John and Eleanor McGuire
Kohler, Baker, Ann Sacks, Kallista
The name McGuire has been synonymous with style and elegance for 60 years. Since 1948, McGuire has been internationally known for creating classic furniture of the finest materials. Each piece of furniture is crafted by trained artisans who bend, weave and form every chair, table or accessory by hand. In an era of manufactured furniture, McGuire has forged a new path using best in class materials and a quality of workmanship that is as uncompromising today as it was sixty years ago. Like the exquisite stitching of a French seam, or running your finger over finely engraved stationery, McGuire's attention to subtle detail is more than a production mandate; it's a design philosophy.
We've always liked McGuire's laid-back aesthetic, and their use of natural materials with high-end craftsmanship. Checking out some of their old catalog photos, we realized it's a look that goes back to their founding in the 1950s. Some of these rooms still seem fresh...
Wicker's a trend that's gone in and out of style over the years, but McGuire generally gets it right, combining clean-lined modern forms with age-old methods for weaving and forming wood by hand. We love the daybeds, bentwood dining chairs...and that bed in the 1972 photo kinda rocks our world.
