DALLAS, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Sutherland Furniture®, the preeminent provider of luxury outdoor furniture, has announced new collections for Spring 2018. The lineup includes partnerships with two celebrated international designers, Vincent Van Duysen and Christophe Delcourt. In addition, Sutherland is debuting four new offerings from the brand: Versailles tables, Sag Harbor Lounge Chair, Gallery Table, and new Sutherland umbrella styles.
The Franck Collection boasts nine new pieces created by esteemed Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen. The distinguished AD100 designer’s collaboration keeps with Sutherland’s history of partnering with leading designers and emphasizes Van Duysen’s precise architectural aesthetic. The Franck Collection accents table styles by utilizing Belgian Bluestone, a Van Duysen signature material. The collection also showcases Sutherland’s performance properties, featuring an innovative dual-movable back chaise with integrated side table.
Speaking to his Franck Collection designs, Van Duysen references his inspiration as the work of French interior decorator Jean-Michel Frank. “The pure and essential, but at the same time very elegant and sensual, language of the 1930’s is a reference we use very often in our interior projects,” explains Van Duysen. “I want to create simple, timeless, and refined objects that fit both classic and modern environments. Sutherland has the ability to translate this idea of a domestic interior feeling to the outdoor environment, which I very much admire.”
French designer Christophe Delcourt has an exciting new partnership with Sutherland Furniture as well. Delcourt’s unique pieces complement Sutherland Furniture’s materials. Delcourt offers mixed material styles that create contrast and depth. Many pieces also feature bullnose edge designs that result in sensual looks with European élan.
“I am very much inspired by the materials, the know-how, and the way a piece of furniture is constructed,” says Christophe Delcourt. “I always focus on joinery and how furniture is built, which make it timeless. This is always the beginning and the inspiration for unique pieces.”
Sutherland Furniture is also debuting Versailles, a new design by longtime collaborator Joe Doyle of John Hutton™. Inspired by 1600’s Parquet de Versailles, the two outdoor table styles combine the classical geometric motif with a contemporary edge and superior construction in 20 standard color options.
The Sag Harbor Lounge Chair is also an homage to past design. With updated and durable materials – aluminum and polyethylene resin weaving – it is perfect for extended outdoor use. The Sag Harbor Lounge Chair was inspired by a
