The iconic fashion designer Coco Chanel once said, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” We couldn’t agree more, and you’ll see just how true her statement is in our new selection of relaxed modern styles.
With an eye on livability and a nod to midcentury modern and Hollywood glamour, our designers have created an exciting array of furnishings that dispel any notions about elegant style being fussy or formal. The designs have an overall modern sensibility with low profiles, and sleek lines, yet they are exquisite in their details. What’s more, they’re surprisingly versatile and comfortable. Let’s take a look.
Minimalist looks, like the Braemore coffee table, get a casual feel from a unique wire-brushed stain in gray, alabaster or mink. Many pieces feature metal accents in satin nickel and champagne gold finishes, and modern forms, like the McLevin open cube table, are wrapped in fabric to become bold fashion statements.
The looks are unfussy, but far from unfashionable. A unique mix of materials like marble, mother-of-pearl, clear acrylic, faux shagreen and recycled glass, distinguish many of the pieces, adding unexpected texture and dazzle to clean, modern settings. The streamlined Rambert oak buffet serves up many chic surprises with fabric-wrapped doors and stainless steel pull knobs with capiz shell inlays.
A tranquil palette of blue, gray, white and sand creates a relaxing, feel-at-home vibe. These sophisticated neutrals are always fresh and can go from coastal charm to city chic. The lustrous Salena quilted bedding in mist blue and Loren mother-of-pearl stool are just a couple of our favorites for bringing these hues into your home.
Hand-tailored sofas and chairs with tall backs, sleek profiles and subtle curves deliver luxurious everyday comfort with understated glamour. The Channing sofa brings back the Deco curved sofa in a small-scale design that suits small spaces, while the Averill shelter-arm sofa, with your pick of a tailored waterfall skirt or tapered legs, looks stunning dressed up or down.
Whether your taste leans modern or glamorous, eclectic or classic, our new relaxed modern designs can bring a sophisticated flair to your home. Head to your nearest Design Center to see them up close and personal, or to speak with a designer who can help you create a simply elegant look of your own. Their services are always complimentary.
