High Point Furniture Market- Introducing The Tribeca Collection
The world is not the same place. With the rise in and expectation of constant communication via blackberries, iPhones and social media we are living in a new and often times stressful world. This era of “always on” has lead to the rise of luxury resorts and vacation villas that are wireless free, literally no connections allowed. It seems we do need our downtime, our sanctuaries and respites from the pushes and pulls in order to recharge and recenter.
“Today more than ever people want their home to be a retreat, a place away from the ringing and buzzing,” says Comer Wear, Director of Marketing for Century Furniture. “Where we used to see homes built as showcases, the focus now is smaller more personal spaces where one can escape.” With its style rooted in serenity and sophistication, Century Furniture’s newest collection, Tribeca, brings this sentiment to life. The collection featuring thirty pieces of bedroom, dining and occasional debuts this spring at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC. Named after the exclusive and historic residential neighborhood in New York, the Tribeca collection is Century’s interpretation of today’s new social consciousness. Opulence and showy wealth have fallen out of fashion at the same time as our world has become hyper connected and chaotic. This perfect storm inspired Tribeca—a collection of modern sophistication, where designs are pure and sculptural and noted just as much for their refrain as for their subtleties in detail.
Graceful simplified design sensibilities are married with beautiful American walnut, the best time-honored craftsmanship and then enhanced with a rich soft hand rubbed finish. The cases are crafted of maple solids and quarter cut American Walnut straight grain veneers. American Walnut, selected for its minimal, controlled grain patterns, enhances the simplicity of each piece. The primary finish, Tribeca, is a clear warm brown with a clarity only achieved through a multi-step process performed by artisans of unparalleled skill. The jewelry, soft hammered silver, accentuates but does not distract. Each piece of Tribeca is a lesson in controlled design.
