Sneak Peek from California

We have been hard at work here at Classic Accessories designing completely new items for this Spring. You heard right, totally new products that we are launching in the coming weeks! We began with our highly rated Montlake Collection and have branched out into new color ways for patio cushions, patio umbrellas and patio hammocks.

Our Creative Departments have been working tirelessly to get the items ready for their debut and the latest adventure came out of California at our photo and video shoots. Check out some behind the scenes photos:








It’s hard work … getting our hammocks to look the right way in photos. Those are Heather Thomas’ toes, our Lead Production Artist here at Classic Accessories. Who wouldn’t want to relax on a warm sunny day in California … in a hammock … for work? She said that the house they were staying at was “Really a beautiful place—it was great to be reminded what sunshine felt like. There were a lot of interesting plants both in the yard and in the area. It was windy in the morning, generally cool weather in the evening, with really warm afternoons. I was surprised by the number of butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering about. Less excited to see the vultures, but there were some other large birds—none came close enough to identify, although Jake did see a turkey.”

While waiting for the morning and late afternoon golden hours, the team enjoyed all of what the villa’s outdoors had to offer from morning hikes around the Felsman Loop Trail to evening walks through the grounds. The photoshoot was taken at this home nestled at the bottom of beautiful Bishop’s Peak, located just 4 minutes away from the quaint downtown of San Luis Obispo. Our inspiration behind designing the cushions, umbrellas and hammocks is to simply enjoy more time outdoors. I think our teams did just that.

We are really excited to bring these new items to market and are thrilled to be more a part of how you enjoy your outdoors, home or away. Stay tuned!

Prepare for Guests with New Outdoor Cushions

Nothing spruces up a patio quicker than adding NEW cushions and colors. Trends are even moving towards throw pillows to add to your already existing patterns.

A break in the weather

We’ve had a break in the weather these past few days. Meaning, 60 degrees and sunny here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Yep you heard right. Sunny… in Seattle… in February!

There was just enough blue in the sky to venture out in the backyard only to find some shades of green on the neighbors beautiful patio sets. Not the Evergreen you bring up when you brag about living in the most gorgeous place on earth.

So, we thought if you find yourself with a break in the weather, why not do a little PRE-Spring cleaning in the heart of Winter? After all – the birds are chirping in the morning and the frogs are out at night – which in our neck of the woods means Spring really is right around the corner!

Grab yourself 10 minutes and a brush and you’re ready. Here’s a great source for doing a quick clean up:
