Three designers—Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Mark D. Sikes and Ann Marie Vering—join forces with big-name brands to usher in the newest crop of lust-haves in outdoor furniture, rugs and bedding.
MARK D. SIKES FOR ANNIE SELKE Mark D. Sikes already boasts signature lines of lighting, rattan, fabric, rugs and tabletops, so his first foray into bedding with Americana textile and home decor mainstay Annie Selke is a natural next step. Dubbed Coast to Coast, the collection references Sikes’ widespread interior design projects, which keep him dashing cross-country regularly, and is made to seamlessly meld styles from Malibu cool to Hamptons chic. “It’s all about how to mix East and West Coast looks,” says Sikes. “The East Coast’s traditional checks, stripes and florals mix with the West Coast bohemian paisleys, embroideries and batiks.” And don’t miss the rugs. The one named for Big Sur is a particular favorite of the designer. Clive Daniel Home, 1351 NW Boca Raton Blvd., Boca Raton
The Mark D. Sikes for Annie Selke’s Fairfield duvet cover, $568, is awash with color.
MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD FOR HARBOUR OUTDOOR Aussie brand Harbour Outdoor knows furniture, and by linking up with Martyn Lawrence Bullard for its premier collaborative collection, it upped its offerings luxuriously high. The streamline pieces nod to the work of midcentury masters. “Although inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the line has a very modern feel that is easily worked into a transitional space,” Bullard says. “These pieces are investments that supersede fashion and fad.” Also, sustainable fabric, organic materials and responsibly harvested A-grade plantation teak from Indonesia were used in most of the line. “I love being as ‘green’ as possible; it’s not the easiest task, but one I’m crusading to make a reality,” says Bullard.

Standouts among Harbour Outdoor’s MLB collection are these teak lounge chairs, $1,996 each.
ANN MARIE VERING FOR BROWN JORDAN A deep dive into the Brown Jordan archives yielded the source elements for Ann Marie Vering’s sophisticated Oscar collection. Specifically, another big collab set the tone: that of innovative midcentury architect Walter Lamb, whose 1948 Bronze collection for Brown Jordan utilized salvaged rope, brass and copper tubing from sunken Pearl Harbor ships. “Lamb used rope way before it was ‘cool,’” notes Vering. “I wanted to celebrate it and reintroduce it to the company.” For the distinct twisted-rope look, Vering pulled inspiration from hanging baskets at international flower markets. The collection’s name is another nod to florals—specifically, the Oscar tulip. Brown Jordan, Design District, Miami
Ann Marie Vering’s Oscar collection armchairs, $995 each, pair perfectly with the Oscar dining table crafted from ultracompact Dekton, from $4,995.
