Hammary announced that it will introduce five occasional furniture collections at High Point Market this spring. Multipurpose groups feature mixed materials and reclaimed Pine.
“Each piece from these new collections has the potential to completely enhance the look and feel of a room,” said Randy Huff, vice president of merchandising for Hammary. “We wanted to bring versatile designs to consumers so they could pair as much as they want or mix and match for a more eclectic look.”
Inspired by the latest trend in home furnishings, Junction is the marriage of modern and traditional, and form and function. For the style-conscious consumer seeking an urban farmhouse vibe, this rustic expression of modern celebrates common materials that Hammary fuses in its offerings, such as pine solids and veneers, reclaimed wood solids, metal tubing and zinc. Exposed structural details and industrial repurposed objects are set in contrast to a clean and modern background, which is perfect for today’s casual lifestyle. Details such as timber frame braces, exposed wheels, metal plates, and marble all contribute to this new look. In total, Junction comprises six wood finishes and three metal finishes making it one of Hammary’s largest introductions in recent years.
As a sophisticated, contemporary collection, Sagewood pairs charred pine and burnished steel with gold undertones and glass. Charred pine, known as Shou-sugi-ban or “burnt cedar” is an ancient Japanese process for finishing and hardening pine or cedar, which adds a warm textured look to the wood while both antiquing and preserving the timber. Industrial-inspired design elements are expressed in gold steel and bold, charred planked pine with blackened low-sheen and clear finish. The central feature of Sagewood is the artisan-inspired finish on charred solid planked pine surfaces framed by external double steel side frames. Amid minimalist hints, Sagewood is a modern match for any contemporary décor.
Outland, a five-piece collection comprised of hardwood solids and flat cut oak veneer, is an updated traditional collection of tables highlighted by the turned legs reminiscent of classic architecture. Couple this with the weathered and lightly distressed finish and the result is one that meshes well in any home. This collection utilizes both drawers and shelves in the tables to provide function and storage benefits.
The cocktail tables also have casters to allow for ease of movement. The finish on Outland is a taupe gray hue with light distressing to add character, and drawer knobs feature an antique pewter finish.
Blanton combines casual and rustic materials used on clean bases. The collection features rectangular flat metal tubing on rustic pine veneers with added saw marks on tops and shelves. Through external frames and the merging of textures, Blanton creates a minimalist, airy look. The four-piece collection includes a cocktail table with removable casters for easy mobility, an end table with a lower shelf, a sofa table and a small round accent table to complete the group.
Soft modern in styling, Booker is a three-piece table group that incorporates both wood and metal materials. A versatile round cocktail table with casters allows for easy movement. Additionally, a built-in shelf provides additional storage possibilities. The finish is a warm low-sheen walnut color with minimal distressing, with metal legs finished in a burnished gray with undertones and highlights of pewter and brass.
