Sean Knibb debuts SK1 furniture collection

Brentwood, CA – Designer Sean Knibb’s latest indoor/outdoor furniture collection has found a new home at Calypso Home St. Barth. A trunk show will introduce Knibb and unveil nine new pieces: tables, chairs and cubes on July 7, 2011 at the Brentwood store.

The new partnership brings together a leading Los Angeles designer with a trendsetting retailer committed to a common goal: creating contemporary and comfortable design-forward lifestyles. Handcrafted by a team of artisans in Los Angeles, Knibb’s Eldo Dining and Cocktail tables and Eldo Bench are fashioned with powder-coated recycled iron frames topped with reclaimed Douglas fir, whereas the Marble Ilex Dining and Marble Eldo Cocktail tables are topped in Carrera marble. The Negril and Alba chairs also have powder-coated recycled iron frames and either burlap or sun fabric covered indoor or outdoor foam cushions. Boxwood Cubes are made with indoor or outdoor foam covered with various bright striped specialty fabrics. All iron bases are in white, with special orders available in other signature colors.

“We are focused on creating beautiful, comfortable and timeless environments with a bohemian influence, and Sean’s furniture fits in perfectly with the aesthetic that is Calypso Home,” said store manager Jay Krift. “It’s a pleasure to work with a local designer who shares our passion for design and the creation of smart furniture handcrafted here.”

Added Knibb: “Calypso and I share the same goals of creating distinct design with timeless style, while upholding a high standard of quality. I am excited for the opportunity to work with Jay and his great team at the Brentwood store.”
