Home Zone: Contour your comfort at home
by Maggie Reed

Pull up a chair. Open the wine and turn on the music.

Gloster Furniture has recently launched a new line, Symphony.

Gracefully composed of rich, chestnut-colored, all-weather wicker intertwined with smooth straight-grained plantation teak, the Symphony's sweeping lines form an elegant curvature that contours to the body.

"Symphony is about the sounding together of classic design elements," said Eric Parsons, national sales manager for Gloster. "It is a collection for the traditionalist at heart, who is tired of tradition. Using teak and all-weather wicker, we have interpreted the natural elegance of Gloster's classic compositions into a piece of art perfect for enjoying a stylish dinner or concert al fresco."

Designed by John Caldwell, the line includes 14 pieces including dining tables with slatted teak table tops, chairs, and glass-topped occasional tables with a hidden recess for displaying souvenirs and keepsakes.

When dinner is over, why not take further refuge in a piece from the Scoop Collection.

The curves of the Scoop lounger invite one to sink down and enjoy this lightweight, easily movable piece.

But, it is designer Mark Gabbertas' Nest lounger that takes Scoop's curve to the next level. The Nest could seem imposing at 43 inches tall and 73 1/2 inches wide, but instead it becomes an inviting sanctuary for one or two to cocoon away an afternoon or evening.

"I wanted Scoop to look inviting and comforting," said Gabbertas. "The larger-than-life Nest was the last piece to join the range and I wanted to create exactly that: a cocooning, embracing and sheltering environment that would give privacy when turned, but which also had a throne-like quality with its high back. I felt this perhaps would make people feel good in the broadest sense."

The Scoop line features 33 pieces including chairs, dining and side tables.

Kincaid has introduced new furnishings that are certain to provide something for everyone.

Start with Escalante.

This ethnic-inspired collection of bedroom and occasional pieces offers consumers larger-scaled selections with a heavily distressed, rich umber finish and touts beautifully detailed hand-carved posts and accents.

Spicing up the market, the bedroom's focal point is the elaborately hand-carved Harbor View Poster Bed. Featuring intricate pineapple carved posts, its size is impressive but well-proportioned with a high headboard and low footboard. The ornate design style balances cultural differences with traditional values. Top this gorgeous bed with Kincaid's Kinetic Memory Foam bedding line. Memory foam has the ability to contour the entire body without loss of support, relieving overall pressure on joints.

Graded on three key points of quality, comfort and resiliency, Kincaid offers the 10-inch thick Elegance, 12-inch Luxurious and 15-inch Renaissance. Each is topped with a 100 percent cotton European duvet cover.

The top of the line Renaissance features sensational support with three layers of memory foam, including a high-density memory foam layer for responsive contouring of your body movements, high-resilience allergy-free gently-firm layer of foam, and a high-resilience allergy-free extra-firm support layer of foam.

Founded in 1946, Kincaid Furniture Co. is part of La-Z-Boy Inc.'s family of companies. For more information, visit www.kincaidfurniture.com.
