The New Lexington Black Ice Collection

Lexington's Black Ice Collection is an exciting contemporary design statement. The inspiration is born of traditional campaign styling,whose clean lines and iconic hardware give the collection a comfortable sense of familiarity. The contemporary inspiration starts with polished silver metal bases and hardware. Black Ice pieces are crafted from Austrian Ash, with long elegant grain lines, and finished in a sophisticated satin black Carbon finish. The eye-catching juxtaposition of silver against Carbon gives this collection its extraordinary, dramatic edge. The unmistakable Campaign reference makes this line accessible to a broad array of homeowners, yet also with a contemporary flair. Like Hancock Park, this collection references the old and new in a stunning combination. The Black Ice Collection is available in bedroom, dining, living room, media, home office, and upholstery collections

Black Ice takes classic chair frames and by applying a black lacquer finishnickel nailhead trim, leather, graphic or textured fabrics, makes the perfect seat. The LL1601-11 Opal Chair has a woven metallic fabric (4715-71) applied to the tight back and black leather (0145-71) upholstered on the tight seat, with the standard ONYX finish, and 3/8 inch nickel nailhead trim — perfect style and comfort.

Similar to the cycling of fashion in apparel, the retro look is back in fashion in many categories including furniture. The Moonstone Chair is a metal frame with upholstered arm pad and available in custom order fabric or leather. The chair pictured has a white faux ostrich leather, pearlized for a secondary pop of interest. The angle of the chair results in a quite comfortables fit. All the upholstery designed for Black Ice has a lower seat height typical of contemporary upholstery designs, yet also has a nice depth making it comfortable for all sizes.

The 7975-11-01 Sapphire Leather Chair and 7975-44-01 Sapphire Leather Ottoman pictured at right are available in a soft white or blacker than black leather. Their lower seat height stays true to contemporary design yet is balanced with great depth to provide maximum comfort as you lounge in contemporary style!

The 332-933C Titanium Writing Desk takes center stage in the office, as an accent table or even set as a bar for social gatherings in the loft apartment. The black leather writing surface is a hard finished (flat pressed) contemporary leather bordered by a silver inlay and complements the linear grain of the quartered Austrian Ash wood desk. Following suit with traditional Campaign hardware, the polished silver a-frame base is the foundation for the contemporary home office.

The Graphite Panel Bed anchors the bedroom with the Austrian Ash wood framing a leather inset panel with two rows of 7/16-inch silver nailhead, and a second leather inset panel that is padded and saddle-stitched. The wood side rails and footboard are designed with recessed lines producing a unique dimension of depth. The clean lines and multiple materials result in a look that is not simple, but stunning.

The 332-864 Glacier Curio has familiarity of design and versatility in presentation. The etched glass on the doors are attractive and radiant when lit. The polished silver base is used on several pieces in the collection to enhance the contemporary interpretation of a classic and add flash to the room. The linear grain of the Austrian Ash is displayed dramatically along the height of the side panels and certainly shows the importance of creating a depth of finish that features the inherent quality and natural character of the wood. Shown here with the 332-880-01 Mica Leather Side Chair.

The Pearl Armless Chair (7304-11) allows for self expression and mixing of custom upholstered fabric and leathers (fabric 6982-71).

The Mica Leather Chair is available as a side chair only, but certainly can be used as the desk chair. The 332-864 Glacier Curio is versatile as a dining cabinet or for display.
