Moderne

Cresent’s Moderne collection brings the beauty and history of Art-Deco styling to the modern home.   Moderne’s distinct styling resulted in Cresent receiving a Pinnacle Award for furniture design in 2004 for the Moderne Collection. Its combination of bowfront and breakfront case design, inverted Cavetto top mouldings, and subtly flared sabre feet combine with a rich hand rubbed finish and nickel knobs to offer discerning individuals understated opulence with a unity of design and proportion.
Constructed exclusively of Plantation-raised solid Mahogany with all the hallmarks of Cresent’s quality construction techniques, the Moderne collection offers truly heirloom-quality home furnishings.

The mahogany used in Moderne and Modern Loft is Swietenia Macrophylla, also known as "big-leaf" mahogany.  It is what has been referred to as "Genuine" mahogany since “Honduras"   mahogany (Swietenia Mahogani) was effectively logged out of commercial existence prior to 1900.  Big Leaf Mahogany is native to South America.  However, it was transplanted to Asia where it thrives in carefully managed plantations. Asian plantation mahogany is now the primary commercial source of genuine mahogany--Swietenia Macrophylla--in the world.  African mahogany is an entirely different species--Khaya Ivorensis--and is not in current Cresent product, although we did use it in the 70s-80s and you can find some of that product on Ebay and CraigsList. We do not use "Phillippine" mahogany--Meranti--in any current production.

Moderne Furniture Care 

Our Moderne collection has a unique finish that from time to time shows surface scratches on case tops, most noticeably on tops that are used frequently, such as nightstands and dressers. These scratches are only cosmetic and do not harm the overall finish or the underlying solid mahogany wood.

Surface scratches occur when items or objects with sharp edges such as jewelry, a lamp or a metal accessory make contact with the case top. These surface scratches affect the protective lacquer top-coating rather than the wood surface. Surface scratches are easily removed by using a fine grade steel wool (we recommend 0000) rubbed firmly along the grain. 
A simple, easy-to-follow video demonstration is available hereYou can purchase fine grade steel wool at most paint stores and home improvement centers. 
If you do not feel comfortable following these procedures on your own, we can recommend a professional Furniture-Medic in your area to assist you.

I purchased the Moderne 3 piece bedroom set, with chest, night stand, and bed from Macey’s. It was an Internet purchase based on reviews and a few photos. I have to say that photos do not do the Moderne collection justice. The bedroom set is much finer in person. The set is made of solid mahogany wood. All drawers are dove tailed. The bed bolts together and is very strong. Each bed slat has a center support for added strength. I am very happy to find a company that is making such quality furniture. I plan on buying a media console and I will look to Cresent for that new purchase.

Not only Furniture Medic, there is another one called Furniture Medic Solutions (http://furnituremedicsolutions.com). Are they one and the same?

I love the set. But, the 4 is because I can see tiny nail holes in the headboard. It's beautiful though and very good quality.

This furniture is superbly crafted with amazing attention to every detail. Exquisite and timeless styling. I have had my set for six years and just purchased another piece to fill out my room. Fell in love with the line at first glance and the quality and craftsmanship is why Cresant is my top choice in fine furniture manufacturering.
