Encore’s Mayland Collection Offers a Fresh Perspective on Seating
Mayland, the latest guest and lounge seating collection by Southern-California based Encore, uses humancentric design elements and layered componentry to create a compelling visual from the simplest of forms.
The third collaboration between Encore and integrative design fi m Gower + Woolf, Mayland’s standout feature is an exposed tubular metal frame that encircles the back to provide an appealing aesthetic from any
angle. A thin-profile, tapered upholstered shell provides support while also serving as an underlying structure for plush cushions, which are generously proportioned to ensure lasting comfort.
As with all Encore product families, design details are thoughtfully shared between all models to ensure a consistent look regardless of scale or application, allowing for effortless versatility. This extends to metal
finish options, which are offered in colors ranging from the subtle to sophisticated and everything in-between. Whatever the combination, Mayland easily accomplishes its purpose in waiting areas, meeting spaces,
hospitality applications and more.
“Mayland was first-and-foremost designed for comfort, which is evident in its oversized cushions and soft, flowing curves,” says Tammie Alciatore, Encore’s Director of Marketing. “It’s welcoming but at the same
time visually interesting, earning extra style points for its layered look, wraparound metal frame and subtle stitching details.”
Dynamic in both its design and purpose, Mayland is uniquely irresistible, delivering style, comfort and endless specification choices to fit in everywhere. Currently on display in Encore’s permanent showroom at the
Merchandise Mart in Chicago, the collection also includes a wood frame option slated for availability this fall.
