Let’s chat outdoor furniture!  We know the seasons are getting chillier, but we still have our endless Summer in SoCal and love to spend as much time outdoors as possible. On The Design Bloggers Tour around High Point Market, Esteem Media took us through the best showrooms that market has to offer. Market is all about sourcing for the seasons ahead – that’s why it’s such a great place for trend forecasting. What you see at market is going to show up in homes and retail spaces months down the line. This market, we saw a variety of outdoor furniture of every style at every price point. Let’s break it down:

1. Best Luxury Outdoor Furniture: Sifas France

Elegant and ultra durable, Sifas France’s furniture makes us feel Amalfi Coast-ready and their designs are distinctive and original. Their Medditerranean resort style is unlike any other outdoor furniture vendor we’ve seen and they are worth every penny!

2. Best Use of Indoor Outdoor Style: Huntington House

Browsing the Huntington House showroom, you’ll see lots of beautiful indoor upholstery and eventually stumble upon the outdoor furniture without realizing it! Covered in Crypton performance fabric, their outdoor furniture is upholstered as comfortably as their interior pieces and made to last! 

Yep- All of the pieces in this pic are outdoor!


3. Trendiest Outdoor Furniture: Four Hands Furniture

Based out of Austin, Texas, Four Hands specializes in trendy, industrial and mid century urban loft styles. Their outdoor furniture is super stylish and we want to live in every one of their room scenes!

We’re suckers for the string lights too!


4. Best Constructed Outdoor Furniture: Lloyd Flanders

The family-owned company has been around forever – their weaves are beautiful and the pieces last forever too! Lloyd Flanders creates such a cozy environment, we spent a lot of time in here and had too much fun on their porch swing!

5. Best Value Outdoor Furniture: Dorel

Dorel had some on-trend, adorable styles – great options for starter apartments and dorms. We loved their black and white stories and their adorable low-slung chairs. They have an overwhelming selection too – we recommend starting with the curated Novogratz and Cosmopolitan collections. They’re designed with kids and pets and busy families in mind.
