Jensen Outdoor Wins Top Awards at Casual Market

At this year’s Casual Market Chicago, the International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA) recognized the allweather Tempo Collection from Jensen Outdoor with the Lillian B. Westchester “Best of Show” and the “Lilly” Design Excellence Awards. Jensen Outdoor, known for bringing the best of quality and design to sustainable outdoor wood furniture, was recognized among its peers for “Best of Show” in product design excellence for its all-weather and all-out comfortable Tempo deep seating collection.

This competition distinguished the top product innovations in 10 furniture categories for quality, color, and comfort, as well as creativity and marketability. Jensen Outdoor stood out for design excellence in the Lounge Seating with Cushion category as the recipient of the Design Excellence Award for the Tempo All-Weather Lounge Chair. Responding to the desire for carefree outdoor comfort, designers Edi and Paolo Ciani brilliantly blended a contemporary Italian aesthetic, element-enduring materials, and plush cushions dressed in water-resistant Ultrafabrics performance fabrics to bring Tempo to life.

The water-shedding performance of Tempo allows the collection to remain outside without having to bring the cushions indoors. Allowing deep seating to weather the elements without worry is a first in the casual industry. By selecting Ultrafabrics performance cushions, which are known in the commercial and marine industries for overall comfort and water-resistance, Jensen Outdoor was able to achieve this milestone for outdoor furniture.
