We first got to know Link Outdoor through its fabulous fabric collection—in particular the great geometric patterns that evoke midcentury glamour (Looking at them, you feel like you're being transported to a Slim Aarons photo.). Since then, we've become big fans of the company's outdoor furniture collections too. There's a great line of teak with stunning, traditional profiles, and another with more contemporary styling. The company's Echo Collection rounds out the firm's furniture options and offers a chic, sophisticated choice for outdoor living.

MASHstudios, known for their furniture collection called LAXseries, based on the specific aesthetic of Southern California, have designed a series inspired by coastal California, aptly titled PCHseries. The collection is centered around the bedroom and is constructed from ample amounts of naturally-treated solid teak and subtle aluminum. The series includes two beds, side tables, dressers and coffee tables all with the same simplicity and natural feeling.
Spanish Architecture firm A-cero has consistently produced innovative and beautiful architecture for the modern age. Headquartered on the outskirts of Madrid, A-cero is headed by Joaquin Torres, and was established in 1996. Fifteen years later, the firm has four global offices and a new furniture collaboration with Sancal.
The name of their design is Ace, and it transfers over much of the architectural modernism seen in A-cero’s buildings. There are clean lines and soft edges, but Ace is most similar to A-cero’s distinctive modular style.
