New Outdoor Line Makes a Case for Classic Wicker

Summertime is fast approaching, and soon it will be time to break out the deck furniture and get outdoor spaces ready for a season of al fresco activities. Designers know that when it comes to outdoor furniture, a classic look elegantly elevates a porch or poolside.

Lloyd Flanders, one of the oldest American producers of wicker furniture, is debuting a new line of modern-traditional pieces that can help deliver a timeless outdoor aesthetic. The Cayman collection features seven seat variations in a warm sandcastle beige color.

“Cayman was inspired by classic rolled-arm interior furniture, but we’ve updated it with a clean line,” explains Jess Flanders, Lloyd Flanders’s design lead and a third-generation member of the Flanders family. “We wanted to find a complementary design to the old-school look for outdoor use and make it versatile.”

The line is made with 100% virgin vinyl on an aluminum frame. Virgin vinyl is extremely hardy, with a high UV rating and resistance to wind, sun exposure, and moisture. The combination of the unique weave’s timeless look and the strength of the materials makes the Cayman collection a perfect contract option as well.

For the commercial sector, the brand carries three categories of furniture: Lloyd Loom, Woven Vinyl, and Teak. Designers who select Lloyd Loom products can choose from 20 different finishes to match any client’s color palette.  Woven Vinyl collections each have a unique, non-customizable finish.  All of the Lloyd Flanders collections have cushions available in over 500 fabrics, 167 of which are exclusive to the company’s own fabric book. They also accept COM (customer’s own material) fabric for any and all collections.

Whether outfitting a private residence or a commercial space, designers will be pleased to know that Lloyd Flanders continues to keep the tradition of excellence in wicker alive.
