Creative Interiors is rolling out a new umbrella name for the company's ready-to-assemble home-office and entertainment collections. Called CreativeWorks, the concept represents a new direction for Creative Interiors, a division of Thomasville Furniture.
"To date, functionality has always led the way with new RTA development," said Phil Miller, vice president of Creative Interiors. "CreativeWorks challenges that by starting with a fashion-oriented approach to design development and then marrying the design to function."
The first collection introduced under the CreativeWorks banner is the Series Seven Collection, which includes 25 pieces in a complete range of home-office and complementary entertainment units.
Series Seven units feature brushed stainless-steel hardware and leg accents, framed panel doors and two cherry finishes. Pieces in the collection are priced to retail from $129 to $499 for desk/hutch combinations.
