Outdoor entertaining with style

Hosting an outdoor party on the balcony or in the backyard has often involved a run to the big-box store for utilitarian paper goods and plastic plates, and setting the table with a mishmash of random bowls and tea lights.

But this summer there’s a range of decor and serveware with the more sophisticated look and feel of indoor-quality goods – part of a growing trend toward blurring indoor/outdoor decor lines.

“Outdoor spaces should really be thought of as an extension of your living room, and that definitely applies to entertaining,” said Kara Smith of SFA Design, a bicoastal luxury design firm. “The furnishings should be as approachable as the interior, so that guests feel comfortable.”

A look at some of what designers and retailers are offering:

Article.com has a teak and powder-coated-steel dining table with midcentury modern/industrial style that could live indoors as well as out. The Bali pendant light looks like rattan, but is really hardy, woven synthetic fiber; a weatherproof rubber insulates the power cord.

Anthropologie’s new outdoor collection includes a woven, natural, blue-and-white rattan bar cart, table and chairs that evoke a chic French outdoor café. Here too, British designer Tracey Boyd’s Twill and Atlas ceramic side tables, with interesting geometric patterns.

Digital printing and improved materials and manufacturing are giving us wonderful new indoor/outdoor rugs that are a far cry from the slippy, cheap-looking plastic mats of a few years back.

Frontgate has the hip, geometric color-block Halia rug that’s colorfast and stain-resistant. Yet the hand-tufted, looped pile makes for a soft, plush feeling underfoot. Also here, a sea green and blue abstract design rug inspired by a slice of agate. Extending the mineral theme: a Palm Springs-style dining table crafted of Brazilian blue quartz on a sleek steel base. Or evoke the British West Indies with the Montserrat dining chair, inspired by traditional wing chairs but built of cast aluminum and outdoor-worthy woven materials and finishes.

One of the biggest trends in outdoor decor, and a boon to al fresco home entertaining, is deep, comfortable seating. We’re seeing roomy sofas and chairs with all the style and finish chops of indoor furniture.

RH Modern has the Balmain collection, designed by Australian brothers Harrison and Nicholas Condos. Inspired by the lines of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the modern, minimalist pieces include sofas, swivel chairs and ottomans, with either teak or aluminum frames, and can be custom-covered in hundreds of performance-grade fabrics.

Another chic option at RH Modern: the Positano chair. Milan-based Toan Nguyen created a contemporary twist on basket-weave with an oversize, woven teak frame that makes a comfy lounger for an entertaining-oriented outdoor space.

Anchoring the outdoor entertainment zone with furniture and a rug is important, but don’t forget lighting.

Lamps Plus has a chandelier with a weathered-zinc finish and a trio of seeded-glass shades for a soft illumination.

At Uttermost, find a collection of hand-carved slate and hammered copper indoor/outdoor table lamps by designer Carolyn Kinder of St. Petersburg, Fla.

Tableware is another area where manufacturing advancements have led to higher quality outdoor products.

Los Angeles-based Merritt has a collection of marble-printed dinnerware that closely resembles the real thing, with heft and pattern depth we haven’t associated with melamine before. A botanical print edged with a bamboo motif has the look and feel of fine china.

World Market has acrylic highball glasses that look like cut crystal, and there are elegant champagne and wine glasses here too.

“One of the best parts of summer is the chance to do some outdoor entertaining,” said Todd Childs, assistant homes editor at Southern Living magazine. “Give your dining room the summer off. Invite some friends over and take the fun outside.”

East Coast Wings + Grill Opens First Virginia Location – PR Newswire

Known for its wide variety of Buffalo wings, East Coast Wings + Grill offers nationally award-winning wing sauces that are mixed to order with the freshest ingredients. Inspired by different cultures—The Islands, Tex Mex, Classic American, Asian, Southern BBQ, European, Bayou and more—at East Coast Wings + Grill, community members can enjoy dozens of flavors of chicken wings and choose from eight heat intensities, resulting in hundreds of possible combinations that can be added to most entrees and of course, wings. While wings remain a staple, the restaurant’s menu also includes delicious burgers, flatbreads, skillets, salads and more.

The new restaurant is the first foray into restaurant ownership for longtime Lynchburg residents Mike and Leah Morrell. Both originally from Tennessee, the Morrells married and moved to Lynchburg in the early 1990s. Mike worked in the commercial nuclear fuel industry at AREVA for 26 years, and Leah continues to work at BWXT as a Manager of Environmental Protection and Industrial Safety. The Morrells always dreamt of having a business of their own and found East Coast Wings + Grill when Leah was dining with her brother at the Johnson City, Tenn. location. Five years later, they are opening their first restaurant and plan to open additional locations in Virginia.

“After finding the opportunity about five years ago, we bought the East Coast Wings + Grill rights in 2017. It is rewarding to see it finally manifest and become a reality,” said Mike Morrell. “Having lived in Lynchburg for almost 30 years, Leah and I understand the market and know that the community members will love the food. From wings to burgers to flatbreads to mac + cheese skillets, there is something on the menu for everyone.”

The Morrells will be hosting a grand opening celebration in which free wings for a year will be awarded to the first 75 guests in addition to other door prizes during the all-day event. More details to come.

The Lynchburg East Coast Wings Grill is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m.9 p.m. For more information contact the restaurant at (434) 616-6297 or visit http://www.eastcoastwings.com.

Redesign your home with used items from Goodwill

PHOENIX – If you’re looking to transform your house, you can make your home feel like it’s completely renovated without the demolition. All you’ll need to find are gems from Goodwill.

Realtor and designer James Judge has completed over 100 homes in seven years. Judge told us that he focuses on making the house feel like a home. That best part is, he decorates on a dime! He’s a smart shopper!

He got a leather sofa for $25, a Crate and Barrel chair for $5, unique, clear bar stools for $7, mirrors for less than $8, a table for $10 and so much more! The chair didn’t have legs, so he invested $40 in attaching legs to it. In just one room, counting the decorations and all the furniture, he spent a total of $200, maybe less! That’s impressive!

Judge shared that you just need to get creative! He showed us some chairs he found when he went dumpster diving. He refinished them, and they look brand new! He also made a custom headboard with a free leather cushion and two men’s belts nailed to the wall. In total, he invested about $80 to make the focal point of the room really stand out.

Lea Graham from Goodwill told us that you’ll find deals at all of their locations every day. Follow the color tags. Whatever color is displayed has a corresponding discount attached! On Saturday, enjoy the 50% off sale! Click here to see the schedule, and find a location near you. 

These tips aren’t just for staging. They’re great for freshening up your forever home!

TVS Unveils Titan Duo Induction Cookware

In honor of its 50th anniversary, TVS is bringing its new Titan Duo Induction cookware to the market. According to the company, the collection is dedicated to induction ranges but will offer the same performance on all heat sources. 

Titan Duo Induction cookware, according to the company, ensures faster heating on induction and maximum flatness for the pan bottom, thanks to a TVS patent that includes the application of two steel discs – one inside and the other outside the aluminum body, keeping the bottom ultra-flat, even while heating, to ensure maximum stability and optimum heat transmission.

Cookware that is perfect for lengthy cooking processes and fitted with handles that have double attachment points, designed by Takahide Sano, which, while enhancing the full range, also provide even more stability and durable use, said TVS.

The line is currently available and includes two frying pans, two two-handle pans and a wok.
