NEW YORK - Designer Libby Langdon unveiled her first four outdoor collections for NorthCape at last week's ICFA Preview Show. The leading outdoor manufacturer recognized Langdon as a partner who would bring her signature fresh style to their line.

“Libby brings a completely new design aesthetic to our current product offerings and we wanted to give her the freedom to bring her vision to life," said Tom Murray, president of NorthCape. "She was very specific about what she wanted to create. It was fascinating to see how she mixed them in her designs.”

Libby spent over two days in the NorthCape Chicago showroom taking dealers through her complete collections: The Dunemere, Mooring, North Haven and Ridgewood each including deep seating, dining and chat groups as well as cocktail and side tables and fire tables.

“I’m seeing people wanting to create complete outdoor living spaces with all of the creature comforts that we use in indoor decor; it’s truly blurring the lines of interior design and exterior design,” said Langdon.

“Libby has brought the look of interior furniture to outdoor design, which is totally on-trend and what our market has needed,” said Erik Mueller, president of Watsons in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Mixing materials is another way that Langdon seamlessly transitions from indoor to outdoor designs, helping buyers create stylish combinations. They responded positively to the reasonable price points and the quality of Langdon’s fresh looks.

"I've bought from NorthCape for years," said senior buyer for Petitti Garden Centers, Martha Rancourt. "With the Libby Langdon collections, they've added a whole new style while still keeping the price points in line with what we've come to expect. Our customers are focused on style, comfort and cost, and Libby's collections tap into what we see people looking for in outdoor living."

Libby Langdon Outdoor for NorthCape will launch at the Las Vegas Las Vegas Market Summer 2016.
