Over the past 30 years, David Francis has been using natural materials in creating exclusive indoor furniture. A total of seven vibrant outdoor collections will be introduced by the end of the year and will include both resin weaves and powder-coated aluminum, according to a company press release.

The Manhattan Collection is the al fresco version of David Francis' best-selling indoor group. Whimsical swirl patterns are repeated on all sides of a lounge chair, sofa and loveseat, available in multiple colorways.
"It was an obvious choice to enter the outdoor market with my Manhattan. It's such a fun design and well-suited for a laid-back outdoor vibe," said David Francis, chief designer.
The sleek Capri Collection is based on the contemporary form of the Manhattan, but sans swirls for a clean, contemporary design. The collection includes a lounge chair, sofa, loveseat and chaise available in several colorways.
Additionally, David Francis' Allure and Rhythm collections offer coffee and side tables to mix and match with his lounge pieces.
David Francis Furniture will show at HD Boutique, as well as High Point Market in the spring.
