Hello and welcome to this new corner of our website, our blog! We wanted a space where we can let you know what's going on with us and share our outdoor living stories, ideas, and inspiration. This will help us deliver on our promise to help you live better, outdoors.
It has been an exciting year already filled with lots of changes, and the arrival of spring marks more changes, along with the true start of the outdoor living season. The biggest news for us has been our move from Los Angeles, where we've been managing our Pasadena showroom, to the Bay Area, where we've been looking to open a retail space for some time. We arrived to San Francisco in December, and after a lot of searching, found the most charming space in Tiburon on Ark Row. We've spent the last few months building the shop into a welcoming and inspiring space for all things outdoor. We held our Grand Opening reception on March 30th and had an amazing weekend meeting customers and showcase everything we'd been working on. As part of the new retail space, which we are calling Ajna Living Outpost, we are also expanding our product line to include a greater variety of outdoor furnishings and decor. We are so excited to offer not only our signature collection of lounges and sectionals, but also collections from Fermob, Palecek, Paradise People, and more. So many of our customers ask us for dining sets, which is why we are so excited to be offering the fun and colorful collection from Fermob. If you're not familiar with their story and products, you can discover more on their website here: https://www.fermob.com/en/
Although we enjoy mild weather year-round in California, we do feel the onset of spring with longer days, warmer weather, and of course signs of life in the plant and animal world. A walk through Golden Gate Park brings incredible sights of cherry blossoms, and even baby owls! We were incredibly lucky to happen upon a nesting pair of Great-Horned Owls in the park, and be able to spot their young in the nest. The cycles of nature are truly incredible to watch and be a part of. With these longer days we are also thinking of more outdoor gatherings with friends and family, since those extra hours of sunshine allow us to have those backyard moments after work or on the weekend. We hope that with this turn of seasons and the return to longer days, you are finding more time to get outside and reconnect with nature.
Cheers and happy spring!
