Barclay Butera opens fourth showroom in his mother’s former space

Designer credits mother for fostering interior design passion

Barclay ButeraCORONA DEL MAR, Calif. – For interior decorator, designer and retailer Barclay Butera, his recently opened showroom is set apart from his other three locations.

“I have always been enamored with Corona Del Mar,” Butera told Posh. “This location holds a special place in my heart as it was my mother’s shop and showroom years ago.”

He credits his mother with fostering his passion for interior design from an early age. His mother, an interior designer and decorator, recruited him to work on designing homes for private clients worldwide.

“[Corona Del Mar] is a unique community with a very discerning clientele, but very much a neighborhood where residents and tourists support local business,” Butera said. “I am excited to finally be on this side of The Bay.”

It was more than 21 years ago that Butera opened his flagship showroom/store in Newport Beach. Since then, he has expanded with locations in Park City, Utah and West Hollywood.

The new site, situated where his mother’s business was once based, spans 1,300 square feet and has been designed to be reminiscent of [Butera’s] other locations, “but with a twist,” he said. “This new location in particular is going to focus on retail and gift while also still offering first-class design services."

Luxury linens and home accents play a leading role in the business.

“I am a textile guy. I am most well-known for my mixing of pattern on pattern, and have my own fabric collection along with my tremendously successful line with Kravet, including outdoor fabrics,” he said. “And my collection of bedding and pillows with Eastern Accents is so extensive right now, there is something for everyone. I can honestly say textiles, fabrics, my rugs with Nourison and my pillow collections represent the signature of my brand.”

Most recently, Butera is collaborating with Castelle Luxury on their first collection set to debut at the April High Point Market.
