Tui Lifestyle continues to redefine and revolutionize the furniture and design industry with bold, contemporary residence collections that are delivered and installed in 72 hours. Serving as a one-stop luxury living destination with its dynamic array of in-stock luxury furnishings and decorative accessories, Tui designers continuously work to expand their line.
The newly unveiled Metropolitan Collection is the latest addition to their current 13 complete residence collections which feature furnishings for the living room, dining room, and one bedroom. It strikes a balance by defining bold modernism while also offering luxurious comfort and beauty.
Featuring a sleek and powerful design, the Metropolitan Collection evokes the Art Deco era while simultaneously exuding a contemporary flare with the timeless design of rich leather and polished stainless steel which provide linear simplicity and modern distinction.
The living room features a black stainless leather tuxedo sofa, complemented with large black leather arm lounge chairs with square polished stainless steel frames reminiscent of 1930s streamline designs. A glass-top black marble coffee table and glass side tables topped with stiletto table lamps add the finishing touch. Finally, a glossy walnut entertainment center is the ideal space for the flat screen television, sound system and other entertainment gadgets. This room features a perfect blend of bold modernism and sleek streamline designs that capture the essence of modern style luxury living.
The flow of sleek modernism continues in the dining room where a riveted-bolt stainless steel beam glass dining table and black diamond quilted dining chairs are the centerpiece, while the kitchen is fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and kitchenware including fine china, handmade flatware, a wood block knife set, and professional grade cookware.
In the bedroom, the Zen and haven of the household, where all days begin and end the signature black tuxedo bed, available in King or Queen, rich with cushioned leather and a striking, polished stainless steel canopy frame is the showstopper. Accent pieces including the high-gloss black walnut dresser, night tables, and lamps give the room an urban chic style. Serving to highlight the room’s bold, black furniture is the luxe custom Frette linens and imported down bedding.
The Metropolitan Collection is another milestone in the Tui Lifestyle design concept. The visionary team of Jason Atkins, founder and chairman of Tui Lifestyle, and international interior designer Norant “Tui” Pranich has single-handedly revolutionized the way home furnishings are sold. Their high style, fully decorated, pre-packaged room settings, complete with luxury furniture, decorative accessories and lifestyle amenities helps developers fill empty residential spaces while also providing decorating solutions to private clients. Mr. Pranich has also designed several five-star hotels in Bangkok, Paris and New York, including the Asian-inspired Setai.
The company’s Design District showroom features a rotating selection of pieces from each available collection arranged in vignettes thus giving the space a gallery or boutique feel while design consultants are available to answer questions, offer suggestions and provide clients with the highest level of personalized attention.
