Be Ready For Summer! Order Your Outdoor Furniture Now To Get It In Time For Patio Season

While the current frigid winter temperatures may have you feeling like summer is a lifetime away, spring is just around the corner. With warmer temperatures our attention inevitably turns toward outdoor living, but the issue many people face is that by the time they realize they want to update or furnish their outdoor spaces, it’s already too late due to the time it takes for the items to be manufactured and shipped. If you want your outdoor living space to be ready for summer, we recommend you get started now!

Extensive lead times make timing essential.

Whether you’re looking to level up your outdoor game and make a statement with the latest outdoor collection from Minotti, create an outdoor sanctuary with designs that are both durable and inspired by nature from RODA, or upgrade to iconic forever classics by Richard Schultz, they all have one thing in common – lead times. 

It can take weeks and even months from order placement for your items to arrive on your patio. The reason for this is that designer items are usually made to order. Furthermore, once an order has been placed and the product has been manufactured to your specifications, it can take another several weeks of transit time for the items to arrive, depending on where they are shipping from.

Many of our brands ship from Italy. Others, such as the famous 1966 Collection from the godfather of modern outdoor furniture, Richard Schultz, ship from the United States and will take less time.

In-stock designer options are limited, but can provide a quick turnaround time.

The exception to the rule in terms of lead times are select products from brands such as Knoll and Coro. While these are still designer items and represent the finest in craftsmanship and design, some of their products are ready-made, enabling us to stock them in anticipation of the upcoming summer season. 

Our Ready-To-Ship inventory includes a wide range of products, including outdoor and indoor furniture, lighting and accessories.

Don’t let patio season sneak up on you. Get in touch with us or shop online to get started on your outdoor plan for this summer!

QuickShip program for Saarinen table collection.

The program ensures you will receive your table within 2-6 weeks, depending on the materials and finishes you choose.

La Manufacture Now At Livingspace

Introducing our newest brand partner at Livingspace Vancouver - La Manufacture.

The je ne sais quoi of French allure meets Italian craftsmanship.

After years of dreaming about making this ambitious project a reality, CEO Robert Acouri has brought together two great figures from the creative industry, who share his passion and determination: designer Luca Nichetto, Art Director at La Manufacture, and fashion consultant Milena Laquale, Head of the Fashion Collection.

Wallpaper* Magazine - The Bonetti II House

Battersby Howat Architects’ villa in West Vancouver brings together quiet luxury and lush landscapes.

West Vancouver’s Bonetti II Residence came about when a long-term friend and business associate asked architects David Battersby and Heather Howat to design his new Vancouver house.

The duo not only took the opportunity to craft a contemporary family home that elegantly straddles glamour and modesty, they also had the chance to conceive the house as a 21st-century interpretation of West Coast modernism. Sympathetically bridging the built and the natural.
