Meeting Candice Olson

Recently, we had the pleasure of making our annual pilgrimage to the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina. Over 30,000 tradespeople make the journey every year to network and to shop for new and innovative designs and products, and of course we wouldn’t miss it! A few weeks before venturing to the market, we had received a invitation by Surya to meet and greet the famous Candice Olson! Candice Olson is famous for her HDTV shows Divine Design and Candice Tells All, as well as her lines of Kravet fabric, York wall-coverings, and Surya rugs. Surya happens to be one of our favorite and most popular vendors, and Candice Olson is one of the most well-known and in-demand interior designers in the field, so naturally we accepted. What a pleasure! We were first introduced over wine and hors d’oeuvres to her gorgeous rugs, which are 100% wool and decadently plush with rich colors and detailed texture. Her line is amazingly affordable for the quality, making these rugs accessible to anyone shopping for big style on a small budget. After the presentation, it was refreshing to see what a humorous, charming, and down-to-earth person Candice is. She spoke to several of us designer-to-designer, expressing the same concerns as everyone else in the field (late shipments, discontinued items, working on a budget, etc), while also expressing the reasons why we love doing what it is that we do; we love to create beautiful places that people can’t wait to go home to every day!
