With clean lines and sleek curves, Ford Huniford's furniture collection, filled with deep upholstery and rich wood case pieces, has urban appeal. Reinventing styles from the past, he has but his own spin on them, giving a modern luxury to each piece. Designers often create collections based on things they have made for clients in the past, or out of a need for things they can't find. Low profile sofas, cerused oak tables, x-bases and subtle detailing complete the collection by the New York-based interior designer. Peruse the entire collection on his website, on Dering Hall or visit the pieces in person at 210 11th Avenue, Suite 601 in NYC.
