Outdoor Accessories

By Anna Cole

Whether you’ve spent the day floating on the Snake River, climbing high in the Tetons, or biking on Teton Pass, the fun shouldn’t stop when you get home. Make sure your backyard and deck are properly styled for summer with these finds from local pros.

Run With It

There’s no doubt the modern-but-organic look and feel of Caroline Z Hurley’s Natural Moons Table Runner will be a star at your next outdoor dinner. The 6-foot-long, 100 percent linen runner is individually block-printed by hand with nontoxic acrylic ink. “The contemporary design adds some serious style to any dinner party,” says Grace Home Design associate Kate Dreher Swanson. $80, available from Grace Home Design, 960 Alpine Ln. #1, 307/733-9893, gracehomedesign.com


Local design team Pamela Stockton and Melinda Shirk love Loloi’s new collab with Joanna Gaines of Magnolia Farms. Her line of rugs and pillows done with the award-winning textile manufacturer Loloi has patterns that “embody mountain chic,” Shirk says. For this season, the indoor/outdoor pillow collection is a fav of Shirk’s, both for its stain-, water-, and sun-resistant fabrics and its affordability. Starting at $135, available at Stockton & Shirk Interior Designs, 745 W. Broadway Ave., 307/733-0274, stocktonandshirk.com

A Sense Of Place (Setting)

It’s the Fourth of July and you’re having a party. You don’t want to use your good flatware and dishes, but neither do you want guests to feel like they’re at a frat party with paper plates and plastic forks. Meet the Fallen Leaves Plates, made from heat-pressed, fallen palm fronds and “so sturdy,” says Cassie Dean, shopkeeper at Paper and Grace. Designer Michael Aram’s Madhouse Cutlery is made from plastic but is dishwasher-safe, so you can get multiple uses out of it, which you’ll want to do since it’s the perfect design for Jackson Hole—the handles are shaped like twigs. Plates $27 for 25, cutlery $7 for a set of 4; Paper and Grace, 55 N. Glenwood, 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

Play Ball

Every lawn needs a croquet set. Meet Jaques London, the British company that invented the game way back in 1851 and the maker of the world’s finest croquet sets since. If money is no object, interior designer Melinda Shirk likes the company’s Great Exhibition Croquet Set, one of its finest. It comes with pairs of four different types of mallets, eight matching composite balls, and a variety of zipped canvas bags to keep everything organized. Jaques’ Tonbridge set is equally as functional but not as fancy, and has a more affordable price to reflect that. Great Exhibition set from $1,200, Tonbridge from $60; available at Stockton & Shirk, 745 W. Broadway Ave., 307/733-0274, stocktonandshirk.com

Swinging In The Breeze

Range editor Dina Mishev can’t get enough of Loll’s Rope Swing. She hung one on her front porch, greeting guests with a touch of whimsy, but this swing (made from 100 percent recycled plastic) works most anywhere. $277, lolldesigns.com

Cool, But Hot

Made from nonpowder-coated, hot-rolled steel, a Stahl Firepit’s color matures over time. It starts dark and, say, about three years later (depending on weather), the patina will have matured into a rich, autumnal yellow. This firepit isn’t just about color, though. “I love the geometric form,” says Sarah Kennedy, an interior designer at Carney Logan Burke Architects. “It’s a unique departure from the expected circular or box shapes that you see everywhere.” The same design comes in three sizes, all easy to assemble (and disassemble) without needing so much as a screwdriver. From $499, stahlfirepit.com

All Tied Up

The signature move of Milan-based Paola Lenti is crafting pieces—from rugs to chairs and swings—from braided rope. The company’s Ray Modular Rug is resistant to environmental factors like UV rays and water. “Using an outdoor rug helps ground the seating configuration and makes the space feel more intimate,” says Cynthia Harms, interior design coordinator at Carney Logan Burke Architects. Complement Lenti’s rug with one of her Nido poufs. “The simple design allows for so much versatility—they can be used indoors or outdoors, with coordinating Paola Lenti furniture or with pieces from a completely different vendor,” Harms says.
