Sketchbook – High Country
David Perry -- Casual Living, September 1, 2006
Traditional furniture with a twist is highlighted, while past influences are center stage, with several collections emerging from historical designs.
Country-style is no longer strictly white wicker, as darker finishes emerge, and wood and aluminum pieces hit the high country. For more, see Casual Living’s September issue.
|From the Wrangler Home Collection, the Corapeake rocking chair by Carter Grandle is crafted of cast metal but finished to echo wood construction.|
Colonial Mills’ Pinstripe Border rug, part of the Simply Home Collection by Janelle Lampp, features a patriotic red and blue stripe on the braided outdoor rug.
The Mount Vernon bench is part of a licensed line between Terra Furniture and the estate of first President George and Martha Washington. Crafted of cast and extruded aluminum, the bench can seat three adults on its 64-inch seat and features a ladder-back design.
