thomas bina collection at highpoint

Last week at Highpoint we were thrilled to meet the designer and founder of Bina Furniture, Thomas Bina (pictured in the middle of Christopher Joyce and Suzanne Saul). Thomas Bina is a trendsetter in environmentally conscsious design. His eclectic and versatile furniture line is informed by a unique set of influences, from mid-century modern to old world craftsmanship.

The furniture combines reclaimed demolition hardwoods with steel and black walnut. Each piece is unique, with a patina that speaks of days gone by, with designs of today. Free-floating slabs as well as dovetail and mortise-and-tenon exposed joinery are some of the unique detailing features.

“We’re creating something that will stand the test of time, something that will have lasting value.” – Thomas Bina

dwellstudio furniture coming to attica

This week we were thrilled to meet DwellStudio founder Christiane Lemieux as we viewed her exciting new furniture collection at Highpoint. We started carrying DwellStudio's contemporary bed linens about ten years ago, and always loved Christiane's contemporary design sensibilities.

No longer does decorating a home consist of buying complete collections; the idea now is to bring home individual pieces that you love, and add tones, oatterns, layers and textures to your interior. DwellStudio ties into this with their mid-century inspired designs.

Check in with Attica in the coming months as we launch DwellStudio furniture!

landscape your bedroom

Like surveying a serene outdoor vista, the Landscape bed provides a serene visual oasis to your bedroom. The horizontal lines in the leather or wooden headboard and in the stainless steel trim on the bed base reinforce thoughts of repose.
Designed and crafted in Canada, the Landscape collection is destined to be another classic. Choose from a wide variety of leather (pearl, brown or black) and eighteen stain colour options. Available in queen or king. Accent your bed with other pieces from the Landscape collection: select from two nightstands, three chests and two dressers.
