About Margaret McCurry
Margaret McCurry is an architect, Chicago native, and graduate Loeb Fellow in Advanced Environmental Studies from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. In 1982 she merged her architecture and interiors practice to form Tigerman McCurry Architects, a firm committed to the creation of a contemporary and authentically American architecture and the recipient of seven national AIA awards. McCurry's work focuses on residential architecture and interiors. Lakeside benches and receptacles and Windmark chairs, table and ottoman for Landscape Forms reflect themes and idioms explored in the architecture. She is a member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, was named "Designer of Distinction" for 2002 by ASID and an “Icon of Design” by Traditional Home Magazine in 2009. Her Lakeside Collection received Interior Design Magazine’s Best of the Year Award in 2006.
Lakeside benches are inspired by the familiar themes in nature and historic design that mark the work of architect Margaret McCurry. Benches share a common bent steel frame that recalls the traditional front-porch platform swing. One option has a steel shell seat and back with decorative patterns incised by state-of-the-art plasma-cutting technology. Standard motifs of graceful grasses or falling leaves reflect the environment and custom patterns can be created. A second option features a slatted seat and back in the form of low-tech “pickets” that make whimsical reference to the American domestic landscape. Both 67” long benches are offered in backed and backless versions. All steel parts are finished with Landscape Forms proprietary Pangard II™ polyester powdercoat.
