April 2012, Highpoint Market

From the red brick gallery spaces of Market Square, the Century Furniture showroom presented beautiful furniture crafted from the Rochdale Spears factory.

Both the Monarch and Archive Home lines were well received. A bleached oak finish replaced dark brown on 18th Century European designs. Distressed paint and intricate carving added interest to new interpretations of classic pieces.

A campaign desk and interconnecting chair wrapped in vellum stole the show for Archive Home.

New to the catagories this market are beds, shown here is a shagreen trimmed and linen upholstered bed.
