Pride Family Brands debuts trio of table top designs
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, August 23, 2012
Luxury outdoor furnishings manufacturer Pride Family Brands announced the company will unveil three new handcrafted cast aluminum table tops at the International Casual Furniture and Accessories Market, held Sept. 20-23 in Chicago.
The latest casual dining table tops from Pride's award-winning designers include Rosetta, Dynasty and Sea Grass.
"There is tremendous opportunity for design expression with table tops," said Steve Lowsky, president of Pride Family Brands. "This year we are introducing three completely unique cast table tops. Each exhibits the versatility of our design team and their ongoing search for innovative looks for outdoor dining."
The Rosetta cast table top is a part of Pride Family Brands' vintage collection motifs. This table top incorporates a circular motif using positive and negative intersecting elements to create an intricate open design.
To coordinate with multiple collections, the Dynasty table top embodies an intricate luxury cast design. Sculpted oversized swirls with open areas encircle the table top edges while the center features a carved-look solid design. This use of flowing and solid elements works to provide a versatile table top that coordinates with numerous seating choices.
Inspired by and for tropical settings, Sea Grass incorporates a linear bamboo motif with a twist. Rows of wrapped cane elements are grouped in blocks and then set into a perpendicular placement from the adjoining block. Each bamboo element is open to create a fresh motif that coordinates with all Resort Collections.
"Each new table top incorporates the use of solid spaces and open work within the casting design," Lowsky said. "This mixing of elements gives each table top a unique look that also clearly shows Pride's ongoing attention to detail."
All cast aluminum furnishings, including table tops, receive Pride Family Brands' signature four-stage powder-coat finishing for exterior durability as well as hand-applied antiquing. The company will introduce three new finish colorations for 2013, including Granite, Moondust, and in the standard finishes, Rouge.
