A Thanksgiving Spent Outdoors

The Holiday season has found us once again, cue the comfort food and family time. As we embark on the last and busiest two months of the year it is important to remember to slow down and enjoy time with those we love. After spending the Holiday outdoors last year and the simplicity that comes with casual outdoor dining, we are back this year with another guide on how to make the most of an afternoon spent dining outside the formal dining room.

If there is one thing to love about dining in the outdoors, it's the simplicity and laid-back ambience of setting the table outside. Decorations are less of the focus as the fresh air is plenty refreshing. Light some candles, lay out your low fuss place settings, and add a fresh cut vase of flowers. Ta-da! Your table is set. Read along for classic recipes, table settings and lounge area inspiration.

Simple and chic.

This table setting sourced from Instagram features bestselling pieces from the Provence Collection. A Collection that is guaranteed as timeless and ready for many years of outdoor dining enjoyment. With simple styling you can easily achieve a truely classic look. Below we picked the perfect recipe to pair with this table setting, old-fashioned garlic mashed potatoes, sure to be a crowd favorite for Thanksgiving Day.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

 
A coastal Holiday. 

Jettset Farmhouse knows a thing or two about southern decorating, add a screened-in porch for that Florida heat and this dining setting is 100% foolproof. Featuring pieces from both the Havana and Coastal Teak Collection's, this picture perfect porch will surely please the family. In true Southern fashion, we added a 5 star green bean casserole recipe that everyone will love, even the kids!

Comfort food, comfort clothes & comfort club chairs.

Once the food-coma sets it, it's time to retreat from the table and find yourself a comfortable chair to relax in. As shown below, the Venice Club Chair situated around a sleek fire table is the ideal place to spend the next couple hours chatting with family members and just maybe catching a few z's too. For more dining and lounging inspiration visit our Pinterest page.

We always look forward to the Holiday season, as time spent with friends and family is something to be thankful for. As 2021 winds down we recall upon how busy of a year it has been, and are reminded of what an incredible support system we have. We thank you all for your patience and understanding and wish you a comfortable and relaxing Holiday with your loved ones.

The 2022 Colors of the Year

It's that time of year again! As Sherwin-Williams, Behr, Valspar and more release their picks for the 2022 Color of The Year, we are already dreaming up the endless possibilities to bring these new shades into our life. 

Here's the line-up so far and how we plan to incorporate them into our own #SWstyle.

1. Sherwin-Williams, Evergreen Fog.

Evergreen Fog applied to the exterior of an home by Sherwin-Williams.

As one of the most highly anticipated Color of The Year releases, Sherwin-Williams is considered an industry leader in their trend setting decisions. This year they chose Evergreen Fog as the 2022 color, a softer and more subtle hue in comparison to the bright and vibrant jewel-tone shades of the past. Everything about this color exudes rest and relaxation, and we are here for it. 

Incorporating this color into your existing interior or exterior living space is almost effortless, blending seamlessly with almost any of our Sunset West collections for a completely fresh and inspiring transition into The New Year. Here are our top product picks that we think would look the best when paired with this color.

Pietra Club Chair in Sunbrella Canvas Spa, see full collection here.

Redondo Club Chair in Sunbrella Canvas Spa, see full collection here.

2. Valspar and 12 nature-inspired hues.


Lilac Lane, Mountain River, and Blanched Thyme by Valspar.

Instead of committing to just one color, Valspar released an entire color palette for 2022, all drawing inspiration from the outdoors. These options allow you to mix and match and incorporate as many or as few options into your life as you would like. Personally, we love the Grey Suit, Subtle Peach and Fried Earth, all which can be viewed here. With endless opportunities to style these colors with Sunset West collections, here are our top two product choices.

3. Breezeway by Behr.

Breezeway by Behr applied to a front door.

Talk about a fresh breeze, this might be a personal favorite when it comes to the 2022 Color of The Year options. Behr describes this shade as "a relaxed and uplifting sea glass green expressing peace and tranquility for forward movement", something we all could use a little bit of after another busy year. Styling this color is just as effortless as it looks, here is what we suggest.

Dana Wing Chair in Sunbrella Dupione Celeste, see full collection here.

Havana Club Chair in Sunbrella Dupione Celeste, see full collection here.

4. Guacamole by Glidden.

Guacamole by Glidden, because who doesn't love avocados?

Unexpected but surprisingly playful, this fresh green is inspired by - yup, you guessed it, guacamole! Turns out this color can be more than just your favorite food. Glidden describes this color as having "organic energy" and balances bold with calm. We love a good design challenge, and this color choice offers plenty of opportunity for creative curating. Here is what we would pair with this color.

 

Laguna Club Chair in Sunbrella Canvas Fern, see full collection here.

 

Monterey Club Chair in Sunbrella Canvas Spa, see full collection here.


With endless options to start off The New Year fresh, we look forward to adjusting our interior and exterior living spaces to feature new trends and Colors of The Year while keeping a classic look.

Casual Market Chicago September 2021 Recap

Last week Sunset West welcomed visitors to our showroom at Casual Market Chicago for the September 2021 show.

During the Market, we showcased new 2021 introductions, including the already popular Redondo curved sofa. The showroom space houses best sellers, including Sunset West legacy pieces and some rising stars from recently introduced lines. We also had the opportunity to meet with existing customers and partners to discuss the many challenges facing our industry, taking the time to celebrate influential industry members, as well as the unsung heroes and our incredibly important support and Customer Service staff. 


The new for 2021 Redondo Curved Sofa styled with the Milano Armless Club Chair and Round Pouf from The Bazaar.



The theme for the week was grounded in a mutual thanks for everyone's support as the industry continues down a rocky road. Taking the time to connect with these individuals re-installed many people's confidence and support for each other as we endure through these uncertain times together. 


The Bali Fire Bowl looks even better in real life! Styled with the Dana Collection wing club chair, end table and club chair.



With the fall season underway and only a short few months to go until 2022, we are excited to navigate the ever-changing industry with a solid support team and community of retailer's and designer's who trust in us as much as we trust in them.

Thank you for reading along and keeping up with industry news. We are already looking forward to connecting with you at the next Chicago Market!
