An Outdoor Collection Inspired by California Hot Rod Culture
View Slideshow

Urban outdoor furniture design company Ilan Dei Venice is back at it with a new collection of furniture that was inspired by the 1950s and 1960s hot rod culture in Southern California. The Cruiser Collection, as with all of their products, is designed and manufactured in Venice, California, and will make spending time outdoors that much more enjoyable this summer.


The collection is made up of five pieces: a teacart, a hanging loveseat, a freestanding loveseat, a lounge chair, and planter. The pieces are made of a combination of aluminum, steel, and fiberglass to withstand the blazing hot temperatures and rainy days of summer.


For the first time ever, Ilan Dei Venice has developed a line of soft goods, called Shoreline, that complement the Cruiser Collection perfectly. Shoreline consists of colorful outdoor pillows and an umbrella.


The Shoreline Collection is made of durable, water-repellant material so you can rest easy if it happens to rain and you left everything outdoors.
