In The Spotlight Now


It's not often that a furniture collection offers the best of both worlds. Crafted in highly figured Walnut and Sycamore Maple in patterned veneers, the Palisade Collection is just such a collection, appealing to those who embrace modern style yet revere traditional design.

Spotlight On: Palisade Collection

This bedroom, dining room, home office and living room accent furniture collection offers a classic beauty with a contemporary flair.

A delightful study in contrasts, Palisade is sleek, yet warm. It's rooted in traditional design yet has a modern outlook. It's refined, yet has an eclectic edge.

Setting the tone for contrast in the collection is the juxtaposition of light and dark with Palisade's combination of bright Sycamore Maple and deep, dark figured Walnut veneers.

Referring to the cream and walnut pieces, Pat Watson, vice president of merchandising for Hooker Furniture said, "The ability to bring an accent color into the bedroom means an awful lot today, because people want something besides the same old wood tone. These pieces provide not only a different color; even the hardware is unique."

Another highly popular furniture item for bedrooms today is the upholstered bed. Palisade offers not just one upholstered bed option, but two. In addition to the Palisade shelter bed in taupe upholstery, Palisade also offers a shelter bed with carbon-colored upholstery.

"Having a color selection for upholstered beds is also very important, "Watson said, adding "Another appealing feature of these upholstered beds is the diamond tufting and the fact that the fabric on the bed has a loose rather than tight feel, meaning it is more casual and comfortable."

With the unlikely combination of sleekness and warmth, "Palisade comes across as high-style transitional," Watson said. "When you pair sleek transitional with very classic forms and silhouettes, you create a warmth that you feel as much as you see," he said.

The 48-inch round dining table and the 60-inch round dining table in the Palisade Collection contrast dark, delicate ebony stringers with a bright Sycamore Maple finish to create a quilted starburst effect. The brilliant finish and pattern intrigue the eye and beckon the hand.

Adding to the eclectic nature of Palisade are two accent pieces with an Asian vibe that contrast a walnut finish and a creamy parchment finish on a faux shagreen material, the two-drawer nightstand and the twelve-drawer chest. The two-drawer nightstand has a fresh Zen feel, and adds a pop of color and contrast. The hardware on the two-tone nightstand and accent chest is highly detailed, featuring a brushed bronze knob with a square backplate.
