Caracole Introduces Signature at High Point Market
A Bespoke Collection of Furniture for Connoisseurs of High Design
Greensboro, NC, September 22, 2016 – Arriving at High Point Furniture Market this fall is a new collection from Caracole that is a true statement in luxury.
“Signature” features a mélange of elegant materials that have been precision-crafted into unique pieces with regal style. Throughout the collection are dramatic statements for living rooms, dining rooms, studies, sitting areas and bedrooms in unique woods, brilliant majestic gold, indulgent leathers and sumptuously crafted fabrics. At once refined and aristocratic, Signature is a bespoke collection for international connoisseurs of high design.
“Signature is the highest end brand under the Caracole umbrella,” said Scott Smith, president of Caracole. “As with all our other brands, the focus of this collection is on the unique details. The pieces are designed to work together or individually, so it is easy to create a room with dramatic style.”
Signature’s design elements focus on groupings that exude more masculine or feminine qualities. With a decidedly feminine flair, The Parisian pieces have soft, gracefully shaped metal cabriole legs, brilliant gold bullion accents and deeply-carved ribbon details. More masculine designs feature intricate, bright gold filigree and metal fretwork patterns. Haute couture details are found on every piece, like quilted gold/taupe leather, shiny ebony finishes and finely-crafted hardware.
The highly-stylized cabriole legs on the 68-inch Parisian Console make a memorable French-inspired statement. Finished in shiny Piano Black, the exaggerated legs look like they are wearing brilliant gold boots that are joined by the collection’s defining Majestic Gold ribbon stretcher. The single drawer is dressed with two round gold knobs in a quilted pattern. This is a suave piece that will bring compliments from friends.
Graceful in its softness and refinement, The Ribbon is a bed that will wind its way into your heart. The delicately carved frame curves around the headboard and flows down along the side rails and footboard in decorative style. Not to be missed is the depth of carving that adds elegant dimension to this sumptuous bed. Bathed in a warm Gold Bullion Leaf finish, the free-flowing wood carving is the perfect trim for the plush crème velvet that surrounds the entire bed, embracing you in elegance. The bed is suspended off the floor on rounded trapeze feet. Distinctly French in style, this piece is the prettiest of presents for any bedroom.
The Rose Cocktail is the perfect size for intimate conversations over a glass of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. Its large highly polished circular base showcases a Majestic Gold filigree of intertwined roses. Elegantly topped with black glass, this is a statement piece around which to entertain.
The Aristocrat Dining Table is a piece of jewelry unto itself. Its noble, French lines have been elegantly simplified and further enhanced by a soft Majestic Gold metal band that outlines the entire dining table’s base. Unique eucalyptus veneer has been fumed with a rich Nightfall finish that enhances the depth of the wood’s grain. The top is a beautiful complement to the slender, undulating base and trapezoidal legs are wrapped in warm diamond-quilted leather. A true Signature piece, this table is elegantly proportioned at 98 inches by 50 inches, and extends with two 22-inch leaves to 142 inches for large gatherings.
The Grandiose Credenza lives up to its name. Bold and daring, your eye is immediately drawn towards the beautiful Nightfall-fumed eucalyptus wood and the intricate metalwork in three polished gold chrysanthemum handles. The front corners of the piece come to life in translucent acrylic, backed by mirrors, trimmed in gold and embedded with small polished gold flowers that glimmer in soft light. The black stone top is molded like a subtle mansard roof. The piece has two pull-out drawers for silver and serving pieces. Wine is elegantly stored on pull-out trays. This stunning piece is completed with conical legs with polished Majestic Gold details. Drama meets design in the dining room with this piece.
The Aficionado Cabinet makes the same elegant statement that a fine Steinway piano lends to your home. This entertainment/bar cabinet’s linear lines and rectangular shape are brought to life in a glossy Piano Black that is trimmed in Majestic Gold. The piece is suspended off the floor on square tapered legs with slender horseshoe-curved gold stretchers. Open the large cabinet doors with brilliant gold quilted knobs to discover the interior cabinet is radiant in Gold Bullion Leaf. Lit with LEDs, you can project your television from behind a two-way mirror. The three glass shelves are perfect for storing crystal barware. A gold mirrored tray slides out to create a reflective drink-making surface. There are four drawers, each of which holds wine trays for easy access to your finest Chateauneuf du Pape. This piece is as stunning open as closed, so you can show it off to your guests.
