Local, Global Flavors Inspire Furniture Styles

The globally-inspired Miramar Collection from Hooker Furniture includes this dramatic poster bed with simple, pure, linear lines in rustic oak with a smoky Arabica finish.

From casual modern looks with a world view, to chic rustic designs inspired by restored downtown factories and breweries, both global and local influences are shaping home fashion trends this fall.

A dynamic design trio we’ve seen in recent seasons — casual, modern and organic — again plays prominently in furnishings debuting in the furniture capital of the world. Those ingredients give flavor to the globally-inspired Miramar Collection from Hooker Furniture.

While design simplicity is the DNA of the Miramar Collection, exotic touches, along with the creative use of mixed materials, give an unexpected allure. For example, the Point Reyes Wardrobe, above, features an intricate, hand-carved sunburst-like design on its double doors from top to bottom.

 Along with global and modern design influences, a growing trend in the U.S., often referred to as “New Local’ or “Glocalization” also has a big impact on home fashion trends this season. As the “New Local” trend continues to trickle down from booming cities like Nashville and Austin, trendy urban hangouts are popping up in towns across the U.S. As the shift toward local charm gains momentum, many of these communities are experiencing a resurgence, where old factories are being revamped into trendy apartment buildings and the local coffee shop, craft brewery or distillery are emerging as the “go-to” hotspots for socialization and entertainment.

The panel bed in the Crafted Collection features aged leather panels with button-tufted centers and a low-profile wooden footboard in a rich oak wood tone with hints of burnished black.

Inspired by the rustic charm of restored breweries and factories, the Crafted Collection is constructed of poplar solids and oak veneers in a finish that is reminiscent of a bourbon barrel burnished over time, providing an authentic, aged, character.
