Barclay Butera Home Promotes Olsen To Sales Manager -Announces HIgh Point Introductions
Furniture World Magazine
Designer Barclay Butera, ASID, who always brings to High Point Market his elegant yet accessible approach to ‘fashion for the home’, will showcase his Barclay Butera Home (BBH) line – formerly known as Butera Home Furnishings – in the context of a 1950s Parisian café feel. Located at IHFC Interhall H103, Butera will transport attendees to Café de Flore – smoky, moody, established, cozy, a bit bohemian: an invitation to find a favorite personal corner to read or write.
Transitional in both use and style, Butera’s concept of attainable and usable elegance in his own BBH designs – and for interior design generally – takes the traditional, and pushes it to its outer limit. At High Point, he re-interprets his established clean-lined, tailored, detailed pieces – and adds stunning new items – by enveloping them in beautifully rich fabrics and colors. Deep orange-cranberry with dark chocolates and caramel hues are found in high-end fabrics, such as rich red leather, croc leather and paisleys. These will be seen amidst a combination of cranberry-painted walls, chocolate brown wainscoting and crown, and dark wood floors. Barclay Butera Home is proud to present for Spring’s High Point Market:
-Avenue Armless Counter Stool: Extension of the Bel Air collection and the popular Avenue Chair. Developed from countless requests for counter stools, as ‘cocktail hour’ is revived and also to provide seating at the counter area between living and kitchen spaces. Excellent piece for ‘great rooms’. Classic Barclay Butera with X-bracket base in dark finish, classic tapered leg, squared back, and
antique brass nailhead detailing. Also comes as bar stool with arms. Shown in Brompton Brown Leather (17” x 23” x 47 1/2”).
-Garcia Chair: The beautiful richness of an old leather club chair; transitional in use and style. A Cuban mustache-type back with stamped croc leather, and
tapered legs in dark finish. Shown in Brompton Crocodile Leather (36” x 36” x 32”).
-Somerset Single-Arm Chaise: European influence with Butera’s twist of Hollywood Regency. Developed for bedroom or bathroom by those wanting to augment the luxury of their personal space. Can also be used for the living room – enjoy a pair with opposite-facing arms. Tightback, tufted chaise with double turned legs in dark finish with antique brass casters. Shown in Oyster
Belgium Linen (33” x 62” x 37”).
-Avenue Chair: For that new loft that requires transitional, very clean-lined pieces, the Avenue Chair fits the bill. Features X-bracket base, black wood
finish, and nickel nailhead. Shown in Oyster Belgium Linen (25”x35”).
Butera focuses – both personally and in business – on the home as personal haven and inviting gathering space. Having recently purchased both Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs famed retreat ‘Twin Palms’ – where he lived with Ava Gardner – and the 30-year, hillside home of Desi Arnaz, Jr., intimacy and nesting are at the forefront of his thoughts. He is redecorating these classic, mid-century homes in the Hollywood Regency style that continues to inspire him and his customized furnishings designs over the last few years. Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s and the Parisian café scene evoke images of great rooms where people gather and socialize. Barclay Butera actively engages these ideas in his approach to design.
