To me, the name Barbara Barry is synonymous with elegance and class. Her designs are flawless, inviting and breathtaking. Just take her Script side chair for McGuire Furniture for example...beautiful.
I had the good fortune of interviewing Ms. Barry for a school assignment. Needless to say, she is an inspiration. The advice I remember most is to be a "design machine"; always create and produce new ideas. Companies want someone who they know will never dry up.
