The traditional line takes their cue from 17th and 19th century furnishings and incorporates deeply coloured wood. Styles range from sleigh beds to European style grandeur featuring ornate carvings.
The contemporary line incorporates Asian and urban styles with wood and metal in a range of tones and stains.
The transitional line incorporates furniture that is a mix of traditional and contemporary with fewer ornate features, clean lines, and contrasting elements.
