Chair of the Month

THE STUNNER: The Guernica Lounge Chair from Laura Kirar’s ground breaking collection for McGuire Furniture. This glorious piece of collectible furniture has undeniable presence and is truly the epitome and definition of ‘statement piece.’ The craftsmanship and engineering that is required to create this gorgeous, yet edgy jewel is much more complicated than it seemingly appears. Each lounger requires a custom-made needle that painstakingly pulls contrasting smooth and textured laces at variegated lengths through 3,500 holes in tiny honeycomb caning. This custom process takes a single artisan several weeks to complete.

As HRI Design continues to refine its capabilities as a multi-disciplinary Interior Design firm, the company reviewed many candidates to oversee their ever-growing Commercial design studio.  The task to find a thought leader, with similar core values, and (most importantly), impeccable design vision, was a near impossible feat!  However, after much searching we are proud to announce the appointment of Carla Idrogo IIDA, NCIDQ, as the Director of HRI Design’s Commercial Studio. Carla brings with her two decades of design experience from the Bay Area. Her primary area of focus at HRI Design will be to aid in the strategic development and expansion of HRI’s Commercial Design Studio.
