Mid-Century Reconsidered: A New Collection Takes Another Look at the Furniture CrazeBY Rebecca Sherman // 06.16.16
Scout Design Studio is sought by decorators and the design-minded for mid-century finds from covetable names Milo Baughman, Henredon and Carl Springer. Now the studio is conquering new territory: Owners Tiffany Taylor and Flann Harris have debuted a furniture collection, Scout Label.
Vintage wares inspire the goods, but Scout Label reinvents modern furniture in a way that’s easily incorporated into the contemporary home. All began to take shape when Taylor and Harris found themselves constantly altering vintage pieces for customers, adding height to chair seats and raising the legs of tables and dressers.
“Scout Label is a fresher take on vintage, in the right size people need for how they live now,” Taylor says. The line includes dining and occasional chairs, bar stools, a sofa, and side and coffee tables, all in customizable upholstery and finishes such as brass, rose gold, chrome, glass and marble.
With in-house upholstery, refinishing and lacquer services, the possibilities are endless. Look for accessories, too: blankets and pillows made of hand-woven textiles sourced by Taylor during a buying trip to India, and a collection of lamps and mirrors due out this fall.
