An eye for style, a knack for technology, and a desire to create home experiences that fashion an effortless home you can’t wait to show off to your friends and family. We don’t like to brag — but when it comes to the overlap of home furnishings and home technology, Parker Gwen founders Matt Phillips and Tiffanie Rosencranz know a thing — or, two.
Like clockwork, Matt and Tiffanie sit down each and every year to pick the best-of-best styles they’ve added to their holiday wishlists. From style, design trend, functionality, quality and ease of use, they look at it all to uncover their favorite styles.
So, what made our annual Founder’s Favorites list this year? Keep reading to find out.
MATT PHILLIPS | FOUNDER, CEO, AND RESIDENT TECH GURU
Starting with thoughtfully selected character woods sourced from sustainably managed forests, fresh finishes, flatstock underpinnings and uniquely oxidized metals play up the Cuzco collection’s organic roots. But, it’s more than the wood grains that caught my eye.
The Cuzco collection gives a modern salute to mid-century modern styles, blending seamlessly into your room with clean lines, gentle curves, and natural finishings. Add warmth to your home with the Cuzco collection in Natural Yukas or go more modern with the stark black and white look found in the Cuzco collection in bleached Yukas.
LG GALLERY OLED TVs
The next big thing in home theater arrived at Parker Gwen this year, and, you could say our team took notice. LG’s new line of OLED TVs, work without a backlight to allow the colors of your favorite binge-worthy Netflix show to be brighter, more vibrant, and clearer.
But, my infatuation with these new OLED TVs doesn’t stop there. Each TV is programmed to work with Google Assistant and Alexa built-in, giving your TV the ability to turn lights on or off, set reminders, check the weather, and more.
If you’re curious to learn more about why they’ve made my top three, you can read a full blog post about them (and my favorite models) here.
Asymmetry creates a dynamic, modern aesthetic when it comes to the Trey Collection at Parker Gwen. The stunning mix of warm woods and hard iron create a unique twist on mid-century modern style, that’s a perfect fit for any room in your home.
TIFFANIE ROSENCRANZ | FOUNDER, CCO, AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT EXTRAORDINAIRE
FONTANA STONEWARE COLLECTION
With organic shapes and a vibrant color palette, the Fontana collection available at Parker Gwen helps you to create a dining table that’s perfectly suited for any family get together. Inspired by Italian gatherings, the stunning colors of this collection include Paprika, Turquoise, White, Chinza Suave, and Verde Floresta.
I’ll let you in on a little secret — the colors of this collection look stunning on their own, but they look even better when they’re paired together. Thinking about using them for your holiday hosting? Get our tips on setting the perfect table here.
