Terrace Collection Introduction



KALAMAZOO, MI–Landscape Forms is proud to introduce Terrace Life, a new initiative that marks the company’s entry into lifestyle furniture for more intimate, social, high-design outdoor spaces. “Design professionals know Landscape Forms as a manufacturer of site furniture for streetscapes, parks and campuses,” explains company president Richard Heriford. “Now we are going to places we haven’t been before with furniture by award-winning architects and landscape architects designed specifically for terraces, rooftop gardens and other private and protected spaces. With Terrace Life we’re creating new modern classics.”


Landscape Forms enjoys a reputation among design professionals for contemporary site furniture of exceptional design and quality. Terrace Life takes the design conversation to another realm of scale, proportion and finish with furniture that addresses lifestyle in social spaces on the other side of the glass door. Terrace Life includes collections of beautiful products tailored for spaces distinguished by their unique ambience and quality of social life. In outdoor rooms where old friends gather and new friends meet, where rejuvenation and celebration intersect, Terrace Life focuses on the experience in these spaces. It is designed to engender feelings of connection, camaraderie and the awareness of being in a special place. It is furniture that satisfies the senses and the emotions. Designed with architects and interior designers in mind, its beautiful forms, impeccable details and finishes and elegant informality set a new standard for furniture created for spaces at the transition between architecture and nature.

Kirt Martin, Vice President of Design and Marketing for Landscape Forms, said about Terrace Life, “The body of knowledge, experience, craft and design this company has developed over 44 years culminates in this point of view—this is what we think it should be. Ultra precise. Ultra inspirational. And some of the best work we’ve ever done.”
Terrace Life makes its debut with three new collections. Morrison, designed by Lionel Morrison, features a high table with stools and a broad, low sybaritic bench. It reflects the refined sensibility of the architect renowned for his serene modernist buildings. Olithas is a table and bench collection by architect/industrial designer Efrain Velez that draws on his grounding in classical and international style and his interest in innovative material technology. This 2013 Red Dot Award winner features thin-profile MeldStone™ surfaces of stunning form and elegance. The Chipman Collection from landscape architect Robert Chipman includes chairs and tables in standard and low heights. Slender, tapered forms come together in lyrical pieces that are light in visual appearance and in the aluminum of which they are made.
More information about these collections will be released in the weeks ahead and more Terrace Life collections from inspired designers are in the pipeline. Now Terrace Life gives design professionals a new place to go for high-design furniture for special outdoor spaces. Looking for Landscape Forms? We’re out on the terrace.
