About Barclay Butera
Since 1994, Barclay Butera has been the creative force behind his eponymous design firm and showroom in Newport Beach, California. His success in Newport prompted Butera to establish showrooms in West Hollywood, California, and Park City, Utah. Butera is renowned for his approachable elegance and glamorous, coastal-chic interiors.
Barclay Butera’s inspirations are drawn from a diverse variety of grand architecture from coast to coast, European and far eastern influences including everything from the high-fashion runways to his far-flung world travels. But, he readily credits old Hollywood and Palm Beach as among his greatest muses. Butera’s design-signature is distinctive; classic with a fresh twist that is flawlessly integrated into traditional, transitional, and contemporary interiors alike. His artful inclusion of heritage pieces that blend seamlessly alongside distinctive furnishings, pattern-on-pattern fabrics and bold textures are all hallmarks of his iconic all-American style. Butera’s passion for interior design began over two decades ago, and has grown into an impressive lifestyle enterprise that is known and sought after around the world today.
In addition to his thriving interior design business, Butera’s venture into licensing has landed him an unprecedented number of the industry’s most respected partners including: Bradburn Gallery Home lighting, Eastern Accents bedding, luxury down, and mattresses; Highland House Furniture, Kravet indoor textiles, outdoor textiles, and carpets; Leftbank Art, Mirror Image Home decorative mirrors, Mirth Studio patterned hardwood tiles, Nourison carpets, and Winfield Thybony/ MDC for wallcoverings. Most recently, Butera has signed with Castelle; a subsidiary of Pride Family Brands for an outdoor furnishings collection to launch spring 2017. Barclay’s spectacular design projects and his myriad of licensing collections are frequently featured in luxury consumer publications, décor and lifestyle magazines, and trade magazines.
Butera is the author of five coffee-table books: Living in Style (Assouline, 2008), Barclay Butera – Living on the Coast (Gibbs-Smith, 2012), Barclay Butera – Getaways and Retreats (Gibbs-Smith, 2013), Barclay Butera – Past, Present, Inspired (Gibbs-Smith, 2015), and Barclay Butera - Modern Living (Gibbs-Smith, 2016).
