A couple of months in the past, I partnered with The New Traditionalists, a incredible furnishings model primarily based in New York. They do all of their manufacturing in New England and imagine in superbly made, extremely customizable items. The main bedroom in our new home is bigger than our outdated one, however we’re sharing a closet on this home and had been in want of a bit extra storage. As I looked for a dresser or credenza that might swimsuit our wants, I struggled to seek out the best piece. As such, it was serendipitous that I had just lately been in New York and popped into The New Traditionalists showroom on the New York Design Heart and was reminded of their stylish assortment of casegoods and their capacity to customise absolutely anything.
I had all the time appreciated their Credenza No. 17 for its up to date Louis XVI type legs. This specific piece blends conventional and fashionable type components so nicely. Fortunately, the size had been best for the spot in our bed room in want of a brand new piece.
The following step was to work with Maria of their Shopper Companies division who was tremendous useful in sending me a wide range of finish samples that labored with the general look I wished. At first, I wasn’t positive if I wished a white or grey painted end or a darkish wooden stain. I ended up going with their Black Stain on Walnut end and chosen Moore & Giles’ Papillon leather-based in Wisteria for the drawer insets. The leather-based provides an important trace of distinction and texture to the piece. The ultimate determination was the hardware, which was troublesome as a result of they’ve so many enjoyable kinds. I opted for a traditional, vintage brass ring pull.
My main bedroom is almost full. I can’t present you the entire area but as a result of it’s underneath embargo for my e-book, however you’ll be able to see how nicely the impartial finishes of the brand new credenza work with among the materials within the area, together with the Les Touches material on my gilt bench and the Olivine Silk Velvet bolster pillows that sit on it.
The No. 17 Credenza options loads of storage by means of 4 giant drawers and 5 smaller ones.
