ShonanWilliams-Sonoma Home’s Shonan Collection provides sleek, simple furniture for any outdoor setting. This clever modern furniture uses a combination of sturdy teak wood and all-weather fabric strips to create handsome, textured chairs that fit in anywhere. Use them by the side of your pool or as seating at an outdoor dinner table. Whether your outdoor space consists of a sprawling yard or a compact deck, our Shonan Collection chairs are a fantastic choice. Minimalistic and carefully designed, these chairs are efficient in their balance of form and function. The chairs in this collection are suitable for everything from lounging to dining, so you can mix them in with dining tables and other pieces from our selection of outdoor furniture to create the ideal vignette for your space.
The contrast of woven black fabric strips with the natural wood grain of unfinished teak lends a specific sculptural beauty to these chairs. The wood is kiln-dried, so it’s ready to stand up to the elements when it needs to, but its unfinished, unlacquered quality means that it can take on a grayish patina as it ages. That means that each of your Shonan Collection chairs becomes its own, though they all have the same basic construction and features. The exposed wood grain of the teak adds earthy beauty to the clean lines and simple aesthetics of the Shonan Collection.
The overall simple style and construciton of the Shonan Collection means that these chairs pair well with almost any material, but you can still pay attention to style as you decide which furniture pieces match best. Shonan chairs have clean lines and a modern sensibility that can even create an interesting juxtaposition with outdoor furniture that has a more ornate, traditionally formal appeal. Smooth, clean lines from materials such as metal and glass also look stunning. If you don’t find contrasting materials to suit your needs, check out the other teak wood outdoor furniture pieces in our collection and see how they fit with your ideas for Shonan Collection chairs. Arrange Shonan chairs around a black powder-coated metal table, or create a seating arrangement using a teak accent table in the center. These chairs are great for mixing and matching in this way.
The fabric straps that make up the Shonan Collection’s innovative seating components are an attractive touch that adds texture and just a bit of depth to an otherwise minimalistic furniture piece. These woven fabric straps provide just the right amount of give to create a comfortable, hammock-like feeling as you relax in your chair, allowing you to feel supported and cool at the same time. The chairs have no cushions, so they’re light and easy to store indoors during the off season. The open weave and all-weather Sunbrella® fabric make these chairs excellent for seating around a pool, hot tub, lake or ocean. Able to withstand moisture from rain or from the clothing of tired swimmers coming in for a break, the Shonan Collection’s upholstery is ideal for outdoor applications.
From the poolside to the patio, Shonan Collection chairs are gorgeous in modern homes. Use your outdoor spaces’ natural beauty to their fullest extent with these chairs, which are beautiful in their own right without stealing the show. Enjoy expert craftsmanship and clever design as you reap the benefits of all-weather furniture. Bring your Shonan Collection chairs inside whenever they’re not in use or leave them outdoors so you always have a comfortable place to sit when you want some fresh air. If you plan to leave your Shonan Collection chairs and other outdoor furniture outside during an extended period of stormy weather, you may want to use a sturdy furniture cover to protect your investment and keep it in excellent condition. These chairs are so beautiful, you can delight in having them for years to come.
