First Look: Darryl Carter’s New Furniture Collection

Well-known local interior designer Darryl Carter has made his name by taking traditional designs and adding modern twists. His new line of furniture, which he celebrated Wednesday night at a launch party in Fairfax, is no exception.

The collection, called Darryl Carter for Thomasville, has a timeless feel. One of Carter’s favorite techniques is to upholster pieces with the back side of fabric so the print is visible but more subtle. What struck me most was the collection’s versatility. If you look at his catalog after eyeing the pieces in the store, it can be hard to recognize some items. That’s because many of them can be tailored to any style, and fit seamlessly into a country-style living room or modern loft.

 As an unhappy lawyer, Carter began designing homes as a creative outlet. When his own house landed on the cover of Metropolitan Home in 1997, he abandoned law and hung out a design shingle. Carter’s interiors have been published in a score of magazines, including Elle Decor, O at Home, and Southern Accents.
