We are OBSESSING over the Barclay Butera furniture and home decor we just added to our site. Why? With a true reverence for historic design achievements and established forms, Barclay Butera has created a fresh and sophisticated furniture collection that puts an innovative twist on classic luxury to create a new traditional style. You’ll see influences ranging from Coastal Beach to Hollywood Regency as each piece takes timeless design concepts and makes them a bit more current and relevant for even the most discerning of interior design devotees. Check out the video below and continue to read more about why we love these Barclay Butera beauties!
Our new Barclay Butera collection reflects the relaxed yet sophisticated lifestyle of the coast. You’ll find two primary wood tones in the product assortment, a light bright elm and a more coastal whitewashed finish. The upholstery and decor palette is undoubtedly a dichotomy of blues and whites (the blue striped chair below is Barclay’s signature piece!). If you’re trying to replicate this look in your own home, mix together bold patterns with natural materials. Patterns you’ll find in this collection include: geometrics, balanced stripes, bamboo lattice, animal prints, and some contemporary style chinoiserie.

Coastal Beach Beauties
With roots in Newport Beach, CA, one distinct influence that can be seen in Barclay Butera designs is that of coastal living. Striking that perfect balance between luxury and ease, Butera’s timeless furnishings masterfully capture the relaxed sophistication of seaside style.

Hollywood Regency Resplendence
Moving inland from the beach a bit, we find the other major influence for Barclay Butera’s neo-traditional designs. Inspired by the exclusive homes of Beverly Hills and Brentwood, these elegant pieces marry an affinity for Old Hollywood glamour with a fresh, modern sensibility. We’re talking classic silhouettes crafted from lustrous, hand-waxed cherry and white ash burl wood. And for a chic contemporary twist, rich ebony and textured silver leaf accents amp up the opulence. When it comes to textiles, an artful layering of white, grey, and black, with pops of celadon and blue, brings a cool, contemporary air to Butera’s exquisite designs. For an extra layer of intrigue, many of these textiles have also been adorned with bold patterns from herringbone and menswear stripes to toile and animal prints.
