J. ROBERT SCOTT INTRODUCES OMBRÉ
Los Angeles, California – September, 2010 J. Robert Scott, Inc. the internationally known luxury furniture and textile manufacturer announces the introduction of Ombré, a ground-breaking achievement in decorative furniture finishing.
After three years of development, the company, under the leadership of President, Founder and Hall-of-Fame designer, Sally Sirkin Lewis http://www.architecturaldigest.com/architects/100/sally_lewis/sally_lewis_profile
unveils the proprietary finishing technique on selected new designs. “I was intrigued by the transparent effect of watercolors, and I wanted to translate the concept of a seamless color transition to wood veneer,” explains Ms. Lewis. The resulting finishes exhibit subtle gradients in intensity and shade from light to dark, producing a distinctive, individual effect on each veneer.
In French, the word ombré means shadow or shade. The term, ombré is commonly used in the field of textiles to refer to a color effect that is generally produced by arranging different tones of threads or fibers in the warp of a woven fabric.
J. Robert Scott’s innovative concept has never been attempted as a decorative furniture finish, and marks a milestone in the design field. The proprietary technique offered in Daybreak Ombré™, Twilight Ombré™, Mist Ombré™ and Storm Ombré™ finishes, result in one-of-a-kind examples of Furniture as Art. A Utility Patent has been filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. http://www.uspto.gov/
