Today as I was giving thought to our Fall 2009 launch of the new introductions to the Alexa Hampton Collection by Hickory Chair, I found a wonderful profile/interview on All The Best blog where our dear friend, Alexa is featured! Alexa is an amazing mother, wife, designer, artist and business woman!
Her collection, launched in April 2005, has classic roots with skilled proportion, scale and geometry while focused upon comfort and easy living. Prior to the launch of her collection, we had enjoyed working with Alexa to add some very special pieces to the Mark Hampton collection that her late father had launched with Hickory Chair in 1988.
The beauty of these two collections are the timeless forms that have been thoughtfully scaled for people and their homes. Because of the great scale, proportion and classic style, the pieces from the Alexa Hampton collection as well as the Mark Hampton collection are relevant whether they are dressed formal or modern for the interior for which they have been selected. The artisans and craftsmen at Hickory Chair can then personalize the pieces through countless finish, hardware and upholstery details.
Shown left is the 5345-18 Regency Lamp Table by Alexa Hampton for the Mark Hampton Collection. The original edition is standard in Medium Mahogany finish with hand applied Gold Leaf decoration. The table below has been painted in Antique Ivory finish that gives it a very modern personality. The table below in English Antique finish that gives the piece the character of an antique with its hand burnishing, wear marks and antique finish. The choice is yours in just 2-4 weeks from order!
