Traditional By Nature
Caracole’s Chair-ish Makes Verdure Memorable
One of the most of-the-moment looks in home furnishings has traditional roots, but don’t be alarmed—it’s not your parent’s traditional. Today’s traditional offers intriguing forms, dramatic patterns and stunning metallics. In essence, Verdure creates the perfect landscape for reinvented classics.
Lush shades of green ranging from leaf to inky emerald set the backdrop for the Verdure direction. Representing growth and renewal, these verdant hues mirror nature’s beauty, drawing on its darkest shades for contrast and sophistication.
While tropical-inspired themes continue to thrive in home décor, Verdure offers a more refined take on bringing the outdoors inside. Deep greens are paired with warm metallics and the result is dramatic and glamourous. From the softest golds to brass and rose gold, these modern finishes update traditional silhouettes.
New Twist on Traditional
“Chair-ish,” a signature upholstered accent chair from Caracole, embodies the Verdure aesthetic. Its classic shape is updated with a hand-carved lattice frame in a retro-modern geometric honeycomb pattern. Extending around its back and sides, the exquisite fretwork is accentuated with a shimmering Taupe painted finish.
As comfortable as it is stylish, Chair-ish features a lightly tufted back. Offering a modern mix of fabrics, its seat cushion and seat back are covered in a neutral linen, while a dark taupe sateen can be seen peeking from behind its lattice-framed back and sides. Gracefully tapered legs add elegance and are capped with metal ferrules in a Whisper of Gold finish. Equally at home in traditional and contemporary settings, Chair-ish reflects the essence of Verdure.
The Verdure trend direction owes much of its appeal to its ability to unite nature and glamour. While organic elements add texture and freshness to a space, today’s interiors
demand luxurious touches as well. This transformative palette meets this need by layering verdant hues with classic forms, richly textured surfaces, metallic accents and fashionable detailing. The result is a dramatic assemblage of looks that convey livable luxury.
