Look WithIN: High Point Market for Spring 2014

Last fall we encouraged you to Look WithIN as we shared Doug’s picks for the freshest finds from up-and-coming and rebranded vendors. It’s a new year, and we know you won’t want to miss these selections, hand-picked for spring Market in High Point.

Here’s a preview of what you can see when you Look WithIN:


In an age where creativity, quality, and durability often takes a back seat to compromise, PENDULUX builds items of character and practicality, designed to have intrinsic value and staying power. We design our own products. We use fasteners instead of glue and metal instead of plastic. We make clocks that inspire the imagination and lamps that illuminate more than just the room.

Rojo 16

At Rojo 16, our uniqueness is the result of more than fifteen years of teamwork in interior design, always making each and every space full of creativity and singularity. We travel the world in search of the most unique art forms to offer our clients the best and most exclusive decorative accessories.

Creating harmonious spaces full of beauty and art forms is our lifestyle.




Matahari has been carrying a collection of hand made home decor products since 1997. Throughout the years, we have worked extensively with artisans in villages to continuously bring new products to our customers. Most of our products are literally made in small, remote villages by local artisans in their homes or small factories throughout South East Asia. We believe our trade partners are our allies in serving our customers. We treat them with respect, fairness and integrity at all times. By selling these products we hope to create economic opportunities and sustainable growth for our partners. All of our products are made from recycled or sustainable indigenous materials, and honor traditions and diversity of other cultures.




We are also happy to welcome back our fall 2013 WithIN vendors Face-To-Face Framing & Design, Swing Design, and String Theory. Read all about them here.

To Look WithIN and to meet our family of resident vendors, join us at High Point Market April 5 – 10, 2014.

Introducing: Traditions Linens

We are happy to welcome Traditions Linens to the jdouglas family.  Creative Director and Owner Shari Kline answered a few questions for us in anticipation of their debut at High Point Market next month.

Traditions Linens Coastal Stack

How did Traditions Linens get started?

Traditions Linens has been around since the early 1970’s founded by my mother in law, Pamela Kline. Traditions was conceived from a love for antique textiles and a desire to bring products to market that were appropriate for historic homes – a fairly specialized market, which still found a great fan base because of the quality and ability to customize. In the 1990’s we expanded to include imported finished product from Portugal, Israel and Italy to complement the custom made, Made in America products that we were so well known for. More recently, we have seen a major trend changing from people building huge new homes, to a focus on historically accurate old homes. Today we are known for offering a full collection of products for the home which reflect today’s casual lifestyle and which are appropriate for these historically accurate old homes – but meant to be used and loved. I have worked for Traditions since 1994 and served the company as president from 2003 until I bought it and took over in January 2012.


How would you describe Traditions Linens in just a few short phrases?

Relaxed lifestyle, Beautifully detailed, Meant to be used.

Traditions Linens Samantha Bed

Where do you find the inspiration for the Traditions Linens lines?

My inspiration comes from healthy doses of looking backwards and forwards.


Traditions Linens will make its debut with jdouglas at next month’s High Point Market. What can we expect to see?

Look for customer favorites like washed silk vintage velvet and washed Tuscany linen to be strongly featured along with our bestselling stone washed coverlets.

January Atlanta Market: Scenes from jdouglas

January 21, 2014 | By: Michael Nolan | 1 Comment

This season’s Market in Atlanta featured all hues of blue in textiles, accessories, lighting and ceramics. Blue wasn’t the only color popping in the Showroom, though. We saw colorful accessories tying vignettes together throughout jdouglas in the form of bright glass at Abigails, natural, colored textures covering handsome desk and bath accessories at Pigeon and Poodle, handmade parchment bound books at E. Lawrence, Ltd. and a rainbow of fabrics and finishes at Lacefield, Gallery Designs and BSC. Dessau Home and Bungalow 5 continue to reimagine classic pieces, making ceramics, silk paintings, sconces and other seemingly traditional accessories feel contemporary. We were thrilled to display textile options from Lacefield and BSC so customers could easily visualize their entire ranges, in addition to String Theory, jdouglas’ newest manufacturer showing off their line of rugs and pillows. We continue to see a tailored, natural look from several of our lines like GuildMaster, Noir and CFC and love the way their pieces highlight textures and finishes–excellent complements to the color trend.

Look WithIN: Preview what’s new with jdouglas at High Point

October 14, 2013 | By: Michael Nolan | 1 Comment

As Doug continues his perennial search for what’s new, he’s pleased to share that this fall, jdouglas will host WithIN jdouglas, our nod to up-and-coming and rebranded vendors you simply cannot miss.

WithIN, a fresh concept imagined by jdouglas, will highlight hand-picked selections from three vendors for a limited engagement in High Point this Market.

We’re thrilled to get to introduce you to our resident vendors and hope you’ll come see What’s New WithIN jdouglas this October!

Face to Face Framing & Designs
Face to Face Logo
Face to Face describes its style as “sophisticated with play, a southern root with a Hamptons style that is a mixture of classic and daring, French country to altogether urban.” Each frame, cross and ornament is crafted from repurposed wood—giving them the dust and color left by history—and the words that adorn many pieces are truly “soul-full.” Face to Face is located close enough to the ocean to hear the ship horns as they enter the inter-coastal waters of St. Simons Island, Georgia.

Swing Design
Swing Design Logo
Swing Design has created stylish tabletop, desktop, entertaining, and travel accessories since 1991. They utilize authentic materials and finishes that accentuate the beauty of wood, metals, glass and textiles.

The majority of their items are truly handmade, small-craft production pieces. They do, however, utilize modern, automated processes for larger production runs in workshops and factories where they have long-standing relationships.
