Enjoy this article from the Wall Street Journal that includes Celerie’s tips on how to spruce up your powder room. Celerie Kemble is working on a fabulous collection of furniture with Henredon that will be unveiled at the High Point Market in Spring 2013.
Henredon concluded the High
Point Market on a high note, reporting a brisk turnout in showroom attendance
and enthusiasm for new introductions.
The Montaigne collection took center stage with a mid-century French
inspired look. The light, open-pore cerused finish relaxes the designs’
geometric lines and gives the pieces a cutting-edge sophistication.
The Acquisitions Euro introduction takes its style cue from a broad
range of European traditional forms. Designs are updated with fresh finishes,
American knotty walnut veneers, and other interesting veneer species.
A contemporary spirit informs
the new Acquisitions Contemporary selections.
Some designs exhibit Asian influences; others an organic spirit. The overall
feeling is both elegantly relaxed and luxuriously chic.
The latest Henredon
upholstery designs reflect streamlined silhouettes with simpler lines and
Henredon and Maitland-Smith will debut new collections designed by noted
interior designer and author Celerie Kemble in April 2013 at High Point Market.

Dan Bradley, President of both Henredon and
Maitland-Smith, is excited about these new licensed programs, stating, “Both
brands will benefit from our association with Celerie. She shares our goal to produce the most
beautiful high-end furniture and decorative accessories in the industry. She has a keen eye for detail and a
passion for creating unique, fresh designs, and we are thrilled to be
associated with her.”
Kemble is finalizing the designs for the new
collections with Todd Sessa, Vice President of Merchandising and Design for
both Henredon and Maitland-Smith, to ensure that all products work together to
create an environment true to the Celerie Kemble vision. Sessa is “confident the results of our
collaboration with Celerie will appeal to interior designers, retailers and
consumers alike because each design stands alone, yet the mix is very well
merchandised and works together as a cohesive whole.”
As an interior designer, Kemble endeavors “to fuse
the elegance of subtle luxury with comfort, current fashion, and an
understanding of what will be enduring design. Because much of what I do is custom, site-specific and
bespoke, it has long been my dream to bring these imaginative designs and
intriguing objects to a wider audience.”
For Kemble, one way to achieve this goal is through
these licensed programs. She deems
it “a privilege to team with Henredon and Maitland-Smith and to work with some
of the most capable craftspeople in the furniture manufacturing industry. Both Henredon and Maitland-Smith have
production capabilities that are as vast as the spectrum of my design vision,
and we share respect for the nuances that make furniture beautiful and
lasting. I am ecstatic about the
team we have formed, and the process has been delightful and inspiring.”
Celerie Kemble is a principal of Kemble Interiors,
based in Palm Beach, Florida, and New York City. Kemble’s design work has been
widely published in the US and internationally. Her latest book, “BLACK and WHITE (and a bit in between)” is
published by Clarkson Potter.

Light and airy neutrals enhance a room’s style and sophisticated. From beiges to grays, when using these colors with a variety of textures you can create a timeless space. The use of neutrals allows the natural beauty of a space to shine through. Incorporating different shades of neutrals will add depth and contrast to your space. Additionally, the use of different shapes, surfaces and patterns makes it visually interesting. We also love to throw in a small pop of color from time to time.
