Brown Jordan is my favorite outdoor furniture manufacturer. Our love affair began years ago when I was about 27, poor as a church mouse, and coveted beautiful patio furniture. A wise neighbor who took me under her wing (and ultimately became a life-long friend) introduced me to Brown Jordan. At the time, she told me the furniture was made extremely well, and came with a guarantee. When my husband FINALLY let me buy patio furniture, we bought it at an estate sale and it was Brown Jordan strapped chairs. They could have used those puppies in the Nevada desert for A Bomb testing: you could not destroy them. I now have Brown Jordan all over my backyard.
Now comes word the talented Los Angeles designer Michael Berman is designing for BJ — giving us his version of the wing chair for the great outdoors. Looks more butterfly to me, but if it’s Brown Jordan, it’s the best.
Maybe they can get some Michael Berman for the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) Texas Chapter’s annual Silent Auction on Thursday, November 10th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Brown Jordan Showroom located at 1617 Hi Line Drive in the Dallas Design District. Ya’ll should come. Great place to find some real bargains to spruce up the home for the holidays, and proceeds benefit one of my very favorite orgs, Dwell With Dignity. The IFDA Silent Auction is complimentary and open to the public. Bidders will enjoy appetizers provided by My Fit Foods and Rockfish Seafood Grill while they browse and bid on designer furniture, home accessories, exclusive services and more. Oh and whoops, I almost forgot: I am the featured speaker talking about my favoe topic: House Porn!
