For immediate release
When the Spring 2017 High Point Furniture Market opens, the vision and creativity of celebrity designer and author, Barclay Butera, will be on full display in the Castelle showroom, IHFC Main – 101. With the debut of the Barclay Butera Outdoor Collection for Castelle, the much anticipated collaboration of the two design icons will captivate market buyers with Castelle’s expertise in the creation of luxury outdoor furnishings and Butera’s fresh and in-demand design perspective.
“Throughout the design and production process, partnering with Barclay and his team has proven to be a very creative and positive experience for CASTELLE,” said Derek Ritzel, President and CEO, CASTELLE. “We are looking forward to this next step with the market debut. The final designs definitely present the quality and luxury of CASTELLE and the unique design aesthetic of Barclay. We see with this collection an opportunity to offer current and prospective retail customers and design professionals something they will not find from any other source.”
The collaboration with Butera in the Barclay Butera Outdoor Collection for Castelle includes a transitional design of cast elements, curving arms and decorative finials. A deep seating collection including a sofa, loveseat, lounge chair, ottoman and coordinating tables will be on display within Castelle’s High Point showroom as well as cushion and sling dining. The designer’s signature navy and white color palette will provide a casually regal statement in textiles and the crisp white finishing to the durable aluminum furniture.
“Creating this spectacular collection of outdoor furniture with Castelle has been a fantastic experience,” said Barclay Butera. “When I first approached the design process, I was inspired by this magnificent geometric ceiling carving I saw in an English manor years ago. I have incorporated this pattern into carpets, wallpapers and now the fretwork for outdoor furniture; I think it translates beautifully! And, of course, clean navy and crisp white are always in fashion. This design is so versatile it will work in a Central Park penthouse as well as a chic beach home on Newport Harbor and everywhere in between.”
The official launch event during the April High Point Market will occur in the Castelle Showroom on Sunday, April 23rd from 12 noon until 2p. “Brunch and Bellini’s with Barclay Butera” will include comments from Butera as well as tours of the showroom.
