More from Highpoint: Hooker furniture

Another showroom I visited at Highpoint Market was Hooker furniture.
Much like Century furniture, Hooker carries a variety of lines with something for everyone. Above is Harbour Pointe which reminded me of a charming Maine cottage.They offer more contemporary lines as well. I loved the cerused oak finishes and the streamlined form of this armchair.

Small details always make such a huge difference to turn a piece of furniture into something special. The turned edge on the painted wood headboard above starts to create a cozy space.I love a good nightstand (maybe because I don't really have one in my tiny apartment) and this one had a large top but also a great shelf for books. Notice the great hardware too.The side of this accent table was adorned with an oversized postage stamp and postmarks - a painterly touch great for an informal den; especially for someone who likes to travel.

The drawers of this distressed dresser come pre-lined in a pretty paper -that reminds me to freshen up my own drawer liners!



This charming accent table, in a rather old fashioned gothic revival style, is enlivened by a coat of fresh green paint as if you had just picked it up from your local flea market but without all of the work! So many good ideas for my own apartment here.

The accent table with the stamp design is a lot of fun, sort of like Victorian Pop Art.

Gorgeous finds - I envy the selection there. Such poor selection here in Calgary for great furniture. I love the one with the lovely lining already in place. What a darling detail.

Love this approachable line - so many terrific pieces. It seems to be a terrific melding of historically inspired and contemporary pieces. Love the cerused oak also as well as all the thoughtful detailing!
