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.
