Windsor Smith for Century Furniture at High Point April Market 2017

Design icon, Windsor Smith introduced her new collection at Century Furniture during High Point Market April 2017.
The "Alchemy" Collection by Windsor Smith was well received and celebrated during April High Point MarketHigh Point Market in April!  The collection includes 70 easy-to-mix classics which are versatile enough to use in every room in the home.  The collection includes everything from upholstery, case goods to wall decor.  
The collection was named "Alchemy" - which she defined as "Seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination" 
 Windsor explained her approach as the following in her own words, “My goal is to provide effortless combinations of shapes and materials culled from sources far and wide to forge a new, tightly edited whole. Every detail feels bespoke, precisely chosen for modern living, and engaging over time for generations to come.”
Let's take a look at some of my favorites from the collection:

Point in case.  The lady is a pro.  She pays as much detail to the front of the chair as she does the back of the chair so I'm showing this chic chair from the back. Take note of the "jewelry" for the back of the chair with a nod to the equestrian world.

The "Daybreak sofa" was equally stunning and dramatic at 110" in length.
The perfect sofa to add drama and great seating to your room.  It reminded me
of something you would see in an old Hollywood movie.  

Again, details are part of what sets Windsor's design sensibilities apart from the part.  Notice the cuff detail on the leg of this side table.  

 This gorgeous bed was so inviting.  By the time I saw the collection, my initial response was to climb in bed and pull the covers over my head but honestly, the collection was so stunning it captivated my interest and intrigued me to move forward and see what was around the corner.  

Across from the bed was this Hollywood worthy viewing corner complete with the most comfy and plush swivel chairs, bar stools and table for the ultimate media room experience.
My friend, Robert Leleux of Southern Style Now and I enjoyed a break in these comfy chairs and dreamed about having a room like this in our own homes.

Yes, you are seeing correctly!  this is the most stunning mirrored top dining table 
I have ever seen!  The floor is also from a collection Windsor Smith designed featuring weathered wood and various finished woods in a geometric pattern.

 The Meridian settee is a four-sided sofa which answers the designer's question to what to do when you need a pair of sofas in a room but wants something more unique and interesting than just a pair of sofas!  It can be used in a foyer, large dressing room or larger living space.  Modern yet classic in design, this is the perfect neoclassical piece with carved wood and gold left detailing. 

The "Twilight sofa" is another piece with " Old Hollywood" appeal.  It perfectly sums up what I would describe as a "fainting couch".  It's flirty and fun with its curvaceous seat and button back.  Great to use in an angled corner of a bedroom, dressing room or flanking a fireplace to soften the geometry of a square room.  

Bam!  Another winner!  I don't know which I like more, the Shield, framless mirror or the handsome desk.  One is feminine the other is masculine which adds the perfect tension to
a master bedroom in mybook.

A new dining table and chairs were another wonderful part of the collection.  I also loved how Windsor styled the rooms.  The simplicity of the grass in the round trays was the perfect centerpiece for the table.  Proof that sometimes there are things better as centerpieces than flowers.  

Other people have done cloverleaf ottomans but never have I seen them with cute little brass legs and grouped in a pair.  

Doesn't this vignette feel like the set of a great movie?  The oversized shield mirror is the pefect focal point in this room. 

Cool, chic and simple.  Three words to describe the feel of this ever so sophisticated guy's room!  I won't say boy's room because I think my 19 year old would love it as much as anyone.

How chic is this barstool? I'll take a pair and while you are at it please throw in the table for good measure, right?

 The Clara tete a tete from her original collection with Century is a Windsor iconic piece in my book.  It is what I remember loving from one of the foyers that first caught my attention and took me down a rabbit hole admiring Windsor's portfolio years ago.

Windsor's kept to her signature grey color throughout the collection but kept things interesting with textures such as fur and leather. 

I'll admit I had to lie down and experience the chaise which I found to be very comfortable.  When I first saw it, I didn't think that it would be but I was proven wrong.  

What a sexy, strong and artful silhouette this chair adds to a room.  Again, this chair was as comfortable as it was great looking. 

Don't we all want a corner sofa?  Dont' we all want to put Windsor Smith's new collection for Century in our projects?  I know I am dying too!  

"So many pieces, so little time" is the cry from most designers!  Windsor Smith hit a homerun in my opinion with this collection!  I cannot wait to see these pieces in upcoming features in magazines by designers.  Her collection is worthy of the best!
