Hooker expands accent collection for spring home accents today classic menu

The eclectic collection blends colors, textures and materials to create a vibrant assortment across five trend-driven design stories: weathered luxe, rich wood, belgian chic, glam and mixed materials.

“we are approaching melange with a new strategy this market by merchandising the new pieces in five different stories in our showroom,” said steve lush, president of hooker case goods. “each story portrays the different micro trends we have identified in the marketplace that have become very popular in interior home design.”

Inspired by a rustic, coastal vibe, the weathered luxe trend includes pieces in natural wood tones and weathered gray finishes. Anchored by neutral hues, distinctive materials include faux horn accents and oil rubbed bronze metallic details highlights include the three-tiered avila cocktail table in a weathered gray finish with a textured oil-rubbed bronze base.Cocktail table


A sophisticated take on updated traditional design, the rich wood story is characterized by dark and rich wood tones applied to modern and contemporary forms, combined with pops of brass and champagne accents. Constructed with walnut veneers in a dark brown finish, the esperanza two-door chest features an abstract blue and gold pattern on the door fronts.

Belgian chic is inspired by the lifestyle trend of wabi sabi – the art of living with imperfection. Pieces in this category are designed with rustic finishes, unique materials and interesting textures, all of which combine to create a cozy and organic feel. Finishes and materials include rustic grays, dark charcoal, textured concrete, white plaster and carved stone.Cocktail table the dramatically scaled 110-inch koren credenza features a rustic gray finish and heavily textured concrete top with three large, circular, textured metal pulls in a dark pewter finish. The multifunctional piece works as a serving or entertainment unit.

Refined and sophisticated, the glam story features high sheen finishes on transitional forms paired with bright metallic accents. Finishes and materials include fumed eucalyptus, highly figured anigre veneers, gold and silver leaf accents as well as a variety of unique stones. The adora cocktail table features an unexpected and contemporary asymmetrical silhouette in a high-sheen fumed eucalyptus finish with white lacquer anigre veneer edge-banding on the sides.Cocktail table

As its name depicts, the mixed materials story features a variety of unique elements including metal, stone, concrete, acrylic and glass, each of which is used in unexpected ways to create one-of-a-kind artistic pieces. Highlights include the graham wine console with marble top and open metal base with storage space for up to 40 wine bottles.
