McGuire Launches Antalya Outdoor Collection | March 2011
SAN FRANCISCO (February 2011) – McGuire, world renowned for its gracefully handcrafted luxury furniture, extends the iconic indoor Antalya Collection to the outdoors. The Antalya Outdoor Collection offers 12 thoughtfully designed lounge, dining and occasional pieces and becomes the latest addition to McGuire's outdoor collections.
Originally inspired by the Mediterranean city bearing the same name, the Antalya indoor collection launched in 2000. Still a successful collection over a decade later, the design features pure, simplified forms enhanced by the geometric pattern of laced rawhide. McGuire has re-imagined many of these timeless indoor collection forms for the out-of-doors.
The Antalya Outdoor Collection is handcrafted from woven resin straps and powder-coated aluminum frames made from 80% recycled material. The designs maintain the integrity and honesty of the original open weave pattern while upholding McGuire's ecological commitment to tread as lightly as possible on the earth.
The seven lounge pieces and five dining pieces represent iconic McGuire design while expressing modern materials, functionality and comfort. The collection bridges the first generation of McGuire – open-frame rattan pole construction – with more contemporary, robust designs. The honesty of the open weave pattern makes clear the fact that it's still McGuire under the surface; precision frames are painstakingly handcrafted from wrought aluminum tubing, offering exceptional strength, durability, and weight.
This collection comes in two finishes: Havana (dark brown/bronze) and a new finish, Driftwood (a weather-worn gray). Driftwood is a versatile, warm neutral, offering a comfortable, lived-in experience to newly constructed spaces while easily fitting into existing environments.
The Antalya Outdoor Sectional is a new design that resonates with the classic sensibility of the original indoor collection. Consisting of a Corner chair, Slipper chair and Ottoman, the pieces can be combined in a myriad of ways to create personalized configurations. Whether a long, sleek sofa arrangement is desired, or a more robust modern "L" shape is needed, the finished look is refined, inviting and high on comfort.
Rounding out the lounge series are the Lounge chair, Slipper Chair, Sofa and Chaise Lounge. With a depth of 33", the Antalya Outdoor Lounge Chair features an ample seat enveloped by the woven resin framed in traditional barrel style that concludes to modestly flared arm rests; the original form that inspired this chair is among the most iconic pieces in the entire McGuire line. The Antalya Outdoor Slipper Lounge chair is accentuated by a rectangular cut-out at its back that mirrors the open weave pattern surrounding the frame. The Antalya Outdoor Sofa offers comfortable proportions at 76" wide. A trio of loose back cushions and one long seat cushion lightly rest upon the resin and aluminum frame. Relaxing with or without a cushion, the adjustable Antalya Outdoor Chaise Lounge echoes the soft bends and arches of its fellow lounge profiles by way of a gently curved head and foot. Two rear wheels allow for easy mobility.
The collection includes two distinct dining chair designs; the Dining Arm and Side chairs are symmetrical and refined, while the Tall Back Arm and Side chairs are slender and lithe. X-shaped bars and stretchers of aluminum play a supporting yet integral role underneath each. The Antalya Outdoor Pedestal Table base is at home with either style of chair. Intimately scaled at 19.5" wide by 19.5" deep, the base is accentuated by a soft curving silhouette grounded by wide strips of woven resin tightly bound around sleek aluminum poles.
Like all McGuire furnishings, the Antalya Outdoor Collection is handcrafted from choice materials of the highest quality. Each piece is constructed from 15mm wide woven resin fibers wrapped around powder-coated aluminum poles. Every profile is available in Havana, a compelling and sophisticated outdoor alternative to the classic Dark Tobacco interior finish or Driftwood finish, a warm gray tone.
All the cushions from this collection are a blend of drainable foam and Dacron. The loose cushion design affords easy cleaning and storage. Cushion toggles come with each upholstered piece and furniture clamps are provided for sectional pieces to secure more permanent configurations. All upholstered dining and lounge pieces are offered in fabrics from McGuire's Headlands collection as well as 18 new Sunbrella fabrics, 13 new Kravet fabrics, or COM. The newest additions to the McGuire textile assortment add color, depth and creativity to our existing line. All fabrics are remarkably soft and can be used indoors and out.
