                                                          Media contact: Nicole Atkinson


American Leather’s new free-flowing shapes are reminiscent of forms found in nature. The Nicholas chair is organic in nature, with its exposed pecan wood back and legs in a natural finish…further lending itself to a from-the-earth vibe. It is shown in a carmel-colored faux shearling that embodies the Scandinavian design style, Hygge, which brings warmth and coziness to a space by adding a soft plush texture to the shape of the chair.  The Kobe Wing Swivel is a modern sculptured silhouette of intentional exaggerated shape. A modern take on a classic wing chair, Kobe marries a Scandinavian design influence with clean lines and modern curves.

A 38-piece lifestyle collection, Surrey Hills, tops Stickley’s introductions for spring 2022. It offers a new expression of Stickley Arts and Crafts styling by way of the English makers who created the movement. Those designers made nature a centerpiece of the home, and Surry Hills brings nature indoors in a similarly fresh, organic way. The collection is made in America in quarter-sawn white oak. Design details include generous posts, through-tenons and bow tie inlay.  However, the traditional spindles and reverse tapers are replaced by a framed lattice design iconic to its English cousin. Satin brass pulls and delicate ferrules add a glint of sunlight, and vegan leather and recycled fabrics lend sustainable beauty. Stickley’s 23rd Collector Edition piece is the Meadowflower Cabinet, a versatile, multi-room piece with storage and a functional surface. New fabrics in Stickley upholstery are organic and textural, ranging from linen looks to chenilles and faux shearlings. Of the 59 new fabrics, 31 have performance finishes and 11 are sustainable constructions. Color palettes are built around the lightest neutrals, along with a range of blues and spicy, natural orange tones.
