The upholstered sofas, chairs, case goods, and ottomans made by the Old Hickory Tannery come in a wide range of traditional and transitional designs that mix easily with classic and contemporary pieces. This family-owned, North Carolina-based company specializes in what it calls "antique furniture of the future" – in short, its pieces are built to last. Skilled craftsmen oversee every step of the process (the average Old Hickory Tannery employee has 18 years of experience), and the resulting items are solid to the core, with quality details like all-hardwood frames and eight-way, hand-tied springs.
Traditional style needn’t be stuffy: That’s apparent when you glance at the sofas and chairs produced by Old Hickory Tannery. Handmade in North Carolina, each item is the product of artisanal woodworking skills (and possesses lasting quality). This sale offers a variety of styles — everything from classic Chesterfield sofas to modern swivel armchairs. Also on offer are comfy recliners from Modern Milano and Motion Craft, as well as Wesley Hall's "Touchdown" leather chair and oversize ottoman.
Old Hickory Tannery may be one of North Carolina's oldest furniture houses, but its furnishings have plenty of verve. We love the dramatic options, like a grouping of settees finished in ebony-painted wood and topped with cherry-red velvet cushions, or the red-framed zebra-print chair and ottoman. Many come in fabrications that are exclusive to Gilt. And Pearson's chairs, from French bergere-style loungers to clean-lined, contemporary arm chairs, are perfect complements and counterpoints.
Founder of influential design website Decorati (which Gilt Groupe acquired in March), Shane Reilly is also an accomplished interior designer. Her style mixes structure and whimsy—sleek lines complemented by lively colors and bold prints. This selection, which she's hand-picked, reflects that aesthetic. Create your own mix with pieces like Dransfield & Ross' lacquer boxes, Lesley Anton's Totem lamps, and pedestal tables from Hellman-Chang.
Recognized by Fox News as one of the top ten design blogs of 2010, Stylebeat, the creation of Marisa Marcantonio, is an industry darling. In it, she covers stylish trends, emerging design talents, hot new home products, and lots more. For this sale, she took a walk on the wild side, curating a collection of animal-print-themed furnishings and accessories. As she puts it: "A dose of animal print adds instant attitude and exotic allure."
