The design world has been going green for several years now, but this season the green color story gets a striking makeover with the addition of warm gold accents and a trend towards darker, richer wood finishes. The new turn towards luxury provides a perfect complement to the cool malachite and warmer yellow-greens that have been showing up on fashion runways and in high-end interior designs.
Alden Parkes' stylish Stiletto Table is a case in point. Inspired by the sophisticated café society designs of the Art Deco era with just a little bit of Space Age modernism
thrown in, the useful little 24-inch round wine table sits on a three-legged cast brass base, also inspired by a stiletto heel, in a warm gold finish that matches the gilded concave edge of the top. The top itself has a rich hand-rubbed espresso finish, another important color in this season's palette as the greens get more saturated and more dimensional.
Alden Parkes, based in Jacksonville, Florida, is known for its imaginative finishes and its skillful combinations of materials, colors, and silhouettes. The aptly named Stiletto Table is part of Alden Parkes' broad line of richly finished accent tables that can be seen in their showroom, located at 200 North Hamilton St, Suite 110.
