SOCO showrooms have you covered with this curated selection of new + notable furnishings and accessories that will make your outdoor living area more attractive and comfortable than ever.


The H Collection is named for the first letter of the word “hoy” – which is “today” in Spanish. Designed by Toan Nguyen, it takes a classic mix of materials for a new spin by adding enticing curves and finishes – making it fresh yet comfortable. The use of three-inch diameter rope creates a sculptural effect against the collection’s streamlined aluminum frames.


The hottest thing in fire tables, these are designed and built in-house to carry the Brown Jordan name. With simple lines and thoughtfully designed ceramic tops, the tables inspire communal gatherings year-round. Transitional lines create a livable design that is easily paired with any style of seating.

With its elegant geometric design, weatherproof powder-coated steel, and welded steel construction, The Palisade Collection at HAY kicks your outdoor game up a few stylish notches.

The Fidji Collection will transform your outdoor space into a backyard retreat. There’s an extended three-seater corner sofa that provides ample seating for entertaining. Synthetic teak paneling is elegant yet practical while a white matte aluminum frame provides the perfect backbone for comfortable seating. Plush cushions are wrapped in a high-quality, water repellent, gray mesh exterior for easy lounging. A slatted coffee table and side table offer an attractive + convenient place for beverages, and snacks.


Designer Alain Van Havre designed the gorgeous Bok Teak Outdoor Dining Table and Bok Teak Outdoor Dining Chairs with an airy shape. The rock-solid construction makes the collection timeless, featuring pieces you can enjoy for years to come. The chairs come in one size and the dining table comes in three sizes to fit almost any outdoor space: 79” x 35.5”, 98.5” x 39.5” and 118.5” x 43.5”


For the first time, this Roche Bobois best-seller – the Mah Jong Collection – is available in an outdoor version. With endless modular combinations, it puts the “fun” in functional. A metal base with a random perforated pattern supports cushions in eye-catching colors. The Mah Jong Outdoor Collection also features trays on the sides and behind the seats for holding glasses, towels, or sunscreen.
