Fine Furniture Design’s Bogart upholstery to be made in N.C.
HIGH POINT — Fine Furniture Design’s new Humphrey Bogart Collection will feature American-made upholstery that represents a collaboration between Fine Furniture Design and North Carolina upholstery manufacturer Taylor King Furniture.
This ottoman featuring exclusive fabric is part of Fine Furniture Design’s Bogart collection introduction.
Jim Adams, president of FFD, said the company decided to tap Taylor King’s expertise in upholstery.
“We said to them, ‘Here is the direction for the collection and we want you to help us,’” he said. “Then we turned it over to them to see what they would create.”
The result is a collection of 17 frame styles with 24 SKUs including 31 fabrics, eight leathers, five decorative tapes, five decorative fringes, eight decorative cords and 10 decorative nail head trims. Exclusive fabrics from Home Fabrics and Circa 1801 have been developed for the collection, and all upholstery pieces will be shipped from Conover, N.C.
“It’s an eclectic collection, and we are making sure that what is packaged together makes sense and is not too limited,” said Del Starnes, president of Taylor King.
Company officials describe the upholstery line as “punched-up classic,” with the textile palette including edgy interpretations of neutrals. Hues include sable, mist, khaki and domino, an abstract black-and-white fabric that functions as a visual punctuation mark to some of the featured monochromatic solids.
“We wanted to create a product that has the mystique of Bogart, but also works with what people want today,” Starnes said. “With the variety of fabrics, we support both casual and formal interpretations, and we’ll build from here.”
