Alexa Hampton may have introduced her first furniture collection for Hickory Chair Furniture this spring, but she's really carrying on a family tradition. The collaboration between the 34-year-old daughter of decorating legend Mark Hampton and the American furniture company began when a teenaged (but already working) Alexa tagged along when her father visited the showroom to put the finishing touches on his famed designs for the company.
After her father's death in 1998, she took over his business and continued working on the furniture collection, adding her own designs to the line as need arose. In 2003, Hickory Chair asked Alexa to create her own line of furniture for the company. Now, two years later, the results are in.
