Martha Stewart Fine Furniture: Some Highlights

It has been over a year since Martha Stewart Living introduced its Martha Stewart Fine Furniture collection at High Point Market in North Carolina. The line was supposed to debut in stores last fall but it has been put on hold temporarily. I'm extremely anxious to see the full line, which was created by Martha Stewart Living, Miles Talbott Furniture and Lefa, Inc. With 25 upholstery, and 55 bedroom, dining room and occasional pieces, it is one of the most extensive furniture lines MSL has ever developed. It is certainly the largest since the Martha Stewart Signature furniture collections were created with Bernhardt. Another feature of the Fine Furniture collection is a custom (made to measure) upholstery offering that will enable consumers to create upholstered furniture pieces, including sofas, sectionals, chairs, and ottomans that meet their individual scale and style preferences. The custom category includes custom beds with headboard options and bed frame features. Case pieces will be crafted using select hardwoods and veneers including ribbon stripe mahogany, cherry, flat-cut walnut and quarter sawn oak; each finished in distinct, penetrating wood tones. Brass, nickel, marble and parchment accents will also be featured. Select items finished in soft, tone-on-tone, paint colors will create an aesthetic balance. It sounds like a very exciting collection and I'm so anxious for it to be made available! Another blog has reported that the line has been cancelled by Miles Talbott but until MSLO confirms this, I'm hopeful we'll see at least some of the pieces in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, watch this space for any updates. I've highlighted a few of the pieces from the collection. They all look beautiful!

I saw on another Martha related blog that according to a rep from Talbott, the line has been cancelled. I have no clue if the report is accurate. I hope not!

I saw that too, Kenn, on the "Friends of Martha" blog. They said it was on "on hold." The Case of the Disappearing Furniture Line! Get Nancy Drew!

I was privileged enough to be at the debut of the fine furniture line in High Point NC last year and meet Martha. I really hope this line is not discontinued, I was really impressed by what I saw.

Sunny, I'm hopeful we'll see at least some of it at some point in the future. Apparently the upholstery line was discontinued.

I just noticed all the new Martha Lighting at JCP is on clearance already ... I recently bought 2 of the black buffet lamps on sale .. but now they are $58 ..

You should ask for a price adjustment. Some stores have a two-week price-adjustment policy if something goes on sale within two weeks of your original purchase.
