Milling Road Introduces New Exciting Designs by Designer Darryl Carter – The acclaimed designer Darryl Carter is known for bringing innovative and elegant new perspectives to today’s rooms, and for updating classical furniture styles with a modern attitude and sleek new materials. This fall at High Point Market, Baker, a leading designer and manufacturer of fine home furnishings, has collaborated with the designer to introduce fourteen new designs in an exciting line extension for the company’s well-loved Milling Road collection. Traditional form juxtaposed with a crisp, modern attitude underscores the collection, as new artful styles enhance and enliven his existing favourites. Keep us close (and your wallet closer) and find out more about this amazing new collection!
For Milling Road, Darryl Carter’s new concepts bring a refined clarity and freshness to traditional crafts and fine artisan traditions, like Chinoiserie and gilding techniques. Darryl Carter honours the classic furniture design that inspired his highly successful Milling Road collection. At the same time, he is a very practical designer creating versatile new designs that clearly acknowledge and address the pragmatic and functional requirements of 21st– century design.
The new designs allow designers and homeowners the flexibility to create environments with history and a contemporary sense of relaxation. As always with Carter’s fine-tuned designs, classical references have been deftly contrasted with a modern clean-lined attitude, such as metal frames and a linear new metal bed design. Each piece is an heirloom of the future, demonstrating classic strong bones and the facility to last a lifetime.

The designer’s restrained touch is fine-tuned to today’s changing global stylistic references and sensibilities. To each new design, he brings his signature refinement and sense of craftsmanship. His collection for Milling Road is a careful balance of the modern with the classic, and the simple with the elaborate, evocative of his personal evolution as a designer.
“This is a collection that builds upon itself and allows someone who is designing a home –whether their own or for a client–to select among the offerings knowing that they were all designed to work together, no matter the combination,” – Darryl Carter
Darryl Carter reveres traditional designs. At the same time, he’s a practical designer, in love with a versatile design that clearly acknowledges the utilitarian discipline of 21st– century design. His new pieces are sculptural and move easily into a variety of environments. The more classical forms, like the new Champlain secretary, take on a modernity based upon their finishes.
“I am a firm believer in all classical forms, modern or traditional. Classical silhouettes tend to be lasting. With updated restraint, their straight lines, clean angles, and lack of gratuitous embellishment create timeless design that will give lasting pleasure.”
