#CelebrateOutdoors Beach Party

To kick off a summer of entertaining and to celebrate our new Outdoor Collections, we hosted a #CelebrateOutdoors Summer Party last month in lovely Santa Monica, California. Our guests were welcomed to a bright, airy living area and a festive outdoor space in a historic Spanish colonial beach house (previously owned by silver screen legend Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.), tailor-made for a perfect summer soiree.
