Black Tie International:
Barclay Butera Becomes Official Sundance Provider

Lifestyle designer Barclay Butera, as a new Official Provider of the Sundance Film Festival, is honored to help create Sundance's Opening Night: An Artist at the Table. The sold-out fundraiser on January 21st in Park City, UT, celebrates the importance of independent artists and their stories, and includes a cocktail reception, dinner, live entertainment by award-winning Sundance Composer Fellows, and attendance at the Festival's premiere screenings at the Eccles Theatre. Butera will engage his signature mix of textures and patterns to produce an elegant evening that also reflects the stunning snow-white exterior of Park City.

"I have participated in a number of events during Sundance, but helping produce Artist at the Table for the acclaimed Sundance Institute is a huge honor and very exciting. I love film and I admire the organization's impressive nurturing of talent," states Butera, President and CEO of Barclay Butera Inc. "Especially because I work with an extensive list of celebrity clientele, it is important for me to be able to celebrate their creativity and can give back to the entertainment community through what I do."

Butera--who has had a home and one of his retail showrooms in Park City since 2003--understands the magic of the color 'white'. The event's décor has a base of white but with regal accents of red, blue and leopard print velvet throughout. "The blue stained windows of the space produce an especially beautiful reflection on the white, which has the effect of connecting the outside white from the snow with the indoors," observes Butera.

The designer will place eight pyramid-shaped candelabras with a series of candlelit hurricanes flanking the entrance and balanced throughout the venue. Amidst this elegant theme, Butera has created a symmetrical 'grand' entry by placing his Paris-lounge inspired Brentwood Settees in red linen in a linear approach to the cocktail area. Specially-prepared white woven linen drapery will display the Artist at the Table logo embroidered in red. And, as with all that Butera does, decorative pillows will add a richness, as well as tactile and visual engagement, to the scene. Pillows will be in blue velvet, leopard print, and a rich blue/gold/red satin stripe.

The theme of involving the senses continues through dinner. In the center of each table will be two clear hurricanes with crystals inside, holding white candles, and a vase of fragrant white tulips with red dogwood branches. The tables are covered in a navy blue lamour tablecloth with antique gold sparkle overlay, and the napkins are in gold lamour.

Butera's involvement with the Sundance Institute launched in June 2009 when he hosted that month's salon for filmmaker Robert Epstein and the Sundance Institute Film Series at his Park City showroom. In past years during the time of the festival, Butera has been involved with The Creative Coalition, Hollywood Life, Western Interiors & Design magazine, Queer Lounge, the Egyptian Theatre Co. (for which he held a fundraiser), as well as with the Los Angeles Times, WireImage the Utah Film Commission, HP and L'Oreal.


Barclay Butera, Inc. is based in Newport Beach, CA, and entails the Barclay Butera collection showrooms in Newport Beach and Los Angeles, CA, and Park City, UT. Barclay Butera Home, Inc. products ( are distributed through over 300 showrooms, his own collection showrooms, and To the Trade nationwide. Butera designs and manufactures his bench made upholstery products in Los Angeles, CA. Please visit for a full introduction.
