Spring Lifestyle Report

Spring Lifestyle Report

Century Furniture Spring Lifestyle

This spring Century explores the ideas of confidence, continuity, and collected wisdom. From an urban bohemian lifestyle infused with earthy and saturated colors to a story of the modern curated home, the presentations depict less of the “what we put in our homes” and more of the “how we live and put it together.” The rooms feel effortless but are layered with subtle nuance and details and showcase the strength of Century’s finish and fabric offering. Mixing Thomas O’Brien pieces with new Bob Timber-lake pieces and other new items from the Maison ‘47 Collection, Century artfully shows us how to create collected rooms that feel lived in rather than decorated.

Spring Lifestyle Report

A Curated Home 

The Curated Home is all about this concept of home as a gallery, an ever changing space where furniture moves around as needed instead of being set in one place to live in perpetuity. Rooms should evolve as we collect and curate our lives through time. The colors here are inspired by mineral hues. A punch of citrine awakens the grays and spa blues in one room, while in another gallery Rose Quartz acts as the neutral mixing with taupe and beige. #CenturyCurated #Citrine #Rosequartz #Madebyhand

Spring Lifestyle Report

Organic Modern

Organic modern is the juxtaposition of rus-tic more casual settings with modern things. A contemporary sofa against a planked wall. We were inspired by William Wurster, an early American architect, and his work. Ivory, taupes and powdery and slatey blues mix on modern upholstery. #CenturyOrganicModern #artofmixing #rootedinhistory #Madebyhand

Spring Lifestyle Report

Resort

Not meant to conjure a physical place, Century’s Resort Lifestyle is more about a state of mind. Nostalgic prints made youthful and modern with coloration and scale mix with a range of furniture styles showcased in Century’s white lacquer and a new finish, Eden, to create playful rooms. This lifestyle is all about not taking things too seriously, kicking up your feet and living the good life, wher-ever that might be. #CenturyResort #Eden #RobertAllen #MadcapCottage #Madebyhand
