Robert Allen and DwellStudio Introduce First Outdoor Collection Together

Just in time for spring, DwellStudio has collaborated with Robert Allen to launch its first collection of outdoor fabrics: Modern Bungalow.

Made with Sunbrella yarns, the collection’s bold, midcentury-inspired patterns are designed to liven up indoor or outdoor spaces

“We’re thrilled to finally bring the DwellStudio signature mix to outdoor with Robert Allen and Sunbrella,” says Christiane Lemieux, founder and creative director of DwellStudio. “We created the Modern Bungalow collection around a few centerpieces—a wild jungle foliage and a graphic silhouette—then layered in trellises, stripes and rich textured solids. We wanted a look that combined the glamour of Hollywood Regency and Palm Springs with modern pops of color.”

With a palette inspired by this midcentury aesthetic, the collection combines fuchsia and turquoise with lime green and navy in patterns featuring foliage, geometric prints, and animal motifs. Solids and more subtle patterns are designed to coordinate with these lively designs.

Some of the collection’s boldest patterns include Jungalow (above, top cushion), a bold jungle scene with the collection’s signature DwellStudio creature—a black-and-white tiger; Palmwood (above, center cushion) an outdoor interpretation of Zebra Geo, from DwellStudio’s Modern Color Theory collection; and Finmark (above, bottom cushion), a bold collage of flora and fauna available in four colorways.
