I love to discover new, quality products made by good people. It is in that spirit that I introduce The New Traditionalists, an east coast furniture company I met in New York during BlogTour NYC. After visiting their perfect SoHo showroom over mimosas and breakfast treats, I’ve been singing their praises ever since. Their meticulous pieces are constructed in New England and can be customized for each and every client.
What really stuck me was the team’s ability to design furniture that blends a bit of a modern edge with sentiments of tradition and classic timeless style.
The New Traditionalist’s founding partners also operate ducduc, a collection of flawlessly chic furniture for little ones. I could not stop taking photos during my visit.
The New Traditionalists team was kind enough to answer some question about what makes the company tick. I hope you enjoy.
The New Traditionalists are…Obsessed with: Details! From the way we dress to the way we design furniture. We get a lot of inspiration from clothing. Working buttonholes on suits, a contrast stitch, shoes that you re-sole and get better with age. It’s all in the details. Inspired by: Steve McQueen, Classic Films from the 50s and 60s…especially black and white ones, a drink at the end of a long day, and our parents. Designing right now: Some amazing new upholstery pieces and casegoods for fall, and accessories. Traveling to: hopefully a beach somewhere this summer where we can tune out with family and friends. Summer memories are the best! Partying to the tunes of: our CEO Philip’s playlists. They are all over the place, from Ella Fiztgerald to the Roots to some country music we are too embarrassed to mention here. Taking this piece home: Bar cart no 1. For obvious reasons. Eating a lot of: French fries, when no one is looking. Using this textile: We just did a bunch of pieces for Holland & Sherry’s first NYC location on Elizabeth Street in Nolita-a lot of tartan, checks and hound’s tooth. It was a great collaboration. Following on Pinterest: We can’t get enough of Pinterest. It’s just such an incredible way to communicate our inspiration to the world.
