McGuire introduces the Barbara Barry Outdoor Collection
February 19, 2013,
The Cab lounge chair
Barry was inspired by simplicity, craftsmanship and strength of material. She brings contemporary shapes and materials to McGuire's existing outdoor collections, while McGuire "elevates the design with the handcraftsmanship for which they are known."
The Communal Extension dining table
"As always, McGuire is a great partner because of their commitment to quality," Barry said. "This collection is made from durable woven resin fiber, teak and powder-coated aluminum frames, colored in a lovely neutral ‘bark' taupe. The pieces are long-lasting, easy to care for - and extremely comfortable. We worked a lot on the ‘sit' of each piece to get just the right amount of support and comfort. It feels as good as the best indoor furniture."
The Harbor chaise
The design vocabulary is simple yet striking, articulated by the Plateau lounge pieces and Cab seating. The Plateau lounge pieces, as well as the Harbor chaise, feature low profiles, architectural shapes, solid woven resin in a basketweave pattern and loose cushions. The Cab dining and lounge chairs are curved and inviting, enveloping and dramatic with cut-out arms that create a graphic presence.
The versatile Communal Extension dining table is a go-anywhere piece that comfortably seats six without extension leaves at 91" and up to 10 fully extended at 121"; the top effortlessly glides open on aluminum channels, where the two leaves can easily store out-of-sight. This table was designed to withstand the elements, but would also look right at home in any indoor dining space. Available in Natural or Weathered Teak top; interchangeable with Driftwood or Java Bronze powder-coated aluminum base.
