More popular than ever, wallcoverings can add personality and pizzazz to an otherwise plain space. Whether you love subtle texture or bold pattern and color, our showrooms have the largest selection of wallcoverings in the area. Pictured left: Internationally acclaimed celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard introduces a collection of wallcoverings inspired by his travels to Turkey, Morocco, and India. Exclusively for Schumacher, Suite 110.
Create a warm, cozy ambiance by trading sheer, summery fabrics for layers of down, velvet, and cashmere. Tactile and inviting, these luxurious materials layer well as bedcovering, throws, and pillows. Don't forget to layer in a new, spicy candle scent for the finishing touch! Pictured right: Aston Court by Henredon sleigh bed crafted of highly figured mahogany lends itself to the layered look, with its classic English styling. Available at Henredon Interior Design Showroom, Suite 122.
We love wood flooring, but for some applications it may not be the most practical choice. Pictured left: The Monte Napoleone Series of exquisite wood-look porcelain tile is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, entryways, and commercial applications. It adds the same warm, classic look as wood, but is extremely durable, versatile, and frost-resistant, and it is impervious to water. Available in both 6" and 8" wide planks that are 48" long so they more closely resemble real hardwood flooring. Find it at Cercan Tile, Suite 94.
The busy holiday entertaining season is here! Choose tables that are as practical as they are pretty. Clean-lined resin tables are nonporous, nonstaining, and they withstand abuse better than glass or wood. No two are exactly alike, and scratches buff right out.
