/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stanley Furniture, the industry's leader in the design of residential wood furnishings, proves that rustic elegance and casual sophistication are a winning combination with the introduction of European Farmhouse, an all new collection debuting at this spring's High Point Furniture Market.
"We wanted to create a look that was both traditional and fresh," said
, Stanley Furniture Company's VP of Product Management. "European Farmhouse is a marriage of what's currently trending in the market and the timeless designs and appropriate scale that we can all feel comfortable with. It's designed to represent a lifestyle that works in virtually any home."
According to Tilley, the collection is inspired by the bucolic Western European countryside of
. It features elegant shapes, livable scale and a mix of materials. "European Farmhouse is a collection that's collected. It matches and it meshes. It defies regionality," added Tilley.
The 45+ piece collection features a fresh finish palette and signature pieces for every room in the home. Two interchangeable finishes – "Blond" and "Terrain" – provide the foundation for the collection's canvas. "Blond is a natural, close-to-the-wood matte finish with a cream colored accent glaze, while Terrain is a rich, hand-waxed coffee tone with artisanal distressing. Both represent the subtle detailing that is a hallmark of European Farmhouse," explained Tilley.
The collection's palette also includes two unique painted finishes and two types of metal accents – each available on select pieces. "Chalkboard," a dusty black finish, and "Temps," a labor-intensive, artistic blend of French gray and cream add style and depth to the collection while antique pewter and brass accents lend a different level of sophistication.
