With styling straight from the European Continent, Villa Sophia merges classic continental styling with casual elements. The result is attractive, comfortable furniture which is definitely not your grandmother’s traditional furniture. The lead characters in this period piece are the beds, both of which make strong statements. The shelter bed is a show-stopper, with curved posts, slatted panels, an intricate bonnet crown topped by a shell carving, and a platform footboard grounded by cabriole legs. The indispensable sleigh bed, with graceful posts, framed, canted panels, and a scalloped bottom rail, is both classic and current. The case pieces in Villa Sophia make their own statement with serpentine shaped tops and profiled top drawers above generously proportioned bottom drawers, and base rails with lovely ogee shaping. Custom designed hardware adds a touch of jewelry to drawers.
Three finish options on Villa Sophia allow the collection to assume three distinct personalities: the Dark Roast finish speaks to casual luxury, the Antique Cherry finish speaks reads classic, while the Whole Cream evokes a continental cottage. The result is a casual yet traditional collection with speaks to today, but which will be an heirloom tomorrow.
