Read on to learn more about the human touch that makes them all the more special and unique.
1. Barrow Chesterfield Sofa
Our bench-made Barrow Chesterfield Sofa receives an artisanal touch during every step of its precise construction process. For example, the soft brown leather receives a whopping 12 layers of hand-applied wax that is then buffed to bring out the natural highlights, giving the sofa a natural gloss. It’s then held in place by a hand-applied nailhead trim, providing a beautiful accent along the front rail and arms of the sofa. Learn how our Barrow upholstered sofa is made.
2. Tobago Cocktail Table
Skillfully crafted from solid mahogany with an inlaid travertine top, our Tobago Cocktail Table receives unique decorative touches with a warmth that can only be achieved by handcarving. The careful attention of a master carver fashions the acorn finial that sits at the center of the stretcher between the table’s winding spiral legs.
3. Hardwick Tri Panel Fire Screen
Fine craftsmanship takes center stage in the clean and precise grid work that makes up this stately fireplace screen. Each piece is handcrafted from stainless steel and finished with antiqued brass or a contemporary polished nickel with a protective mesh backing.
4. Marbella Floor Lamp
Four draping leaves branch out to create a perch for this graceful lamp, while the twisted iron post elaborately winds to the base, covered in cast iron leaves. All of this intricate metalwork is hand cast by ironwork masters for a look that’s built to last.
5. Siesta Key Area Rug
Woven from all-organic hemp, fine jute and cotton, each rug has a hand-knotted construction. This durable and eco-friendly floor covering has a ribbed texture that highlights the ingenuity of its makers. It looks wonderful on its own or layered with other rugs for a more eclectic style.
