Homecrest rediscovers roots
Jennifer Marks -- Casual Living, July 14, 2006
A steel grouping inspired by iconic Homecrest sculptural wire designs popularized in the 1960s, Circa60 features thin, graceful lines, dynamic proportions and light forms. The collection was designed for homeowners seeking a vintage-inspired look with a fresh, modern aesthetic.
"Circa60 is a breakthrough collection that clearly demonstrates Homecrest's commitment to elevating the design element in today's outdoor furniture industry," said John Sundet, Homecrest president and CEO. This design-driven new collection reproduces the nostalgic essence of our classic collections and updates them with chic, trend-forward flair."
The Circa60 collection includes a cafe chair, barstools with or without backs, and coordinating cafe tables and bar tables available in 30-inch and 36-inch diameters. The sleek, willowy frames are constructed of steel tubing that is lightweight, durable and easy to maintain. A stackable chair and stool design enables convenient storage.
The stool seat and back panels are contoured for comfort, and feature a laser cut "polka dot" pattern that resembles vintage fabrics and circular styles, which are once again fashionable. A removable thin seat pad with fast-drying, mildew-resistant Dacron filling is an available option for added comfort. The seat pads can be customized from a selection of more than 100 fabric options. Available in a choice of 11 frame finishes, the collection also can be custom-designed with a combination of up to three different finishes used on the frame, seat panel and back panel for added panache.
