Bring the Romance and Rustic Charm of Corsica Home

Corsica is a storied Mediterranean Island. Owned by France today, it has a heritage that includes Italian, Greek, and many other European influences. And so it inspired Hooker Furniture to create a collection based not only on its romantic past, but its very contemporary casual lifestyle. Here, enjoy a pictorial tour of Corsica, which inspired Hooker Furniture’s delightful Corsica Collection for today’s casual lifestyle.

Romantic, Rustic Corsica is Melting Pot of Style, Culture

The waters of the Mediterranean have brought many different cultures to the island of Corsica, beginning with the Greeks, centuries ago. It is what makes this rugged island, primarily mountainous, so intriguing for visitors today. Corsica belongs to France, but its history, like the languages spoken and its food heritage, has a definite Italian imprint from the occupation by Genoa once upon a time.

Visit its markets, its farm inns, and even its most elegant restaurants and discover a unique cuisine and way of life in my latest blog for Hooker Furniture Corporation.
