Theodore Alexander is to launch a new collection by acclaimed international interior designer Steve Leung at the upcoming April High Point Market. The ‘’Luxury of Serenity” collection represents a whole home lifestyle statement and is the first in a series of lifestyle groups planned for the coming year.
“’Luxury of Serenity’ explores the concept of a personal retreat with an ambience of warmth and relaxation,” says Leung, adding “With ‘Luxury of Serenity’ we have created a moment of tranquility, an indulgent personal space to relax, reinvigorate and enjoy life with family and friends. Throughout the collection inviting, gently curved surfaces embody this theme with cosseting armchairs and expressive backrests to evoke the feeling of protection and sanctuary.”
‘Luxury of Serenity’ has sumptuous and comfortable forms, elegant silhouettes and a restrained color palette. Materials encompass soft velvet, padded quilted leather, Italian marble, brushed finishes on nautical grade stainless steel and hand stitched detailing.
Signature pieces include the Covet sofa, described by Leung as “Beautifully upholstered in soft diamond stitched velvet fabric subtly contrasting against a leather body.” The Covet sofa is complemented by the Allure cocktail table where “supple ribbed fabric creates a distinctive coffee table that invites you to caress the beveled marble top
The Pirouette Dining Table is a study in movement, with a substantial marble top perched on top of a tapering leather wrapped body decorated with spiraling diamond stitching.
“Working closely with the Theodore Alexander craftsman, each individual piece in the collection has been carefully refined to achieve absolute perfection in proportion and rich tactile detailing,” says Leung.
Steve Leung Design has chosen to launch ‘Luxury of Serenity’ by Theodore Alexander at the international High Point Market in North Carolina, and is available to view at the Theodore Alexander showroom at 229 West Russell Avenue, from April 21st-26th
