New York City interior designer Kati Curtis has launched her signature furniture collection for The New Traditionalists. The collaborative program dubbed "The Syndicate" expands TNT's custom program beyond just one-of-a-kind pieces, showcasing designs that complement the standard TNT aesthetic. Kati brought her signature global style to the collection siting influences from India, Indonesia and China. Take a look below! The collection is now on view at the New York Design Center in The New Traditionalists showroom on the 7th floor. The pieces feature the high quality craftsmanship synonymous with TNT along with hardwood construction, valued old world manufacturing techniques, and innovative, hand applied artisan finishes. This collection was so special to create, and it's so surreal to finally see it in person. We hope you will join us in celebrating fine craftsmanship and beautiful design. If you're interested in working with our team on designing your dream home, you can contact us to set up your consultation and get the process started. Thank you so much for following along, and we look forward to sharing more exciting news with you in the near future. Further reading can be found here
