Ever casual and comfortable, American Cottage is well tended, accommodating and light hearted. A sophisticated combination of style periods, this is a melting pot of design that is refreshingly all American, designed in collaboration with the editors of Better Homes and Gardens.
Eclectic by design, the purposeful mix of styling, architectural elements and four finishes fosters an upscale, collected approach to decorating. For more timid souls, American Cottage can easily be configured as a loosely matched suit. A translucent Gardenia finish with a vintage patina highlights flat-cut elm veneers, sometimes paired with natural Cottage Elm tops and intermittently mixed with Cornflower Blue or Pokeberry. Design elements include touches of beadboard and storm shutters, scallop and diamond motifs, squash blossom rosettes, a zinc top and textured tin, and oiled bronze hardware.
Classic Home is rooted in Mediterranean styling filtered through a distinctly American experience. Designed in collaboration with the editors of Better Homes and Gardens, this is a collection created for the home that exudes old world luxury. Substantial in scale with clean lines that are layered, but not ornate, Classic Home is confident in its cultured European tradition.
A vintage cherry finish is burnished and lightly distressed, then boldly outfitted with an oversized round knob and back plate in burnished copper. Several pieces feature an optional Parchment finish. Architectural moldings are masterfully layered to gracefully frame pillowed panels, creating a commanding sense of depth and character.
Classic modern design reinterpreted for today, the elegant Modern Expressions projects energy and sophistication. For younger generations with a pulse on the world of fashion, it's fresh and new, while at the same time being fondly reminiscent to their parents. Designed in collaboration with the editors of Better Homes and Gardens, the allure of Modern Expressions is in its understated voice: soft, sexy and urban.
Linear in design, the textured grain of quarter-cut ash, with accents of laurel burl, is wrapped in a tonal Graphite finish that subtly introduces a lighter field, which seems to be darkly framed. Perfectly appointed with stunning earring hardware in bright nickel, the case pieces and chairs feature sassy splayed legs, while a plinth base creates the illusion of floating beds. Gently rounded beading is prominent throughout the collection, lending a countenance of graceful iPad simplicity.
