As I mentioned, some of the details on the Hooker Furniture pieces were really incredible and thoughtful. Their designers have really taken a lot of time to make sure each detail is meaningful to the piece and their work really shows.
Let’s take a look.
This is from the Sanctuary collection, and from this angle, you can see that the piece has a lot of detail, but it’s not until you see it close up that you realize that there’s egg and dart trim that’s been gilded, antiqued mirror and beautiful pulls on the piece.
One of Hooker’s designers was in New York and spotted this tie, and decided to make a dresser with the same pattern!This harkens back to the menswear that’s being used in furniture design this season.
Hooker’s Alicante collection has incredible details that evoke old European houses and castles. This tiny church in rural Herefordshire, England has hinges that are very similar – as did the dungeons-turned-bathrooms in St. Donat’s castle where I worked.
I thought this was one of the most elegant and well-done table tops I saw a this year’s Market. And the book-matched wood and the inlaid compass rose really make this piece a stand-out. It’s attention to detail like this that will make this an heirloom piece.
Again, well done to Hooker Furniture for a really outstanding collection for this year’s market. And thank you so much for being my sponsor. I am honoured to be associated with your company!
