Brown Jordan, the brand of outdoor luxury furnishings, recently announced it's return to the Casual Market in Chicago, September 10-13. This year, Brown Jordan will preview two new collections, Maldives and Walter Lamb Aluminum.

To commemorate Brown Jordan’s 75th anniversary, the brand will be reissuing its memorable mid-century Walter Lamb Bronze collection with modern, elevated materials to withstand the elements. In 1947 the original design was conceived by the founders of the company, Robert Brown and Hubert Jordan in partnership with the renowned designer, Walter Lamb. Made with salvaged bronze and brass piping from sunken naval ships at Pearl Harbor, Lamb created what would become the iconic collection that catapulted the brand to the national stage. Walter Lamb Aluminum, the anniversary collection, will officially launch in 2020.

In addition to Walter Lamb Aluminum, visitors will also get a preview of the upcoming collection, Maldives. Inspired by an aura of leisure and luxury, Maldives begs to be enjoyed with its plush cushions and neutral palette. With this collection, Brown Jordan managed to give the pieces of furniture an elegant, natural teak finish complemented further by the delicate roping. Made for lounging, this line offers a variety of fixed seating including an arm chair, love seat, and ottoman to name a few. Each piece works well in a full outdoor space, including terrace, patio or deck with strong durability to endure the elements.

“We’re looking forward to previewing these very special collections for the first time,” says Stephen Elton, Chief Brand Curator at Brown Jordan. “These memorable pieces really showcase our craftsmanship and timeless design.”
