McLean, VA, United States, 2011/03/22 - Luxurious textiles and classic silhouettes combine to create a timeless line of premium, custom 8-way hand tied upholstery.
Drawing upon a 60-year-old heritage for premium quality and inspired by today’s sophisticated attitude, Clayton Marcus announced today the launch of their Kensington Collection at the upcoming High Point Furniture Market in April.
Stefanie Lucas, CEO of the Rowe Furniture Portfolio of Brands which includes Clayton Marcus, describes Kensington. “We wanted to develop a new line of custom upholstery that embraces a well defined lifestyle and offers our customers classic shapes, clean lines, luxurious textiles and a superior level of detailing.” Indeed, the Kensington Collection by Clayton Marcus (claytonmarcus.com) provides a unique confluence of sophisticated style, neutrals and precise tailoring with premium, handcrafted quality to present an utterly spectacular welcoming new line of fine custom upholstery.
Made from choice echelon wovens and prints, the Kensington textiles provide a wide variety of soft Belgian linens, tonal graphics, shimmery solids and much more. “We invested a great deal of time and resources searching for the ideal mix of textiles for this collection,” says Lucas. “They had to be perfect. They had to deliver on a specific lifestyle which demands rigorous attention to detail and sophisticated style, and Kensington fabrics do just that.”
“This collection not only looks beautiful but it is also built to last. We’ve engineered it with the same 8-way hand tied coil springs and interlocking frame construction synonymous with the Clayton Marcus brand. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted, constructed with the best ingredients and tailored by expert upholsterers,” said Lucas.
In an effort to authentically portray the Kensington lifestyle, a portion of the Clayton Marcus showroom has been overhauled to define the woman with whom this collection will resonate. The new styles include:
• Langley – A scatter back, bench seat and shelter roll arms with the option to accent with a wood trim;
• Gerrard – A three-over- three basic with diminutive roll arm and button front trim on three turned wooden legs;
• Brompton – An elongated camel back with welted base rail and pleated roll arms on three turned wooden legs, accent with large and small toss pillows;
• Sloane – A contemporary two seat, multi-pillow back with shelter track arms accented with nail head and a detailed skirt with trim option;
• Endell – A delicate, traditional legged, scoop armed settee accented with bolsters.
Look for Kensington to hit retailers fall 2011.
