here to learn more about our equestrian-inspired gifts.

What's on your summer 'must-have' list? We'd love to read what you're up to this weekend and what you love about this time of year in the comments below. 

From all of us at JBB Design, we hope you have a happy, safe and relaxing 4th of July. Enjoy!

Fresh Summer Bouquets

Summer brings beautiful blooms of all colors, shapes and sizes. We love having fresh bouquets in our office and adding them as accents to newly designed spaces. To celebrate this time of year and the upcoming weekend we thought we'd share some of our recent favorites - including bouquets of lilac, lily of the valley, peonies and more!
We love peonies and use them as often as we can. Especially when they're in season and blooming around every corner here in Indy! Julie created this gorgeous bouquet for Mother's Day weekend.
Lily of the Valley freshly picked from the garden
Lilacs cut by the barn make a beautiful summer centerpiece

And finally the quintessential summer flower, Hydeangea!
We're constantly inspired by the colors in nature. These beautiful new Brunschwig and Fils textiles pick up all of our favorite summer hues. Tell us - which bouquet would you take home?
We hope you love this collection of beauties as much as we do.
Have a wonderful weekend!
