Smooth Fusion October 2018 – High Point, NC – Bespoke furniture manufacturer Jonathan Charles showcases their love of brass and marble in their latest collection. Dubbed “Fusion,” the collection of tables, cabinets, and etageres mixes white calacatta marble, ebonised oak, and brass in a contemporary and chinoiserie manner. Inspired by the work of collaborative-design duo Philip & Kelvin Laverne who are best known for melding ancient Egyptian and chinoiserie motifs, the antique etched brass on select pieces is the star of the collection, which is created through acid etching and patination. Each piece, handmade by artisans, bears the signature of Jonathan Charles’ craftsmanship: meticulous attention to detail, resplendent carved motifs, and brilliant finishes.
