While enjoying some holiday time at home this summer, relishing in some mid-Century Italian design can enhance this simple pleasure…
Introducing the Essex
By Lynne Paulsen, CID for Country Living Furnishings & Design
There’s dinner jackets and then there’s “dinner jackets” according to Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale. We feel the same way about our leathers. There’s leather and then there’s “leather”. Ours would be the latter.
When customers tell us about inferior leather furniture they’ve purchased elsewhere that has split, cracked, peeled and faded we empathize. And then we invite them to consider our beautiful leather furniture handcrafted in North America by Omnia.
Our leather is from genuine full and top-grain hides that have been aniline dyed to produce a supple, glove-soft texture that warms to the body on contact.
Introducing the "Essex" Country Living Furnishings & Design
Through the years, our leathers develop a natural patina that adds to its value and feels even more comfortable over time.
Only genuine top-grain hides boast the hallmark of nature such as branding, stretch marks or barbed wire that add to their proof of authenticity yet do not affect performance.
The leather has been preserved in the tanning process and needs no maintenance other than simple cleaning with a clean cloth and dusting regularly to eliminate clogging of pores. We offer a sumptuous array of tones that will complement the colorways in your home and fit with every lifestyle.
Styles range from the ever popular and generously proportioned City Craft, to the modern, slim-lined Times Square and the classic rolled arm Savannah, with or without nailhead trim. This spring we’ve added the Essex to our portfolio. It takes its inspiration from mid-Century Italian design. With clean, simple lines and understated elegance it features button tufting on the seat deck and back. We invite you to test out the comfort level and fit for your body by sitting in our leather sofas, sectionals and chairs. Deep lounge seating is perfect for some, while others prefer a firmer sit with a more upright rake to the back for support. Perhaps Ralph Lauren said it best when he said: “There is a way of living that has a certain grace and beauty. It is not a constant race for what is next, rather, an appreciation of that which has come before.”
We think about that when we bring new things into our stores such as the Essex leather line.
