NorthCape and Libby Langdon Unveil New Collections and Accessories

NorthCape and designer Libby Langdon introduced four new outdoor collections at Casual Market Chicago. The new designs include rugs, lighting, and accessories from a growing list of brand partners.

“Retailers came to market looking for something fresh and new to excite shoppers,” Langdon says, “and our goal was to present them with fashion-forward, high-quality furniture for the outdoors—in an inspirational environment, packed with great ideas that they could take back to their stores. Along with the new furniture collections, buyers and designers found outdoor lighting from Crystorama and outdoor rugs from KAS Rugs.”

The creative force behind Libby Interiors Inc. (New York, New York), Libby Langdon has one of the fastest-growing home-furnishings brands and quickly is making her mark in the outdoor category. As a high-profile advocate for her brand partners, she understands the needs of retailers and designers; she wowed visitors to the 2017 Hampton Designer Showhouse with a patio space reflecting her easy, elegant, everyday style. With a fresh aesthetic powered by near-daily conversations with consumers, Langdon says, “More and more people are realizing that they can create complete, cozy, and comfortable outdoor rooms in the same way they would their indoor rooms.”

Alisa Jamieson, sales and customer-service manager at retailer LuxeDecor (Chicago, Illinois), says, “The new collections for NorthCape by Libby Langdon incorporate all the design elements you would expect to see in your living room, but instead are available to furnish your outdoor space. The innovative and uniquely designed collections feature a relaxed (yet tailored) look that is visually pleasing and comfortable.”

Tom Murray, president of NorthCape, says, “We had a strong history of on-target product development that helped us attract and build a great dealer base, but we also knew there were more dealers and end users out there. Engaging Libby Langdon to attract those new dealers and excite existing dealers was a no–brainer.”

The new licensed outdoorlighting collection is Libby Langdon for Crystorama. According to Langdon, “Finding chic, transitional lighting that’s not too traditional or fussy—and not too modern and cold—has long been a challenge.” Norman Wollach of Jackson’s Home & Garden (Dallas, Texas), says, “I’ve been looking for an outdoor-lighting line that is fresh and exciting— that balances elegance and sophistication with affordability. Libby hit the mark.”

Also popular with Casual Market Chicago attendees were outdoor rugs from Langdon’s latest licensing partnership with KAS Rugs. Tammy Wheatley, buyer for Statuary World Patio & Fireside (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), reports, “It’s going to be great to offer outdoor- rug options that have been custom designed by Libby to coordinate with our current outdoor fabrics.”

Langdon’s NorthCape furniture designs further blur the lines between elegant interior and exterior design. The clean-lined Taylor collection combines upholstered Textiline®all-weather material, luxe cushioning, and a dark wood-look aluminum frame. Mixed textures and materials add dimension and versatility—from the nutmegcolored slubby-weave material on the outside of the upholstered chairs, sofa, and love seat to the tabletops (with travertine stone-look ceramic tile that has creamy marbling). The transitional dining table features a dark wood-look aluminum frame, an angular base, and clear glass that shows off its sleek lines and details.

Sleekly styled, with angular, architecturally influenced lines, the Weston collection is designed to work in a variety of settings. With a narrow stainless-steel frame wrapped in naturallook jute twine, Weston fits in spaces of all sizes. It pops against dark wooden decks, is ideal for modern light-tile patios, and is stunning in gray saltwashed settings. The geometric woven-resin lower shelf is highlighted by glass tops on the side and cocktail tables and is echoed on the fire table, where a stainless-steel band wrap emphasizes the mixed-material theme. Generous innerseating width and depth make for great comfort.

Mooring by Libby Langdon for NorthCape is a sophisticated combination of textures and materials, creating an elegant look that is tailored and transitional, with exceptional durability. Mixing side-by-side dark-walnut willow-weave panels with an oil-rubbed bronze finish on the aluminum frame feels rich and luxurious, while the high legs on the sofa, love seat, and lounge chair keep the look light and airy. Finished in oilrubbed bronze aluminum, the dining table’s beautifully styled, classically inspired trestle is set off by a Dura-Wood smoke-gray wood-textured top. Stationary and swivel dining chairs feature a slim profile—with comfortable and generous inner-seat cushions.

The Live Edge table collection by Libby Langdon for NorthCape is designed to work beautifully with numerous NorthCape and Libby Langdon collections. Offered in dining, end, and cocktail tables, the natural wood-look slab tabletop features a stylish (yet simple) oil-rubbed base. The emphasis is on creating an eclectic mix of unique pieces that work seamlessly with many different dining-chair and lounge-seating styles.
