In the emerald green foyer (above) Corey employs a pair of ‘Sophy’s Chairs‘, ebonised and parcel gilt occasional chairs based on Regency originals. Between the chairs is  ‘Blaise‘, an ingenious mechanical rotating centre table.

Elsewhere in this magnificent home we see the ‘Radiating Parquetry‘ table  (below, centre) which adds a touch of English Georgian style.

Two ‘Ashford‘ tables flank an antique settee in the parlour, where their bold veined marble tops complement the rich green and blue colour palette (below).

Finally, ‘The Jennings and Betteridge‘ Table is the perfect piece to place antique pineapple canisters in a touch of whimsy (below, right).

      Theodore Alexander Opposes HB2

      Theodore Alexander celebrates diversity and tolerance as two of our fundamental principles. We are opposed to discrimination in all its forms, including that based on gender, sexual orientation, race or religion. Theodore Alexander is disappointed by the recent North Carolina HB2 legislation and strives to promote a welcoming environment for all.

      Our industry and design partner Jamie Drake echoes our sentiments;

      “I am extremely dismayed by the passage of HB2. I feel lucky to live in a modern world, and work in an industry that has been open to all for years. The design industry is one of inclusiveness and individuality. I implore the people of North Carolina to demand of their elected representatives that the law be repealed immediately, and reverse this step backwards.”

      At April Market Theodore Alexander launches Michael Berman at Theodore Alexander. Berman states:

      “I have always believed in approaching life with kindness, love and respecting differences without discrimination.

      On March 23rd, North Carolina’s General Assembly proposed and passed the House Bill 2 (HB2) and Gov. Pat McCrory signed it into law.  HB2 blatantly discriminates against LGBTQ people and this is unacceptable.

      As a symbol of support and solidarity for our design community and for basic freedom from discrimination in North Carolina and throughout our country, I am pleased to partner with Theodore Alexander in donating funds to The Trevor Project.  The Trevor Project focuses on crisis and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth while helping many young and talented individuals who are desperate to be heard, understood, work and live within safe environments.“

      http://www.thetrevorproject.org

      Please join us in the stance against HB2 by speaking out, continuing to support and patronize the many manufacturers, designers and tradespeople in High Point that have always stood up for and believed in the beauty of diversity.

            TA to Launch Michael Berman’s ‘Califolio’ Collection at High Point Market

            Theodore Alexander is to launch a new collection by interior designer Michael Berman at the upcoming April High Point Market. ‘Califolio’ by Michael Berman for Theodore Alexander is a whole home collection.

            “Drawing on themes that are synonymous with the spirit and design of urban coastal living; from the every day access to beaches, mountains, deserts and city dwelling, I have assembled a diverse combination of designs and original finishes,” writes Berman. “Michael Berman for Theodore Alexander is the essence of the casual living we have here on the Pacific coast. It conjures up imagery of Indoor-Outdoor living and the restraint of ornamentation and the eclectic use of materials in California.”

            The collection includes clean lines, modern shapes, softly tailored upholstery and well scaled occasional pieces accompanied by unique finishes and a color palette, which communicates the light airy style of southern California living.  ‘Califolio’ is much like its inspiration, a perfect mix of glamour and simplicity. “To dress the collection we’ve selected lush textiles that cool the skin, warm the heart and dazzle the eyes,” adds Berman.

            Signature items include the Collins Dresser in streamlined solid oak, the Balboa Bookcase in ultra-suede, lacquer and oak, and the Flint Table.

            “I love the way the Flint Table brings an organic element to the line. I’ve always loved the concept of wabi-sabi and the combination or textured wire brushed oak in a stain we call ‘Sandalwood’, along with the ‘foundry’ bronze finish on the base, keep this piece humble and modern, “ says Berman. He continues, “Each piece is designed to be used individually or in a suite of furnishings.  There is a thread that runs through this collection that incorporates my modernist influence and credo:  restraint, quiet luxury and effortless comfort.”
