Explore the Modern Collection by Universal Furniture

The Modern Collection by Universal Furniture is sophisticated, clean, simple, bold and a bit daring. It honors its roots in Modernism but doesn’t replicate mid-century style. The focus is on livability and usability, making it comfortable enough for every day.

While Mid-century Modern evokes a definitive style, Modern by Universal was developed to serve as a flexible furnishing base with room for interpretation by retailer, designer and consumer. The collection represents a wide range of aesthetics and depending on merchandising options, it can be conservative or glamorous, relaxing or invigorating, neutral or colorful.

The collection offers bedroom, dining and living rooms category. Styles include sled-base dining chairs, track arm sofas, a sinuous chaise and several leather-accented chairs.

modern-mahogany-dining-universal-furnitureFinishes:
Modern by Universal is primarily a finish and hardware story. Textural sandblasted and wire-brushed finishes were developed and refined using complex layering techniques, and variations of color and sheen to achieve a dry, casual optic. There are several distinct colors in the finishes, though all are neutrals, which work together naturally, even within the same room. Each one is rich in character and texture, letting the material speak for itself.
Wood finishes are complemented by metal and leather accent finishes.
Sandblasted – Sandblasted finishes expose the open grain of the wood, more so than the wire brushed finishes in the collection.

Wire brushed – In an effect similar to sandblasted, but with more subtlety, the wood is abraded by hand to achieve an aged look.

  • Portobello – a rich brown, often paired with shagreen panels and metal trim

Smooth wood:

  • Mahogany – Quartered mahogany with a smooth, polished sheen

Leather:

  • Faux shagreen

Metal:

  • Antiqued bronze
  • Brushed brass

Hardware:
Antiqued bronze drawer pulls, cabinet handles and dining able accents feature ribbed detail are paired with sandblasted and wire-brushed woods. Sleek brushed brash hardware gives a mid-century metropolitan feel to mahogany finished furnishings.

The Elan Collection by Universal Furniture

The unpretentious, yet casually elegant, lime washed homes of the French / Belgian border towns are recalled in Elan Collection by Universal Furniture. A collection of furnishings that captures design elements of two beautiful countries. The simplicity of Belgian interiors and the detail of French designs meet in a look that is simple, seamless and sophisticated.

The palette of cool, contemporary neutral tones is restful and feminine, almost ethereal. Pieces are intentionally antiqued to give depth and texture. And what may edge on rustic to some is actually luxurious restraint.

Elan downplays contrast and extraneous detail in favor of interiors that create a quiet atmosphere full of light, no matter the weather.

Introducing Curated By Universal Furniture

“Fads come and go, but Curated is a collected look that will stand the test of time.”

A Collected Look With An Eclectic Style

You know that friend who has the gorgeous chocolate brown leather jacket? She bought it in Florence 15 years ago, but every time you see it, you think it’s new. With cropped baby blue chinos, a white T-shirt and gladiator sandals, it’s a cooler version of  preppy.  With  an  ankle-grazing  skirt  and  a  hand-embroidered  Moroccan  scarf,  it’s  artsy Bohemian. Her wardrobe isn’t huge, and it certainly wasn’t bought all at once. But it doesn’t look like anyone else’s. It’s Curated.

554250B-554350-curated-whitney-bed-universal-furnitureIn  the  same  way  your  friend’s  leather  jacket  looks different  every  time  she  wears  it, Curated  by  Universal Furniture  is effortlessly  chic.  A  new  approach  to  merchandising,  Curated  helps retailers create an engaging environment that inspires its customers.

“A synergy of smart business with beautiful style, Curated takes the guesswork out of an eclectic presentation with casual and inviting combinations of exclusive introductions and top performers from our existing line,” says Jeff Scheffer, president and CEO of Universal Furniture International, Inc. “Shown separately on the retail floor, Curated offers a fresh alternative to the ubiquitous lifestyle stores, catalogs and online retailers.”

543B280B-sojourn-respite-canopy-bed-universal-furnitureEach year, Curated will introduce an array of new pieces, which will coordinate with current Universal leaders in an ever-changing, organic mix. Settings will include dining room, bedroom, home entertainment, home office, occasional and upholstery.

The enveloping Halston Bed (54″H), upholstered in Belgian linen, has a winged button-tufted headboard with nailhead trim, as well as a button-tufted footboard.
The Roxbury Nightstand (26″W x 17″D x 28″H), in elm veneers with a Graphite finish, has a planked top, single drawer and open storage area. The canted headboard and footboard of the Whitney Bed, in alder with a clear Townhouse finish, create a fresh, contemporary look. The six-drawer Newbury Drawer Dresser has a Mid-Century Modern vibe in Townhouse alder with bar hardware and an inset base with splayed tapered square feet.

552250B-A-552350-velvet-halston-bed-universal-furnitureAmong  our  favorites  this  season  is  the Rutledge Table (84″W  x  40″D  x  30″H), which combines a metal-banded oval plank top in a Greystone finish with an Oiled Bronze metal and Greystone poplar pedestal base. The Pearson Chair (20″W x 26″D x 37″H), with an upholstered seat and back in Velvet has tapered Greystone legs and decorative nail head trim on the base of the seat and the outside back. With a metal base reminiscent of a French Bistro Table, the Bistro Flip Top Table has a rectangular poplar top with an inset metal band; the sides flip down or up for use as a dining table, console or desk. The similarly styled, 32-inch square Table for 2 pairs perfectly with the oiled bronze metal Bistro Chairs (18″W x 22″D x  38″H),  which  have  the  curvy,  airy  silhouette.  The  sleek  oval Brighton Table (86″W x 40″D x 30″H), with a fancy face quartered oak veneer top in a Brownstone finish, has a spare, contemporary chrome-plated base.

572656-572A634-reunion-dining-universal-furnitureThe Mid-Century Modern Delancy Credenza (78″W x 20″D x 36″H), which doubles as a media console, is sleek and linear with three drawers and two doors in quartered oak veneers in a Brownstone finish with long chrome-plated bar hardware.

Legacy Classic Kids Collections by Wendy Bellissimo

“We’ve really worked to make sure every piece across the Wendy Bellissimo furniture offerings has something special.”
Wendy Bellissimo

FurnitureCart introduces special Legacy Classic Kids Collections by Wendy Bellissimo: Inspirations, Big Sur and Harmony. All three collections speak directly to the heart of nursery and youth environments with designs focused on style and comfort. As a natural extension of her ability to connect with families looking to enhance their lifestyle, designer and mother Wendy Bellissimo balances the collection’s focus with pieces that easily accommodate a child’s individuality and a mother’s desire to provide an inspirational environment in which her child can grow.
“The success of last year’s launch of the Inspirations collection I believe strongly supports the idea that families want compelling options when they are decorating their homes. We’ve really worked to make sure every piece across the Wendy Bellissimo furniture offerings has something special that helps them to stand out as an amazing combination of style and value and Big Sur and Harmony each elevate this idea even further.” – said Wendy, family lifestyle designer.
As a mother and a designer, Bellissimo has extensive experience in finding the “perfect fit” for a child’s space. All pieces in the Wendy Bellissimo collections have been sized and scaled to accommodate the dimensions of a typical child or smaller bedroom.
The collections bring the fun and excitement back into shopping for children’s bedroom furniture, providing creative ways to decorate with an eclectic assortment of pieces that can be styled in multiple ways to fit any setting. Each truly live up to Wendy’s mantra of “love the way you live.”

Inspirations by Wendy Bellissimo: Was created with a versatility that allows each girl freedom of distinct personal expression. Classic styling with intricate wood turnings, inspired hardware and beautiful moldings make this collection a standout with over fifty items to choose from. Lovingly developed finishes of Morning Mist Grey and Seashell White provide an air of lived-in sophistication that will transition gracefully for years to come.

Inspirations-Wendy-Bellissimo-1Inspirations Special design elements:

  • Drawers feature positive drawer stops and side mounted, ball bearing extension guides
  • Drawer fronts are constructed with English dovetail joinery
  • Drawer interiors are sanded and stained for a finished drawer interior
  • All beds feature bolt-on rails to ensure secure attachment and to prevent rails from accidentally unhooking
  • Plywood Slat Rolls, included with every bed, create a strong foundation to support mattresses
  • Dressers, Bureaus, Chests, Desks and Nightstands include anti-tip hardware
  • All items use lead-free finishes
  • Most beds offer low and high rail positions to accommodate underbed storage and growing children

Big Sur by Wendy Bellissimo: Not leaving the boys out, Big Sur is a youth group designed to appeal to boys of all ages with a refined, rugged styling and attention to detail that is a signature trait of the Wendy Bellissimo brand, and what has made her a recognized style leader in family lifestyle products. A handsome finish and layers of frames and moldings make this collection a stand out without adding excessive weight and scale. Finessed details such as the “cross framing” motif on the beds and turned feet create a collection that moms appreciate and still appeal to the “men” of the house.

bigsur by wendy bellissimoBig Sur Special design elements:

  • The Saddle Brown finish is a warm cherry colored tone with subtle rub through, burnishing and lightly distressed edges that is truly a child-friendly finish
  • All pieces feature custom designed knobs with faux key-holes in an Oil Rubbed Bronze color for added details creating a more authentic heirloom design
  • A worn bonded leather fabric is used on the Upholstered Platform Bed

Harmony by Wendy Bellissimo:

The perfect balance between European traditional styling with today’s casual lifestyle helps create the comfortable backdrop for this collection.
Curved fronts on all the cases; delicate ogee shaped frames decorate the drawer fronts; soft rounded fluted pilasters; rounded, urn-shaped turned feet blend together to create a traditional silhouette, then mixed with a very casual Antique Linen white-painted finish, custom designed ring pulls in a matching Antique Linen tone and topped off with a touch of sophisticated glam with glass knobs, Harmony is the perfect interpretation of classic styling updated with today’s livable lifestyle.

Harmony-Wendy-BellissimoHarmony Special design elements:

  • Antique Linen White – a painted “gesso” style finishing process featuring a subtle texture that creates an authentic hand-painted design adding to the heirloom appearance
  • Fluted glass knobs and custom designed ring pulls accented in a lightly distressed white paint give a sophisticated tone on tone look to cases
  • A light natural “Tea Stain” woven fabric used as on the Upholstered Panel Bed (headboard/footboard) and also as a French Memo board used in the Desk Hutch

All three Wendy Bellissimo collections, Inspirations, Big Sur, and Harmony exemplifies Legacy Classic Kids’ longstanding commitment to producing safe and durable furniture in styles that grow well with your children and home. The combination of Wendy’s experiences as a mom and expertise in design and decor has been irreplaceable in helping Legacy Classic Kids create collections that speaks to the distinctive needs and desires of the baby and youth markets.
