Harmonia Living designs around the must haves, and then they add a few nice to haves. The result is comfortable, quality, well-made furniture at a reasonable price.

Harmonia Living, designer and purveyor of high-quality yet affordable outdoor furniture, was recently featured on E!’s “Modern Living with Kathy Ireland®." Focused on the hottest trends and breakthroughs, "Modern Living" highlighted Harmonia’s creations as “Outdoor Furniture ‘Must Haves’” for “The Inspired Home” segment.

Even as show host Kathy Ireland recognized that “outdoor furniture brings with it a unique set of challenges,” she also praised Harmonia Living for offering the perfect “balance between price and panache.” That balance is exactly what co-founders Tony Montijo and Ben Harvey have worked so painstakingly to perfect.

They’d noted that high-quality outdoor pieces were priced “through the roof,” yet dealing in cheaper but less durable pieces “just didn’t feel good.” Instead, the two decided to fill the “really large hole in the market” with their own designs and creations. In the "Modern Living" segment, Harvey explains the idea was “to create and use the same high-quality ingredients and the high-quality construction techniques and try to design them at an affordable price.” As Kathy Ireland notes, “Harmonia Living designs around the must haves, and then they add a few nice to haves. The result is comfortable, quality, well-made furniture at a reasonable price.”

Harmonia Living’s focus is on quality: product materials and construction techniques that will endure in a wide range of climates. Montijo defines the company’s prime ingredients as the frame, the wicker and the fabric. Harmonia’s heavy-duty frames of powder-coated aluminum won’t rust or fatigue like thin-walled painted steel will. The wicker is made from recyclable, environmentally friendly high-density polyethylene, which lasts three to four times as long as other wicker materials. As for fabrics, durable, stylish, solution-dyed Sunbrella® acrylics ensure that your upholstery will last.

Take a tour of the company’s website, and you’ll quickly realize Montijo and Harvey have created something special, something for everyone, something that will extend your living space seamlessly into the outdoors. Their Acapulco chat set is fresh and light, their circular Eclipse sectional pieces modern, versatile and luxurious. You can find clever daybeds in the Wink collection, and Element designs transform even the largest patio expanse into home. As for the coming Ibis collection, it promises to be a work of art.

As Kathy Ireland observed, “Harmonia Living’s outdoor furniture has filled a niche that many prospective customers have long desired” and “paved the way for homeowners to experience quality, affordable outdoor furniture.”

About all the choices among styles, wickers and fabrics, Montijo offers only positive encouragement. “The most important thing when you’re shopping for furniture is just to have fun. Just think about how much this beautiful furniture is going to transform your home and space.”
