GLOBAL VIEWS WELCOMES INTERIOR DESIGNER JULIA BUCKINGHAM TO DESIGNER ROSTER

DALLAS (September 16, 2014) – Global Views is pleased to announce that interior designer Julia Buckingham of Buckingham Interiors + Design has been added to their roster of noted designers. Julia Buckingham for Global Views is a collection for the entire home where Buckingham used her expertise in century design and antiques to create a contemporary yet heirloom-inspired line that complements 20th Global Views’ clean, globally influenced aesthetic. Product will debut in Fall 2015.

Staying true to her signature Modernique® style, in her new Global Views product, Buckingham seamlessly blends furniture and fixtures from the past with those of today for interiors that convey a warm and energetic style, all with a timeless quality. Buckingham utilizes rich colors, soothing neutrals, and both rustic and refined finishes for a collection that will include lighting fixtures, accessories, rugs, accent pillows, furniture and decorative tabletop pieces. All pieces are inspired by Julia’s world travels and experiences to create a look as though they were collected over many years and well-suited for any 21st-century style either contemporary or traditional. The colorful, multi-layered and texturally rich collection will bring a refreshing combination of antiques, artifacts and modern sensibility to Global Views.

Buckingham not only finds inspiration in her own personal collection of antiques and vintages pieces, but from fashion, with nearly every detail in the collection resonating with pieces from vintage or contemporary fashion houses like Chanel, Balenciaga and Hermes. Buckingham also draws influence from around the world including American Indian Heritage in the American Southwest, flea markets like Marche aux Puces de Saint Ouen in France and the timeless color combinations found throughout Spanish history.

“My collection [for Global Views] is inspired by all those wonderful items that I’ve found over the years, with the look and feel that it was a lifetime in the making,” explained Buckingham. “I am thrilled to be a part of the Global Views family as they are uniquely positioned to bring my collection to life.”

"Julia's personal style and take on interior design makes her the perfect partner for Global Views. She is fresh, excited, and relevant to this moment. I am so pleased that we have her style and substance coming into our line in the near future,” said Global Views founder and CEO David Gebhart. “I believe
customers, both interior designers and retailers, will be blown away by her personality as it shines through in her designs for us. I cannot wait to get her designs into the hands of our artisans around the globe. I'm sure that the results will be awe inspiring."
