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.
Traditional needn’t be stuffy—that’s clear on first glance at this collection of versatile seating and furnishings handmade in North Carolina. Pick up a tufted club chair, a Chesterfield sofa in performance twill, or a linen headboard with nail-head accents: Each is not only built to last, but also can be dressed up or down to jibe with nearly any interior style.
With the Games upon us, we’re reminded of how much we love London for so many reasons — not the least of which is its classic-yet-dandy design sensibility. Here, we’ve got everything from furnishings (from an elegantly simple gray-wool club chair to benches and sofas emblazoned with the Union Jack) to whimsical accents (who doesn’t need a “British Invasion Dust Pan”)? You’ll also find lighting, rugs, and some oh-so-British nibbles like sticky toffee pudding.
The best British interiors never look “done”; Anglophile style is all about effortless layering. To replicate the look in your own home, build vignettes one at a time. For example, pair a rustic leather chair with a few hunting portraits and Chinoiserie. Or mix pewter barware, vintage saddles, and Victorian urns. Top it off with a Union Jack, and you've got <i>Downton Abbey</i> — with a 21st-century twist.
