Our new catalog cover takes us to an inviting suburban home outside the city of Richmond. Here we created a real life, no nonsense American industrial design aesthetic using natural materials like cowhide, rope, reclaimed wood, burlap and forged iron in simple forms without ornamentation. This simplicity enables the integrity of the raw materials to show, giving us an enduring design that combines function with casual comfort, the perfect mix for family living. Regardless of where your home is, you too can enjoy an urban lodge appeal with the warm industrial feel we call Modern Rustic Luxe. Hereâ€™s the recipe.
The color palette for the furnishings is natural and neutral. Visual interest is provided by the variety of textures used. The art and accessories follow real life themes featuring airplanes, city maps, architectural drawings, globes, decoys and repurposed vintage objects.
Over the hardwood floor, the room is grounded by a black and ivory Connect the Dots Dhurrie Rug. Flatweave rugs have become very popular floorcoverings for their durable construction, simple geometric patterns, and a huge variety of color options, all at an affordable price. For accent and softness a natural brindle Cowhide RugÂ adds a luxurious touch in front of the fireplace.Â Layering an animal hide, sheepskin or plush rug over a flatweave adds an accent in your seating area and soft texture underfoot.
The distinguished lighting fixtures selected for the room combine earthy bronze metal finishes with simple modern shapes for refined style. Our exclusive Metal Strap Globe Lantern, has salvage yard character with an upscale candle cluster within its orbiting metal straps. The Industrial Rope and Iron SconcesÂ featured over the fireplace add a rustic touch with rope details.
Providing additional lighting, a Keyhole Ring Table Lamp, has sculptural character with its sleek shape available in 5 finishes to suit any dÃ©cor.Â I am sure you noticed the lighted @ symbol; it is made of a distressed galvanized metal, that adds a whimsical note to the familiar technological symbol.Â The combination of form and function is apparent in the console featured with reclaimed wood shelving supported by an arc shaped iron base.Â With a durable iron base and rustic wood shelves, worries about scratches can be kept to a minimum.
A stately modern wing chair, invites you to snuggle in with its vintage velvet upholstery accented in antique brass nailhead trim. The curved outside chair back is covered in dark faux textured leather for easy care living. Our custom oversized lumbar pillow adds a personal touch as it defines the longitude and latitude of Richmond in chic rustic style. A set of nesting tables, made of crosscut tree sections on iron slider bases add an organic flair to the scene, offering portable chair side convenience.
Selected wall art personalizes the room with an interest in the aeronautical industry from our Airplane Triptych Oil Painting, and a map of our fair city over the mantle. Reproduction City Maps are also available of Chicago, San Francisco, and New York City in addition to Richmond.Â The look of Modern Rustic Luxe brings warmth to industrial designs with a contemporary twist on rustic elements for a luxurious casual lifestyle that suits many personalities. Our back cover kitchen setting follows the theme with reclaimed wood and iron elements, but adds a touch of bright color in whimsical red fringe on the repurposed cotton denim flatweave rug.
