ICFA Preview Show Highlights
  • Holly Hunt Table
    Is wind an issue for your outdoor project? We found this dining table with a solid marble top in the Holly Hunt showroom. It weighs around 200 pounds.
  • Holly Hunt Pillows
    Talk about plush: These luxe pillows are made of velvet, part of the Holly Hunt Great Outdoor fabric collection.
  • Anacara Sofa
    Here’s a top secret piece: An all-upholstered outdoor sofa at Anacara—a first. Look out for more on it at the September Casual Market.
  • Castelle - Barclay Bustera
    The new Barclay Butera Collection was front and center at Castelle.
  • Castelle Dual Finish
    Castelle introduced interesting dual finishes on many of its new collections, including Legend, Sunrise, Sonesta and Hermosa.
  • North Cape Taylor
    The handsome, new Taylor Collection by Libby Langdon for NorthCape looks more like a living room.
  • Brown Jordan Softscape
    The new Softscape Collection for Brown Jordan. “The reason for it is that we wanted a deeper seat and higher backs,” says Steve Elton, chief brand curator, Brown Jordan. “This sectional group, if it were a BMW, it would be a 3 Series concept. This is a great price point for us.”
  • Brown Jordan - Detail
    The new Softscape Collection for Brown Jordan sports exclusive straps by Sunbrella. It’s a design element that comes in many different colors.
  • Brown Jordan Ottone
    Brown Jordan Chief Brand Curator Steve Elton noted the trend of fixtures moving from silver and pewter to bronze and gold. So he developed this new “Ottone” finish, which means “bronze” in Italian. It’s shown on the Parkway Curvilinear sectional.
  • Gensun Modano
    With the new Modano outdoor kitchen from Gensun, consumers can customize the look with panels that come in a variety of finishes and multiple countertop options.
  • Gloster Bar Cart
    Leave it to Gloster to come up with this crackerjack bar cart with oversized teak wheels and stainless steel accents.
  • Gloster Atmosphere
    Gloster’s new Atmosphere Collection by Danish industrial designer Cecilie Manz has a light and airy feel. The dining table is two inches lower than standard to promote intimate conversation.
  • Century Culpepper
    For the first time, Century Furniture is introducing a fully upholstered outdoor sofa, Culpepper, based on an indoor sofa of the same style.
  • Tropitone Mix
    Aptly named, the new Mix collection from Tropitone pairs aluminum frames with woven panels in three available colors.
  • Anacara Scottsdale
    The new Scottsdale collection by David Williams for Anacara. “Everybody loves the big, bulky nature of the Scottsdale,” says Deborah Dill, vice president, Anacara. It has a soft shell weave, and an ash finish.
 
New collections, new finishes, new shapes and sizes. We took so many pictures; we couldn’t squeeze them in the pages of the August issue. So here’s a snapshot of all that we experienced at the ICFA Preview Show in Chicago.
