Designer Chad Dorsey loves graffiti and apparently loves to bring the heat. Dorsey’s newest delivery of STRIKE.

STRIKE an original collection of fireplaces in luxurious stone surfaces, is now available to consumers and to the trade through the Chad Dorsey Design studio. Modern simplicity in each design offers a sculptural work of art intended to create a conversation piece for any living space.

The Details

The STRIKE collection premieres with six original designs (Calistoga, Laguna, Malibu, Ojai, Sausalito, and Sea Ranch) inspired by the idyllic landscapes, regions and “anything is possible” perspective of California. Beyond utilitarian, the scales and portions of a STRIKE fireplace are modern and unexpected.

The Philosophy

“When designing the STRIKE collection, I was inspired by the different moments and experiences an explorer would have had when traveling across California, inspired by nature and the topography including mountains, desert, and sea. I wanted the first collection to reflect this diversity and a sense of subtle luxury.”

About Chad Dorsey Design

Chad Dorsey creates refined interiors that balance tailored style with the spirit of modern living. Trained as an architect, his approach to every space is characterized by a fluid relationship to the architecture where proportion, light, and scale are as essential as taste and lifestyle. His aesthetic is best described as “relaxed luxury” which is defined by a quiet palette, custom furnishings with handcrafted details, meaningful objects, and a true sense of the people who live there. He believes furnishings should be impactful without being overwhelming, and rooms should flow and transition seamlessly.

Chad’s eponymous studio is based in Dallas with an outpost in Los Angeles and offers a full-range of design services. Chad Dorsey Design works on projects across the country—a fact that Chad relishes, as travel remains a deep influence. “I think seeing new things is the most valuable inspiration, and also the piece that keeps me growing as a designer,” Chad says of the sights and sounds that stimulate his design work. For clients he is constantly revisiting ideas of luxury and focuses on creating experiences that are special and personal—whether it’s a bespoke fixture, dual kitchens for the aspiring chef, an intimate space for reading, or an intimate music room.  

Raised in Tennessee, Chad’s love of automobiles, travel and architecture began early and helped inform his passion for aesthetics. This passion lead him to pursue a degree in Architecture and a prolific career in hospitality design, where he managed and directed an impressive $2 billion portfolio, which included clubs, luxury residences, airplane interiors, Las Vegas hotels and lounges for Baccarat.

Whether designing an island vacation home in the Pacific North West, a surf shack in Dallas, or rural retreat in the California Central Valley, Chad brings subtle, relaxed luxury to every project, along with two decades of experience. Chad and his work have appeared in esteemed print and digital publications including AD Pro, Business of Home, Interiors, Luxe Interiors & Design, Traditional Home, Modern Luxury Interiors, PaperCity Magazine, Sotheby’s and Western Art & Architecture.

The Ultimate Capsule Furniture Collaboration: Josh Greene For Dowel

Interior Designer Josh Greene is carving out furniture that meets at the intersection of sophistication and California relaxation. From soft wooden pedestals, to bar stool that will making drinking even more divine to our favorite the mustard colored Presido Bench…thinking we have found a new design maverick to follow.

Read the Full Press Release If You Dare!

Family-owned luxury furniture brand, Dowel Furniture, introduces its 2020 designer capsule collection with A-List New York interior designer Josh Greene. Featuring 23 exclusive designs, the collection emulates modern sophistication with a relaxed Southern California approachability.

The Josh Greene for Dowel collection includes an array of product types, including new product categories for Dowel Furniture such as a mirror, bed and six pedestals. All designs feature a common theme: simplicity of form, quality craftsmanship, and stylish functionality.

Luxury Garage Sale - The New Way to Shop Luxury - Luxury Designer Consignment

“The collection’s framework is based on the proportions that I find myself continually drawing in furniture plans,” says Josh Greene. “Once the key pieces and proportions were established, I looked to three 20th century design heroes in terms of style precedent: Charlotte Perriand and her functional simplicity and the sensual, bold lines of Karl Springer’s 1970s furniture. Michael Taylor’s 1980s California interiors served as the benchmark for where these pieces might live.”

With Greene leading the creative direction, Dowel Furniture ensured the family factory’s extensive product manufacturing experience lead the way for high-quality workmanship and customization options. The team finalized the collection with an in-person product review in the Philippines factory.

“Josh’s creativity pushed us to develop vanguard pieces in other categories we had not yet considered under Dowel Furniture, and his unrelenting focus on simple forms with repeating geometric details allowed for a dynamic cohesion throughout the collection,” says co-founders Joanne Hallare Lee and Ray Hallare. “The result feels very purposeful, and the pieces fuse seamlessly in any project style.”

The Josh Greene for Dowel collection is made entirely of German-sourced oak and is available in six finishes or any matched paint color. Each piece is built directly in the family-owned factory in the Philippines with over 30 years of experience fabricating for some of the most well- known American furniture brands. The collection will make its trade debut at High Point Market in April 2020.
