Nathan Anthony Expands Embrace Seating Collection for October High Point Market

International furniture brand Nathan Anthony will feature its Embrace upholstered seating collection for the first time in the company’s permanent showroom in InterHall, space IH-602, during Fall High Point Market, October 13 - 21.

After a virtual debut of the Embrace sofa this spring, the item’s instant popularity prompted the expansion this season of correlating seating styles, including a 75-inch wide loveseat and two generously sized chairs - a chair-and-a-half called Cuddle, and a swivel style. 

Embrace is a present-day homage to the Ours Polaire sofa by influential mid-century furniture designer Jean Royère. The French sofa name translates to “polar bear” which, along with the original’s sheepskin cover, made for an apt description. 

Each of the contemporary designs by Nathan Anthony feature a tight, sculpted back and sweeping arms that envelope the plump curves of its seat. The frames, crafted from sustainably harvested kiln-dried alderwood and Pirelli webbing, appear to float on a one-inch recessed plinth.

Nathan Anthony lead designer Tina Nicole was inspired by the collection’s curves to additionally create Sweetheart, an equally voluptuous, heart-shaped ottoman for pairing with the seating items.

For the benchmade upholstery specialist, all items in the collection are fully customizable.

Drawing from the time of quarantine and a rise in wellness and self-care pursuits, Nathan Anthony prepared another chair introduction for the October Market. Developed with the Sukhasana yoga pose in mind, the Omm chair’s low and wide seat is ideal for cross-legged sitting to promote relaxation and reduce stress.
