Designing woman: Colour Jane confident PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael J. Knell   


It's not surprising that Jane Lockhart would make colour the central focus of her first collection of household furniture for the Canadian market. After all, she made her name hosting HGTV's Colour Confidential for six seasons while writing a book entitled Room Recipes: Cooking up Style with Colour.

The Jane by Jane Lockhart furniture collection was launched at this year's Canadian Home Furnishings Market as a collaborative effort between the Toronto-based interior designer and TV personality and two local furniture resources - upholstery specialist Statum Designs and Korson Furniture Designs, a full-line importer and exposed-wood chair manufacturer.

Lockhart says the idea was simple - "to launch a fresh, smart, consumer-driven line of furniture that will stir the marketplace." For the consumer, or the end-user in the parlance of most interior designers, the aim was to take the guesswork out of selecting furniture for almost any living space.

Drawing on her knowledge of colour theory and her more than 20 years of experience working with interior design clients, both homeowners and developers, Lockhart created what she believes is a "design-forward line of eight collections that present an infallible approach to design."

Jane by Jane Lockhart, she believes, is "on trend, but not trendy," and will allow the consumer to relax and have fun while shopping for furniture.

Jane Lockhart describes the Sutherland as a unique sofa, designed for those with discriminating taste and attention to detail. With a full bench cushion for a clean look, square tufting and contrast piping in pale gray layered on a slate blue body, this sofa is both comfortable and stunning to look at, a statement piece for any room in the home.
