Pun intended!

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:

The coloring and shape of the bottom placemat are so unique. The top layer, in darker orange, is almost like a messy basket. It comes in great colors. We ALL bought some for ourselves!

We are 100% on board with the malachite trend. Loving the malachite napkin with green ostrich placemat…and don’t forget to top it off with your sparkly Christmas napkin ring.

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.

The sharpened pencil mirror…John sharpened the pencils for the prototype. Can you imagine?

Tired of cleaning the antique rug in the kitchen? These are printed canvas “rugs” that you just wipe off. How great for a kitchen, laundry room, kid’s playroom.

Paint palette votives…

More malachite. Who says that all the fun gets to happen on the outside? We love that they put the detail on the inside.

Please pardon the photo quality but it’s difficult to keep up and take pictures.  We didn’t want to miss a thing.

An assortment with another printed floor canvas…the finial collection was modeled after their personal collection.

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.
