Celebrate Your Independence With A Staycation To Remember

It’s summer at last. The holiday weekend kicks off the season with a bang, and we’re off—let the vacationing begin! But wait: does the thought of heading to the airport or spending endless hours in the car give you the blues? Declare your independence from tourism and give a staycation a try. We’re not in love with feeling the summer blues, but we sure love looking at them. So chat with friends and family on your porch. Entertain on your patio. Relax in your pool—and let your imagination do the traveling.

These staycation inspirations will transform your blues into bliss…

Relax at a Resort. Curl up with a good book or soak up some sun at a resort of your own making. The Millbrook chaise creates the perfect poolside spot, right in your own backyard.

Enjoy an English Garden. View the flora while relaxing on elegant and comfy outdoor pillows (created with well-chosen, coordinated outdoor fabrics). The blue and white porcelain Pierced garden seat becomes the perfect perch for a refreshing beverage.

Float down Memory Lane. Your memories are always part of you, no matter where you travel. Our 63.25” x 43.25” giclée, Pretty Poolside, adds a midcentury modern vibe to any interior—and stirs a little nostalgia for summers gone by.

Visit a Farmer’s Market. Fresh local fruits and vegetables are the cornerstone of any summer staycation menu. Our porcelain Multi-ring Garden Seat is the perfect resting spot for your repast (try them in multiples to create extra surfaces and additional seating options).

Sip Tea on a Southern Veranda. In the south, a veranda is more than a porch; it’s a complete outdoor room. Our Biscayne Collection, featuring a settee, club chair, ottoman, coffee table, and end table, creates a light yet substantial feel, anchored here by the expansive geometry of an outdoor rug.

Journey to Long Island. Your summer staycation adventure begins with a coastal vibe. Set the mood for summertime with Vintage Swimsuit I, II & III (as shown) artwork, hand-cut from a vintage-inspired Montauk paper map.


Lounge by the Lake. The Lakehouse chaise, showcased here in multiples with matching upholstered cushions, is the perfect expression of laidback chic. The 9′ Indigo Round market umbrellas add 64 square feet of sun protection.

Go Global. Let this Roseto Indigo fabric transport you to a bustling international marketplace—the kind that’s filled with one-of-a-kind finds. Our Outdoor Fabric collection consists of Sunbrella fabrics—the Roseto is coded for heavy use, which makes it perfect for outdoor upholstery.

Happy Feet! Happy Fourth!
