Furniture brand travels the globe for latest collection inspiration

Lexington Home’s Zanzibar collection goes for natural beauty with a touch of the exotic.

HIGH POINT – Lexington Home Brands, a global manufacturer and marketer of residential and contract furnishings, is inspired by the island of Zanzibar for the latest addition to its Lexington brand portfolio, debuting at this month’s High Point Market.

“The island of Zanzibar, which is one of the Spice Islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, evokes a sense of the exotic,” said Phil Haney, president and CEO of Lexington Home Brands. “In developing the personality of this collection, we wanted to infuse the allure of travel and discovery.”

With the Zanzibar collection, the company is focusing on a casual contemporary style with natural finish tones, organic design elements and an emphasis on comfort and less formal finishes. Lexington Home says the collection lends itself to the use of dramatic pieces that define a room, from accent items to original art or sculpture.

“Today’s new aesthetic is a curated blending of elements, punctuated by key signature pieces that make the room feel like an escape. As the name implies, Zanzibar was designed to offer a fresh and unexpected view of relaxed contemporary living.”

Upholstered pieces feature transitional and contemporary designs with gentle curves and exceptional tailoring that complement the architectural lines of the collection. Pieces are covered in plush textiles, including boucles, chenilles, velvets, leathers, shearling fur and a variety of faux furs. Patterned fabrics include bold geometrics, animal skins, contemporary checks, textural plain and abstract bohemian designs. Colors in keeping with nature focus on earthy tones like camel, cream, taupe, russet and dark mocha.

Zanzibar case goods are crafted from quartered white oak in a warm taupe finish with bases in a deep espresso color. Surfaces are gently wirebrushed to enhance the wood’s natural grain, while sleek custom hardware, finished in dark umber, offers a striking complement. Select occasional tables feature antiqued dark emperador marble tops. Overall designs have clean architectural lines that speak to a casual lifestyle.

The Lexington Home Brands showroom is located at 1300 National Highway, open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the High Point Market. Complimentary parking is available at the showroom campus, and lunch is served daily. Private transportation departs every 10 minutes from the Lexington Design Studio in downtown High Point to the main showroom and back, operating daily. The Design Studio is located at the corner of Commerce Street and Wrenn, directly across from the International Home Furnishings Center and Transportation Terminal.
