Furniture World News on

New Jersey base furniture Retailer Bograd's Fine Furniture, announced it has been selected as the first American retail destination by Japan-based high-end furniture manufacture Matsuoka. Bograd's will debut the Matsuoka International collections of heirloom furniture during a private, invitation-only event at its Hamburg Turnpike store showroom on April 27, 2010 from 5-8 p.m. that will feature an evening of sake and sushi tasting. 

"For more than 80 years, Bograd's has been offering its customers the very best furniture from around the world," said Mark Bograd, president of Bograd's Fine Furniture. "We are honored that Matsuoka chose Bograd's as its first retail destination in the United States."  

Matsuoka is the 140-year-old company known in Japan for its beautiful customized furnishings that are crafted of exotic materials and rare woods. Australian designer Christian Lyon has designed two new collections exclusively for Matsuoka International; the "Moderne Collection" is a celebration of Deco inspirations while the "Metropole Collection" explores a softer, feminine, sensitivity accentuated with rounded edges and curves.  

The Bograd's store in Riverdale, N.J. will display several Matsuoka International signature pieces designed by Lyon including: the Moderne Tortoise Commode featuring Zebrano veneers skillfully applied in an intricate hexagon pattern to cleverly conceal storage doors and drawers, topped with rich Emperador marble; the Metropole Opera Dining Table crafted of Silver Sycamore veneers in a meticulously radiating swirl pattern; the Empire Sideboard done in exquisite Celebes Ebony; the Torii Console in sumptuous Red Sandalwood; the Arc Cocktail Table crafted in Pearl Japonica and expressive smoked Bird's Eye Maple veneers; a Silver Sycamore Peg Side Table and Drum Table in scorched Paulownia. 


Matsuoka International president, Kevin Reilly and Matsuoka chairman, Taku Moritsugu, will be on hand at the April 27th reception along with renowned Australian designer Christian Lyon to speak about the significant heritage behind the Matsuoka brand, and the simplicity and detail of its designs.
