Cadence Collection: 'New Traditional' Collection Offers Livable Luxury and Fresh Twist on Classic Design

OCTOBER 2017, HIGH POINT, NC – The Cadence Collection from CARSON by Marge Carson is on the cutting edge of today’s ‘New’ or ‘Neo’ Traditional classically-inspired designs simplified for today’s less formal lifestyles. With interesting, figured woods such as Mahogany solids, Ropey American Black Cherry and European Mappa Burl, Cadence will effortlessly integrate into traditional or transitional interiors with an easy-to-live-with comfort.

“Cadence offers casual elegance and livable luxury,” said Jim LaBarge, chief executive officer of Marge Carson. “This collection will appeal to customers with an understated decorating approach who desire furniture that will blend well with their existing furniture, flooring and cabinetry,” added Tom Tilley, director of wood products for Marge Carson.

While the 28-piece collection of bedroom, dining room and occasional furniture is understated, it also features dramatic highly-figured veneers that will make each piece distinct. “The Ropey Cherry veneers with fiddleback and swirl patterns, and the Mappa Burl, which is prized for its rarity and knot-cluster veneers, will make each piece unique, as the wood occurs in nature,” Tilley said. “The eclectic use of a variety of woods, finishes and materials supports today’s desire for personalized interiors that reflect the homeowner’s sense of style and the unique lifestyle patterns of each room.”

Cadence, a soft brown, with a lightness and clarity that shows off the figured veneers, is the primary finish in the collection. The main accent finish is Truffle, a dark brown-black with rub-through. Antique brass and bronze are also used as accent finishes. Several pieces use Absolute Black marble for tactile and visual appeal. The hardware is in an antique brass finish that blends well with the primary wood finishes.


Cadence Refectory Table

Extends to 108 inches with two self-storing leaves. The scale and functionality of this design make it perfect for small spaces in normal use, converting to a valuable work surface for large group dining or projects requiring additional surface space. The top is adorned in beautiful Ropey Cherry veneers framed by an ebonized inlay line and bordered by quartered cherry veneers.


Cadence Sideboard

This versatile accent item combines hand-polished cherry and mahogany drawer and shelf storage with an antique brass top gallery which frames an Absolute Black marble top insert, perfect for entertaining. Decorative crossing ornamental brass rods accent the center section.


Cadence Cocktail Table

Notable for its delicate scale and ambitious mix of shapes and materials, this distinctive cocktail table top features an inlaid diamond pattern of Mappa Burl veneers with an ebonized inlay border stripe. The iron base is finished in a bronze tone and features a decorative ribbon pattern.


Cadence Drawer Chest

Due to its versatile scale, this type of chest is a practical addition for many rooms. It’s an ideal storage piece for smaller bedrooms or can become an important accent piece for foyers, living rooms or as a multi-functional bedside chest. The top and feet are embellished by antique brass molding and ferrules.


Cadence Panel Bed

Channeled upholstery on the headboard and footboard is accented by antique brass nails and antique brass ferrules on the footboard feet.


Cadence Entertainment Console

Designed for form and function, this handsome 4-door cabinet is imposing without being flashy. Its obvious use is for storage and as a base for today’s large screen televisions, but its 19-inch depth also works in many applications in dining and living areas. The deeply incised diamond motif on the solid Mahogany doors gives the piece dimension and enables an interesting shadowing effect for the Cadence finish. The bronze finished metal base lightens the case and adds contemporary interest.
