I love it when a furniture collection reflects the designer's personality well.  Bringing big talent together with product design is a genius idea, especially when it all works.  Luxury furniture company, Aidan Gray Home just debuted the Antiques Diva Collection by Aidan Gray during this October at High Point Furniture Market. With over 15 pieces, this collection is stunning and utilizes artisanal detailing like hand carved wood yet combines it with modern touches like Lucite and faux leather. The collection works with Aidan Gray's long time philosophy of streamlining the look and feel of traditional furniture.  Additionally, the collection fits Toma Clark Haines like a glove.  The curvey pieces match her effervescent personality, and the juxtaposition of old and new bring together Toma's two decades of traveling the globe foraging for interior design, antiques and collectibles.  The time was right, and she brings that astuteness to this unique furniture collection.  Thoughts of Louis 16th come to mind, a time when the French discovered Pompeii so there was a big return to the  "new classical" design, today what we call neo-classic design.
 We love this Lucite-backed
 stiletto legged chair

"I was heavily influenced by neo-classic design with this collection, and it's all about modern design meeting antiques, yet creating designs for today with materials that were not available during the time. Although back in the day, Demi Lune tables were often designed with marble tops, I kept this one modern and we used a 1 inch thick lucite top and a long thicker, 3rd lucite leg that runs the entire back of the piece for a stunning result...I always say, opposites attract!"  -Toma Clark Haines
The Console Demilune is small in scale
 but packs a big style punch!
Randal Weeks and Toma Clark Haines met over six years ago, when the Antiques Diva helped source antiques throughout France and England for Aidan Gray.  They quickly knew they wanted to design a collection together, yet one that was more than simply reproduction furniture, instead, a collection that would pay homage to the past while looking to the future- goal accomplished!  
the channeled seamed and 
eight way hand-tied seating is a statement piece for certain
Happy Nesting
