The InTransit Collection was inspired by what has been called the “transitional movement” in furniture styling and design. The initial emphasis was that the case construction had to be solid wood throughout. The InTransit Collection was our first urban collection, sleek and contemporary, but with a “urban loft” industrial living theme. The bed design becomes its own living space entity, with six drawers available under to act as an entire dresser in small-space living.
The initial design of the InTransit Bedroom suite was built in Walnut with a black walnut stain applied. Walnut has become in today’s generation what Mahogany was to pre and post World War II consumers, the gold standard for quality.
While looking for an urban space for a potential showroom, Mark Gatterdam and Todd Breeden (the marketing coordinator) had the idea that we needed to offer a transitional collection. We thought we should create a collection that would appeal to a 30-something crowd, one who still wanted a contemporary look, but now could appreciate something better than particleboard.
The handles for the collection were specifically chosen from tens of thousands of choices. The distressed pewter handles accentuate the industrial feel. That said, handles can be changed out to suit your particular wants and needs because it is made-to-order. You can create a collection that is uniquely yours by changing something as simple as the handles and the wood. The collection has maintained popularity in our Bethesda showroom, where micro-living is the norm.
