Alden Parkes Furniture: Updated Classics

We were delighted when we started to carry new Alden Parkes furniture and home accessories, and our customers have been delighted with their purchases too! Alden Parkes is very clever at updating classic furniture designs for today’s homes. The craftsmanship is also very high quality including hand-carved details, using top notch materials including fine woods and solid brass hardware.

Alden Parkes Cocktail TableFor example, this gorgeous new hand-painted Alden Parkes Yin cocktail table or coffee table. It’s a perfect choice if you love Chinoiserie or have an Asian decor theme. The square cocktail table is crafted in wood with a traditional Asian style black finish. A design of bamboo and birds is hand-painted in antique gold on the top of the table. You can see how luxurious it looks and the distressing creates a sense of age.

Alden Parkes Asian Cocktail Table Hand PaintedEqually handsome but in a very different historical style, we love this this Alden Parkes Tudor chest.

Alden Parkes Tudor ChestPart of the fun of this piece is the secret drawer in the base panel! The chest is flanked by hand-turned and carved acacia barley twist corner posts, and it is inlaid with oak burl with a distressed finish.

Alden Parkes ConsoleSome Alden Parkes pieces are real showstoppers, like this Alden Parkes console. The demilune or semi-circular glass top is supported by a sculptural base that reminds us of ocean waves. The Champagne leaf finish is super-glamorous. This console is a wonderful focal point for your foyer or perhaps you’ll enjoy it in a bedroom or even a chic powder room!

Alden Parkes Dining Arm ChairAlso packed with glamour, this Alden Parkes dining chair or arm chair is just one of a wide selection of arm chairs, dining chairs, side chairs and occasional chairs.

Inspired by antique French furniture, this chair is beautifully decorative with its classic honeysuckle design. The mahogany chair is hand-carved and hand-painted, and upholstered in timeless Euro Linen fabric.

The chair is available in two color options: Burnished Silver with gold accents or a soft semi-gloss black with light green and gold hand painted accents. Either way, it’s a treat for your dining room or anywhere that you need a gorgeous arm chair.

In a completely different style, this new Alden Parkes cabinet is a stunning update on Mid-Century Modern furniture.

Alden Parkes MidCentury CabinetThe storage cabinet is designed with clever interlocking sliding doors and you can use it as a cabinet, sideboard, console, or dresser. It is finished with a luscious hand-rubbed walnut stain which gives a warm glow. Solid brass accents provide the perfect final touch.

Client Spotlight: Spanish Style Madrid Dining Chairs

It’s always great to see how our customers’ homes look with the furniture they have purchased from us. Heidi’s chic dining room featuring our Madrid dining chairs is no exception!

Madrid Dining Chairs Spanish Style linen Heidi B. in North Attleboro, MA, purchased a set of ten Madrid dining chairs from us. Although the chairs are new, they are packed with Old World appeal.  The chairs are made with solid kiln-dried wood and crafted with traditional joinery and hand construction techniques. (We only work with reproduction furniture companies who meet our high standards for quality, finish, and value. Yes, we’re picky – but in the best possible way!)

As you can guess from the name, the Madrid dining chairs are influenced by traditional Spanish styling. The silhouette of the chair back and the turned spindle shaping of the front legs and stretcher help create the mood. A bold nailhead trim around the linen upholstery adds another authentic touch. The Madrid dining chairs are a perfect match for Spanish Mission style decor.

The Madrid dining chairs look amazing in Heidi’s home. The dining room continues that Old World Spanish feel with the big spiral candlesticks and a standing cross on the sideboard. Large glass pendant lights hung by chunky chains from the ceiling are a lovely feature too. The two lights are perfectly proportioned. They have enough heft to balance the substance of the dining table and chairs while also creating an alluringly luminous glow. The neutral linen fabric on the Madrid dining chairs pairs beautifully with the pale patterned carpet, and I think the nailhead trim on the chairs is one of those subtle details that helps pull the whole look together. Just delightful!

I bet Heidi and her husband are wonderful hosts and I can only imagine the festive dinner parties that take place in this inviting setting. I’m picturing tapas and a nice Spanish wine to continue the Old World flavor, but honestly I’d say yes to pizza and juice too! Thanks to Heidi for sharing this photo of her new Madrid dining chairs.
