Welcome to a new experience in high style, high value furnishings! Caracole is a portfolio of unique items that work in harmony to furnish your entire house. Every piece represents high design and independent thinking, with more than fifty finishes and materials: exotic woods, mixed elements and hand-applied finishes. Each piece stands alone...and speaks for itself. For example, a closed storage item might say "bedroom dresser" to you while serving as a "dining room sideboard" for your neighbor. It's OK! So, as you browse through the three distinct and carefully edited portfolios; throw the rules out the window and allow your subliminal preferences and unconditioned reflexes to make the call. And above all, have fun utilizing Caracole's fresh originality to make your home...YOUR home. - Jeff Young, CEO; Melanie Dunn, Creative Director; Kristine Capra, Director of Upholstery Merchandising

CLASSIC CONTEMPORARY

When Caracole goes contemporary, it goes a little crazy. But in a good way! It’s a little bit retro, a little bit French, a little bit Hollywood… and totally glamorous! Welcome to a lifestyle that’s eclectic and elegant, with a look that’s stunningly refined (notice the classic touches and details) and – thanks to all those curves – decidedly feminine.

For instance, the Loop-De-Lu table is very dimensional – almost sculptural – with shapely legs and see-through carvings. It’s art for the dining room! Pull up a pair of Barrel Of Fun chairs and you’ll sit down in perfect style. Dressed to a T is a great storage solution for beautiful table linens, and the shimmering mood ring mirror lets you accessorize your view. Dinner at eight, reservations for two. Beautiful!

A conversation piece? Yes. Pillow talk? Absolutely! The Star Light, Star Bright bed combines a trellis design with soft, champagne velvet to complement your favorite colors. Glam it up with a nicely-scaled table that features a creamy parchment front against a rosewood frame. Open the drawer and there’s a jewelry tray for the earrings you almost forgot to take off. And since every Beauty Queen needs her chair, this one has an hourglass figure and hips that swivel.

Classic Contemporary transcends style and era in an expertly edited presentation And… cut! It’s a Wrap! And while it’s perfect as closed storage for the bedroom, its curved metal front and classic details make it ideal for a starring role in the hall or living room. And speaking of versatility, there’s nothing like the comfort of Tickle My Fancy for edgy seating in any space.

NEW TRADITIONAL

PARDON

MY FRENCH

BUT I BELIEVE WE JUST MET Traditional designs are typically thought of as formal furniture. Au contraire! New Traditional adds a delicious dimension that’s warm and relaxed. In this category, Caracole takes familiar forms and gives them a comfortable new attitude. These are pieces that put the past in a new context, with fabulous results! Consider Pardon my French: a graciously scaled chest of drawers that’s très versatile. It’s at home in the bedroom, hallway or as an eclectic end table for a spectacular sofa. It also functions brilliantly as a bar, since the inset marble top doesn’t mind being over served. In New Traditional, pristine is out, personality is in. Viva la révolution!

Imagine waking up On Cloud Nine, rested and refreshed. This space-thrifty sleigh bed includes a tailored headboard in metallic copper leather. The fluted side rails beg to be seen rather than skirted. Feeling lonely? By My Side is the ultimate companion piece. Place it beside a sofa, near the bed, next to the bathtub. The shape is totally traditional. But its versatility makes it fresh and new. 14 l www.caracolehome.com


For those who cherish tradition but don’t want their parents’ hand-me-downs.

Think SoHo, Tribecca or San Francisco. Or your home, wherever it may be. Caracole’s Naturally Casual collection offers a lighter feel that moves easily from upscale urban to coastal casual. And along the way, it rewards your design confidence with a breezy elegance that’s fresh and fashion forward. Now, think BIG. More is More, with its stand-alone stature, makes an impressive style statement. Sure, it could own the room. But it’s also quite content to mix and mingle with other pieces of smaller scale. Oodles of open and closed storage now share a beautiful, rustic finish in a sage green tint. The casual ambiance comes naturally, thanks to a Napa Valley practicality that says bookcase, hutch, china or display case.

Naturally Casual appeals to those attracted to the beauty of the great outdoors While the look here is light, the scale is heavier… and so is the durability. Naturally Casual pays homage to Ironwood – a wood so rugged it once covered ship decks. Here, cracks and imperfections are cherished and celebrated, reflecting a natural honesty that makes the finish warm and rich. Table It, and enjoy an endless feast of time-honored craftsmanship! Then, Sit Tight and enjoy the graceful, open elegance of seating that’s perfect for any occasion. It may once have been the stately wooden gate to a Moroccan palace. Today, Large As Life brings that hand-carved inspiration to the headboard of your bed. The wood finish is deeper and darker, setting a tone that contrasts beautifully with other pieces in the room. For closed storage, we suggest Bedrock, with its oil-bronzed hardware finish. Perfect for your modern, Stone Age family!

UPHOLSTERY Caracole upholstery is the softness in the home, in shapes and silhouettes that reflect the very latest fashion trends. It is upholstery that comes fully to life when surrounded by your favorite tables, storage and display furnishings. Here, the style category is whatever you want it to be. Which gives you the freedom to make choices based simply on whatever brings a smile to your face and a quickness to your pulse! Say it out loud: Ooh La La! This two-piece sectional is a statement: spectacular in its scale, style and sheer presence. A wave motion sweeps across the back in a rich, velvety merlot. The carved legs are painted matte silver to match the metal and glass sparkle of nearby tables and mirrors. And the pillows! Olive and gold tones…leafy prints…plus metallic snakeskin filament yarns. Comfortably completing a look that is dressy, dreamy…and just a tiny bit dramatic.

Sofas, settees and chairs, oh my! Caracole upholstery combines fine quality, great fabrics – and lots of luxury – in pieces that blend beautifully in your home. And since each piece honors what’s going on in Caracole’s three style categories, you can mix and match to your heart’s delight. Look closely and you’ll see trends and details inspired by a little reality show called “life.” Contemporary fashion. Jewelry. Antiques and automobiles. Caracole upholstery is your world, expressed fabric-on-frame, creating a soft sculpture for all to enjoy. Tuft Luck is an excellent example of your good fortune. Inspired by an antique settee, it’s an upholstery accent piece that’s traditional – all the way from its button tufting to its cabriole legs. Use it to finish a room. Or put a pair in the foyer for an elegant entrance. Add a few pillows from a flea market and you’re done. Well done!

A Q& The word “eclectic” makes some people uneasy. Yet Caracole is wonderfully eclectic—some might even say eccentric—without being intimidating. In fact, it’s a collection that’s highly enjoyable and rewarding to work with. We asked Jeff Young, CEO of Schnadig International, to share his thoughts on what makes Caracole so special and how it came to life…

Q: WHAT INSPIRED THE CARACOLE PORTFOLIO? A: Caracole came out of an opportunity to create a product that was rich in both style and value. One contributing factor was the recession, which helped make budget-conscious spending fashionable again. We knew the time was right for a collection like Caracole with its easily affordable price points.

Q: WHAT HAS EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE CARACOLE PROJECT? A: It was thrilling for our team to have total access to the resources available from our parent company – Markor – and to engage those resources in a fresh, new way. A true world class manufacturer, replete with unprecedented resources and experience, our parent company afforded our US team a rare opportunity to shatter existing paradigms within this industry.

Q: WHAT MAKES CARACOLE SO EASY FOR CONSUMERS TO EMBRACE? A: Visually, Caracole is very straightforward. The three categories are generic rather than rigidly defined, so consumers can make their own interpretations and choices based on what they see and like. Constraints like “formal” and “casual” don’t apply, since there’s often a bit of both in each piece. So consumers have a lot of freedom, which makes shopping and designing more fun. Even the names of the pieces are fun!

Q: WHAT WILL CONSUMERS AND DESIGNERS FIND MOST APPEALING? A: First, they will continue to discover that our prices are extremely attractive. Caracole will give both designers and consumers products that will allow them to stretch their home furnishings budget without compromising their creative intensity. Secondly, once a consumer receives a basic overview of Caracole from their designer or qualified store sales associate, they’ll be surprised how easy it is to mix the three general portfolios to create a very avant-garde look in their home. And finally, I think Caracole may actually be the first portfolio of designs in our industry that is truly capable of finding its way into multiple environments across a wide range of geographic locations. Every manufacturer likes to tout their collection as being perfect for use in multiple environments, but how many actually are? Caracole’s hidden genius lies in its excellent editing, individuality of designs, non-wood material applications and wide assortment of hand-hewn finishes. This combination provides a multitude of choices for a multitude of interior environments.

Q: DESCRIBE THE DEPTH AND BREADTH OF THE CARACOLE PORTFOLIO. A: In terms of breadth – and by anyone’s characterization – Caracole represents an unusually broad portfolio, particularly for a start-up brand. As for depth, since the migration of furniture manufacturing to Asia, larger companies have been rewarded for nurturing manufacturing redundancy. This “over-utilization” of a few key design elements, while favorable for manufacturers, has spun a “surplus” of highly commercial, homogenized designs. I think this rush to off-shore manufacturing has left the marketplace void of creativity and imagination. Caracole’s introduction of a healthy assortment of today’s most popular, designeroriented, “natural elemental materials” – coupled with a full array of labor-intensive, hand-hewn woodworking techniques – makes the breadth and depth of the line very compelling! Q: HAVE TO ASK: WHAT DOES “CARACOLE” MEAN? A: The word basically refers to a slow, turning movement. In dressage, it’s a graceful half turn executed by a horse and rider. It also refers to a spiral shell or winding staircase. To us, Caracole means “a beautiful turn in a new direction” for our industry at large. To our customers, we hope it makes the process of fulfilling their home furnishing dreams easier, more affordable and – most of all – fun! 26 l www.caracolehome.com
