It’s the perfect time of year to spend time outside, enjoying the crisp fall air and perhaps enjoying the warmth of an outdoor fireplace or firepit. Next time you’re at the grocery, be sure to scoop up some graham crackers, Hershey bars and marshmallows so you’ll be ready to make some gooey treats.

As we head toward winter, it’s also a great time to scoop up deals on outdoor furniture. Now through October 14th, the unique and sophisticated pieces from Coalesse are 15% off. What I love so much about their lines is that while they can stand up to the elements outside, they also fit right in indoors as well.

Coalesse Emu Heaven Table

For example, the woven metal mesh of the Emu Heaven Table by Jean-Marie Massaud adds gorgeous modern style to a patio, but will also add texture to an eat-in kitchen, works as an occasional table in a living room and can serve as a unique nightstand next to a king-size or California king bed.

The Emu Retrouve High Back Chair has long been a favorite of mine; the first time I saw it in a shop window my heart fluttered. Is it weird that my heart flutters over chairs? I don’t care. Its eclectic wire shape mixes things up and makes it a standout; if everything you have is all straight-lined and modern, you need a few curved elements to create juxtapositions. I nominate Retrouve.

By the way, it’s not all about outdoor furniture. While Coalesse has a lot of options for furniture that will stand up to the elements, they are also creating pieces that work for home and office and home office. These pieces make working from home feel nothing like working from a cubicle.

Coalesse Bindu Guest Chair

The Bindu Guest Chair,for example, is a chic and comfortable office chair, but also works wonderfully as a dining chair or as and occasional chair anywhere around the home.

Coalesse Denizen Side Tablet

The Denizen Side Tablet can tuck right in next to a sofa or chair and then swing across when you want some couch comfort while working on your laptop. It’s also perfect for a martini and almonds too.

March has come in like a lion but it’s time to start  thinking about outdoor spaces. Go to the garage or shed and dust off that garden furniture, figure out what you need to repair or replace, then check out the fantastic selection from Oxford Garden to fill in the gaps. The Louisville, Kentucky based company offers up styles from traditional classics to contemporary, inspired by a range of precedents from English cottage garden to Scandinavian modern.
Today we’re sitting down with the President of Oxford Garden, Randy Meek, to learn more about the brand and what they have available.

Where did the name Oxford Garden come from?
Oxford Garden began as Oxford Garden Designs and the name developed from the romantic, centuries-old English gardens that nearly always included a finely crafted sitting bench.

How did Oxford Garden come about? What are your goals for the brand?
Oxford Garden began in 1997 as the interest in outdoor living had huge growth in America and the availability of quality outdoor furniture was in short supply.  After establishing itself with high-quality wood benches during its first few years, Oxford Garden methodically expanded furniture collections, offering a wide range of items, styles and materials.
Our products are designed and produced to provide a well-styled unique visual appearance, while maintaining quality materials and workmanship.  Of equal importance is our goal to deliver these quality products at moderate prices.
How would you describe the Oxford Garden style and how does this help freshen up outdoor spaces? What inspired your current collection?
The Oxford Garden style is a refinement of comfort, shapes, simplicity and practicality.  We aim to produce outdoor furniture that is comfortable, applies practical use of materials through simplicity of design and delivers a captivating appearance.
For example, in one of our current collections, Siena Deep Seating, we use straight and simple shapes with just slight emphasis on key areas of the furniture; the subtle lines of the arms and angled legs add interest to an otherwise simple design, creating a striking and graceful piece.
Did you see a hole in the outdoor furniture market? If so, how are you filling it?
We believe we fill the narrow space where good design and practical pricing meet.
Where should homeowners begin when furnishing a patio, deck, balcony or garden?
The key question for homeowners is “What atmosphere do you want to create?” Think of space outside as outdoor rooms and work from there.
For example, some homeowners want a relaxing environment that brings their indoor living room to the outdoors. In this scenario, we would recommend a warm, comfortable conversation set such as our Siena Deep Seating group:
Others may love to entertain and desire a large dining group where they can enjoy parties and family dinners outside and need a versatile dining set such as the Travira or Hampton:
Thanks to Randy for taking the time to introduce us to Oxford Garden today!
