Room & Board launches first outdoor kitchen collection – Casual News Now
Room & Board and Room & Board Business Interiors, the home furnishing brand’s commercial arm, introduce the inaugural launch into the outdoor kitchen market with three new contemporary products.
Featuring storage cabinets, islands, bar counters, and pre-configured kitchen sets, Room & Board’s expertise in modern and durable design is entering a booming industry. With exclusive design partnerships with Loll Designs and Sielaff, the new outdoor kitchen products optimize outdoor space and serve as sustainable, practical, and maintenance-free solutions for commercial and residential spaces.
“The evolution to outdoor spaces is a result of the way we want to live and work,” explains Elise Nicpon, Director of Business Customer Experience at Room & Board Business Interiors. “Our 2023 sustainability framework is better products, better people, and a better planet. This new launch, with our valuable eco-conscious partners, achieves all three.”
Room & Board’s partnership with Loll Designs, a leader in eco-friendly outdoor furniture, continues with the new Granger Outdoor Kitchen line. Designed exclusively for Room & Board, Loll utilizes recycled materials to make long-lasting, maintenance-free outdoor furniture. The Granger products are a part of Loll’s Material Reutilization Program, offering businesses a circular furnishings option when shopping with Room & Board Business Interiors.
“As a company striving for unique designs and a truly green quality product, it was evident that Room & Board Business Interiors shared those same values,” says Eric Swanson, President of Loll Designs.
The high-quality, durable, and sustainable Granger line includes the Granger Kitchen Island, a versatile workspace available in 24” and 48” widths with fixed open shelving for communal spaces. Complimenting the functional island, the Granger Outdoor Storage Cabinet boasts ample closed storage, designed with two sliding front doors and adjustable interior shelving.
Crafted in the U.S. from exceptionally resilient materials, the high-density polyethylene is non-porous and waterproof. Colors and UV stabilizers are mixed into recycled plastic by experienced artisans to minimize fading. Combining the two product building blocks, the pre-configured Granger Outdoor Kitchen Sets create a robust outdoor environment in sleek modern colors such as putty, grey, and black.
Also new in 2023 is Room & Board’s Parsons Outdoor Counter Table – an inspired pairing of the iconic Parsons table and elegant outdoor contract grade materials. Handcrafted domestically in Wisconsin by Sielaff, the linear counter is designed to withstand all weather conditions with a structurally simplistic appeal.
Available now in seven sizes including narrow open shelving for bar stools. The hand-welded frame utilizes partially recycled materials in eleven outdoor-rated options including stainless steel, graphite, and onyx glass. Contemporary surface tops range from marbled white quartz to mesabi black granite, sure to withstand the exterior elements.
