Beeline For Bunny

I have just returned from the Furniture Market in High Point, and let me just say that I am completely INSPIRED.  It was truly amazing.  There will be many pictures and details of the market-at-large in the days to come.  However, for now, I cannot wait another moment without gushing about Bunny Williams. I was fortunate enough to spend more than an hour with her in her showroom, and let me just say that the person, Bunny Williams, is as gracious as her designs are inspired.  Without a doubt, it was a 'high point' of the market for me.
Bunny Williams and me.
Luckily for all of you, Eatman's is to be the stocking dealer of her beyond-fabulous collection, Beeline, with the first pieces arriving in a matter of weeks.   Due to her wealth of experience in the industry along with her personal flair for the simplistically elegant, her designs speak for themselves.  Each one is perfection and your home would be all the better for housing any piece from the collection.  Feast on these images and be inspired.
