LOS ANGELES, CA (April 2009) – This Spring, national lifestyle designer Barclay Butera is optimistic and wants to share that outlook. There’s been a shift: months ago, people began to nest because they had to, and he was attuned to that with his soothing colors in Fall. Now, he believes, people are enjoying nesting voluntarily, realizing how nice it is to nurture one’s home environment and create a haven, and also hearken to an earlier time, and a more primary color scheme. To that end, Barclay Butera Home launches the Americana-style “Harbor Collection” at High Point International Market (April 25-30), Interhall #IH211. Additionally, Butera will showcase new pieces from his continued association with the Hearst Castle Collection®, reflected in upholstery and pillows.
The color palette of the “Harbor Collection” includes navy and indigo blues, ocean and sky blues, crimson reds, deep gold, wheat and brown. The textiles feature a variety of striped patterns—many of a nautical ilk—plaids, and of course textured solids.
For this Spring, Barclay Butera Home is proud to present all new for High Point Market:
Taylor Wing Love Seat – Clean-lined club chair feel, inspired by BBH popular Taylor chair, has elegant details such as a traditional English arm, turned legs and casters with slight wing-chair feel, while meeting an increased demand, in this case, for slipcovered furniture. Comes standard upholstered with bench cushion. Shown in Harbor Collection’s Decking Stripe Indigo/Cadet. (72”w x 32”d x 32”h)
Lido Host Chair – Host chair features tight seat and tailored legs. Butera plays with classic designs and modern elements, adds slight wing detail and slight flair of arm. Standard with bracket base and nailhead detail. Shown in Harbor Collection’s casual Mazarin Nautica. (32”w x 31”d x 34”h)
Lucia Chair—Barclay Butera for Hearst Castle Collection® - Butera and Hearst Castle Collection® are selectively adding to the line with this occasional chair, with slightly curved back and flared arm, patterned after one in the Casa Grande at San Simeon. The rooms in Casa Grande were more modern in style, reflecting the changing interior design styles of the times up through the luxurious Hollywood design of the 1940s. Upholstery exhibits taste of 1940s era, and features the modern detailing of Butera’s style. Standard with tufted detail, nailhead, turned leg and casters. Shown in Harbor Collection’s Piazza Wheat. (34”w x 38”d x 39”h)
Harbor Sofa -- Loose back sofa with rolled arm and carved bun feet. Large nailhead applied around inside back and around base of sofa; and small nailhead applied on arm posts. Shown in Harbor Collection’s Glynn Linen Crimson Red. (90”w 40”d x 39”h)
Butera’s creative collaboration with Kravet is rolling out. His selection of original designs for Tufts by Kravet Carpet—richly textured and hand-tufted—are out and available now. And his four-book, 300 SKU fabric collection for Kravet Collections will be launching June 2009, creatively merchandised in four lifestyle themes ala Butera’s Living in Style coffee table book (Assouline): Beach, City, Mountain, and Town & Country.
