Mediterranean style is steeped in old-world romance, marked by burnished woods and masterful carving. We kept the regal essence, but relaxed this look to reflect today’s casual lifestyles.
Thus … California Mediterranean. Imagine light stealing through wrought-iron gates, caressing tapestries and carved wood that are true to the style. Then see the look enlivened with splashes of potent color and streamlined silhouettes, evoking the easygoing Golden State.
It’s a lighter, livable look for la dolce vita, relaxed and relevant for today. It’s Ezra Pound’s modernist mantra, “Make it new,” in furniture form.
Create Beautiful Balance
In California Mediterranean, rooted-in-tradition pieces gain fresh new appeal. Like the heirloom-worthy Cannes Table, rising on a serpentine handcarved base and boasting an integrated lazy Susan. Simple, unfettered silhouettes create the perfect counterpoint … enter versatile dining chairs slipcovered in crisp linen. Light fabrics offset majestic mahogany with yin-yang connectedness.
A Textural Feast
Extraordinary honeyed amber leather warms the Blake Sofa, inviting you to surrender to its depths. Textured pillows and a shaggy Boucle Throw add dimension. In fresh linen, the deeply tufted Lucerne Ottoman presents tabletop-type versatility atop its traditional turned legs.
Blends of texture and color create intrigue in any setting. Italian-made paisley bedding gains dimension when layered with a quilted coverlet. And atop a diamond-patterned duvet in muted shades, Moroccan decorative pillows echo ancient Berber artistry. All create unexpected softness when paired with furniture anchored in dark tones.
While celebrating the ornate handcarvings and effusive details that mark Mediterranean, this new take is lighter, move vibrant and vivacious. Shop the California Mediterranean collection and create your own beautifully livable look.
