Tara Shaw Maison - America's Mart Part III

One of my most favorite areas at the Market is the "High Design" section. It houses beautiful temporary showrooms dedicated to those designers that have very exclusive lines. Of course Tara Shaw was there, amid a backdrop of chocolate brown walls, with the most beautiful furniture.

It was so fun to see my friend Tara Shaw again! As usual her "Maison" Line stopped everyone in their tracks. She has added over thirty new pieces and her beautiful collection has over 75 items now. Let's have a look at some of my favorites:
The Italian Grisaille Panels were just stunning. You all know how I love Grisaille (to read my post on Grisaille click HERE). These panels were almost a perfect pair in gorgeous sepia tones.

Her new upholstered pieces were also beautiful. I loved this Italian Monogram Chair. It can be custom monogrammed to your specifications.
People were buzzing around the Baroque Canape - the back is removable so it is like two different pieces in one.

The silver leaf bench had a much more beautiful finish than my camera captured and look at all that hand carving.

The Italian Fragment mirror would be a fabulous focal point in any room - it's beauty really commands attention.

It was hung over this Italian Buffet. The finish of soft blues and golds were just extraordinary.

Of course she also had her signature lighting, but this Gilded Iron Corona Chandelier really caught my eye.
And the popularity of her small crowns prompted her to create this Corona on a stand. So many beautiful new things to see and wish for!! If you are interested in purchasing any of these fabulous items do let me know and I can send on pricing and shipping estimates.

By the way , my friend Millie, of M Design and Consultation, is now Tara Shaw's exclusive Interior Designer, you can contact Millie HERE. You can read all about my visit to New Orleans with Millie HERE. And my previous post on the Tara Shaw Maison Line HERE. To visit the Tara Shaw Maison website click HERE.

  5. Love Tara Shaw's sutff. She has a showroom near my house here in TX. It used to only be open to the trade but I heard it might be open to all now. I am going to have to go see some day.

  6. Gina,
    Lucky you! I am drooling over so many items I see here. I'm even drooling over beauties in the background!
    You should frame the pic of you and Tara as the beautiful Grisaille is the perfect backdrop for two beautifully coordinated friends.
    I admire a girl like you who can step out of a beautiful showroom and get up on her roof! I knew I liked you. xo Lisa

  7. Hello Gina!

    I have never been to the "market" and it looks amazing! I love the chocolate brown paint color. I am thinking of doing my dinning room in that dark color. I also love, love, the large panels! They are stunning and would love to find a spot for something like that! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!
