Ligna Brings An Exotic Flavor To Its Contemporary Mix
Ligna combines natural materials with contemporary styling for a look of exotic modernity in its introductions debuting at the fall International Home Furnishings Market. Teak, wicker, and latticework add unexpected texture and a breezy island flavor to several of the new collections.
In keeping with the company’s established style direction, the latest designs have a clean, contemporary air that’s also warm and welcoming. “It’s a style that appeals to younger, hipper consumers with more urban tastes,” says Hal McAdams, president.
The first of four new Ligna introductions is Antiqua Wicker, a bedroom collection built on the success of the company’s Antiqua collection. In Antiqua Wicker, the reed detailing of the in-line Antiqua designs is replaced by natural wicker. “By adding wicker and giving the pieces a lighter mahogany finish, we’ve created a more casual, tropical look,” says McAdams. A handsome wicker platform bed complements the case pieces.
Secondly, Ligna broadens its current Antiqua bedroom assortment with the addition of five occasional items and a grand, statement mirror (54”x78”) that can be hung upright or leaned against a wall for maximum dramatic impact. One of the new cocktail tables has two convenient drawers; the other, a shelf for storage or display. Coordinating end table, console, and open bookcase lend depth to this mahogany collection, which features reed and heavy post detailing and a rich Espresso finish.
Ligna’s third new collection, Spectrum, uses latticework accents and mitered joinery to soften the straight geometry of the silhouettes. The bedroom selections are available in two woods: exotic teak with an oil finish and maple in a clear natural finish. Square shaped hardware adds a note of sophistication to the warm, breezy designs. The jewelry-like pulls are finished in burnished bronze on the teak pieces and pewter on the maple cases. For even more flexibility, the latticework bed can be ordered in either a sleigh or platform version.
Sundance, a soft contemporary bedroom with country roots, rounds out the Ligna offerings. Restrained moldings and planked detailing accent case doors and bed. Contributing to the group’s “down-home” personality are mahogany woods finished in a tobacco brown and accented with burnished pewter hardware.
