The great outdoors was all “In” at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago last month as the International Casual Furniture and Accessories Market featured patio furnishings to party tents. In hosting buyers and retailers of patio, deck and poolside furnishings as well as designers looking for the latest trends in chic furnishings for indoors or out, Seasonal Living was the one showroom that was a must-see! A fact further endorsed with our being singled out as the Merchandising Award winner for Casual Furnishings by the industry publication, Hearth and Home magazine.
For those who may have missed the show, or if you just want a peek at what only those on the “inside” saw, here’s a quick tour of the hot spots and SL’s showroom hits! Check out our showroom video as well for a personal tour.
Seasonal Livings’ Horizon Collection delivered a futuristic design focus in this contemporary grouping of multi-functional, round, all-season, dining table and accessories. It’s easy to see the Scandinavia inspiration from which this collection draws. The Horizon takes patio furniture to the highest level of sophistication while also offering the most durable of all materials. Win-win for all!
If you are into outdoor, you know the beauty and durability of Sunbrella®(R) fabrics. As a major component in our Ring Collection, this fabric along with the Anodized aluminum frames deliver durability multiplied! For furnishing experts, the Ring Collection is inspired by mid-century design and features fluid contemporary elements. For the rest of us, this is a fun, comfortable and long lasting group that packs a wow factor! A satin smooth finish gives an unexpected softness to the frames of the sofa, chair, ottoman, chaise lounge, accent tables, and dining pieces.
The Perpetual Collection of light-weight cement tables were featured throughout Seasonal Livings’ space and continue as the must-have tables for buyers and designers alike. A new ivory-white version debuted. These tables, constructed of biodegradable (no resin) materials including Portland Cement(R) and hemp like grass, expanded to include the Zanzibar – a bio-fuel coffee table with a center fire feature at this show. Get them while their hot!
What is more comfortable than plopping down into a cozy bean-bag-like chair? Plopping down in one from SL’s Nest Collection with a chic design and a hand-woven and eco-friendly construction. Add to that a touch of the nautical with the latest fabric called Ocean Spray, a woven stripe design of vivid cerulean shades of water. We invite everyone to experience a piece of all-weather wonderful!
