Independently-minded and exuberantly-imaginative, Richard Schultz is a master at his craft. His outdoor furniture designs sit in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris. Outside of these esteemed establishments, you’ll find his furniture in the outdoor spaces and gardens of some of the world’s finest homes, hotels and resorts.
With such accomplishments and over half a century at work, you’d think Schultz would close up shop and turn his focus to “growing” plants instead of furniture, but that’s left for another day as he continues to challenge himself in creating “aesthetically pleasing and comfortable” outdoor furniture designs.
We’re so into Schultz’s 1966 Collection, we’re specifying it for one of our current projects, a ranch in Carmel. The collection was first created in 1966 for Florence Knoll (architect and designer), who wanted “well-designed furnishings that would withstand the corrosive salt air at her home in Florida.” Over four decades later, the 1966 Collection is still relevant and being produced and sold around the world.
Take a look at some of Schultz’s sleek and sexy designs that would look perfect with any size bikini and fruity libation.
