"An appreciation for artistry, craftsmanship and authenticity has greatly
influenced my career and my process, whether I am designing a space or a piece
of furniture. I find the skill, finesse and ingenuity of handcraftsmanship in
the U.S. to be unrivaled. That is why I sought out master American craftsman to
fabricate my furniture lines, and why I’ve curated a collection of furnishings
from Dering Hall that share those values." -Frank Ponterio
Lyre Chair, Rose Tarlow Melrose House - "The classic silhouette
of the Lyre Chair lends it to be a complementary addition to any space. Its
elegant skirted bottom and contoured arms add an air of gracefulness that can
be dressed up or down depending on the covering."
Rose Tarlow Melrose House - "With 12 arms stemming
from its center, I feel that the Sharpleaf Chandelier makes a statement without
overwhelming a room. Between the leaf design and rusty iron finish, the overall
feeling is rustic yet refined."
Sofa, Frank Ponterio Interior Design - "French-inspired but
American-made, the Agador sofa has a sophisticated, balanced presence. It
boasts a large-scale dimension with a distinctive open center, tufted
cushioning and bronze claw feet that lend unexpected character to a classic,
Regency Dining Table, Rose Tarlow Melrose House - "This 72-inch table
appears frequently in my designs, as it is handcrafted to perfection warm
mahogany wood. The sunburst top adds just the right amount of interest to allow
the classic shape to maintain its versatility."
Grand St. Andrews
Canopy, Bradshaw Kirchofer Handmade Furniture - "Each piece in the
Bradshaw Kirchofer collection is inspired by English antiques but is handmade
in the husband-and-wife duo’s Los Angeles workshop. This canopy bed captures
Old World charm of a bygone era but has the ability to transcend design trends.
It can fit in a master or a young girl’s bedroom based on finish and how the
bedding is styled."
Niobe Banquette, Marcali Designs Inc - "The husband-and-wife
team behind Marcali Designs Inc create traditional designs meant to be passed
down from generation to generation. I love the hand-carved wood back, tufting
and nail head detail and find that this rounded bench would fit as easily in a
cozy breakfast nook as in a formal interior."
Emerson Side Chair, Marcali Designs Inc. - "Through the extensive
finishing options, the transformative quality of this chair is front and
center. Whether it’s upholstered or all wood, the classic shape keeps it rooted
in tradition while the flared back leg, which drew me to the piece initially,
offers a subtle flourish."
Chic & Unique New
Hand, Old Plank - "The chair and ottoman
set is both comfortable and undeniably masculine. The hand-colored and
hand-woven leather fully celebrates Old Plank Road’s expert craftsmanship and
presents an equally chic and functional piece."
Custom Steel and Brass
Fireplace Screen Mesh, Old Plank - "This Chicago-made fire
screen employs sturdy materials like steel and brass with an intricate twist.
Though it appears to have a simple design along the front of the screen, brass
details abound under closer inspection."
Pair of Solid Bronze and Vitreous Enamel Sink Bases or Buffets, Old Plank - "Customized and created
entirely from scratch, this pair of buffets, or sink basins, represents the
vision and manufacturing skills of Old Plank. The brass accents stand out
against the simple lines of the black enamel exterior and recall Art Deco style
or statement jewelry of that period."
Draper Café Side Chair,
Kindel Furniture - "Kindel’s Dorothy Draper
Collection has allowed them to recreate American classics popularized in
previous decades. Adapted from the 20th century designer’s chairs for The
Greenbriar Hotel in West Virginia, the Cafe Side Chair evokes Old Hollywood
Chest, Kindel Furniture - "Dorothy Draper’s influence
comes through again with this chest. The half-round moulding outlines at the
base display her signature touch of femininity. Still, the chest, which was
originally designed in 1939, feels masculine thanks to the rich, bark-colored
