Luxury lighting and home decor brand Regina Andrew Detroit has expanded more deeply into upholstery, adding a large line of seating.
The 30-plus piece collection, with many pieces made in the United States, includes sofas and chairs, all designed, the company says, with luxurious comfort in mind, from the forms to the fabrics.
“Our upholstery pieces have the design aesthetic that is essential to our brand, but more importantly, they have a cushy, sink-in feeling that effects contentment,” said Carla Regina, co-founder and chief creative officer of the Detroit-based company. “We focused on making each element of the designs desirable and comfortable but without extraneous decorative details that get in the way of true relaxation.”
The line contains references to classic shapes — tuxedo sofa styling, Charles of London arms — but with contemporary updates and clean lines. Covers, nearly all with performance features, include linens, boucles and even hide. Hues are neutral, with many pieces in shades of off-white.
The upholstery collection debuted during the Fall High Point Market, where the company also introduced new lighting, accessories and accent furniture, with many of those pieces inspired by “the earth’s resources” and using materials like natural alabaster and concrete, as well as leather and wood.
Here’s a look at few key pieces in the new upholstery line:
The tuxedo-style Ashton sofa features tufting on the back and inside arms and an overstuffed bench seat, all dressed in a lush deep olive velvet fabric. Brass nail heads trim the seat and arms for added elegance. The frame is set on turned, natural oak legs with a more unusual feature: casters.
The Luca sofa has a more casual but still sophisticated vibe. Inspired by contemporary European design, the overstuffed single-cushion back pillow and bench cushion invite lounging. Rounded track arms and cylindrical natural oak legs keep the lines of the sofa simple and clean. Covered in a bone white performance fabric, it is suitable for frequent use — and with “a perfectly upholstered back,” the company says it’s ideal for floating in a room.
Comfortable and versatile, sectionals remain popular. A Regina Andrew Detroit version is the Oslo, a modern modular design with a laid-back California contemporary look. The thick, chunky and comfortably firm seat cushions have jumbo self-welting. The Oslo is covered in a practical nubby bone white performance fabric making it good for use in a variety of rooms, from living room or den to media room or office.
The handsome Alfie chair has a sophisticated, clubby feel and a swivel mechanism for ultimate comfort. The fully upholstered, hair-on-hide fabrics accents a tight seat and back with gently sloping arms.
The Bethany chair has a clean, modern look but is super comfortable with swivel rocker functionality and loose, cloudlike cushions. It has a soft, removable slipcover.
For a more traditional look, the Gwen chair has a classic Charles of London arm and exposed, turned natural oak legs on brass casters. The tight back and loose cushion seat covered in a terra-cotta chenille.
Earlier this year, the company added a vintage section to its website, offering decor and furniture amassed through a lifetime of collecting, staging photos shoots and supervising special projects by company co-founders Carla Regina and James Andrew.
