DANIELLE CURTI, Rubin’s Contemporary Furniture
Curti is the sales manager and an interior designer with Rubin’s, and has been with the company almost 10 years.
A MIX OF MATERIALS
“For furnishings such as occasional pieces — end tables, coffee tables and lighting — I see a lot of mixed materials, such as concrete and wood or metal and glass. Gold and brass tones are still very popular.”
“Right now, blues are hot — especially rich navy. People are pairing blues with a rich cognac — an earthy and autumnal hue. I would say gray is finally starting to trend down. Overall, our clients are willing to take risks and are not afraid of color, even if it’s just in a chair that pops or accent pillows.”
DURABILITY IS IN STYLE
“One of our manufacturers makes dining tables with a ceramic top by coupling porcelain tile to tempered glass. The result is a tabletop that is exceptionally resistant to scratches, stains, heat and chemicals. I recommend this all of the time to clients … because it’s easy to clean and virtually indestructible.”
