Universal Introduces Second Wave of Modern Collection

Universal Furniture has announced the second wave to its Modern Collection. The 40-plus SKUs added to the collection present new shapes, unique bed designs and the introduction of woven materials.

While the additions were designed to be daring, the construction and materials focus on livable, usable furnishings that are comfortable enough for everyday use.

"Retailers and designers have really embraced the line over the last two years” said Jeff Scheffer, CEO. “So, this fall is a natural expansion on an aesthetic that’s done really well for us and our customers.”

Two new finishes join the collection this fall. Onyx and Sand, a dark brown and tan respectively, are both heavily wire-brushed oak veneers. The finishes were developed and refined using complex layering techniques, and variations of color and sheen to achieve a dry, casual optic, while the wood is abraded by hand to achieve an aged look.

Introductions include:

  • Sliding cocktail table: Three tiers – one wood, one marble, one metal - are stacked perpendicular and each tier slides back and forth to reveal the level underneath. 
  • Mirror: Rectangular in shape with either an antique brass or brushed bronze finish, this mirror has an abstract style with a grid of varying sized, geometric blocks.
  • Circular console: This 80-inch-long console features metal circles of varying sizes that appear sandwiched between the console top and base. At only 16 inches deep, its designed to fit the narrowest of hallways or foyers.
  • Display cabinet: A design that can function as display cabinet or bookcase, this vertically oriented, 88-inch-high, eight-door cabinet features wood-trimmed cabinet doors with glass inserts all set on a metal base.
  • Sideboard: Faced with horizontal slat trim the sideboard appears as if it was a board-and-batten design in the sand finish. Push-to-open concealed hardware, two tray drawers, felt-lined silverware tray insert and vertical platter storage.
