Traditions Made Modern® Revealed at High Point


In partnership with four home décor licensees: Hickory Chair (case goods and upholstered furniture), Maitland Smith (decorative accessories), Jaipur Living (hand knotted rugs) and Wildwood Lamps, MNM Licensing introduced a coordinated home décor collection that celebrates the mixing and melding of cultural traditions and international styles.

These new collections feature respectful adaptations of traditional and ethnographic materials distilled into modern pieces imbued with history and place. Hickory Chair’s 20-piece collection presents a mix of streamlined interpretations of the European furniture brought to Santa Fe by some of its illustrious citizens and the Southwest’s unique version of the early 20th century Arts and Crafts tradition. Adapting African Kuba cloth designs, Jaipur Living delivered a stunning group of hand knotted carpets rich in texture and softly modern in palette and pattern. Inspiration for Wildwood’s assortment of lamps bridged world’s both near and far – rustic Americana furniture, Native American jewelry, Turkish ceramics, and indigo dyed Japanese coats.

Considered together, the collection embodies the essence of Traditions Made Modern®: designed for the consumer that appreciates an eclectic and layered look -- one reflecting the way people live today, and how they bring together pieces of diverse origin and character in their own homes to achieve a fresh and contemporary style

Traditions Made Modern® takes inspiration from the collections at the Museum of International Folk Art, Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and New Mexico History Museum. Proceeds from the sales of these collections help support exhibitions, education and acquisitions at these museums and the New Mexico Museum of Art.
