Bringing together the timeless warmth of wood and stone with timely contemporary and transitional design, A.R.T. Furniture reported that it will unveil its newest whole home collection, Geode, a fresh, sophisticated take on today’s movement to more relaxed and eclectic interiors.
“Contemporary is the hot category in American decorating, but what we see trending most strongly right now is a casual, eclectic version of contemporary,” said Adam Tilley, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at A.R.T. Furniture. “Cold grays are giving way to warmer tones, lines are softer and more organic, and high sheen elements are becoming more understated. Geode is a beautifully crafted answer to a clear need in today’s interior design.”
Geode’s distinctive appeal is influenced by everything from traditional Craftsman designs to classic Asian style. In addition to wood in two rich finishes, the 61-piece collection incorporates stone, metal, smoked glass and textural fabrics in both curvaceous and geometric silhouettes for an appealingly tactile look. Positioned at the entry price level of the industry’s upper end, Geode includes bedroom, dining room, kitchen, living room and office pieces.
The striking finishes on Geode’s wood pieces include Kona, a relaxed truffle brown with gold cerused grain highlights, and Facet, a warm and bronzy metallic with a slight iridescent sheen. The pieces’ custom hardware ranges from gemstone-inspired knobs to slim bar handles to subtle embedded pulls. The mix of upholstery comes in a livable palette of neutrals, both fabric and faux leather, embellished with tapes and nail head trim.
“We’re proud to be able to add Geode to the already broad A.R.T Furniture line-up,” said Tilley. “As with all our collections, Geode benefits from our vertical integration, from technologically advanced construction to beautifully applied finishes to state-of-the-art warehousing and shipping logistics. Our goal with Geode is to use our capabilities to bring together organic motifs and contemporary geometry to create designs, that like the geodes found in nature, that are textured and earthy while still being faceted and glamorous.”
The Geode Collection can be seen in its entirety at the Spring High Point Market, April 22-26th, 2017, in their showroom, located at 200 Plaza Suites.
