Having a fabulous and functional outdoor living space in Southern California is par for the course, of course.
As a frequent host, but also a serious Virgo (ultra-organized, clean freak, perfectionist), I never in the past had a good relationship with outdoor furniture. The process of constantly covering everything, then uncovering (and where to even put the covers when not in use is a whole other conversation), was all too much work and dust for my practical brain.
I discovered Outer recently after noticing their unparalleled technology with their patented OuterShell, which is a cover that is actually attached to the sofa cushion and rolls over the sofa when not in use, and rolls and tucks back behind the cushion when in use. See for yourself in my image above!
Aside from its extreme comfort and excellent, top top top tier quality, the company prides itself on sustainability. Each chair is made of approximately 100 plastic bottles! And the furniture is 100% recyclable.
I infused Moroccan outdoor pillows and floor pillows from Society6 to enhance the colors of our outdoor space. The color explosion feels natural for our family-- as we always associate bright colors with happiness!
The white sturdy plastic rocking horses are from the Amazon Basics collection and they stack and store easily when not in use by the kiddos!
I finished the space with an outdoor washable rug from Ruggable and stackable tables from NewMade LA. The stackable tables are perfect for hosting because they can be easily moved to accommodate a guest sitting anywhere on the Outer sofa.
