Summer officially started two days ago and along with it comes great new outdoor pieces from Vastu.
Whether or not you want to spend any time outside in the awesomely oppressive heat and humidity is up to you… If you’re brave enough to face the elements, however, you might as well fill your outdoor living spaces with beautiful outdoor furniture.
As we announced yesterday, Vastu is now an authorized Flos dealer and one of the cool things to come from this internationally-renowned lighting company is the Flos outdoor line.
With floor lamps, pendants, wall lighting and sconces, and even path lights, we now have the products to (safely) illuminate your patios, terraces and decks.
We first learned of Knoll’s acquisition of Richard Schultz in February and have eagerly anticipated the official release and it’s finally arrived. In addition to our other great outdoor lines, the pieces from Richard Schultz are as beautiful as they are functional for outdoor use. In a variety of styles, materials colors and textures, we are pleased to be able to offer you these amazing designs.
We’ve been busy adding other outdoor lines to our website as well, including one from a leading French outdoor furniture manufacturer, so if you haven’t been to our website in a while definitely check it out soon!

Earlier this month, Knoll announced that it had agreed to acquire famed outdoor furniture manufacturer Richard Schultz Design.
“The acquisition of Richard Schultz reflects our ongoing interest in remixing our business with high design, high margin specialty offerings which appeal to both commercial buyers and consumers worldwide”, said Knoll CEO, Andrew Cogan.
Richard Schultz has made classics such as the Petal Collection,
and continues to create great outdoor designs like the Fresh Air Chair.
It’ll be exciting to see when Knoll will add Richard Schultz products to their own offerings (and whether Vastu will have access through our relationship with Knoll). You’ll be the first to know, one way or the other!
