Jonathan Charles, the high-end case goods and upholstery manufacturer has planned an early summer launch in US for one of its latest introductions, Toulouse. The 35-piece collection with 20th century European modern design influences also incorporates mixed media element such as duck eggshell and solid brass.
In addition to several pieces of upholstery, the balance of the collection is in bedroom, dining room, occasional and home entertainment furniture. European design collection Toulouse from Jonathan Charles is all set to launch on the company’s website in early July, along with another soon to be revealed collection to launch online in early August — will hit retail sometime in October. Both also will be stocked domestically.
“We are taking a very methodical launch approach,” said Eric Graham, president. “We will be launching these collections independently and spaced out. We are taking the initial risk by bringing these collections into the U.S. warehouse to be in an in-stock position as soon as possible.”
The wood pieces are made with walnut solids and veneers laid up in V-shaped or diamond-shaped patterns on drawer fronts and in book-matched and starburst patterns on table tops and door fronts. A sideboard also features walnut veneers laid up in a parquetry pattern on each of its four doors.
Duck eggshell is another standout design element seen on select pieces including the doors of a console, while solid brass inlays are seen framing the doors of case pieces. Custom hardware is also made with solid brass, as are the bases of various chests and dressers. Metal also is seen on the bases of occasional and accent tables and in inlays that frame an asymmetrical veneer pattern seen on a cocktail table.
There is one signature bed — a panel bed featuring an upholstered headboard that retails at $9,299 — and a leg dining table that retails at $6,399 and at $17,899 for the table with two arm and eight side chairs. A tall dresser and lower profile dresser each retails at $6,399 while a sideboard retails at $7,839. In addition to showcasing the items online, the company’s sales reps will be hitting the road and making appointments to show the lines before the October market.
