SAY HELLO TO UPDATED MID-CENTURY AND RUSTIC MODERN
Introducing ED Ellen DeGeneres crafted by Thomasville, exclusive to Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses and the Rhode Island Design Center in Rhode Island.
Ellen DeGeneres’ passion for design led her to launch a brand new furniture collection with a personal connection and signature elements. Inspiration comes from pieces in her home and from her desire to create beautiful, affordable home furnishings that evoke an ideal retreat with relaxed sophistication. Natural and rustic elements commingle with simple, mid-century form. A touch of whimsy sprinkled throughout reflects Ellen’s personality and love for collecting.
This whole-home collection encompasses two styles that touch on Mid-Century and Rustic Modern design, both relaxed and comfortable with a combination of materials and earthy colors, plus stunning finishes and fabrics.
The relaxed Mid-Century line features a blend of Danish and Italian inspired designs. Core materials are walnut veneers in a warm, dry finish, hand skived to add a distressed look, and brass hardware. Cane, bronzed glass and rich leathers are featured as secondary materials.
The Rustic Modern theme is inspired by Ellen’s love of Scandinavian rustic antiques. It features knotty white oak in a soft farmhouse finish with antiqued hardware and stone and metal accents. The collection is enhanced by several items featuring live edge details, pierced tribal-inspired carvings plus fumed maple and dark oak veneers. Fuming is a wood finishing process that darkens wood and brings out the grain pattern.
The Rustic Modern upholstery has deep, inviting profiles, relaxed skirted designs, and modern chesterfield designs. Accent seating combines materials such as cane and wood with design elements like saddlebag arms.
Both collections have an exclusive seat construction that exemplifies a new level of comfort with high resiliency foam crowned by a luxurious blend of feather/ down/Trillium©, an advanced material providing loft and resiliency. ED’s fresh look, built with Thomasville’s hallmark quality and attention to detail, blends the best of both to deliver an exciting new collection.
The Mid-Century upholstery features sofas ranging from curvaceous, flowing forms to angular, tufted, tight seat designs. Accent chairs with hand-shaped walnut-finished frames round out this collection.
