ANNIE SELKE HOME LAUNCHES NEW FURNITURE AND FABRICS

by Marisa Marcantonio


Annie Selke is in perpetual motion, coming up with new creative ideas all the time. She constantly adds comfortable and livable patterns to her Dash and Albert Rug Company and creates bold and beautiful designs for Pine Cone Hill, her bedding line.
This past October brought a major launch, as Vanguard introduced Annie Selke Home. Pretty, gilded finishes and sinewy lines make this eighty- piece collection of upholstery and case goods great for city and country living. In addition, a vast new line of bold fabrics and trims are available at Calico Corners. They provide whimsy, color and country-inspired pattern that have become her trademarks. Annie finds inspiration in her Berkshire Hills, Massachusetts setting, always staying true to her guiding principles of ease and total comfort in interiors.

Soft gilded finishes provide the perfect touch to the tapered leg on the demi lune table and swag back Ava chair.

I am sure The Ohara chair will be an editor fave. I adore it. The bead detail and curve of the leg provide a nice perch by a fireplace and it would also be well served in a bedroom. The ebony frame is a nice contrast for the upholstery. Choose something zingy to upholster it in.

Need storage? Not anymore. The Everly China Cabinet has concealed cabinet space at the bottom for storing stuff that is less pretty. The cut corner inlay and circle detail in the glass makes this Charles Rennie Mackintosh meets Regency. Note the finish--washed oak light wood is slightly cerused so it can go casual and also work well with dressier pieces.

Look at the base if this table--love it! So French 20's, it can work as a side table or a place to have dinner for two.

The Oh So Bookcase is great for a small apartment. For a big space, line them up side by side. It would look good and is easier than built-ins.

The Hayworth Carved Chair with it's gilded knot legs and rope detailing looks like it came out of a Rose Cummings interior. Love the old world glamour.

Perfect for a small seating arrangement in the living room or in a hall, the Button Back Settee has a nice high back and clean tapered leg.

A Victorian-inspired apron gives the Bamboo Ottoman a worldly feel. The exotic ikat upholstery adds to it's allure.
