urban logic

By Dacee Kentner

There is something to be said for classic furniture -  that timeless look that never goes out of style and continues to build character over its years of use.  As we’ve seen in the past several years, mid-century modern has taken the industry by storm with a new cool, modern twist on the classic American style.  Every furniture line, inexpensive to couture, has embraced what the early 20th century designers gave us- clean lines and natural materials.  It has become trendy and cool to dig through grandpa’s furniture and redo pieces that later will be a conversation piece for friends and family.  

The newest line from Hancock and Moore is Urban Logic.  This line fits right into the idea of taking classic looks and upgrading them to something even better. Hancock and Moore is known for high grade leather furnishings.  When someone walks through the door at Wheeler’s, looking for the best of the best in leather, I lead them right over to a Hancock and Moore arrangement.  Each piece in the Urban Logic line screams style that will endure for decades to come.  Rich, gorgeous leathers and soft, luxurious fabrics paired with straight lines, natural woods, and solid metals creates a look that everyone from grandpa to grandson will drool over.  

One of my favorites from this line includes the Westbury sofa.  I first saw this sofa in a market preview in Furniture Today.  I immediately called our Hancock and Moore representative and begged for any details he could provide.  With its lovely slanted lines and industrial looking base, I couldn’t wait to see it in person.  My other favorites include: the Girard bench, Twist chair and ottoman, Addicks chair, Clara chair, Fulton sofa, and Maverick chair.

Right now on our showroom floor, we have the Ava sofa and chair in Angelo Cream leather.  Not only are they beautiful in design, the leather cushions wrap you up in comfort.  It’s unfortunate, but I cannot even begin to describe how nice this is to sit on, so I encourage you to come try it for yourself!
