CIRCA WHO & WHAT: Brown Jordan and the Calcutta Collection

Jun 7, 2022 | Designs and Designers

The Brown Jordan Calcutta collection is one of our favorite vintage finds we come across at Circa Who!

This collection features aspects of the chinese chippendale style faux bamboo and fretwork throughout, the pieces have a woven accented seat as well as an X shaped foot bar with the faux bamboo style throughout.

This collection was originally designed by Hall Bradley in 1967, crafted of powdercoated aluminum making the pieces great candidates for outdoor and indoor use. For more than 70 years Brown Jordan has been innovating furniture design with a focus in making durable outdoor furniture (that could stay outdoors year round which at the time was unheard of). This line as well as the Tamiami line, also designed by Hall Bradley, aided Brown Jordan to become synonymous with a “relaxed, and leisurely lifestyle.”

The Calcutta collection as well as many other pieces by Brown Jordan have become synonymous with “Palm Beach Style” due to their exceptional quality and able to withstand harsh summers and wet seasons as well as adhering to timeless hollywood regency style furniture.
