Geographic diversity drives new furnishing styles

Furnishings stalwart Stickley taps the Park Slope area aesthetic in Brooklyn to evolve its iconic Mission-style identity. It’s the first major work by Marissa Brown, newly appointed as director of design, whose aim is to complement the avid collector’s Mission-period pieces with versatile styles for the living room, dining and bedroom, fitting traditional with modern.

Coastal Living magazine collaborates with Universal Furniture to create a new residential furnishings collection called Escape, beckoning all towards the sun and sea. Among the new 60-plus items available are the Long Key console table and benches, which speak to the easy going lifestyle, with thoughtful designs and use of materials.

In its third collection for Fine Furniture Design, Biltmore debuts Quintessence, inspired by George and Edith Vanderbilt’s grand estate in Asheville, N.C. The 45-piece collection offers up two distinctive looks: a casual style, reflecting the relaxed comfort of the historic mountain resort’s on-site observatory and winter garden; and a classic style, inspired by the traditional architecture and original furniture found throughout the estate.

L.A. vibes are headed this way with a new collection by Kim Salmela for Norwalk, ready to debut at the October Market in the SALON area of the Suites at Market Square. Salmela entered into the partnership to create a line of lifestyle upholstery furnishings characterized by a modern bohemian vibe. The collection of 35 upholstered sofas, sectionals, accent chairs and ottomans offer distinctive looks targeted towards a younger audience.
