Feeling Some Outdoor Envy: Reclaimed Contempo Collection


At the moment, our patio resembles a disaster area. Bikes and scooters are strewn everywhere, with a couple of potted plants, gardening tools and a grill thrown in for good measure. Suffice it to say it’s not exactly the type of place where I’d want to sit and spend a lazy evening. The hubby insists he’ll take care of it, but I’m not holding my breath. I know there are about a million other things that are more important at the moment. I AM, however, imagining the way the space will look when it’s done. Of course, in my head it’s about three times its actual size and there would be room for a full dining set, but I digress.

I am absolutely in love with the Reclaimed Contempo patio furniture collection from Viva Terra.  It features clean lines and feels ultra industrial, but in a great way. I do wonder how comfortable it is, because it honestly looks a little stiff. But then again, a lot of wooden patio furniture looks hard, but feels comfortable. I do love the rough-hewn look of the wood, which was salvaged from old barns and farm buildings. And even better, it is made by artisans right here in the USA.

So hubby, if you’re reading this, nudge, nudge. I want a place for us to sit and snuggle when the normally oppressive Georgia heat finally gives us a break.

  • Made in the U.S.A. of reclaimed wood

Price: $429-898 through June 24, regularly $475-995 (aff)
