FRAZIER COLLECTION - NEW CLASSICS

M.A. SEMANIER - THE FRAZIER COLLECTION - Finish as shown: Hyedua Brun with Vintage Brass fittingsNew York is home to a countless number of furniture collections.  From major name "brand" showrooms with hundreds of pieces, to one of a kind, hand made items found in intimate work shops, NYC has it all.   Somewhere happily in-between is an exciting new collection from a veteran of the design industry.  The Frazier Collection has a decidedly international feel to the furniture, lighting, and objects that shape this assortment of collectible items.   Richard Frazier, the man behind the name, is one who listens to the world around him, designing pieces that fill more than space.  The tables, chairs, dressers, and lighting all have an organic and natural feel.M.A. CHEST - THE FRAZIER COLLECTION -Finish Shown: Chalk polished lacquer with Polished Brass fittings  At the same time, these items evoke a sense of tradition and nostalgia often associated with European heirlooms from a treasured past.  The collection has a masculinity to it, but without a sense of pretense or overbearing details.  Hardware is substantial and powerful, but not overwhelming.  Walking through the showroom feels a bit like stumbling upon a magical collection that might fill the castle of some sophisticated fairytale. 

Frazier works with some of the biggest names in the world of interior design, shaping rooms that become a home.   Search his website today and start planning your next design project.

GOOD TASTE - TUCKED AWAY IN WARREN 

New York is home to some of the most prestigious interior design showrooms in the industry.   Every year, customers and interior designers flock to NYC to see the latest finds of some of the finest antiques in the world.   Ironically, the most talented Interior Designers often head out of the city for the best pieces, hidden away at dealers that aren't on the map of the masses.  Vol.1 Antiques in Warren, Connecticut is just such a store.   Located in the Warren Hamlet just East of Kent, Vol. 1 has the treasures that keep discriminating New Yorkers coming back again and again. LOUIS XV CHAFFEUSES- VELVET MOHAIR - VOL.1 ANTIQUES Owner Suzanne Cassano has the eye of a collector and the taste level of a curator - her pleasant shop tells the story immediately.   On my most recent visit on a Sunny Saturday afternoon I was stopped in my tracks by these gorgeous French -Louis XV-Chaffeuses  (fireside arm chairs).  The chairs have wood carved frames and the original blue velvet mohair, in excellent condition.  They would be the star of any room in the country or in the city.   Priced at $4,800.00 for  4- they won't last the Winter, so get in touch with Suzanne ASAP.     Just next store to Vol. 1 is Privet House, Suzanne's joint venture with design guru Richard Lamberston.   Privet House is a font of gift and home goods that is the best resource for holiday shopping.   A perfect weekend drive destination anytime of the year -in Winter it sparkles!  With the money you saved shopping outside NYC - why not spend the night?  Just across the street is The Rooster Tail Inn!  A perfect weekend getaway.
