Thank you for all of those who came to our ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of our NEW location!

New Location

Our new building is located at:
26600 72nd Ave S, Suite 101
Kent, WA 98032

7 short months ago all of us at Classic Accessories were bused over to a HUGE dirt lot with shovels in hand and excitement in the air, we broke ground on what was to become our NEW 229,276 square foot building.

Within 7 months, our building was move in ready! Our warehouse staff worked 28 straight days to move 8,231 pallets of products which took 291 semi-trailers to move! Our new office space holds over 100 full time employees with a two-floor open concept design. It’s one of the first LEED certified spaces in Kent, WA as well.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular green building certification programs used worldwide. Developed by the non-profit U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) it includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes, and neighborhoods that aims to help building owners and operators be environmentally responsible and use resources efficiently. LEED certified buildings are intended to use resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings simply built to code.

Our new location was designed with careful considerations to our in-house teams with spaces for Quality Control, Photography/ Videography Studio and an indoor/outdoor patio space (since we kind of like to walk-the-walk in that category) just to name a few.

We are excited for our new space not only because it provides our team with a better environment but how it will enhance our ability to better serve our customers, support our future initiatives and what we like to say here at Classic Accessories, to enjoy the journey.”

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!

Kayaks in the Snow

It’s the first week of January and it’s been FREEZING. Crystal clear 16 degree mornings have been the norm for awhile here in the South Seattle area. So when two of our designers got the chance to go outside today, they put on hats and gloves and ventured out to Issaquah to Kayak Academy to do some fittings.

The first thing you think of isn’t kayaking when there is left over snow on the ground? No rest for the weary, but more importantly driven, designers Jake Sornsin and Gail Foster. We were lucky to find a kayak shop open at this time of year. As we say, off season is our season and the kind folks at Kayak Adventure let us fit countless kayaks and some canoes with our new covers we have lined up this year. We always are looking to find the perfect fit and this is just one way we do it.

Although Jake’s dog Tiffany gets to stay warm while he maneuvers kayaks off their stacks onto frozen ground:

Above and beyond for these two today. I think an afternoon hot chocolate is in order.

Special thanks to Kayak Adventures for letting us visit you on this freezing winter day! Check them out for lessons and to shop all their gear at www.kayakacademy.com

Happy New Year from Classic Accessories

2016 has been such a great year for us at Classic Accessories. A year full of growth with new programs and new customers with the BEST Loyalty Program to brag about.

It’s almost funny to call this a place of work when you get to spend your creative “working” hours filled with people who constantly push the needle. Always moving forward and learning from what can be improved on. We have spent this year listening to our customers and growing our products to meet and exceed expectations. 2017 will be another growing year for us. We have BIG plans ahead and we can’t wait to share them with you and your friends and families.

May 2017 hold many delights for you to uncover and we hope to be a part of spreading joy and peace of mind with you.

From all of us at Classic Accessories – Cheers!

Welcome Fall!

It’s official, if you hadn’t noticed by all the pumpkin-colored everything, that FALL has made its grand entrance. Here at Classic Accessories, we pride ourselves in having in-house design teams that LOVE color and know how to spot trends that have shelf life between seasons and will last over the years. This season, try a new spin on the over-done shades of Fall leaves and liven things up a bit around the house with these Unexpected Fall Color Palettes from HGTV’s Brian Patrick Flynn:

They may not seem like traditional fall colors, but when we pair them with cranberry tones and deep shades of green, they shine throughout the season.

Cranberry red is the ultimate fall color. This gender-neutral tone can look formal, casual, traditional or modern depending on how it’s paired. Keep cranberry simple and understated by mixing it with greige or sand tones and accents of royal blue.

When introducing these colors into your space, keep to the 60, 30, 10 rule of Dominant, Complimentary and Accent colors and you’ll have a space that feels balanced but not too strict. Check out our colorful lines of patio and grill covers that will add itself into this Fall.
