Perfectly Patriotic Outdoor Entertaining!

The Fourth of July is the perfect holiday for outdoor entertaining and relaxing, and the J Banks Retail Store has just received several new items that would make great additions to anyone’s Independence Day Soiree!

These new outdoor pillows are perfectly patriotic!

This graphic navy and white chevron pillow pairs nicely with this red one with a horizontal ruffle.

We love the nautical rope and grommet detail on this pillow. Wow – We can’t believe these are outdoor pillows!

We have a great selection of customizable trays, buckets and bins.  This “Cocktails” tray would be great beach or poolside!

Our new Graf & Lantz tote bags come in a variety of color combinations.  With leather straps and details they are chic, durable and most importantly – functional!

This white side table is perfect for a porch or patio.  Topped with glasses, red linen coasters and nautical print napkins it is the ideal place to set down your iced beverage or cocktail.

New rope napkin rings look great with nautical inspired red, white and blue place settings. These hand painted plates come adorned with red coral, lobsters and crabs!

For more information or to order any of these items please call our Retail Store at 843-682-1745.

Happy Fourth of July!

The White Sofa Project

We took one sofa in our retail store and asked each of the J Banks Designers to style the sofa and surrounding space utilizing pillows, lamps and accessories.  Each Designer had the ability to create a space that not only showed their “of-the-moment” loves from our retail store, but also demonstrated how a design client can easily change a space by adding a few new elements. Every week a different Designer would style the space and the results were always unique. Below is an image of each design.

Thank you to everyone who participated and helped with this project! It was fun seeing the same space interpreted through each different designer’s eyes.

If you’d like to purchase or receive additional information on any of these featured products, please feel free to stop by or contact our retail store at 843.682.1745. Thank you to KPM Flooring for donating the beautiful rugs that were used each week.
