Spotlight on The Platt Collection

J. Douglas Design is quite impressed with the collections and marques we carry. We have to be impressed - or we don't carry it. It's got to be special - to be used in our Dallas interior design business. One of those exclusive brands - is the Platt Collection of fine furniture and home furnishings.

What impresses us most about The Platt Collections, besides being family owned for 60 years - is their generosity and heart for wanting to make a difference in the world!

This year, The Platt Collections introduced The Alyce Collection which incorporates the breast cancer awareness ribbon into its design. The creative idea is the brainchild of furniture designer Glenn Midnet, whose mother, Alyce, died from breast cancer in 1974 when he was very young.

The Alyse chair incorporates the signature pink cancer awareness symbol and is constructed from sturdy plantation mahogany and covered with silk with brushed nickel feet. It’s both beautiful and comfortable!

The Platt Collection’s Alyce vanity desk and mirror incorporates the breast cancer awareness ribbon as well and is also constructed of plantation mahogany with brushed nickel accents and an onyx marble inset. The mahogany mirror is trimmed in a broken silver leaf finish.

Since ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of Alyce collection pieces will go to benefit cancer research, it’s a great feeling to be able to offer our clients a stylish way to help fight breast cancer.

So this month - in honor of breast cancer awareness month - our hats are off to The Platt Collection, for their creative and heartfelt contribution to the cause.
