Seasonal Living launches Halo Collection in High Point
Michael J. Knell -- Casual Living, April 1, 2011
Seasonal Living, an innovative boutique source for high-quality indoor/outdoor furnishings and decorative accessories, will unveil its Halo collection, designed by Louis A. Lara, at the High Point Market.
This is the first collaboration between the award-winning Seasonal Living and the renowned designer. The results are bold works of functional art.
Gary Pettitt, owner and director of design for Seasonal Living, said the cutting-edge Halo collection is unlike anything already in the marketplace. It stands out from the
saturated market of woven furniture and is at home in both residential and commercial environments, both indoors and outdoors.
Challenged by Pettitt to create a truly unique new product line, Lara said, "I wish I could say I struggled and labored over the designs but it was one of those rare and pleasurable 'aha moments' where I was sketching and just hit on something that I felt would fit the bill, and that was the Halo collection."
The Halo collection is comprised of a floating woven backrest that appears to hover like a halo around a simple upholstered seat. All are supported by simple stainless steel legs complemented by a loose pillow for lumbar support that can be the same or a different color from the seat. Halo is available in a variety of unique synthetic woven fabrics and fresh colors. The first offering of the Halo collection includes a lounge chair, loveseat, sofa and various ottomans. The ottomans feature a flip-top design that allows them to be easily converted to low tables.
Season Living will display the Halo collection in in IHFC InterHall Booth IH-402 from April 2-7. Market attendees are invited to meet Lara at the Seasonal Living party on Sunday from 4-7 p.m.
