OCTOBER 2017, HIGH POINT, NC – Exotic Zebrawood veneers combine with dramatic forms and eye-catching materials like Black Galaxy Granite and Crystal Stone Alabaster to create a stunning contemporary statement collection in Equinox by Marge Carson.
Inspired by architectural forms, intriguing patterns come together with an array of materials ranging from light silvery alabaster to antique mirror to stainless steel and satin brass to create a showcase of stand-alone statement pieces. “Equinox is a collection of virtuoso pieces with striking visual interest,” said Jim LaBarge, chief executive officer of Marge Carson. “The unifying theme is the combination of metal and Zebrawood, with intriguing striated and sunburst patterns. The cylinder-like bar hardware is a masterpiece, with dramatic, highly textured and deeply carved detail.”
The sparkling metal accents, combined with the patterned veneers, exude a contemporary elegance in the 21-piece bedroom, dining and living room Equinox Collection. It will be shown in three finishes: the medium brown Contemporary Briar; the dark, rich, deep brown Bombay; and Slate, a more casual gray tone. The option of either brown or gray
Each of the finishes offers a clarity that shows off the dramatic striations and radiating sunburst patterns of the exotic Zebrano, or Zebrawood, in the collection, notes Tom Tilley, director of wood products for Marge Carson. Tilley added that the intriguing designs, eclectic mix of materials and architectural shapes of Equinox offer “the high-end customer the opportunity to make a fashion statement and showcase of style in their homes.”
