Last month at NeoCon, HBF introduced a new collection of seating and occasional tables by Barbara Barry, who has collaborated with the Hickory, NC-based company since 1993. The twenty-two designs is the largest assortment--composed of four seating groups and five complimentary tables--from the Los Angeles-based Barry in a decade.
"I love working in a modern vernacular, paring down forms to their essential nature while maintaining the warmth and feel of fine furniture. Says Kevin Stark, President of HBF, "This exciting new collection is indicative of her exquisite design aesthetic--refinement, elegance and simplicity. As always, Barbara pushes us in a new direction; her designs are familiar, yet innovative, and easily specifiable for different environments."
