Modern Edge Collection from Caracole

At the edge of exceptional and eternal, you’ll find this instinctive collection pushing the limits and stretching the boundaries of design. Mirroring the movement of minimalism in all facets of contemporary living, it offers furnishings that convey an experience. Bold, linear planes and straightforward forms are elevated with geometric elements. Simpler silhouettes are handsomely tailored to create furnishings with exceptional lines. Wood, stone and metal give this collection an organic simplicity and are highlighted with shadowy finishes and touches of metallic Bronze. Beyond stunning, these thoughtfully crafted designs represent the epitome of modern living.
Urban, mid and generous scaled products create a diverse functionality for working this collection in almost any space requirement. Working with a young new designer we crafted a collection inspired by today’s trends for cleaner lines with geometric shapes and crisp angles to reflect a youthful metropolitan vibe. Against the straight lines we plied veneers with contrasting bronze on ebony to create visual depth and warmth. The saturated colors of upholstery compliment the warm golden bronze metal finishes and renew a harmony against the defined angles and shapes of the collection. There is an intentional moodiness to the collection that suggests an appreciation for industrial durability and an inherent desire to live surrounded by comfort.
Modern Edge is a contemporary whole home collection that combines linear and geometric influences that are occasionally contrasted with curves, rounds, and even organic movement. The linear designs are accentuated with figured quartered eucalyptus and engineered ebony veneers which both add directional characteristics to panels and frames. These veneers are mixed with plated metal, stone, cast resin, cast metal, brown tinted glass, and hardware featuring subtle textured surfaces. Items are sized and scaled for urban settings and environments with smaller sizes, lower profiles, and more narrow footprints. The mixed materials and various design features combine in a modern design created with function in mind.

Finishes

SHADOW is a deep gray tone on figured quartered eucalyptus. The quartered veneer creates the linear pattern appropriate for these designs, and the figure provides dark and light color variations within the panels.

STRIATED EBONY is a relatively clear finish with just a bit of tint from the stains. The color and character primarily come from the engineered ebony veneer which is a fabrication of light and dark wood veneer combined to create the dark background with linear highlights which emulates natural quartered ebony.

BRAZEN BRONZE LEAF is a new bronze tinted silver leaf that is used on two items to create just a bit of glamorous contrast.

ECLIPSE is a solid black-brown paint formulated to blend well with all of the collections finishes and is primarily used on solid wood chair and stool frames.

LUCENT BRONZE is a cool bronze plated metal color that is lightly brushed to soften the reflectivity and make the plated metal easier to live with.

LUCENT BRONZE METALLIC PAINT is a metallic paint formulated from the color of the Lucent Bronze plated metal. This metallic paint is used on wood moldings, metal components and textured castings.
