Casual Living was established in 1976 in Columbia,SC as the area’s first store dedicated to casual and outdoor furniture. In 1986, John Chamberlain and Dottie Reynolds purchased Casual Living and have operated it in the thirty-four years since with the help of our great team.
With extensive experience and knowledge, we are able to help our customers navigate the world of ourtdoor furniture with ease and efficiency. A thorough understanding of our products and the characteristics and limitations of each material used in the construction of outdoor furniture allows us to understand how to guide our customers in their selection of the best outdoor furniture and products for their location. We know the questions to ask so you don’t make mistakes.
With access to the leading manufacturers of outdoor furniture, the brands we carry include: Lloyd Flanders, Tropitone, Seaside Casual, Woodard, Kingsley-Bate, Hanamint, Kettler, Neille Olsen Home and Garden, Designing Fire, Oriental Weavers, Couristan, Frankford, and TUCCI Umbrellas . Each of these brands is known for their style, comfort, and durability and represents a commitment to produce quality products which will stand the test of time–and Mother Nature.
It is our honor to be associated with such respected and emulated brands and it is our honor to provide our customers access to the finest outdoor furniture made (many made proudly in the USA).
Contact us if you are looking for experts who know their product, understand the issues of outdoor maintenance, and who are versed in the finer details of outdoor decorating, such as color and design coordination. We are here to help you create the outdoor room of your dreams and to guide you to lasting satisfaction. Shop at Casual Living and see why our customers return to become our friends.
