They stole the show

After leaving High Point and all that there was to see, I have to say that the biggest story out there was a new found relationship between a boutique textile line and an old school furniture company.  The collaboration between Hable Construction and Hickory Chair had, and still has, everyone talking.  Now I'm not saying that Hickory Chair didn't have it going on before they teamed up with Hable; Lord knows with signature collections by Alexa Hampton, Suzanne Kasler, Mariette Himes Gomez, and Thomas O'Brien, Hickory Chair was already a strong player in interior design.  But by joining forces with Hable, their line now offers a younger, fresher vibe, and the ability to appeal to a more contemporary audience. 

Hable Construction ( is the product of family history.  Named after their great grandfather's road construction business, sisters Katherine & Susan Hable merged their business and creative backgrounds and introduced their fabrics to Brooklyn in 1999.  Known for their fabrics-by-the-yard, pillows, totes, and storage containers, Hable has also created lines for Barneys, Garnet Hill and Pottery Barn Kids.  Working with Hickory Chair is their first venture with a traditional full-service furniture line.

Check out some of their storyboards that were on display at their satellite office at the Hickory Chair showroom in High Point. 

And here is one of their playful patterns found on a campaign style lounge chair - SO FUN!
