summer favorites: sandra

rex chair aqua
I’m going with a CB2 classic modern outdoor chair—with good reason— the rex chair is incredibly comfortable, it stacks to save storage space, the aqua color is timeless and versatile and it’s a fantastic value.
edison string lights
after the harshest winter in decades, I’m looking forward to spending as much time outside as possible so I’m investing in this durable outdoor lighting to help keep everyone at the table just a bit longer—and the vintage bulbs are the perfect compliment to a 1940s summer cottage.
BSI mini surfboard
I’m thrilled that we found E-Tech Boards and Brett Whitacre to make this project happen—now if only I lived near surf! (btw, the bird was not Photoshop’d in!)

liora manne outdoor pillows
as always, designs from
Liora Manne are bold and colorful—these add a great pop to our
neutral furniture.
ray dining table
I think round tables are the perfect solution to a smaller space. This one is substantial in look and materials—and could almost live inside too.
sophia dining chairs
they’re dining chairs but I think they’re so comfortable that they could double as lounge chairs. The open weave is really fun and I love that the frame and weaving are the same color.

cube table-planter
best use of space and super versatile. I think you could even flip
it on its side and use it a third way —with battery operated candlelight
in the open space!
bergama reversible outdoor rug
simple and graphic, just the way
I like it—plus the care is effortless!
sophia chair
flexible material is super comfy to spend an entire evening with friends tasting rosé wines.

acapulco multi lounge chair
the fun bright colors will pop anywhere and fit in perfectly with
my 2-year-old outdoor furniture from CB2.

outdoor pillows
by Aelfie Oudghiri
I change my outdoor pillows out every year because they are so affordable and I love these bright modern designs that coordinate.

in memoriam: jimmy

jimmy, striking a pose, fall 2009 Jimmy was not only one of our first models—he inspired CB2 to raise awareness by featuring rescued animals in every catalog since.

After his first gig, Jimmy was “discovered” and actually went on to be a paid part-time model for JC Penney and CNA Insurance—and a total of 16 pets have been featured in our books.

Diagnosed with canine leukemia in January, he endured meds and our Chiberian winter to stay with us another 4 months—then quietly departed on May 14th, a sweet 16-year old.

He was an amazing dog with a great personality—so tidy and fastidious we used to say he was “the Tony Randall of dogs”. Jimmy was also lucky—to be part of a large and loving extended family who miss him greatly.
