Designer Sketchbook

The challenge was simple: Design a dream room around select products debuting this Market. Des Moines, Iowa-based designer Amanda Reynal exceeded all expectations.

Designer Sketchbook
High Point Market Products
Peacock Easy Chair by Kenneth Cobonpue, Alice Chandelier by Regina Andrew Design, Alexandra Bench by Maggie Cruz, Savannah X Table by Oomph and Blue Moon Table Lamp by Regina Andrew Design.

Amanda Reynal, founder of Amanda Reynal Interiors “When imagining this bedroom, I was inspired by the whimsical forms and mixed materials of High Point's fall introductions. The scheme is about contrasts in shape, scale and color. Crisp, deep blue wicker provides a masculine foil for the curvilinear lines of the chairs in front of the window. A brass-buckle detail on the base of the Oomph table similarly contrasts with the lacquer finish and intense color. The inset caning of the bench evokes an informal vibe on a structured, tailored piece. I love the ladylike, petite flowers on the drum-shaped pendant light and the imperfect speckled indigo finish of the symmetrical gourd lamps. All of these pieces have big personalities, yet work together in a layered and unpredictable way.”
