The Autumn Collection
With all solid wood construction, clean lines and functional appeal, the Autumn collection replicates the look of historical farmhouse with the warm appearance of reclaimed wood. Butcher block solid Acacia planks are wire brushed for a naturally worn look and a wonderfully aged patina, artfully created with modern woodworking techniques. The combination of rich brown heartwood grain, cream colored sapwood, cast iron tension rods and cross-bracing achieve the "form meets function" industrial appeal of these pieces. The substantial top offers strength, rich color and uncommon character. Frame and panel construction allow for natural seasonal movement of solid wood panels as they absorb and release moisture, expanding and contracting with your piece over time and reducing the incidence of warping or cracking. Hand-applied saddle carvings soften the lines of the dining chair and create more comfortable seating surfaces for dinner guests. The Autumn Dining collection shows as well on the concrete floors of a contemporary Manhattan loft as it does in a real country farmhouse. Both rustic and refined with clean lines and the appearance of a heavily weathered patina, it offers the appeal of vintage furniture without the hassle of maintaining it. One design "rule" that was meant to be broken dictates that your dining table and chairs should perfectly match. On the contrary, deliberately pairing your table with chairs in a different style or finish is a look that has become increasingly popular. Autumn chairs, with their slatted backs and wood seats, work best with modern, transitional or craftsman dining rooms, while the rustic beauty of the table can be paired with any style of seating, no matter the era.
