Lines We Love: Brown Jordan

This morning in our staff meeting, we got a visit from our Brown Jordan rep! His timing could not have been any better after the beautiful weekend we had here in Mississippi! The pretty warm weather got all of us (and hopefully you!) in the summer groove, which made us think about outdoor entertaining and lounging!

In case you are not familiar, Brown Jordan is an amazing line of outdoor furniture.  We actually have a Brown Jordan showroom next door at the Viking Cooking School!  Their patio is 100% Brown Jordan product, and it is just beautiful!

Brown Jordan is the best outdoor furniture in the industry. Hands down. The quality is unsurpassable.  One of the many great things we learned this morning in the meeting is that Brown Jordan gives all aluminum furniture frames a 15 year warranty, even if the furniture is on the beach! Other outdoor furniture companies' warranties are void if the furniture is within three miles of the beach.  That is very impressive, right?!

Speaking of aluminum frames... Not only do they offer aluminum outdoor furniture, they also have woven and wood.  With dozens of collections, there is an outdoor style to fit pretty much any setting! They range from ultra traditional to ultra modern.  Our favorite is probably the fusion collection! Here is a peek at some of their collections.  You can see all the collections here!

Another great thing about Brown Jordan is how customizable it is.  They have about 120 fabric options (all solution-dyed acryllic to prevent fading), 11 strap color options and 15 aluminum finishes.  Everything is made to order, so each piece of furniture will be made just for you, exactly how you want it! It doesn't get any better than that!

Now is the time to start thinking about furnishing your patio, back porch, or pool area.  Summer is SO close! It is hard to believe that spring break is already here.  Let one of our knowledgeable designers help you pick out just the right pieces for your outdoor space!  As our rep said to us, "Why not order your last group of outdoor furniture first?"  Don't get something you know you will have to throw away in a couple of years.  Make an investment in something you'll have for a long, long time!

Lines We Love: Jonathan Adler

As we were playing on the Jonathan Adler site, a few of their new items just really grabbed us! We have some of this at the store, and have the capability to order any of it! They get more and more creative every season, and that is exactly why we love them!

Lines We Love: Serena and Lily

Serena and Lily, a line that started out solely with bedding, began in 2003 with creative minds Serena Dugan and Lily Kanter.  Serena had a background in fabrics, Lily a background in baby-focused retail.  After they collaborated and launched their initial baby/child bedding line, they saw such great success that they decided to branch into "grown up" bedding.  The next step was furniture and accessories!  They continually evolve and add, keeping things interesting for those of us who follow their every move.  Here are just a few of the things these ladies have created.  Hopefully it will be easy for you to see why we love Serena and Lily so!
