For those keeping tabs at home, it's now just a matter of days until the official first day of spring. You're not alone if you've got a countdown going until warmer weather officially arrives, and soon enough it'll be time to gather all your greatest friends together to celebrate spring (and then summer's) sweet arrival. And what better way to prepare for the upcoming season spent outdoors than by outfitting your space with West Elm's Playa Collection — it's sleek, earth-conscious, and currently on sale.
At this point, everyone's ready for the warmer weather to arrive — including go-to home furnishings store West Elm. In anticipation of the changing seasons, the brand recently introduced its latest outdoor living collection (aptly named the Playa Collection) and it's the perfect edition to your outdoor entertaining space. The collection boasts several Scandinavian design-inspired pieces that are essential for creating organic, stylish spots for outside lounging, and they just so happen to be earth-friendly to boot.
Each of the sleek, clean-lined pieces from the Playa Collection are crafted from eucalyptus and mahogany wood that's certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as sustainably sourced, so you can rest easy on your new outside sectional with the knowledge that Mother Earth's resources aren't being unnecessarily depleted. The thoughtfully-harvested wood is also kiln-dried to prevent warping due to wet-weather exposure, and treated with a water-based finish in a sun-drenched shade that can work alongside just about any design aesthetic.
The seating pieces, like the Playa Outdoor Reversible Sectional, usually priced at $1,399 but currently cut to $1,119, are outfitted with loose, reversible cushions with zip-off covers for easy maintenance. And the neutral-hued cushions are water-resistant too, which means you won't have to drag them inside when the forecast predicts spring showers or you need to run the sprinklers. Snag the sectional with the collection's coordinating coffee table, currently down to $319, and you'll be set for summer sunset cocktail gatherings all season long.
Or if you love to entertain dinner guests al fresco, shop the sleek Expandable Dining Table and Benches Set, usually $1,997 but down to $1,597 while its on sale. When expanded, the simply-stylish table can comfortably seat up to eight friends and family — which is great when the daytime pool party turns into a long, luxuriating dinner.
