As an interior designer, attending a show like the Architectural Digest Home Show is a chance to see new products and ideas in person, and hopefully have a few "wow" moments. And The New Traditionalists' booth was one of those moments. The furniture is simply gorgeous, with exceptional attention to detail. If you love traditional style, the silhouettes feel comfortably familiar but the interpretation is strikingly different. Dozens of wood finishes and lacquers are available on the case goods. As seen in these pictures, the upholstered pieces offer limitless opportunities for creative expression. Built right here in Connecticut — what could be better?
In our fairly conservative area of Connecticut, where contrasting welt (gasp!) is often viewed by traditionalists as a bold statement, this is a collection to consider. As their website says, "if you think "traditional" and "cool" are not mutually exclusive", check out The New Traditionalists. Visit too their children's line, ducduc, for more fresh concepts. And a warm 'thank you' to social media maven and CEO of The Kaleidoscope Partnership Leslie Carothers (@tkpleslie) and CEO Philip Erdoes of The New Traditionalists (@CEO_TheNewTrad) for taking time to chat and snap a few pictures. It was a pleasure to meet you both!
