In the 1950s, McGuire’s founders, John and Elinor McGuire, became enamored with the rattan furniture they discovered while traveling in Southeast Asia. Returning to San Francisco, they began to import pieces but wanted to improve on their quality and design. Since then, McGuire has combined local production methods with traditional woodworking techniques, such as dovetailed joints, to create indoor and outdoor furniture that celebrates rattan’s durability and its relaxed, tropical aesthetic. The brand has successfully extended this approach to other materials, such as rawhide, cord and concrete, with the help of great designers such as Edward Tuttle, Thomas Pheasant and Barbara Barry.
