Brand Spotlight on Metropolitan Home

Contemporary design fans will have fond memories of Metropolitan Home magazine, a glossy periodical that focused on high-end modern design and interiors. Sadly it ceased publication in 2009, but the décor it highlighted has made a jump from the pages of its past into today’s real life.


Developed by Lacquer Craft USA and Hearst Brand Development, the Metropolitan Home Collection line of furniture has a design aesthetic that is as sleek and sophisticated as the magazine that shared its name – and it’s available at Art Van Furniture!


“The combination of luxurious materials, expert craftsmanship and sleek shapes reflect Metropolitan Home’s emphasis on refined, contemporary design,” said Glen Ellen Brown, vice president of brand development at Hearst, in Furniture Today magazine. “[The] collections can stand on their own or mix beautifully with other pieces to pull together a truly chic room.”


The line includes the bedroom, dining room, occasional, home entertainment and upholstery pieces spread over two contemporary collections: Tocara and Denali.

Pieces in the Tocara Collection’s Bedroom Group are made with white oak in a dark espresso finish. In addition to bronzed hardware, the bedroom furnishings include functional details such as hidden shelving, adjustable headboard lighting and concealed power units in nightstands. The Tocara Dining Collection has the same finish, with details that include hidden panels, touch lighting, and a pull out wine rack and work surface. The Tocara line also includes a TV Console and Pier with removable leather baskets.

The Denali Collection’s Bedroom Group features clean lines and contemporary styling. In a Burnt Sienna finish, features include cedar-lined drawer bottom and a hidden power strip. The Denali Dining Collection features the same rich finish, with three chair options that allow you to personalize your room. Occasional pieces also available include an End Table and Cocktail Table.


“Product like this is only in a lot of high-end contemporary stores around the country,” Lacquer Craft USA President Randy Chrisley told Furniture Today magazine. “It is a phenomenal value based on what is in the market.”


Style and affordability – it’s no wonder you’ll find it at Art Van.
