Quintessential all-American designer Barclay Butera has been creating luxury lifestyle-inspired interiors for his legion of fans for years. Since 1994, he has been the creative force behind his iconic design firm opening his first flagship showroom in Newport Beach, California. The overwhelming success in Newport prompted Butera to establish additional showroom locations on La Cienega Boulevard in Hollywood, California and also Park City, Utah where Butera has certainly made his mark on design. No matter what the showrooms’ lifestyle, a single factor remains certain; Butera’s signature comfortable elegance always triumphs. While his style has evolved over the years one thing has not changed: his firm belief in helping his clients achieve the “Better-Best” concept of living. The end result is always a glamorous, yet completely livable environment where the client’s heritage pieces are flawlessly integrated along with his philosophy of blending classic pieces of furniture, pattern-on-pattern fabrics and bold textures. In essence, Butera creates fashion for the home that is both classic and timeless with a West Coast twist!
Known for his unique yet assertive taste Butera stands by his mantra: “In interior design there are no rules.” His style grounds itself in traditional American, European and Far East influences. He is inspired by everything from fashion to his world travels, as well as Slim Aarons cinematic photography and crisp Tom Ford suits. Butera has always fancied old Hollywood and West Palm Beach as his muse, where tailored lines and the importance of layering design elements prevail.
