A Fresh Take on Seating as a Key Fashion Element
HIGH POINT, N.C. Oct. 18, 2014 – A special chair is like the energy added by fashion jewelry. A fabulous necklace and earrings can make a favorite outfit look current by adding a punch of color and texture, and they always make you feel fantastic.
“A wonderful chair can really make a room,” says Dixon Bartlett, merchandiser for Norwalk Furniture. “Whether you’re creating an oasis by a sunny window, adding a splash of color by the fireplace or making room for an extra guest, a great chair is among the most versatile pieces in your home. As a fashionista, it takes on the role of a leading lady that also is a great place to sit.”
Throw in its first cousin, an upholstered ottoman, and the room can come alive with a fresh approach to room design. “Chairs and ottomans create the perfect canvas for expressing personal style. You can make a statement with bold colors and a standout print or go understated with softer hues, subtle textures or handsome leather,” Bartlett says.
Ottomans can be viewed as so much more than a pretty piece of furniture, Bartlett adds. “An ottoman can function as extra seating, a cocktail table or just a place to prop your feet. Our new Monterey Ottoman even opens up into a bed.”
Norwalk’s customizable chairs and ottomans are available in 800 fabrics, 200 leathers and 30 wood finishes with a variety of trims and accents, all in coordinated colors and patterns.
Among the highlights of Norwalk’s new chairs and ottomans are:
Nico Chair: Nico, a midsize club chair, has a decidedly 60s attitude with its diagonally stitched tight back accented with a center button. Exaggerated flared front legs, mid-width track arms and a fairly low-profile T-shaped loose seat make Nico perfect to use in pairs. Available in 800 fabrics, 200 leathers and 30 wood finishes.
Sam Swivel Chair and Swivel Glider: With rolled, flared arms and a contoured tight back that wraps around you, Sam is smart and sophisticated. A thick, plush loose seat cushion adds extra comfort. Sam’s modestly scaled profile and swivel options make it perfect for smaller rooms or use in pairs. Available in 800 fabrics and 200 leathers.
Dana Chair: Inspired by a fabulous flea market find, Dana is a mid-scale lounge chair with a tall curved modified-wing back that hugs the shoulders and a comfortable welted loose cushion seat. Gently flared bent-wood arms and high tapered flared legs add personality, as well as endless decorative options in Norwalk’s 30 wood finishes. Available in 800 fabrics and 200 leathers.
Celina Dining Chair, Counter Stool and Bar Stool: The French-inspired Celina has clean lines and gentle curves that envelop you in exceptional comfort. With a barrel back sporting spaced nail trim and beautiful maple legs, Celina is available in 800 fabrics, 200 leathers and 30 wood finishes.
Whitney Cocktail Ottomans: Sitting high off the floor, the Whitney Cocktail Ottoman has a modern profile with a fully upholstered seamless top, 13½-inch tapered legs and a simple wood apron. Available as a rectangle or a square, Whitney is comfortable to sit on and firm enough to support a serving tray. With its clean, spare lines, Whitney works wonderfully with any of Norwalk’s 800 fabrics, 200 leathers and 30 wood finishes.
