Mix and Meld
The September edition of Architectural Digest is about to break! In addition to terrific stories and ideas from our friends at the magazine, you’ll want to check out the Drexel Heritage ad on page 44. Here’s a sneak peak for our readers. The storyline? Getting a look that’s your own is all about mixing and melding – the Drexel Heritage way.
Denise Alala, our resident creative visionary, explained the idea behind the “melding approach.” With so many great items to choose from, plus more than 40 custom wood and paint finishes, and 1,500-plus custom fabric, leather and trim options, she couldn’t help but ask, “Why merely match when you can meld?”
Our behind-the-scenes shot shows Denise at work, mixing and melding unique pieces from Drexel’s new Dalliance collection along with very earthy (yet sophisticated) pieces from At Home in Wine Country, also a brand new collection. Denise specified a bold fabric for two of our custom upholstered chairs and added several contrasting throw pillows to complete the look. You can actually see some of the design process revealed in the magazine ad, as we’ve recreated an idea board that shows how the process unfolds, piece by piece, detail by detail.
The result? A beautiful landscape of self-expression.
