Radiant Orchid is the new black!

And the Pantone Color of the Year for 2014 is…… RADIANT ORCHID! 

When deciding how exactly you can or should incorporate this color into your home, there are a few things for you to consider, such as whether you want to subtly introduce it or take it to the next level. You also may want to banish the preconceived notion that it only belongs in your daughters room!  You would be surprised that this color is the perfect balance of playful and sophisticated and fits perfectly in any room in the home.You can go large by choosing it for a main focal piece like an upholstered sofa or sectional or ease into it with smaller accents like a painted wall and accessory pieces like area rugs, lighting or pillows.  Whichever way you choose to implement it, we feel this uplifting color will bring joy to you and your loved ones at home whenever you encounter it.

Radiant Orchid has a combination of confidence and magical warmth that is eye catching and ignites the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple that will draw you in with its charm. With a combination of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates joy, love and health! Nothing more we can ask for in the coming year!

Radiant Orchid Interiors Mood Board


“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” 

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.

Items pictured in mood board are available at Wasser's Exclusive Furniture & Interiors and ready to ship for the holidays!

"When I left Art Center, I thought Modern design would change the world. Now, I no longer have such lofty hopes, but perhaps the world is just a bit better off because of it. In any event, good Modern has already proven to be the most enduring, timeless and classic of all design movements."- Milo Baughman

With great pleasure, the Wasser's were able to attend this festive affair! 

FOR 50 YEARS, Thayer Coggin and Milo Baughman collaborated on designs, engineering, and manufacturing techniques that came to define the mid-century modern era of American residential furniture.
Today, the design classics of Milo Baughman, Allan Gould and others are still built and crafted according to their original and exacting specifications at Thayer Coggin furniture. All of our mid-century modern classsics are custom made to order and handcrafted in our headquarters in High Point, North Carolina.
All Thayer Coggin upholstery is bench-made with the same craftsperson
upholstering the entire piece. Our furniture is made with the finest materials available and is fully customizable. Our products are available in a variety of wood, metal and fabric options. Our in-house fabric supply boasts hundreds of fabric choices in a variety of colors, patterns and materials, and we gladly accept client fabrics.
Thayer Coggin uses the highest quality cushioning available: all polyurethane foams used in our seat constructions are environmentally-safe and produced without the use of ozone destroying CFC's. These premium cushions are proven in laboratory tests and actual applications to be durable, versatile and very comfortable.

Welcome to the world of mid- century modern.

"With an ongoing interest in 1950s and 1960s design, a lot of my work has been reintroduced and been very well-received. Increasingly, architects are using these mid-century classics from the pioneer producers of this period."-Milo Baughman

On Oct 21st 2013, the Wasser's Furniture family was invited to share in the celebration of Thayer Coggin's 60th anniversary while honoring a true design star in the modern furniture industry Milo Baughman. The Party was decked out with 60's themed decor, drinks, games and even guests and bartenders dressed up for the part!

We had the honor of meeting the Coggin/Baughman family that evening.
It was a delight meeting Debbie Baughman, daughter of Milo Baugman, who was an absolute pleasure to spend quality time with and get to speak to at this lovely party.

Before the party, I fell in love with the scoop chair and purchased it for our showroom. Later that night, I asked Debbie to take a picture in the chair her father designed, so I can place it in my showroom where we will be displaying a Thayer Coggin/Milo Baughman gallery to showcase some the beautiful designs. Her reply was, "I had no idea my father was so famous, but I'd be happy to!"

Mission Possible!

Did you ever have the urge to create a one of a kind piece of furniture, let your imagination run wild, come up with concept, design, color for wood finish and all the details only to find your idea cannot come into fruition due to the limitations in the capacity of your freight elevator or door way entrances?

Well... Our crew can make the impossible, possible.

We were recently working with a repeat client of ours who has relied upon us for design assistance, measuring, room plans and color selection for their bar area, living room, sitting area and dining room. 

This client has a large open dining area shared with the living space and wanted a grand dining table to be able to host large dinner parties, family occasions and holiday affairs. After we measured for her, we concluded a 120'' fixed solid wood dining table in exotic ebony would be perfect. We picked out gorgeous matching dining chairs in ebony wood and ivory leather to coordinate with the American Leather Feliz swivel chairs we used in the sitting area in the same open space from the dining room. 

Prior to placing the custom order from Italy, we wanted to make sure we would be able to get this extra large, one piece, 120'' dining table into their high-rise condo.  Our delivery crew inspected the receiving space and found the elevator was exactly 10ft. This left us without an inch to spare for wrapping the table top to protect it from damages in the elevator.  That was not an option.

The next idea... up 8 floors, poolside, through the balcony, into the sliding glass doors off the living room. Could it be done? Well, we had our crane crew and white glove delivery team inspect the territory to make sure we can go from ground up for a safe and secure delivery. Long story short, we were not taking no for an answer. Our client wanted a 10 ft table, we were going to get her a 10 ft table!

Post delivery shot: Nothing like getting a solid 120" dining table up 8 floors, through the balcony, then into the dining room with a crane! We've got you covered with whatever you need!
