What else would one expect from an industry leader in innovative design and lifestyle marketing other than a remarkable box to hold all of its treasures? Our tour of the Lexington Home Brands headquarters was just that and certainly a High Point Market fave! With an expansive product line which includes wood and upholstered furniture across a wide range of styles, the company’s portfolio of recognized brands includes Lexington®, Tommy Bahama Home®, Tommy Bahama Outdoor Living®, and Sligh®. As we made our rounds across three full floors of furniture, Lexington proved just what we had already suspected- they’re up to a lot, and it’s all brilliant. With two new collections premiering at High Point Market this April, our eyes and hearts fell upon many pieces we must have!
Lexington blends the lines of contemporary and industrial styling while still including the traditional aspect we love about their furniture lines. To prove this fact, we must share the debut of Sligh’s Cross Effect, an urban-inspired office and media collection. A few of our clients fell in love with this Intersect writing desk, and we completely understand why!
Cross Effect embraces asymmetrical design using linear elements whose styling has a soft urban edge. Crafted from quartered White Oak veneers in a rich umber finish, pieces incorporate metal bases, custom hardware and design elements in aged bronze, along with bronze mirror panels and touches of silver leaf. These elements are found throughout their portfolio, which includes writing desks, filing and storage units, office consoles and multiple media units. Expect to see some pieces in our upcoming projects!!
Totally switching directions in styling, Twin Palms from Tommy Bahama Home, blends island styling with exotic natural materials for relaxed resort living. The use of bold colors is what truly stood out to us about Twin Palms. Found throughout the fabrics, pillows and even furniture (like these chests and lounge chairs), the colors truly pop!
Lexington mastered the art of creating beautiful spaces throughout their three-story showroom, so much in fact that I’m not sure one would ever need to leave! Earlier I mentioned a remarkable “box” that makes up Lexington’s framework, this includes a small restaurant-sized lounge called the Monkey Bar. The fabric library is quite impressive too, with over 850 fabrics and 70 leathers to choose from for customization. And here’s a shocker, wait until you see the restrooms! Yes, the restrooms. They’re not your everyday loo!
Thanks again for the wonderful tour, Lexington. We’ll be back!
