And just like that..., we're halfway through summer! Now, if you are not already perched poolside or sprawling in the best outdoor furniture, Sarah Jessica Parker is here to change all of that.
As you might have heard, back in April, the 56-year-old icon teamed up with an outdoor furniture brand – releasing the Novogratz xo SJP collection – the retro-inspired line of our dreams. The four-piece collaboration sold out almost immediately, but fortunately for us all: it's now back in stock.
Aligning with Parker's impeccable signature style, every lounger, umbrella, and bar cart has been designed in an array of colorful, quirky patterns. With each sure to earn Carrie Bradshaw's stamp of approval, we recommend investing in these four items below – and do so before they sell out again.
Sarah Jessica Parker x Novogratz: 4 best buys
1. Travel in style with this set of folding chairs
Novogratz xo SJP: Priscilla Folding Chair (Set of 2) for $119, at Novogratz
Designed from durable, weather-resistant white powder-coated steel, shoppers can pick their choice of three different striped variations when it comes to this set of two folding chairs, making sitting in style convenient as ever.
2. Stay fully covered with this fashionable umbrella
Novogratz xo SJP Collection: Connie Outdoor Umbrella for $219, at Novogratz
Hard-pressed to find an umbrella better than this. Relaxed at the perfect angle bearing, and featuring fashionable, scalloped edges (for full coverage), the Connie umbrella is sure-win to be a fan favorite.
3. Comfortably bask in the sun in this chic chair
Novogratz xo SJP Collection: Connie Outdoor Chaise Lounge for $579, at Novogratz
Perfect for playtime or catching some sun, this lounger offers a bold base — in either aqua or haze — sitting one person to supremacy. Add in the printed striped pillow, and cover to keep the rain at bay; this chair ranks at the top of our must-have list.
4. A versatile cart that offers both indoor and outdoor use
Novogratz xo SJP Collection: Penelope Indoor/Outdoor Cart for $119, at Novogratz
Need a hand? This trendy turquoise rolling cart is here to help you out in a pinch. With wheels and two slatted shelves, it's the set of hands you need when bringing your indoor items, outdoors; as well as serving as the perfect backdrop for a last-minute bartending station too.
