CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RH (NYSE:RH) announced today the debut of the 2017 RH Outdoor Source Book. At more than 300 pages, this design resource presents the most comprehensive collection of quality outdoor furniture in the world. Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman has tapped some of the most renowned global designers to develop and showcase their work on the RH platform.
Mr. Friedman commented, “The 2017 Outdoor Source Book represents our ongoing quest to unite and integrate the ideas of the most innovative and talented designers in the industry, who continue to push established boundaries and shape the future of design.”
This season introduces a new collaboration with esteemed designer Clodagh, whose eponymous collection translates a contemporary metal chair she designed for the indoors into an outdoor silhouette, reimagining hand-woven resin to achieve the striking appearance of bronze. Reflecting the centuries-old art of basketry, the intricate weave creates a bold, open lattice, while the warm finish lends the look of burnished metal to its low, linear forms.
Louis Ho’s Havana Collection mixes contrasting materials for a modern, minimalist take on outdoor furniture. Distinguished by clean lines and graceful curves, the collection is crafted with vertical all-weather wicker cording that creates a dramatic interplay of light and shadow, while the airy frame is grounded by a teak base.
The new assortment includes Barlas Baylar’s first-ever collection for outdoor living. Inspired by his summers in Mykonos, the Aviara Collection is crafted of premium teak and spans both lounge and dining. Aviara’s linear, framed openings create a modern architectural form, while the design’s perfect proportions and ample cushions provide a refined counterpoint.
Ann Marie Vering’s Milano Collection features a bold T-back silhouette crafted of weathered, sustainably harvested premium teak. The highly structured geometric collection – which spans lounge seating and occasional pieces – features clean lines and a low platform base influenced by 1960s modernism.
RH’s continued collaboration with Australian brothers Nicholas and Harrison Condos yields two new collections this season. Celebrating the relaxed sophistication of Sydney’s seaside, Marea is fashioned from hand-wrapped, heathered all-weather rope, creating a dramatic linear silhouette. And with its sleek form and accessible scale, Palma offers contemporary seating and dining pieces handcrafted in double powdercoated aluminum.
Other highlights include the Nido chair, an oversized, organically-shaped statement piece rendered in enduring all-weather wicker that pays homage to 1970s design; the Massimo Collection, featuring broad teak planks with a distinct inset panel design, echoing the architectural inspiration of Mies van der Rohe; and the modern Marbella Collection in teak and aluminum – now available in five modular pieces with ultra-deep seats for endless configuration possibilities and maximum comfort.
Distinctive accents include Jonathan Browning’s geometric, powdercoated cast aluminum Toulon lanterns; handcrafted Toluca fire tables made from reinforced concrete in a natural limestone finish; sleek fiberglass planters in grey and onyx; and textured fiberstone planters in both cubist and organic forms by Mitch Brean. Global-inspired textiles include RH’s African Mud Cloth pillow cover collection and Kerry Joyce’s modern interpretation of Javanese batik– each jacquard-loomed of enduring Sunbrella® fabric – as well as designer Ben Soleimani’s high-performance rugs, which are masterfully hand woven from the finest all-weather yarns to achieve the rich texture and natural feel of wool, for indoors or out.
