Two icons of the design world, interior designer Suzanne Tucker and Michael Taylor Designs, have joined forces to launch the Riviera Collection, a new outdoor furniture line that includes a lounge chair, ottoman, coffee and side table, dining table, dining chairs and sofa. This partnership brings Tucker's design career full circle, reuniting her with the design house of her mentor. "His mastery of scale and proportion, his use of color and light, and his knowledge of furniture and antiques were greatly influential," says Tucker. The collection evokes Taylor's clean-lined look and was inspired by the casual luxury of Santa Barbara, Tucker's hometown.
For the collection, Tucker combined teak with handwoven resin wicker for durability and "to emphasize the indoor/outdoorlook of the line," she explains. "Michael was the master at bringing the outdoors in and creating beautiful outdoor spaces for his clients."
