Uwharrie Chair Teams with William Mangum for Outdoor Line
"Carolina Preserves" takes its name and inspiration from a book Mangum published in 2000 that is a colorful tribute to North Carolina, comprising 48 stories by North Carolinians and 130 of Mangum's prints.
"Since the beginning of my career, I was struck by how quickly many of the images I chose to paint were lost to progress," said Mangum. "'Carolina Preserves' was created to celebrate life and preserve the ever-changing landscapes and city streets of North Carolina."
Klaussner Furniture debuted the indoor line of Carolina Preserves at the recent High Point Furniture Market.
"We're excited to collaborate with Mangum, a North Carolina artist who celebrates this beautiful state through art, print, video and now for the first time outdoor furniture," said Uwharrie Chair President Rebecca Ly.
Uwharrie Chair will debut Carolina Preserves out door furniture at the Jan. 7-14 International Gift & Home Furnishing Market in Atlanta.
