Celerie Kemble introduces a collection of casegoods and upholstery with HENREDON FURNITURE inspired by our favorite artisans, decorators, and the designs we dream about. The line is complimented by a collection of accessories with MAITLAND-SMITH. (photo by Don Freeman).
The Celerie Kemble for MAITLAND-SMITH collection incorporates her favorite materials - bamboo shapes, gold leafing, and a lacquered burned sugar leather, which she describes as “the color of crème brulee just before it burns.” Exotic materials are evident such as dyed shells, faux shagreen, acrylic, and brass. She feels these materials convey a sense of what is modern and fresh, yet have roots in tradition.
Besides lighting and accessories, the collection also includes a few case pieces: a leather-inlaid bar, barstool, game tables and small occasional tables. Mirrors and screens round out the assortment, and all are chic, stand-alone pieces.
Celerie’s inspiration for this collection centered on the art of bleeding color seen in ikats, water colors and nature. Her inspiration is carried through each rug design by means of flawless color blending, organic shapes and a sense of structured unpredictability. The elegant textures, crisp colors and bold designs make these rugs an ideal way to add visual interest to a space.

Using a vibrant, unexpected and sophisticated color palette ranging from chic black, gold and ivory to dramatic shades of orange, turquoise and plum, the designs for F. Schumacher embody modern luxury. Patterns include some of Celerie's favorite motifs derived from the decorative arts... Botanical elements and archival textile designs such as a tree of life are reinterpreted in bold new ways through scale, color and graphic rendering on hand printed grasscloths.
