: John McGuire was an advertising salesman in San Francisco in the 1940s when he happened upon a company selling rattan furniture. Taken with its look, McGuire began selling the pieces, and soon after, he and wife Elinor launched McGuire Furniture Co. The business expanded over the years to carry a range of furnishings for indoors and out, and a third showroom opened in Scottsdale in early 2008.
: Jason Phillips, president of McGuire Furniture Co., notes that the laid-back lifestyle found in the Southwest complements the company’s offerings. “There is an easy elegance so prevalent in this part of the country that perfectly aligns with the McGuire aesthetic.”
What’s in store
: While McGuire Furniture Co. is known for its rattan furnishings with rawhide bindings, a range of other materials abounds. These include teak, bamboo, aluminum and Oriental hardwoods. Find planters and decorative bowls manufactured of copper and tables crafted from ironwood. Also showcased are furniture lines by Thomas Pheasant and Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, lighting by artist Robert Kuo, and a collection of garden stools. In addition, the showroom houses a fabric gallery of both indoor and outdoor textiles.
: McGuire Furniture Co. has partnered with Scottsdale-based Bonner David Galleries to display an assortment of contemporary artwork at the store. The display is ongoing.
