Hand Painting

An Elevation of Design and Luxury

Handsome, gracious, conservative, and bold. Karges has created a collection of furniture to reflect your own personality and tastes. Good design and timeless lines which blend into whatever décor you choose have been created by us. Many Karges designs are inspired by fine museum pieces and the finest antiquities. Some are taken from furniture found in Europe during Edwin Karges Sr.’s travels and some from research of fine pieces through the centuries. Each of the Karges pieces are original designs created by the Karges family and by in house designers, subduing some details of historic pieces, while still holding the classic beauty of the piece.

Truex

Truex by Scott Himmel for Karges

In the early 1930’s, a young American from the middle west attended the Paris branch of The Parsons School of Design. He stayed on to become an instructor and ultimately director. His name: Van Day Truex. At the onset of World War II, Truex moved to New York and became president of Parsons, recruiting the greatest interior decorators of the day as both teachers and guest critics. From 1947-1960, New York was the world capital of the decorative arts and at it’s center was The Parsons School and Truex who believed the rooms we live in should be nothing less than a celebration of the lives we lead. It is our mission to bring back the best of this era to contemporary interiors as a special collection within Karges by Hand. The name is in honor of Truex, inspiration comes not solely from Van, but from those he inspired as his era continues to inspire us.
“There’s a difference between existing and living.”-Van Day Truex

Featured Collection

Louis XVI

Neoclassical

The structure of the Louis XVI (1774-1793) period furniture changed from the curved lines, preferred by the previously reigning French monarch, to straighter lines. Elements were fine in scale and proportion and simpler than in the Louis XV period. During this period, a great deal of money was spent on furniture design as well as on other creature comforts. Louis XVI furniture, sometimes referred to as Neoclassical, was very feminine in all aspects and many pieces were painted using light and dainty colors and designs. Idealistic motifs, especially pastoral scenes with love birds, nymphs and cherubs were used as ornamentation.
