We got a lesson in loom history at Lloyd Flanders with the Lloyd loom that is still used today in all of their wicker offerings. We also loved the loom sculptures around their showroom.

Ebel is the perfect mix of modern and classic, and takes the porch swing concept to a whole new level.

The only thing better than a bar cart is an outdoor bar cart! This and the woven rocker by Klaussner Outdoor make the perfect summer patio pair.

 

About The Show

The International Casual Furnishings Association was established in 2008 as an industry association to bring all casual furnishings industry stakeholders under one umbrella – retailers, manufacturers/importers, sales representatives, designers, suppliers and media. Last week’s ICFA-hosted event was the precursor to Casual Market Chicago on September 10-13.

More on that to come!
