The Natalie sofa features a glamorous barrel-back design and offers stain-resistant fabric choices for everyday livable luxury in your home. The collection also introduced updated styles and finishes for console tables. Carson, an elegant addition to entryways which also doubles as a slim desk option, is a true work of art. Another interesting piece is Grafton, with its simplified demilune shape and hand-applied olive ash burl veneers, featuring an exquisite Italian Carrara marble tabletop.
