The designs of the Hammary Mercantile Desk Chair group take their direction from honest Simple forms that were primarily used for utilitarian purposes and were found in out buildings, barns and cottages throughout the region. A Metal Base Cocktail, End Console Tables with two-tone tray accents offer a starting package. The Flat File/Map Cocktail offers upgraded styling with two-tone drawer fronts and Flip Top gadget storage. The Entertainment Wall and Home Office pieces showcase two-tone finishes as well, and all drawer pieces make use of period specific label-slotted hardware pulls.
Inspired by turn of the century commercial fixtures, the Hammary Mercantile Desk Chair collection is an array of combined elements drawn from nostalgia filled environments such as early 19th Century hardware stores, libraries and local groceries. Specific Inspiration was taken from elements such as pigeon hole storage areas, labeled drawer bins and the finish, which is warm and worn; a look usually only characterized by time.
