I am gearing up for a trip to Round Top at the beginning of October. I have a long list of things I am on the look out for, especially since we are going to be decorating a home for the 2014 Parade of Homes!! Can not wait!
One booth I will definitely be looking for is the company ‘”reworks”. You may remember I used them to make some lamps for us last year in the Southern Living Showcase house. You can see them in this photo on the right side on top of the buffet:
I had purchased the corbels at Round Top and then had reworks covert them into lamps. They were really unique.
Artists Chotsie Gregson and Willem Sypesteyn create new products from old elements and their products are really special. They both have roots in New Orleans, so their products have an air of classic elegance and timelessness.
All photos below from reworks.
I am really excited to share with you an exclusive preview of some of their newly designed products for Round Top at the Blue Hills Show!
First up, this amazing sunburst headboard which is made from architectural remnants and distressed raw materials.
Similar to some of the pieces above is this new Tripod Table which has a steel base and a Calcutta marble top.
This next table is made from an antique plaster ceiling medallion. Notice the detail of the medallion in the second photo.
These last two photos are of reworks new French-Inspired console tables. This one has gray French mid-century architectural artifacts and a distressed wood base.
If you are in Texas late September/early October, you should definitely swing by Blue Hills at Round Top to see reworks. reworks pieces are so special, they are hard to pass up. You had better be prepared to part ways with some of your funds and plan on acquiring some truly original furniture pieces that are also works of art!
I went to round top in april and thought blue hills was the best place to shop out of the entire day! cant wait to go again next week and will definitely seek out the reworks booth. thanks for the tip 🙂
Heather- We have been threatening to go to Round Top for years. What is the best time (dates) and stores or route to take for a day trip? – Shaun
The event runs twice a year- around April and October. It used to be about 1 week, but now it goes 3, if not longer. Some say get there early for the best selection. We are going on the first day of the Marrburger show (http://www.roundtop-marburger.com/showinfo.htm) and staying for a couple of days. But, by then several of the other shows, such as Blue Hills will have already been opened, and with antiques there is only one of each piece and the best items go first! I say make a couple of day trips out of it and plan to get there on the first day of a couple of the major locations!
