This week is Dallas Market week, so for those of you who can’t make it, I will take you on a virtual shopping spree at one of my favorite Dallas contemporary resources- The Holly Hunt Showroom. The photo above is from their opening last September, and what you see is the first impression you get when you enter this gorgeous space. The boldly patterned Christian Astuguevieille rug plays nicely with the fantastic Gems light fixtures by Kevin Riley, above, showing that Holly Hunt utilizes all design components as art forms.
Let’s take a virtual walk through the rest of the showroom, highlighting a few of my favorite pieces:
Gazelle Cocktail Table
One Night Stand
The clever name alone is a home run.
Maje Cocktail Table
Alison Berger Glassworks
These look beautiful, installed as a group, but they require a closer look:
Each is a unique piece of artwork, hand-blown glass, hand scripted by Berger as she made them. No two are alike.
Even her shapes are inspired by Victorian fly traps, fireflies, apothecary jars and devices of measure- deconstructed and reimagined.
Alison Berger initially trained to be an architect. This Counterweight Chandelier is stunning, and can be customized into groupings of as many as ten. Probably more, from what I have seen.
Even the weight on the right is made of hand blown glass and carefully weighted by brass discs. Each piece is individually made, and can raise or lower to make a space multi-functional. Think of the design possibilities this creates…
OK, now, onto the wallpaper. Holly Hunt carries more than this one line that I will be sharing with you. I am crazy about these designs by
a line I first discovered in New York, super creative, timeless, inspired. Trove has a way of making classic subjects into contemporary statements.
The owners of the company are inspired by the artistic possibilities of photography, and they artfully push the boundaries of what can be done with dark room photography, resulting in magical designs that are extremely customizable to meet your color palette. They also leave some of their creative repeats open for clever design interpretation and use. I will definitely be using one of their papers in the near future.
The Trove offices are located near the flower market in NYC, which influences their designs. I wish this photo of the above paper did the design justice. It does translate the added texture that gives this paper a jewel-like sparkly sheen. If you were standing in front of this one your hand would be moving across its surface.
Back to the furniture. With natural materials still the rage, and these agate slices are configured for many creative table designs, as seen throughout the showroom.
An eye-catching series by Marc Valesella, 24″ X 30″ ea, framed set of 6. A definite conversation starter.
And last but not least, the iconic Holly Hunt Rib Chair. This chair is deeper than it looks and can comfortably accommodate a bigger framed person, which makes it practical and aesthetic.
If you are coming for Dallas Market this week, be sure to stop by the Holly Hunt showroom for beautiful contemporary finds.
