"High Point Trunk Show . . . "


It has become a tradition each season during High Point Market that I have a trunk show to debut SMW Home's new textiles and wallpapers.  This year was no different - and I was delighted to be hosted by the lovely team at Currey & Company.  Bright and early Sunday morning - I began to unfurl my new textile collection, and await new friends and old to stop by and see!   

The Currey & Co. Showroom at High Point is somewhat legendary for its endless hospitality and the energetic crowd that it draws every day of market.  Amazing product.  Beautiful showroom.  GREAT music.  And some seriously good food.  I often use it as a hub on long market days - as a place to connect with friends and to be inspired! 

My sweet friend Tobi Fairley stopped by early
on to see what I had been up to - both personally
and  professionally.  Tobi and I have been friends for
over a decade (though neither of us has aged a day!)
and these regular markets always give us a chance
to catch up! 

Jennifer Habley (of noted Hampton's design firm
Habley Handler Interior Design), wanted to see what 
I was working on.  I think a few of our new Chinoiserie and
Summer Tartans might be amazing in one of their projects! 

 I always love meeting new folks at market as well!
And it's the perfect place to share adventures and
struggles with the people who understand

 So many of my new designs are based on
challenging both scale and colour - so being able to
share these designs 'in person' is invaluable.
Our Blackhall Manor Tartan is a wee bit on the
enormous side - and that's just the way I like it!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by - for samples, for 
possible projects, and always for a good laugh!  A grand
'thank you' to Currey and Co. for your gracious hospitality! 
And a special thank you to Beth Tilley Green for your
amazing photographs - and your always charming smile!

Take a look at the new collection - and let me know which one is YOUR favourite.

"Where Do You Summer (Tartan) . . . ?"


I've been super busy over the last several months - and I'm excited to share a few new treasures that we've created here at Scot Meacham Wood Home.  We've been importing classic Scottish wool tartans for many years - including some of our exciting custom tartans that I began creating right from the very beginning.  But, I wanted to expand the idea of highland tartans a wee bit.  

So . . . I began to imagine what I could find to bring to the conversation that was new and different.  So . . . I'm delighted to announce our new SMW Home Summer Tartan Collection.

I first started with the idea of bringing something more modern to our collection - and answer that unending question, "Do you have anything that isn't wool?"  So, now yes we do!  These are all printed on a cotton/linen - and feel as bright and breezy as a summer picnic.

Blackhall Manor Tartan, Wilcox Tartan, Donovan Tartan, 
Rutherford Tartan, Rex Tartan, and Mulcaster Tartan

So take a look at our entire new collection!  And let me know which of our new patterns is your favourite.
