In this post, I’d like to share the story of Brown Jordan’s Kantan collection – a design that has truly stood the test of time. Best known for its innovative architecture, Kantan received its first ever design award at Chicago Market in1956. It won the same award 56 years later when Kantan Brass, featuring innovative Sumbrella Suncloth lace, was released in 2012. Over the years, Kantan has grown into three collections totaling 26 pieces. We’ve introduced new finishes, new fabrics, and additional pieces – all while maintaining the mid-century modern look and feel of the original collection. Kantan has even been featured on AMC’s hit TV show, Mad Men.
September has always been one of my favorite months, as it marks the time of year that we introduce new outdoor collections, expanded product portfolios, new finishes, and new fabric textures and colors! In this post, I’d like to share some of the outdoor furniture trends we are introducing for Brown Jordan, as well as highlight some of our new product additions for 2018, including our exciting new Softscape Collection, designed by John Caldwell.
