Tomlinson, Michael Wolk Partner for Furniture Collection

Furniture supplier Tomlinson has partnered with noted designer Michael Wolk to create the Palm Springs collection of upholstery and accent tables.

The 28-piece collection will be introduced at the Spring High Point Market through the company’s Carter division.

Inspired by examples of mid-century modern art, architecture and furniture found in Palm Springs, Calif., Wolk describes the collection as “new-century modern.” Pieces feature exposed wood legs and arms, mid-size conversation seating with swivel bases and accent tables with an ebony finish.

Individual pieces are named after architects, writer and actors who have lived or worked in Palm Springs.

“I wanted to bring the same vitality, exuberance and style to the collection that they brought to Palm Springs,” Wolk said. 

Work has designed and built furniture for John Lennon and Yoko Ono, movie sets such as Batman Returns, and country clubs, restaurants and commercial properties worldwide. His work has been featured in newspapers, magazines and books and he is the author of the book “Designing for the Table.” A graduate of The Pratt Institute, he has won numerous awards for his work. 

“This collection exudes the hip, party vibe of Palm Springs,” said Rod Lambeth, CEO of Tomlinson. “It takes us back to a time when friends gathered for conversation and cocktails. In our tech-heavy society, people today want that type of connection and these pieces encourage conversation.  We are fortunate to have a talent of the caliber of Michael Wolk design the collection for us. His talent is palpable.”

Buyers are invited to meet Wolk during a Market reception Sunday, April 19 from 4-7 p.m. in the Tomlinson showroom located at 525 N. Wrenn Street.
