Love Emily Henderson? Us too. The interior designer is a force to be reckoned with in the home space, so when we found out she was doing a sale with Chairish, we couldn't keep that information to ourselves. Going live today, the collection is filled with Emily's personal picks from Round Top Market, a renowned antiques market. "Round Top is by far one of the best known markets with miles and miles of junk, treasures, and everything in between," says Henderson. "I typically never get the opportunity to go to flea markets or shows that aren’t local, which is why I am so excited about this one."
Approaching such a large antiques fair, you have to go in with a focused mindset. "My biggest advice is to browse for larger items first and then circle back to look through the smaller items," advises Henderson. "Big ticket items always go fast, as they are the first to be seen, so if you see something you love in the moment, grab it. Also, remember to look at shape, scale, and size, rather than finish or color. You can easily paint, reupholster, or refinish items, but you can’t change the shape. I recommend looking for good bones and don’t be deterred by old upholstery or a bad paint color."
While we all love the new, Henderson says it's important to incorporate the past into your home. "I think this year people are really investing in quality pieces that have simple and refined construction, an authentic feel, and are antique. After the influx of faux industrial, shabby chic, and antique, people are ready to see authentic and antique pieces in their decor that are inspired by those classic styles," says the designer. If you want Emily-approved antiques in your space, we recommend making your way over to Chairish, stat.
