ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- Chelsea House will unveil the Lisa Kahn Collection of occasional furniture, mirrors, art, lighting and decorative accessories at the upcoming High Point Market, Oct. 13-18.
Lisa Kahn, a well-known designer based in Naples, Fla., designed the eponymous collection with Chelsea House. Kahn, who owns Kahn Design Group and does both residential and commercial design, is known for her fresh take on traditional, classic and serene interiors, according to a press release.
"We could not be more excited," said Bill Cain, Chelsea House. "From our initial meetings with Lisa, to the first design sketches through to the manufacturing of the products, the collection has surpassed our expectations at each stage. Lisa's unique talent and acumen for what inspires are incredible and she has a sixth sense on making spaces sing. In addition, she is a lovely person and a great collaborator."
The collection will be shown together in Chelsea House's High Point showroom at 200 N. Hamilton. Kahn will also help design the company's entire showroom.
"I am thrilled and honored to be working with Chelsea House," Kahn said. "Chelsea House is a line I have loved for years because of its timeless elegance and beautiful details. My hope is that I can bring new looks while retaining the company's tradition of excellence."
The collection features different motifs including architecture, tracery, reflections, classic gilt, blossoms and birds, according to a press release. Materials used include antique mirror, metal, silk, wood, and sea glass. Celtic knots, organic florals, branch patterns, birds and quatrefoil designs appear throughout the collection.
"The philosophy behind the collection is to design lighting, accessories, furniture and artwork that are easy to place in the kinds of rooms I design," Kahn said. "I wanted to put into the market things that I would love to buy - fresh, updated classics that fit into a multitude of styles."
Chelsea House will host a meet-and-greet cocktail party with Kahn in the company's showroom on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 4-6 p.m.
