Verellen Oscar Chair

This Oscar chair by Verellen is the ultimate comfy chair with detailed sophistication. What makes this chair is the fabric choice. With 2 different colors of the same linen, this chair offers a consistent yet dimensional look; the body is in a peppercorn linen and the back pillow and seat cushion are in an espresso linen.

$2344 Circa price  (retail $3125)

Circa Client in Charlotte Living Magazine


"Style and Relationships Equal Success: Interior Design by Circa of Charlotte"
As featured in Charlotte Living Magazine May/ June 2010 issue
We are so excited about the beautiful spread in the new Charlotte Living of David & Natalie Homesley's house designed by Heather Smith. This is such a fun, relaxing home with a lot of charm in Eastover. Filled with Verellen & Lee's natural uphosltery fabrics (often time slipcovered), this house is ideal for a family with children without losing style. Be sure to take note of the awesome upholstered headboard and the upholstered screen behind it that wraps around the wall. I love this! Heather incorporated wall mounted lights and a picture light into the screen for reading. So sleek! By the way, this house is on the market so if you love it, it could be yours!

Thomas O'Brien

It seems that Thomas O'Brien is EVERYWHERE these days. In addition to designing lines for Hickory Chair, Visual Comfort, Reed and Barton, Safavieh rugs, and Target, he somehow found the time to publish his new book American Modern. This great-looking coffee table book offers a deeper look into O'Brien's style, generally including cleaner lines and simple color palettes. The book takes a look at seven of his famous projects each with their own twist to his "American Modern" style ranging from traditional to modern. 
Isn't he cute!? I love his glasses!
These are a few of our favorite pieces for Hickory Chair:

Madison Tufted Side Chair (34"h x 25.5"w x 24.25"d)
Gallery Trestle Dining Table (29.25"h x 85"w x 42"d)
Studio Accessory Table (19.25"h x 14.25"w x 14.25"d)

Farra Cocktail Ottoman (16.25"h x 48"w x 32")
Tilden Chair (39"h x 25.5"w x 31"d)
Soho Upholstered Bed (available in king & queen size)
Colin Side Table (26.25"h x 31"w x 19"d)
