A Traditional Comeback for Furniture

The new Reverie Collection puts a fresh spin on traditional with clean lines and a glazed platinum gray finish. Hooker Furniture.

In recent years, the dominant trends in home furniture and decor have bent towards modern and casual, ranging from monochromatic minimalism to a Mid-Century Modern mix to farmhouse chic.

Prominent designers have declared 2018 as the year of the traditional furniture comeback. Make no mistake, 2018’s traditional is a more exciting traditional, and a style with a broader mix of periods and flavors that feel authentic and inviting.

In describing Hooker Furniture’s 65-piece new Woodlands Collection, Pat Watson, vice president of merchandising said, “After focusing on modern styling the past several years, the market is swinging back to traditional.”

Inspired by America’s great mansions in the Gilded Age, Woodlands captures the best elements of grand and elegant traditional styling and blends in the relaxed feel so popular today. The main finish, Heathered Lambswool, acknowledges the gray finishes of recent years but is blended with brown tones for a classic warmth.

Another collection debuting at the Fall High Point Market, Reverie, blends old world and modern design elements to create a fun and casual look. 

Reverie is defined by clean lines, a distinctive platinum gray finish and an array of fabric and leather seating choices.

A little further on the casual spectrum, the new Ciao Bella Collection is inspired by European farmhouses and reflects a simpler lifestyle.

“Ciao Bella is like walking into a small farmhouse that’s been owned by the same family for nine generations and is surrounded by the vines that sustain the family vineyard,” Watson said. The Timeworn Gray finish accentuates the historical nature of European farmhouses.
