Terrace Collection Introduction

 

LANDSCAPE FORMS LAUNCHES LIFESTYLE FURNITURE FOR OUTDOOR SPACES

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.

Residential Condo Project in Grand Rapids

 

It is not all furniture for me these days…
Our latest Architectural Design Collaboration in Grand Rapids, MI;
A residential shell-space condo that features two stories of amazing floor to ceiling views, amazing art, and fun and challenging custom features such as a ‘floating’ bookshelf against the glass, tables that descent from the ceiling, custom mill work, and reclaimed left-over Jarrah wood from our factory in Kalamazoo.

Great project, Team, Friends, and Clients!

Core 77 awards has selected our Olithas video entry as part of the C77 Design Awards Gallery

earlier this week. We are extremely happy and elated for this recognition, considering we were

up against big budgets like Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Ziba.

Thank you Jeff Marrow for helping us pull this quick Video together in an afternoon.

He went above and beyond any expectations when we approached him to help us with this entry.
