CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RH (NYSE: RH) announced today the release of the 2019 RH Outdoor Source Book. At more than 400 pages, this comprehensive design resource debuts one of the largest curated and fully integrated offerings of high-quality outdoor furniture, performance textiles and distinctive garden accents in the world – a reflection of Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman’s continued quest to assemble the industry’s most forward-thinking designers and manufacturers to create exclusive new collections for the expanding RH platform.
Mr. Friedman commented, “We are proud to introduce our latest Outdoor Source Book and the innovative designers highlighted throughout, who continue to challenge conventional wisdom, imagining a new and inspiring way to live.”
In a first-time collaboration with RH, globally-renowned designer Piet Boon (Amsterdam) debuts Bonaire, offering a commanding presence with its strong, architectural lines and generous proportions. Masterfully employing robust solid timbers of sustainably harvested teak, the collection extends indoor living to outdoor spaces with its refined design, comfort and entirely modern sensibility.
Internationally acclaimed designer Mario Ruiz (Barcelona) unveils two striking lounge and dining collections, both paying homage to midcentury Scandinavian design. Built of solid teak, Sebastian features gently sloped and sculpted arms in a dynamic juxtaposition of angles and curves. Mixing materials to elegant effect, Mesa pairs frames of solid teak with handwoven all-weather wicker for the seat’s cradling arc – a graceful play epitomizing the strength of simplicity and modernity. This collection is also offered in a frame of premium handcrafted aluminum with an all-weather wicker seat.
A staple in European Neoclassical garden furniture for centuries, the timeless sophistication of latticework is beautifully reinterpreted in the Greystone collection by designer Ann Marie Vering (Los Angeles), where airy, gracefully curved frames lend a sense of lightness to enduring teak or aluminum construction. Evoking an iconic Louis XVI profile, Loire by Fred Doughty (Los Angeles) offers the beauty of teak in a handwoven diagonal lattice. Trousdale, a modern reimagining of 19th-century French designs, is rendered in cast aluminum with a slender silhouette accented by stepped corners, sabot feet and traditional X-braces.
Among the season’s other highlights are Calais from architect and designer Marcel Opstal (Jakarta), which reimagines the simple, open box weave to create contemporary latticework expertly hand-carved of solid teak; Bondi by Nicholas and Harrison Condos (Sydney), a contemporary chair and barstool collection where all-weather rope seating is juxtaposed with sleek aluminum or teak frames; Biarritz, handwoven of durable all-weather wicker in a round weave; and the recently introduced Olema Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Dallas-based designer David Sutherland – now available in aluminum.
This year also sees the introduction of two high-performance pillow collections – Perennials® Framed by celebrated interior designer Kelly Hoppen (London), where bold, graphic appliqued statements in contrasting tones reflect her signature contemporary style and meticulous attention to detail; and Perennials® Fresco by Ann Sutherland (Dallas), a timeless design inspired by the weathered painterly medallions of centuries-old Italian frescoes paired with complementary stripes and solids.
New garden accents include the minimalist Claudel lanterns from acclaimed designer Jonathan Browning (San Francisco), evoking modern architectural forms with dramatic beveled planes; the Tuuci® Ocean Master Classical Roman Valance Umbrella by Dougan Clarke (Miami), an unparalleled design crafted with marine-grade materials to the standards of a luxury racing yacht, its effortless auto-pulley lift system, stainless steel hardware and aluminum ribs ensuring a lifetime of durability and ease of use; and the sculptural Ojai Fire Table, a floating geometric statement piece rendered in high-performance reinforced concrete.
Complementing the global perspective are a range of distinctive planters – Castel by Mitch Brean (San Diego), who reinterprets rustic 18th-century Italian carved stonework in fluid forms; 19th C. Tuscan, a timeless vessel resembling those that grace the villas of northern Italy; Dumont, recalling classic pots ubiquitous in the south of France; and Lascaux, influenced by the clean lines of mid-20th century International Style.
