Barclay Butera, a renowned interior designer and author, has partnered up with the award-winning casual furnishings manufacturer, Castelle. Together they will produce and market an impressive line of outdoor furnishing designs that will be created by Butera.
The Barclay Butera collection by Castelle is planned to include the manufacturer’s custom cast aluminum construction with original Butera designs. The results of the collaboration are to debut during the April 2017 High Point Market as well as the ICFA (International Casual Furnishings Association) Preview Show in July 2017 and the ICFA Market Chicago in September 2017.
“We are very excited about partnering with Barclay Butera and his entire creative team on new products and promotions,” said Steve Lowsky, CEO, Castelle. “Over the years, we have been approached regarding numerous design or brand partnering opportunities. With Barclay, we saw a true fit. In addition to his design expertise, it was his focus on high end customers and products that we saw as a natural fit for our luxury furnishings brand.”
Barclay has a high profile of designing for luxury residences, exclusive hospitality venues and even Rolls-Royce automobiles. Since 1994, his artistic flair and passion for innovative design has always been on display at his design firm and showroom at Newport Beach, California. It has allowed him to create an impressive lifestyle enterprise that is known and sought after around the world today. Success in Newport prompted Butera to establish showrooms in West Hollywood, California, and Park City, Utah.
“I wanted to design a modern way to truly bring together an indoor to outdoor design aesthetic successfully,” said Butera. “With my Southern Californian roots, Castelle allows me to combine my two favorite things, high-design and luxurious outdoor living. As with indoor, my line of outdoor furnishings with Castelle will be both elegant and approachable at the same time.”
Barclay’s spectacular interior design projects and his multiple licensing collections are frequently featured in luxury consumer publications, decor and lifestyle magazines. He has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, Extra!, CBS, ABC, Fox, Beautiful Homes & Great Estates and HGTV; and has received press coverage in the New York Times, Los Angeles, Elle Decor, Luxe, Town & Country, Robb Report magazines to name a few.
