According to the National Association of Realtors, Millennials and Generation Y make up almost 40 percent of current home buyers. With younger generations encompassing such a large section of the housing market, it’s important that the interior design industry provide options that cater to that demographic. Hooker Furniture recognized this and answered the call with a newly unveiled brand, Commerce & Market. It’s an amazing assortment accent furniture pieces, and let me tell you: the entire line is GORGEOUS!

A Marked Difference

The Commerce & Market brand is set apart from Hooker Furniture’s traditional offerings. It consists of occasional pieces that highlight a variety of designs, styles and textures throughout the brand’s portfolio. Also, the furniture selections don materials that span the gamut. You’ll find cast metals, acacia solids, bone inlay, marble, painted glass, mango wood, travertine and walnut veneers, just to name a few.

The line focuses on globally-inspired home accents sourced from places like Mexico, India and Vietnam. The pieces are smaller in scale with respect to Hooker Furniture’s more traditional offerings. However, that was done by design. It helps to make the furniture more approachable for younger families and homeowners who may have smaller homes or living spaces. Nevertheless, the Commerce & Market offerings are flexible and perfect for any home layout, which aligns well with Hooker Furniture’s exceptional design dexterity across their brands.

Opulent Options

So, what can you expect from Commerce & Market? Look for consoles, credenzas, bar carts, étagères, stools, cabinets, chests, and so much more. Plus, the brand will also offer occasional tables that will include martini tables and desks, end tables, nesting and cocktail tables. It’s an extra bonus, in my opinion, that this line has a selection of practically anything my clients could ask for in home accents.

Within the versatility of the line exists a cohesive, sophisticated neutral palette, and I LOVE it! I’m a huge fan of neutrals because they allow you to do so much with the aesthetic of a space. And, neutrals provide consistency and freedom to coordinate virtually any combination or pops of color. The Commerce & Market brand maintains a neutral constant that refuses to be stagnant or feel repetitive in its presentation. It does so by incorporating intricate detailing in each piece, and the final result is nothing short of stunning! There’s such a depth of character throughout all of the offerings, and my mind bursts with excitement thinking about incorporating combinations of furniture in future projects.

Standout Selections

I got a chance to see several pieces of the Commerce & Market debut line at High Point Market in June. My jaw dropped when I saw the Jaiden Three-Door Credenza. With three incredibly unique hand-placed (!!) bone inlay patterns on the front, the vibrant personality of this piece made me fall in love at first sight. As with all of Hooker Furniture’s offerings, the intricate patterns make it such a statement piece that would be perfect in any home.

The Carved Stumped Side Table was another highlight for me. Its resin-cast design evokes a sense of tradition and history. The hand-painted tribal print honors a history and tradition of long ago. But, it remains timelessly preserved in this gorgeous table. This is the elegance Hooker Furniture always presents, and I appreciate all they provide future homeowners in this new line.

These are just TWO of the many exciting accent offerings of the new Commerce & Market line from Hooker Furniture. With over 70 new pieces to choose from, I will enjoy selecting home accent pieces for my upcoming design projects. I know you will, too!
