New Traditional & Metro Luxe
Many people in upper income brackets are downsizing: to luxury lofts, apartments, condos, and the latest innovation in urban living condo hotels. Some are empty nesters who no longer need all that room; some are young professionals with no time for a long commute; still others are city-lovers of all ages who like being within walking distance of restaurants, shops and clubs. And while such dwellings have far less space than mega-homes, the space they do have isn t cheap.
Metro Luxe is international-scale furniture designed for cozy, yet elegant living spaces; it has the sleek styling, refined details and fresh finishes for which Century is known. New Traditional strikes the perfect chord between classic and chic. It has the comforting familiarity that we associate with traditional furniture, yet it also has a dash of lan that makes it relevant.
Mariette Himes Gomez
Like Mariette Himes Gomez herself, the internationally acclaimed designer, this signature collection for Hickory Chair is a study of elegant balance and contrasts. Her astute traditional perspective cultivated as a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, the New York School of Interior Design and as an associate of design luminaries like Edward Dureell Stone, Albert Hadley and Sister Parish is evident throughout the 88-piece collection. So is the characteristically clean, more updated style she's been articulating since founding Gomez & Associates in 1975. Crafted of the finest materials, and reflecting equisite details and finishes, each piece of this collection is a refreshing blend of classic style and contemporary significance.
