“For Your Home” host and designer Vicki Payne wanted to create a stunning contemporary ambience for the show’s second annual Philanthropy House in Charlotte, N.C. Through the use of warm color schemes and wood veneers, she infused the 30-year-old home with a modern, energetic vibe anchored in classic beauty.
Adding to the beauty of the house, the Philanthropy Gala held there recently raised over $18,000 for the Oncology/Hematology Clinic at the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.
The Show House will be featured in the upcoming 2015 season of “For Your Home” on PBS stations nationwide, beginning April 6. Hosted by Payne, “For Your Home” is one of the longest-running home and garden decorating and lifestyle shows on television.
In her quest to renovate and design the Charlotte home with both a classic beauty and contemporary flair, Payne turned to the Palisade Collection from Hooker Furniture, a collection that blends refined beauty with an eclectic edge. “The Palisade dining table and chairs provide the perfect mix of contemporary styling and classic flair,” she said.
The table reflects the clean simplicity of the contemporary décor, yet grounds the room in tradition. Crafted in highly-figured Walnut and Sycamore Maple, the tabletop has a Neo-Classic feel through the Maple veneer pattern, set off by ebony stringers. The result is an elegant starburst effect.
“The dining room was a hit with all who attended the fundraiser for the Levine’s Children’s Hospital,” Payne said.
At Hooker Furniture, we’re extremely pleased that the Palisade Collection could be part of such a stunning home transformation for a very worthy cause.
