McGuire Furniture AD 1992, Stinson Beach.

Our week’s vacation in Stinson Beach is coming to an end, and I couldn’t think of a more appropriate ad campaign than this McGuire Furniture advertisement set at Elinor and John McGuire’s Stinson Beach retreat in 1992 – four years after the completion of their Joseph Esherick built cedar clad pavilion with interiors by Andrew Delfino. The setting selected to showcase a rattan dining suite was the enclosed interior courtyard that serves as an entrance from Seadrift Road in the tony gated enclave, Seadrift. Surrounded on four sides by cedar clad walls, to protect the space from gusts of wind and the sand it brings along, an oculus was punched into the center, creating the feeling of an overhead dome opening to the heavens. The spacious courtyard has a dramatic  impact, hinting at what’s lies within. To see more of the McGuire’s Stinson Beach house go here.

Note: Today’s feature was intended to post last week. Due to lack of Internet connectivity I was presented with a real dilemma: a vacation without social media. Imagine that?!
