{Still} hip to be square


A number of designers added curves to their contemporary outdoor furniture lines last year, but the 2008 International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market featured more blocky looks than ever before. Straight lines and right angles may be nothing new in contemporary, but consumers can't seem to get enough.

Whitecraft's Cannes lounge chair offers the familiar sleek and boxy contemporary look born out of European design houses. The high-density polyethylene, all-weather collection includes an armless sectional unit, sectional chaise unit, corner unit, end table and cocktail table.

La-Z-Boy Select's Kingswood Collection sectional and ottoman feature crisp, clean frames, patent-pending memory foam cushions and Sun Isle weave options. The collection includes tables, seating and dining pieces, including an outdoor recliner, all available in custom colors and fabrics.
