CHAPEL HILL, N.C., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when two American expats land in Copenhagen, discover the beauty of Danish Design, return to the US, and later decide to become entrepreneurs?
The answer is PALETTE & PARLOR, a considered collection of authentic modern furniture and home furnishings with a distinctive point of view. "Living in Copenhagen opened my eyes to the craftsmanship and elegant simplicity of Danish Design," says Ivy Simon, founder, "while growing up in the South imbued me with an appreciation of soft touches like fresh flowers on tables and cozy throws on reading chairs. Pairing the two yields beautiful results."
"We both come from entrepreneurial families and knew we wanted to start our own business," says John Simon, co-founder. "Like Denmark, North Carolina has a long tradition of craftsmanship and quality in furniture making, but we saw an unmet need in our local market for a place to buy and customize authentic modern furniture."
"Our aspiration is to be a unique resource for design enthusiasts like ourselves, as well as for interior designers, architects, and builders," says Ivy. "Whether online / mobile, social, or in studio, we will be available for our customers and their clients whichever way they choose to interact with us. We believe that creating an omnichannel presence is crucial for building a business that endures."
PALETTE & PARLOR is proud to be an authorized dealer for iconic, abiding furniture makers such as Knoll, Carl Hansen & Son, Fritz Hansen, and Vitra, while also offering uncommon finds from newer design talent like NC-made DwellStudio for Precedent furniture, Brooklyn-based Pelle Designs, &Tradition Copenhagen, and Bend Goods Los Angeles.
With featured artist Martha Neaves exhibiting her large-scale tempera-and-oil-on-board Ambidextrous paintings for the summer season, PALETTE & PARLOR opens the door to a blend of art, furniture, and home furnishings previously unavailable in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill metro area.
