Hickory Chair, one of the lines we carry at Knox and Panoply, turned to the Museum of New Mexico for design inspiration for its Traditions Made Modern collection. Traditions Made Modern is a case and upholstery collection comprised of unique pieces inspired by artifacts from the Museum of International Folk Art and the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe. These world-class museums are two of the four that comprise the Museum of New Mexico, one of the largest state-run museum systems in the US.

 

This bedroom grouping from the collection includes the Jess Bed, which features a cathedral ash footboard and solid ash posts capped with a metal sabot finished in Modern Gun Metal and a wonderfully unique woven headboard accented with nail trim on the back side.

 

Also featured is the Circles table, a piece that is made to measure in increments of four inches because of the size of the circle cutouts. The armchair featured is the Empire Occasional Chair, which offers understated elegance in a contemporary silhouette.
