Style Inspiration Intrigue is defined by its
sophisticated transformation of traditional design elements into a soft
transitional collection, highlighted by bronzed metal, textured linen, supple
leather and sleek stone. Sweeping shapes, dramatic veneers, exquisite details
like maple inlay and hand-applied nail head trim, and a signature marquise
(pointed oval) shaped motif communicate fresh attitude and create an up-to-the
minute appeal. Crisp, uncluttered lines combine with traditional touches to
reveal a look with order, function and versatility for today.

and richly grained grey elm veneers, artistically placed in sunburst and "V"
matched patterns. The tops of cases and dining tables are bordered by a softly
contrasting maple stringer inlay. The warm "Cola" finish
showcases the rich grain character of the elm veneer.
