Century Furniture to Debut a new collaboration with Renowned Interior Designer, Charlotte Moss, at High Point Market in October 2018
Hickory, North Carolina (September 2018) – Century Furniture announces that they will debut new product designs by renowned interior designer, Charlotte Moss, at the October High Point International Furniture Market. The collaboration, which will feature a mix of shapes and forms inspired by the seventies will debut in a Charlotte Moss designed space inside of Century’s showroom in 200 Steele.
The new designs include seven upholstery frames and three tables. These pieces include several fully upholstered designs. Speaking to the design influence Moss states, “ I am feeling the vibe of the early ‘70’s… Maybe there is a chord of nostalgia. I remember all the design magazines with bare floors, low tables, natural materials and the legs of sofas and chairs were upholstered, defying a particular style. I like that defiance, it’s very bi-partisan, so I figured we could use some of that.”
“We are excited to work with Charlotte Moss on a new capsule of product,” says Alex Shuford, III, President and CEO of Century Furniture. “Charlotte brings not only her background as an interior designer, but also her extensive knowledge of furniture design and history as a scholar of our industry. She has an immense passion for design and an eye for detail that helps elevate and refine the product.”
