WOODSTOCK, Ga. – Case goods and upholstery resource Southern Sky Home has partnered with Atlanta-based interior designer Pacita Wilson for a new collection to debut at the Oct. 14-18 High Point Market.

The 30-plus piece Pineapple Park collection is named after Wilson’s Pineapple Park boutique just north of Atlanta and features artisan-crafted pieces that combine vintage and new curated looks.

“The Pineapple Park Home collection is more than just another furniture line,” Wilson said. “The pieces have been designed to move effortlessly throughout the home, taking on new life in each space.

"When Bill Grace approached us with the opportunity to collaborate, we saw an immediate synergy. His vast knowledge of the furniture industry combined with an ability to anticipate what's next in creating living spaces that transcend the ordinary while still remaining very accessible was intriguing and a natural fit.”

Key pieces include the clean-lined Chambers dining table made with solid mango in a carbon finish; the Hunter sideboard in a gray-wash finish and featuring a linen interior; the Lodia console table featuring a rough-sawn solid hardwood top and iron base; and the Mota cocktail table in a black finish and featuring 8-inch solid wood legs.

“Our goal is to help consumers express their personal style by offering unique items that are at once timeless and have multiple potential uses within the home,” said Grace, founder and president of Southern Sky Home. “We felt Pacita’s design aesthetic and passion for bringing interiors to life complemented our focus of creating distinctive pieces that really make a home feel special. The new collection is an artfully inspired mix of furniture that reflects Pacita’s sophisticated eye and discerning palette, while providing pieces that can morph over time as a customer’s tastes and environments evolve.”

At market, the collection will be on display at Showplace 2312.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
