OCTOBER 2016, HIGH POINT, NC – In the new Melody Collection from CARSON by Marge Carson, clean, modern forms contrast with highly-figured veneers and metal structural elements to create a sleek but warm urban style.
Simple case shapes and stainless steel brackets in a satin brass finish are given artistic impact from beautiful wood veneers, Ropey American Black Cherry and Okoume Crotch. Swirl patterns including flame, crossfire and mottled effects in the Ropey American Black Cherry veneers give great character and intrigue to the wood. The Black Cherry veneers are complemented by highly-figured Okoume Crotch veneers with exuberant cathedral patterns.
The 20 bedroom, dining room and living room pieces are finished in Melody, a rich brown tone.
“The inclusion of metal design components in the soft satin brass finish lighten the collection and give it a sleek, Post-Industrial look,” said Tom Tilley, director of wood products for CARSON and Marge Carson.
The stylish look of Melody is designed to appeal to a younger, metropolitan audience in urban markets, while the beautiful wood veneers have a multi-generational allure. “The finish and wood story with the cathedral veneer patterns warm up and soften Melody,” said Jim LaBarge, Chief Executive Officer of CARSON and Marge Carson. “We’ve warmed up Post-Industrial Modern to make it more livable and welcoming.”
The simple, solid brass hardware is hand glazed to an aged patina, then accented with a bronze stripe to add warmth and artistic flair. The hardware models are sculpted by hand and individually cast using the lost wax technique.
