The Laurie Bell Company, outdoor soft goods designer, is providing accessories for Global Surroundings, manufacturer of reclaimed teak furniture.
Global Surroundings' main facility is located in Java, Indonesia, and its U.S. headquarters are in Phoenix, Ariz.
The Laurie Bell Company has selected, designed and produced Global Surroundings' cushions, pillows and accessories.
"Laurie has found a niche for integrating colorful, all-weather fabrics into creative, 'stand out from the crowd' outdoor spaces," Global Surroundings co-owner J.L. Jackson said. "Laurie also reflects our goal to attract baby boomers who are purchasing their second homes and want to go all out in terms of decorating. Her versatile, fashion-forward products are creative enough to address the needs of homeowners looking for contemporary, transitional or traditional styles."
"Customers who are creating outdoor spaces want to be comfortable in lush, deep seating in sumptuous teak as ideal for a getaway home," added Laurie Jenkins, founder and principal of The Laurie Bell Company. The advantage of teak is it's not only luxurious, but withstands harsh climate changes while preserving its elegance."
