Though we have some big things coming up for the cabin that are preventing full room renovations right now (lookin’ at you, flooring), we love to make small improvements here and there, so we can still enjoy the space even mid-renovation. And since we spend so much time on the deck (I mean, come on with that view), it was a no-brainer to add some comfy seating and a place to roast s’mores while watching the sunset out here.
We’ve worked with Arhaus before for a Thanksgiving tablescape last year, but honestly fell in love with their unique, high quality outdoor collection and knew it would be a great fit for the CLJ in the Woods vibe we’re going for at the cabin. We chose their Santa Barbara Outdoor Sofa in the Sail Salt upholstery. It’s so beautifully designed–I love the looser lattice weave of the base with still straight lines feels so modern-rustic.
And the upholstery is all-season (and so soft and comfortable) so it will last year after year. I kind of want another one to face this one now. We added a couple of their beautiful outdoor pillows, this black and white Dhurrie and this Alor Straw Lumbar. As with all of their furniture and decor, Arhaus utilizes sustainable materials and is committed to designing pieces that work and play, with washable slipcovers and construction made to last for generations.
We also knew we wanted to incorporate a fire feature of some kind out here, but a wood fire over a wooden deck in the middle of the woods made us nervous. We found this amazing fire table from Arhaus that can use SunJel canisters, which burn fume-free and don’t shoot off any sparks or debris that could catch neighboring brush on fire (also comes in dark grey!).
Together, they make a really cozy pair, don’t you think? A perfect spot to watch the sun set with our crew.
And although, for this post we focused on the deck, I’ve been digging through the entire Arhaus site, and I can’t stop pinning all of their cabin cozy pieces. You can see my full pin board here (with nearly 50 favorites!)–below are a few highlights.
It’s so fun for me to start putting colors and textures and pieces together for the cabin that still feel like us, but are more earthy and rustic. It’s going to be such a fun project and we can’t wait to take you along! Check out more pieces from Arhaus to decorate whatever style YOUR home is right here

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
