Ayca Stiffel, Senior Interior Designer, is all about chic, streamline, and innovative pieces. She's filling us in on a few of her favorite outdoor sofas that are modern, modular, and multifunctional.

"Modular seating offers full adaptability. These sofas can easily be maneuvered for different seating options - from face to face or side by side seating, armless units, loveseats, and sectionals. The options are endless!"

"Teak has always been my first choice when looking for outdoor furniture. It just never goes out of style and is super durable and weather-resistant! It has natural oils that repel water, keeping the wood from warping, cracking, or becoming brittle (perfect for Texas weather). There are so many styles out there, but I will always love those elegant pieces with interesting shapes. To me, being outdoors is my happy place and I think the furniture should reflect that." - Isabel Sarria, Lead Interior Designer

Lead Interior Designer, Jenni Warsitz, is currently loving the mixture neutrals with chic architectural pieces.

"These sofas and sectional pieces are unique and modern! They are designed with steel, aluminum, and teak - which I love! They have sleek, linear lines and modular components that offer versatility and durability."

"I love color! I've recently been obsessed with colorful garden stools. They're fun and durable! And the outdoor pillows from Elaine Smith's latest collection are amazing!! These pieces are a subtle way to add color, patterns, and personality to your outdoor spaces."
