WEST CHESTER, Ohio, March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading luxury home lifestyle retailer Frontgate has announced a collaboration with renowned interior designer Carleton Varney to create a colorful outdoor collection for Spring/Summer 2016. The collection includes outdoor furniture, umbrellas, tabletop, rugs and planters, and will be launched in Frontgate's April catalog. Each piece is designed with Mr. Varney's signature style, featuring bold contrasts, unique prints, vibrant colors and, of course, theatrical flair.
Jenn Reeves, SVP of Brand for Frontgate, said, "We are thrilled to be collaborating with Carleton Varney. We love him, our consumers love him and America loves him. With this exciting partnership, we are bringing the Dorothy Draper fabric designs and Carleton's colorful flair to an exclusive collection for outdoor living spaces of all shapes and sizes. Over the next two years, we will be delighting our consumers with the beauty and quality you'd expect from Frontgate mixed with the colorful designs you'd expect from Carleton Varney. It's a match made in design heaven!"
Mr. Varney's kaleidoscopic vision celebrates color and life, and accentuates the experience of grand living. Mr. Varney said, "Frontgate offered me the opportunity to design and create furnishings and fabrics that expressed my feelings and experiences of design styles from my decorating of hotels and residences around the world. My design consideration centered around comfort, practicality and usability, as well as color and style. I am particularly delighted with the melamine Caning Dinnerware that appears at first viewing to be fine porcelain."
In the three furniture assortments, pieces range from a bistro table to deep seating to traditional dining, offering different styling within the thematic whole of Mr. Varney's trademark look. The Hillandale Rose collection presents whimsy in a unique bistro table, Ibis Isle gives a fashion-forward take on Chippendale design, and Giverny updates traditional neoclassic motifs.
The breadth of designful offerings is certainly where Frontgate goes the extra mile. With new outdoor gourmet and serving products, tabletop décor and patterned melamine plates, Frontgate enables effortless, graceful entertaining.
