GUIDE: NEW SOUTH
We decided to name a furniture collection after one of our favorite regions on Earth: The American South, or more aptly, the New South.
The New South is next wave, progressive and open. It’s fueled by makers, artist and creatives of all color, inclination, provenance and stripe. It’s Muscle Shoals, the Virginia-Highland and (yes) it’s High Point.
As it translates into a furniture collection, S+E New South designs are both fresh and iconic, where tradition meets progress. Materials and craftsmanship are honest. Look for native wood species, live edge and thoughtful natural finishes.
Today, the New South collection includes dining tables, cabinets and consoles. There is more to come. The tide cannot be turned.
Every New South design is conceived and made with passion and a distinct point of view. Yet we welcome – even covet – customizations and new ideas. As designers ourselves, we recognize the need to customize based on creative vision, floor plan requirements and client needs.
Not a problem. Flexibility is built into our process. In fact, every New South piece is made to order by hand in our North Carolina workroom. Let’s collaborate. Here’s how our custom process generally unfolds:
- Where to begin? Easy: An existing New South design is your inspiration launch pad.
- Next, show us your specs. Roughly sketch your desired customization with as much informative detail as you can offer.
- We will then connect with you one-on-one and flesh out more detail.
- Incoming! You’ll next see shop drawings and a full quotation, both for your final approval.
- Of note, custom orders must be paid in full before production begins. No returns are allowed. We really are making the piece just for you!
- S+E will keep you apprised of lead time, but overall you may expect delivery 8-15 weeks after sign off.
Ready to make our day with a custom challenge? Just email or call now. Let’s design together.
It’s about man and machine. The New South factory is state of the art and old-school. The collection honors and advances tradition.
Can we talk joinery? Look for visible marks of quality in every New South piece, including live edge wood and authentic dovetailing.
Materials and craftsmanship come together to create some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture made in America (or anywhere)!
