John Dransfield: a high point from market
November 1, 2012
We are still making our way through the 500 or so images from High Point. It’s like going through your family’s vacation photos months later only to find images that remind you of just how wonderful the trip really was. That’s how we felt when we ran across images of our time spent with John Dransfield.
John Dransfield is half of Dransfield and Ross. We were sad to not meet the other half of this creative duo, Geoffrey Ross. Maybe next time! When looking up a little background on the duo, we fell even more for their brilliance: John’s background is in fashion and Geoffrey’s is in interiors. To quote their website, they curate a “collection of home goods with an idiosyncratic mix of textures and colors, infused with their encyclopedic knowledge of the decorative arts.” What could possibly be better? And to put the cherry on top, they happen to have the most precious great dane named Cooper who gets his own tab on the website. We knew we liked them.
So back to the story, we were at the end of our day and boy, oh boy, were we dragging. That is until we rounded the corner and happened upon the Dransfield and Ross booth. We hardly knew where to begin with all of the incredible table dressings. And by dressings, we mean dressings…not just table linens. The collections just scream to be layered and assembled as you might put together the perfect party outfit. Here are a few that we especially loved:
If the linens weren’t enough, John began to regale us with stories. Where this idea came from, where that inspiration originated. Come to find out, they collaborated with Tozai Home for a collection. John gave us a personal tour of the collection! Enjoy these photos of some of our favorites.
Please pardon the photo quality but it’s difficult to keep up and take pictures. We didn’t want to miss a thing.
While we could go on, you get the picture. More than loving the collections that Dransfield and Ross are creating, we respect their process even more. Thank you, John, for being a high point from market! See you next time.
