CNN —  

Our worlds shrank so much in 2020 that you could be forgiven for thinking that the favorite places you’ve ever been to — from wicker-laden, weathered East Coast beach houses to plush riverside balconies in Portugal to the sun-soaked angles of a desert hideaway — might actually have been figments of your imagination. But thanks to their impeccable global design sense, artisan-crafted quality and devotion to sustainable living, Arhaus is ready to give you back the world — and you won’t have to walk farther than your own backyard to find it.

With a number of new collections to turn your home into little slices of your favorite escapes from around the globe, Arhaus is committed to helping you reimagine your patio, yard or poolside lounging area as the retreat of your dreams, an idyllic place to relax with family, friends or just by yourself.

Since 1986, Arhaus has been making the highest-quality indoor and outdoor furniture with an eye toward timeless, globally inspired design and unique statement pieces for discerning clientele. Its designers travel the world looking for the best every culture has to offer. It’s also been dedicated to being a sustainable business, recycling materials that would otherwise go to waste — like turning copper into tabletops and tree roots into chairs — refurbishing forgotten antiques and refusing to source material from endangered rainforests. But all that doesn’t mean that Arhaus has forgotten that furniture’s primary function is your comfort — so every piece isn’t just gorgeous, it’s also engineered to be practical and easy to use. Slipcovers are simple to wash, hidden leaves let you expand your space as needed and everything is made to last for generations — these will be pieces your grandkids will be putting up their feet and unwinding on.

For 2021, Arhaus has crafted hundreds of new products, bringing the most beautiful and restful places in the world right to your yard. The Montauk Collection takes handwoven, all-weather wicker and fashions it into sloping arms, polished lines and soft lines that’ll have you hearing the oceans crashing against the sand by your Hamptons hideaway as you sip on a hot cup of coffee in your Cole Swivel Chair and nestle into the new Seaside Pillow.

Or are you more of a dry-heat sun worshipper? The Canyon Collection evokes mesas and arroyos with its straight lines, solid teak and Sunbrella canvas. The Canyon Coffee Table is a masterful centerpiece of any outdoor space, and you can spend even the sunniest days taking your iced tea outside there (served from a Delgado pitcher) under the shade of the new Octagon Border Umbrella.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Melbourne Swivel Chair brings a pleasant plumpness to your daily chill-out session. Its juicy knit upholstery is cozy and plush, and pairs nicely with the rounded softness of the Porto Four-Piece Sectional (inspired by a sun-soaked trip to Portugal) or contrasts strikingly with the sleek concrete base and terrazzo or faux marble circular tabletop of the Edgewater Collection.

Still not sure what your at-home getaway should look like? Arhaus offers Complimentary Design Services. One of its in-house design consultants will take a look at the space you want to transform, work within your personal style and come up with suggestions for a new look for any part of your home, inside or out. And you can do it by phone call, video conference or even email — no need to arrange a visit or worry about social distancing.

One of the rare things to be thankful for this past year is that we’ve all found new incentives to re-create our homes and realize that paradise doesn’t have to be a plane ride away. Your favorite getaway can be the one you escape to every day — and Arhaus will take you there.
