Precedent launches largest introduction in a decade
Organic shapes, natural fibers and warmer tones are hallmarks of High Point Market introductions from furniture maker Precedent, which is unveiling its largest array of new products in a decade during the show Oct. 22-26.
The company will debut 34 new pieces, including seating, upholstered beds, dining options and a dozen new upholstered items in its Lemieux et Cie collection — all shown in its newly renovated showroom on the third floor of 315 Fred Alexander Place.
“Our newest collection, in every way, has been inspired by nature. We have seen a major shift in trend towards more organic shapes, warmer tones, more textured textiles and natural/untreated fibers. These trends drive our design direction while always keeping our principal focus on comfort,” said Tom Zaliagiris, vice president of sales and marketing.
The vision for the new line comes from the colors and textures of things seen in the environment, the company says.
“Spaces have become defined by the layering of texture, and natural fibers are being utilized in textiles, creating a haven in the home,” said Zaliagiris.
The Lemieux et Cie collection by Christiane Lemieux features a variety of materials and finishes, from travertine to plaster and burl and oak finishes. Included in the collection of 19 new case goods is an update to the successful Pernelle chair collection with a new stool and counter stool, new dresser and credenza designs with signature textural carved fronts. The new Lemieux et Cie upholstery includes three sofas, four accent chairs, upholstered dining chairs and an upholstered ottoman with oak base.
Precedent, part of the Hickory, North Carolina-based Sherrill Furniture group, says the new products will be available at LemieuxetCie.com and furniture wholesalers starting in January and February.
