We’ve always been a fan of #MasteringTheMix. Be it pairing a modern frame with some rustic charm or all-weather wicker chairs with an aluminum table, creating an eclectic and personalized outdoor living space makes summer all the more sweet.

When thinking about our new outdoor living collection, Leia Santos, Director of Product Development, explains that she looked “at what silhouettes are trending in the marketplace for indoors and are then brought that outdoors.” She goes on to say that, “our outdoor product is made with four season materials for durability while resembling more of an indoor space.”


Tis the season for backyard soirees, so get prepared with a variety of creative ways to say, “Thank you!” to the hostess! From a luxe knife set to cut artisanal cheeses, to colorful Moroccan-inspired lanterns, to light up tabletops, we’ve assembled an assortment of the season’s best gifts for anyone giving a party!

Congrats to Derick the winner of our Great American Made Giveaway and soon to be relaxing in our Wordsmith Leather Recliner with “10% Happier” by Dan Harris in hand! We hope this news makes you 100% Happier! 😉

Handmade by master upholsterers in North Carolina, Wordsmith is a celebration of American craftsmanship on this 4th of July. And because we styled it specifically for a good book, we felt it appropriate to share a recommended summer reading list—a compilation of the most popular titles shared by those of you who entered to win!

  1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  2. Invisible by James Patterson
  3. The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula McLain
