Reﬁning the best lines and shapes these styles oﬀ er, such as cabriolet legs on a chair or carved posts on a credenza, Arrondissement evokes the beloved iconography of each heritage. Four ﬁnishes help balance the look of Arrondissement—Heirloom Cherry, Sunlight Anigre, Vintage Neutral and Rustic Charcoal. Heirloom Cherry is a darker, more rustic choice that features a variety of aging techniques and emphasizes the natural characteristics of the wood.

Finally, Vintage Neutral, an aged white-toned paint ﬁnish, and Rustic Charcoal, a rustic black ﬁnish with white highlights, lend their own distinctive personalities.
Finish / Wood Characteristics:
Four diverse ﬁnishes give Arrondissement a distinctive look. Heirloom Cherry is a rich, deep choice with amber highlights that utilizes a multitude of aging techniques to add to the unique, natural characteristics of the wood. Sunlight Anigre projects a lighter, more subtle appearance, reminiscent of its namesake anigre, a tropical wood with a tight grain pattern. Two painted ﬁnishes, Vintage Neutral and Rustic Charcoal, oﬀer their own special appeal. Vintage Neutral’s white paint is transformed through distressing methods into a soothing and fresh neutral, while Rustic Charcoal’s dramatic black hue is highlighted with white creating a striking look.
The richness of Arrondissement is accented by the addition of genuine brass hardware. Featuring an antiqued eﬀect, the brass knobs and pulls are set apart with hints of verdigris and tarnish to capitalize fully on Arrondissement’s timeless, European charm.
Available on select Arrondissement designs are four fabrics in understated, natural colors that explore the complexities of the many shades from sand to cream. A subtle tonal stripe lends dimension to Glace, while Chevron also makes use of texture to create visual depth. Monarque's repeating scroll pattern hints at a more formal inﬂuence. Evoking the grandeur of the garden, Botanique's large ﬂoral design is an elegant option.
