Shaw Living Aligns with Artist Bob Timberlake
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, May 14, 2011
DALTON, GA. - Shaw Living has partnered with longtime artist and designer Bob Timberlake to create a new collection of area rugs.
The launch took place during the High Point Furniture Market earlier this month.
Shaw described this new collection as a representation of "a celebration of a slower pace, a sense of history and an appreciation of nature."
For the past four-plus decades, Lexington, N.C.-based Timberlake has been known for his realistic painting style that draws its inspiration from "simplistic beauty found in everyday rural southern living," Shaw said.
The Bob Timberlake area rug collection will span machine-woven products made of Shaw's own EverTouch-branded nylon, which is recyclable, and are available in six sizes that range from 1-foot-10-inch-by-2-foot-9- inch to 9-foot-6-inch-by-12-foot- 10-inch. The suggested retail for a 5-foot-5-inch-by- 7-foot-9-inch is $739.
The style groups that make up the design portfolio are:
• Forest Ferns, a botanical look that features oversized fronds and foliage silhouetted and overlapping in a sophisticated color palette - dark green, dark brown, beige, and cranberry;
• Hearthside, which is inspired by the natural beauty and texture of timeworn and weathered wood, available in dark brown and beige;
• Heritage Heriz, which takes its cues from the slopes of Mount Sabalan and incorporates traditional geometric elements and a center medallion in a primitive style. It is available in navy, beige, and dark brown.
The rugs are the latest addition to Timberlake's licensed collection of home furnishings, which currently also includes furniture, lamps and decorative artwork.
