DARKER SHADES ADD DRAMA TO ANY DOMICILE
BY TIA KIM
Frontgate Jessie Leather Chair
This traditional wingback is highlighted by a graceful curvature and ample cushioning, but with a fascinatingly svelte profile. English roll arms and turned front legs add classic touches. With tapered oak legs.
Nicolette Black Queen Bed
Made of hardwood solids and birch veneers with resin embellishments—and with a hand-painted finish—this stunner somehow embraces modernism and retro chic simultaneously.
Meyda Lighting Warwick Chandelier
Gothic revival never looked better than in this stunning design, crafted in Yorkville, New York, which also integrates a rustic motif. Decorated with cast iron medallions and coated with a dark-roast finish, it’s a stunning 66-inches wide.
Jay Strongwater Porcelain Fluted Bowl
Made of handcrafted porcelain on a pewter base, this jaw-dropping design, almost too lovely to use, also features hand-polished highlights.
Costello Hairhide Round Rug
This six-foot patchwork rug, with distressed metallic finish, is created with dyed hairhide (from India), using a combination of handcrafting and machine processes. Unique variations in each hide mean no two are the same.
Ralph Lauren Chapman Embossed-Leather Box
The Chapman contrasts the rich texture of alligator-embossed leather with the sheen of lacquered silver plated-brass trim, and is finished with an ebonized wood interior. Just try to find a cooler place to keep your receipts.
Bernhardt Vivian Inlay Dining Table
Since its first days in 1889 in the foothills of western North Carolina, Bernhardt has become one of the largest family-owned marketers of fine wood and upholstered furniture in the country. This piece, of poplar solids with an ebonized finish, also features a patterned bone-inlay top.
John-Richard Collection Marla Buffet
Founded in 1980 in Greenwood, Mississippi, John-Richard is famed for traveling the world for inspiration. This buffet, handcrafted of acacia, wood composite, iron, and black glass, showcases reverse-painted migrating birds.
