Last week, when driving through the back roads of Manoa, I started to daydream about living in one of those old-style Victorian-looking houses. I’ve always liked old houses. So much history and so much character. But it’s just a dream.
The reality (besides not EVER being able to afford a home in Manoa) is that although I’m drawn to the look of an older home, I prefer the amenities of a newer one. Brand new plumbing, new fixtures, solid no-leak roof, and so on. I love the look of old, but the function of new.
So when the Brownstone Village dining and bedroom collection by Legacy Classic arrived at HomeWorld, I was excited to see it in person.
The look is weathered as if it was aged in a farmhouse far, far away. It brings images of the past, a treasure waiting to be discovered. Everything about its design says heirloom from its charming metal hardware to its distressed aged patina.
But this is no barn-yard, second-hand find. The Brownstone Village is thoughtfully designed for your comfort. The grand size panel bed is smartly designed with 2 base storage drawers lined with cedar to safely stow extra blankets and clothing. The dresser features deep drawers and cedar panels for garment protection. The nightstands have built-in outlets for easy access to recharge your mobile devices overnight.
The Brownstone Kitchen Island has ample open and closed storage for dishes, as well as generous removable wine rack for up to 16 bottles. A drop-leaf table top can be extended for extra seating if needed. And a side-mounted towel bar holds keeps your dishtowel within reach.
Throughout the collection, you’ll appreciate the fine attention to details such as the crafted dovetail drawer joints and full extension metal-on-metal drawer guides for quality assurance.
Open the double doors of the understated Brownstone Pantry to a chef’s dream cabinet. Generous open and closed storage for recipe books, bulk pantry items, spices, and more, plus 2 built-in cubbies, a shelf for dry-erase pens, a dry-erase board, and mini bulletin board turn this cabinet into organization central.
The dining table with extension leaf seats 6 to 8 comfortably, making entertaining easy. The exposed wood cross bars on the dining chairs are classic details that makes this collection a statement piece.
