You know what they say: out with the old, in with the new.
How very shortsighted they are. Nana’s needlepoint pillows? They rival Jonathan Adler’s. And Mom’s vintage DVF? Back away from the trash can. If they told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?
No, you’d tell them where they could go and settle into a piece of Neo Prim furniture. The line of Indonesian tables, beds, sofas, and chests is made from carpenters’ workbenches from the last century. Each piece of marked and aged teak is reworked into a modern, sleek design.
A tall chest of drawers is lightened with side shelves. Oval end tables blend seamlessly with your Pottery Barn living room. And a platform bed made from individual planks looks just like something you’d find in an of-the-moment trendsetter home design journal. Because you know what else they say.
Everything old is new again.
