Gallery III is sooooo close to being ready!

From This.....


To This.....


In Just 8 Weeks!

Its been a tremendous amount of work, but over the course of the last two months, we have transformed an 8,000 square foot unfinished space into a haven for upscale home design.   Carolina Rustica now has over 20,000 square feet of showroom space in our home in Gibson Mills, in Concord, NC.  The new space features some of our favorite U.S. manufacturers, such as Hickory White, Century, Habersham, Kincaid Furniture, Eddy West (featured in last week's blog post), Cambridge Mills, Fairmont Designs and Charleston Forge.  These are all manufacturers with a domestic manufacturing presence, and they will be front and center in our "Made in America" section of the new space.   We will also have a designer work area (shown above) with some refreshments available, as well as a home and office space and a juvenile gallery.   8,000 square feet is a lot of space and we are going to fill it up quickly!  Our first gallery is in the process of being converted into a high end mattress gallery, offering even more variety and selection to our customers.  This is the only  location in the Charlotte region where you can find furniture, lighting, and mattresses from over 100 suppliers, all under one roof.  (okay, we're a little proud of that....)

Eddy West Furniture in Our New Gallery

Eddy West Furniture has a proud place in the front of our new gallery, which features the best of American-made furniture.   This company began with a love for the styles of the American Old West with its roots firmly ground in colors and designs found in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. Made in the mountain town of Toccoa, Georgia, Eddy West has flourished over the years to include styles found in Colonial New England and Canada. All Eddy West pieces begin with solid construction from either New England White Pine and/or a mixture of hard woods (poplar, oaks and maples) in the North Georgia Mountains. Once they are hand crafted and built they are hand finished in your choice of over 45 colors and five different aging techniques depending on your personal style. Eddy West also offers hand painted art on several of their pieces.
The Three Drawer Chest is shown above. Available only as shown in Ancient Black Finish with Hand Painted Floral Art. The hardware is in a Painted Pewter. Overall size is 42.25 in. W x 20 in. D x 39 in. H.  To the left is the Square End Table, available only as shown in Bamboo finish with heavy Distressing. The Drawer pull is an unpainted Pewter finish. Overall size is 23 in. W x 23 in. D x 28.5 in. H. This is a great, simple little table that could be anything from lodge to colonial in style.   However, our favorite piece so far is the Southwest Bench shown below. Available only as shown in Streets of Moscow finish and Lightly Distressed Aging. Overall size is 62 in. W x 22 in. D x 36 in. H.  At $899 plus shipping, this is a perfect item to provide that finishing touch to your cozy home or lodge.   Rider, saddle, and boots not included.
