Country French with a Twist: Sonata Collection by Carson Updates Beloved Style

OCTOBER 2018, HIGH POINT, NC – Country French, one of the most popular furniture styles historically, is back with a twist in the Sonata Collection from CARSON by Marge Carson.

Pairing the honey brown Sonata finish with a painted Antique White accent finish with gray striping, along with some pieces combining metal and linen, the collection “has the authenticity of traditional roots that have grown into a style that’s right for today,” said Michael Delgaudio, creative director. “Sonata combines the graciousness of a Country French feeling with the more relaxed, yet sophisticated farmhouse looks of today,” he said. He added that Sonata offers “an acquired and collected look, with hand-hewn tabletop surfaces for tactile interest.”

The scale of the collection is appropriate for a variety of living spaces including condos, townhomes and second homes, and the lines are curved and elegant. The collection taps into a recent upsurge of popularity for traditional furnishings, following several years of a swing towards modern, said Jim LaBarge, chief executive officer. “Sonata fits the traditional architectural elements of so many homes today, but it feels fresh,” he said.

Sonata Highlights:

Pieces: 18 pieces, including bedroom, dining room and occasional.

Finishes: Sonata, a warm honey brown on Alder solids and veneers, is the primary finish. Secondary finish is a painted Antique White with dove gray striping. Steel in a Pewter finish is used on the etagere and mirror, with linen accents.

Hardware: has an old world, antique feel including beautiful pulls with back plates, and is finished in Pewter.

Lines: are flowing, curved and elegant, and scale of the collection is suited to a variety of living spaces from grand to smaller scaled.

Table Surfaces: are hand-hewn for a plank effect, offering tactile interest.
