Brown Jordan Debuts Michael S. Smith Collection at High Point
Arbre and Deia, the inaugural lines, represent two distinct points of view on outdoor living through the lens of Smith’s blend of classic European élan and tailored American modernism.
“My work has always been about marrying high style with a kind of effortless ease and comfort attuned to the rhythms of contemporary life,” said Smith. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring that sensibility to the arena of outdoor furniture.”
The Arbre collection revives the faux bois style of garden furnishings mastered by French artisans in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The Deia collection presents a vision of la dolce vita inspired by a Spanish village Smith discovered while traveling in Mallorca.
“Michael brings an unparalleled design sensibility coupled with a deep understanding of Brown Jordan’s tradition of premier design, craftsmanship and quality,” said Steve Elton, chief brand curator of Brown Jordan. “With an amazing attention to detail, he distilled the essence of every form, every finish, every proportion and every material. Together, we’ve created a collection that feels both timeless and of the moment. We could not be more excited about this partnership.”
