Monkeying Around

With High Point Market being all the talk in the interior design world right now, it is only fitting to be thinking about furniture (and lighting).  I love the designs from Clayton Oxford, not only because they are beautiful and influenced by Clayton’s global travels, but also because they are sustainable.  Open year round in Dallas, Texas, the North Carolina showroom was open this past week during High Point Market.

Clayton Oxford Table

I can imagine this table in a contemporary dining room.  Hand crafted of recycled plantation hardwoods and stainless steel legs, it has great contemporary lines and is rich in its simplicity.

Clayton Oxford Monkey Chandelier

How much fun is this Monkey Chandelier hand crafted with various types of shell inlays?  I know you’re thinking this is perfect in the corner of a little boy’s room, but wouldn’t it be cheeky in your front Foyer?  What a great cocktail party talking point!

Island Light

Another great ceiling fixture, this Island Light made of shell inlay and stainless steel would look super sleek over a pool table.

Clayton Oxford Monkey Pod Wood Barstool

Fact is I just love the idea of saying Monkey Pod Wood.  This barstool has such contemporary lines while being organic and handcrafted.  I see these barstools warming up to a cool and sleek gleaming stainless steel bar.

Clayton Oxford Stainless Steel Chair

Speaking of sleek modern stainless steel, this accent chair is handcrafted and hand polished.  It’s not every day you can see your reflection in a chair.  I see this pulled up next to a black velvet sofa in an ultra modern gentleman’s library where the bookcases are backed in leather.

Hope you enjoyed this tour through one of High Point’s many showrooms.
