Nathan Anthony Adds Accent Tables, Rugs to Product Offerings
Bench-made upholstery resource Nathan Anthony is expanding its product offerings with new collections of accent tables and rugs that will debut at the fall High Point Market in the company’s InterHall showroom, IHFC IH-505.
Developed to complement its award-winning contemporary seating designs, the addition of tables and rugs are a first step in the brand’s lifestyle-focused expansion.
The Tetra and Torino table systems - a total of 10 SKUs - are designed to promote flexible surface arrangements in rooms. Several cocktail-height tables may overlap for a stacking tiered effect, or used independently, they coordinate with a correlating side table.
Architecturally inspired, each thin, round tube or rectangular steel frame supports a proportionally slim wood top.
“Our goal is to create functional, well-designed accent pieces that accentuate the beauty of our upholstery,” said Tina Nicole, Nathan Anthony’s co-owner and lead designer. “The new tables feature light, airy shapes to enhance the silhouettes of our seating groups. They allow you to see the distinctive legs and bases of chairs and sofas, showcasing the stitching treatments and other intricate details we are known for.”
Tetra is a sleek, modern collection featuring four table heights. Its delicate, round-tube steel frame has a powder-coated, oil-rubbed Bronze or Flat Black finish, along with a thin wood top of maple or walnut, stained in a Walnut Haze finish.
Nathan Anthony’s Torino table system takes inspiration from Fiat’s legendary Lingotto factory in Turin, Italy. Completed in 1923, Fiat’s five-level factory featured a unique spiral assembly line that moved up through the building story by story until it reached a rooftop race track, where each car was tested upon completion. The factory closed in 1982 but the building continues to be a popular destination, housing a shopping center, theater, convention center and upscale motel.
Featuring slim, race track-shaped surfaces of maple or walnut, the Torino collection consists of six tables of varying heights and sizes. Each table is built as an oval, steel tube frame, with legs placed at angles around the race curve top, for extra visual interest. The frame sports a powder-coated Flat Black finish or oil-rubbed Bronze tone. One model sports a C-shape cut-out for easy nesting.
The table systems are produced in Nathan Anthony’s Vernon, Calif., plant, said Khai Mai, CEO. “The steel frames are sourced from a local vendor in Los Angeles and all of the other work is done in-house by our team of skilled craftsmen.”
Along with two new table collections, Nathan Anthony is unveiling its first-ever rug line with 3 SKUs.
Sourced from a leading producer in Australia, the Roxx collection features three sizes of area rugs made of close-cropped wool shag or Longwood sheepskin, with a lush, 2- to 2.5-inch pile. For the initial introduction, three on-trend colorways are available — Mid-grey (the Buda model, an 8’ x 6’ size), Pearl (the Prague model, a 6’10” x 4’ size) and Storm (the Bruge model, a 5’ x 4’ model).
“The Roxx collection is floor décor made up of organic shapes, luxurious textures and differing sizes that can work in unison or stand beautifully alone,” said Nicole. “They add a pleasing, playful tranquility to any room, whether it’s one rug used in front of a sofa, two rugs under side tables or all three placed together in the front."
