The Charrette Collection is the offspring from the marriage between HBF and Margaret McCurry. The two came together with one mission in mind: create fluid, open, office furniture that is not only comfortable but welcoming; by looking to the past for design influence and incorporating the present all while maintaining an eye on the future.
Inspiration for the furniture came from a small antique desk. While the look of the desk was classically beautiful, the functionality was lacking the needs of the 20th century. On the contrary, the trend toward mobile office furniture lacks the ability to personalize the work space. A mid-way point was needed.
The results are a desk with cartonnier, a secretaire that reminisces of rolled-top desk and works to hold and hide a computer, an escritorei for filing and eleven side and occasional tables.
