Memphis–based designer Amy Howard worked as a decorative artist and mural painter before pursuing her lifelong dream: to design and make furniture. Launched in 1991, the Amy Howard Collection includes an impressive range of one-of-a-kind, antique-inspired furniture pieces and home accessories — from English Country mirrors and Venetian beds to gold-accented armoires, zinc trestle tables, and Asian-inspired consoles. Made by highly trained artisans, many of Howard’s wooden items feature her unique, hand-painted “Toscana” finish, which produces an elegantly weathered and timeless look.
We've got seating options here — from traditional wings to rakish zebra-print armchairs — for aesthetes of every stripe. And to complement the seating, we've also stocked this sale with ottomans in a wide range of looks. For maximum impact don't be afraid to mix and match styles.
If you want to achieve an elegant home, one of the best ways to do that is by focusing on clean, uncluttered lines on everything from the biggest piece of furniture to the smallest accessory. This selection features that organic look — from the sculptural qualities of Espacio's 106 Stool and Planum's Dante Swivel Chair, to Amy Howard's gently curvy, clear acrylic McEvoy console. There are lighting options, too, to finish the look. All go to prove: There's beauty in simplicity.
Add touches of shimmer and light to your home with this collection of metallic furnishings and accessories. Silver is soothing: The silver-painted nightstands add a note of calm to bedrooms, and mirrored lamps provide glimmer to an otherwise dark corner. Gold, on the other hand, is regal and bold: Shake up a space with shimmering leather pillows, ornately framed mirrors, and — for your holiday table — china trimmed in gold and black.
