Kerrie Kelly South Beach Collection

Designer Kerrie Kelly’s new South Beach Collection for Coyote Outdoor Living is bringing beach vibes to the backyard. The six-piece set, featuring a loveseat, two lounge chairs, two side tables and a coffee table, exudes laidback style with a cohesive look. Here, Kelly spills on her favorite details that pull the collections together. 

Resort Style

In bringing together three collections for Coyote Outdoor Living, I wanted to be sure we shared design options for a variety of geographic areas and styles. The South Beach Collection speaks to a warm, yet sleek resort scene where casual styling meets Mid-Century Modern details. Square patterns, woven elements and clean lines offer a timeless touch when paired with neutral tones and silhouettes.

Upholstered Thoughtfully

The cushion sets on the South Beach Collection are special. So often I’m asked, “How do I put this look together?” Here, I’ve done it for you. Not only does the Sunbrella fabric beautifully complement the cushions with a contrasting .25-inch bias welt detail, the striped accent pillows with center button give the collection a thoughtful designer look. 

Pulling it All Together

The side tables give a nod to the seating elements by mimicking the metal designs. The side table details sit at the same height as those on the loveseat and chairs, while the cocktail table is larger in size but a bit understated as it is the centerpiece of the collection. All-weather gray granite-like table tops (shown here) are also framed in the metal, yet light enough to move around as your outdoor entertaining evolves.

Take a Seat

I love the lounge chairs in our six-piece deep seating set. The chairs have a casual comfort and support that also feature the woven details on the back and sides with a striped accent pillow. Whether you’re just starting your morning or wrapping up a hectic day, it’s the ideal spot to perch yourself outdoors
