Hudson's expansion in last 4 years eventuate in focus on the hospitality market. Simple yet striking designs are perfectly suitable for today's hotel and restaurant spaces; being trendsetters in life style targeting very specific client. Lucky consumers witness the highest excellence, an exhibit of "haut design", which therefore might become a preferred destination of their choice for future visits. I admire owners and operators of these functional spaces who don't compromise their clients' experience to comfort the cleaning stuff instead. The visionaries understand that need for beauty is ubiquitous in human nature and hardwired into our brains. While I'm looking at the new Hudson's pendant "Dragon 2011", Plato's words come to my mind; "Beauty ensnares hearts, captures minds, and stirs up emotional wildfires". Hudson Furniture Inc. respects the natural forms of trees and inherent grain of wood with well defined organic lines and geometric forms using traditional joinery techniques and hand rubbed oil finishes. All Hudson furniture is available in a variety of wood species such as Claro Walnut, Black Walnut, Myrtle, Jasmine, Acacia, Satinwood and Ebonized Pine. Here is the green part of the story; none of the woods they use are harvested from old growth forests. The wood slabs are domestically sourced from either salvaged trees or wind/storm damaged trees. The trees have an average life span of 250-300 years. When these trees die, they gradually do so from the crest to the roots. The farmers or the tree owners thus have to remove these trees as they might cause damage to houses, other trees or outlying areas. Hudsdon integrates various wood species into their designs to produce unique works of art. "Hudson Furniture Inc. has also recently added a line of solid walnut furniture designs by startchitects Renzo Piano, Mario Botta and Terry Dwan".
