Elegance It is the essence of timeless sophistication. A seamless composition of quintessentially classic design elements, reinterpreted through streamlined scale and shape. Luxurious yet beautifully livable. A cosmopolitan mix of ornate and clean woods paired with chic, enduring fabrics.
Modern Experience its distinction in our sense of the word. A base of classicism layered with contemporary impressions in pattern, form, and finish. An aesthetic sense of balance that is pleasing to the eye. The art of the understatement. An oasis of calm. Simplicity and functional are key.
Romance Inspired by distinguished European furniture designs, this look delivers bespoke charm minus the fuss. It's a fresh take on pretty that harmoniously blends carved woods and handcrafted finishing details with dressmaker fabrics. An air of enchanting nostalgia is achieved with layers of rich texture, curvaceous silhouettes, and antiques-inspired accessories.
Explorer Channel a sense of adventure through furnishings and accessories that conjure images of world travel. The feeling is relaxed eclecticism. It comes to life through textural variations, intricately detailed woods, global-inspired fabrics, and natural fibers. In rural or urban settings, the spirit of this lifestyle fits right in.
Vintage A visually engaging mix of color and texture. A masterful display of the art of juxtaposition. Its thoughtful, collected vibe springs from a peaceful coexistence of seemingly unrelated elements. An eye-catching interplay of sunwashed fabrics, distressed finishes, and bold and graphic patterns adds an element of surprise to any room.
