Hooker Furniture – A Rhapsody At The Spring Market

Posted on | April 27, 2012 | 2 Comments

If you’re an interior designer or home goods manufacturer, the Spring High Point Market is one of the most exciting times of the year. I was indeed fortunate to catch up with Kim Shaver, Vice President of Marketing Communications at Hooker Furniture, yesterday while the Market was still in full swing. I asked Kim if there were any exciting introductions this market from Hooker. I received a resounding Yes!

According to Kim, Rhapsody is a compelling new furniture collection that Hooker introduced at the Market this past week. Casually opulent and grand in scale, the collection displays classic style with a rustic walnut finish. “Rhapsody reveals its Greco-Roman influence through timeless motifs like scrolls, rope twist molding, the acanthus leaf and flor de lis,” Kim explained. “The rustic finish is sophisticated, having a reclaimed look about it.”

From the dining room to the office, the Rhapsody Collection is definitely multi faceted. “This is a real Renaissance in the approach to wood finishes − not just light brown or dark brown or the occasional brown or black painted finishes here or there,” Kim noted. “The rustic walnut finish defines the collection, with a mixture of five veneers over solid poplar.” Hickory, walnut and ash, and the use of imperfect pecky pecan create wonderful color tones. I for one am personally sold!

I asked Kim if comfort was a key element with this collection. “Absolutely. Comfort is important from a physical and psychological perspective. The classic design elements of this collection make this easy to live with.”

I am glad I was able to catch up with Kim. Hooker Furniture is a personal favorite of mine when it comes to High Point furniture. I once had an entire room designed around one of their armoires. Thanks Kim!

    It’s always a fun conversation when you are on the other end!! Hope you had a great weekend. I coached soccer…got “killed” in the Saturday game and the boys came from behind and won in the last minute in the Sunday game. That ended the weekend on a high note, for sure. I will be in touch early this week.

    Liz
