Casually Contemporary

Courtney Mueller, Staff Staff -- Casual Living, September 15, 2005

Contemporary pieces move into the forefront as designs concentrate on clean, simple lines with no fuss. Mixed media pieces are highlighted in this group, while many products have a metallic finish or appearance. Gloster's Sushi Table is again in the spotlight as it reinterprets casual dining with a modern flair. Artisan House's 3-D art always takes style up a notch for outdoor wall decor.

 With ample seating room, Kettler's Kanto Collection lends an air of European sophistication, crafted with wrought iron and die cast aluminum arm rests. 1662

   The Sushi table from Gloster moves woven pieces away from the traditional with gently curved high back seats that tuck in to the table. 1768
 Made from Bengkirai hardwood, romantic Polynesian gazebos from Exaco will transform the back yard into a private oasis. 8-7120  
   From Brown Jordan International, a bench from the Armada Collection exudes Carribean style with a touch of the contemporary in a generous serving of teak accented by detailed legs. 1755
 The Himalayan Slate Laminate tabletop from Telescope Casual combines earthy hues with a metallic glazed look for upscale dining. 1655
