AUSTIN, TEXAS (March 29, 2022) — Four Hands, the leading global designer and wholesaler of trendsetting lifestyle home furnishings, will feature more than 1,000 products at their 30,000 square foot showroom at High Point Market. Launching over 600 products since last High Point Market, Four Hands’ focus has been on developing unique pieces that allow customers to design authentic and highly personalized spaces from floor to ceiling, with an emphasis on art, accessories, pillows, lighting and rugs.
Four Hands’ Spring collection introduces a new Heritage look inspired by vintage European designs. From upholstery to case goods, heirloom and antique-style pieces take shape as consumers look to bring comfort and familiarity into their homes. Helmed by Vice President of Design, Adam Dunn, the Four Hands design team revitalized traditional design elements like aged leathers, naturally distressed woods and dramatic curves for added comfort.
“The search for familiarity will be pervasive in emergent furniture trends,” says Four Hands Director of Upholstery, Jessica Green. “We’ve weaved traditional design elements like English roll arms, bun feet and moderate wings into the modern home for a fresh take on nostalgic styles.”
“Think of these as reimagined classics,” Dunn said. “We’re taking elements from them and paring them back a bit. The best thing is that they’re all designed to be blended with more modern styles and everything else in our assortment.”
On the art front, Four Hands will showcase nearly 170 pieces of art at High Point Market with new pieces from customer favorites like Jess Engle, Dan Hobday, and Aileen Fitzgerald, along with an expanded selection of exclusive art pieces all designed, printed, and framed in-house in Austin, Texas. Antique inspiration continues into art with a new vintage-inspired gilded frame available on select pieces.
Time-honored techniques like hand-thrown ceramics and hand-woven textiles are also making their debut, in addition to an expansion of hand-knotted rugs.
Inspired by a tradition that's been around for over a thousand years, this new collection of vases is crafted from clay made in-house at a female-owned ceramic studio in western Mexico. These one-of-a-kind pieces are shaped on a pottery wheel by hand, lending each subtle imperfections including grooves visible on the inside of each piece from the potter's fingers, and finished in natural earth tones for an organic look and feel.
