nuans design/kubikoff italy

Posted on Saturday, March 9th, 2013 by

we are always delighted when we get to be the first to share new furniture with you and this is no different! we recently became the exclusive denver-area dealer for nuans design/kubikoff italy and absolutely love their products!

some of our favorite pieces are kubikoff’s new take on the iconic mid-century molded fiberglass chairs. kubikoff has reworked them by instead making the seat of molded plastics, either in clear or white, or in wonderful wooly felt fabrics, and has a wonderful selection of unique bases for the chairs as well – weather you want something ultra modern or a little bit kitsch, this line has something for you.

in addition to their chairs, nuans and kubikoff have a wonderful selection of upholstered furniture pieces and tables, perfect for everything from dining to office use. this incredibly versatile line is sure to have a piece that is perfect for every home!

market trends

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2013 by

market is always a great time to see the trends that have been flying around for a while come together, and see which ones really make it. you may have heard that pantone’s color of the year is emerald green – and they’re really trying to make it happen. with sponsored events and exhibits around the color emerald, some of the vendors had their seemingly ubiquitous “emerald” corner, pulling in their few emerald colored products, but it was obvious – green was in, but not emerald. the greens that were everywhere were less jewel toned, more kelly green and lime green.

the big trend this year was mixing modern furnishings with more textural and natural elements like flat weave rugs made of wool and jute, organic pieces like tree trunks made into tables, and elements like floor pillows and poufs for extra seating.

in addition, the industrial look of metal, riveted steel, and leather mixed with linens and textural, almost burlap fabrics – made famous by stores like restoration hardware is still going strong. iconic mid-century pieces are now being re-made to match this style which is a fun way to get the vintage look without getting a knock-off piece.

and finally, know that color is BACK. without following trends in a specific color, across the board, vibrant hues are in. whether it be tangerine oranges, bright fuchsias or saturated navy tones, the more color the better.
