Outdoor Trunk officially launched its ecommerce store this week with the goal of changing how people think about outdoor spaces. Found at http://www.outdoortrunk.com, customers will find a creative and eclectic mix of high-quality products designed to help define or refine their personal style. Visitors will find a blog filled with ideas and inspiration on how to make their outdoor space an extension of their indoor living area.
A sister company of Melton Design Group, an award winning landscape architecture and planning firm with over 25 years' experience in commercial and residential markets, Outdoor Trunk is redefining the outdoor space market.
“Our mission is to create connections between people outside, in their neighborhoods and communities,” says Founder Christa Melton. “Through our blog and inspiration gallery, we show customers how this can be done and how they can use the products we offer, mixed with their own, to create a space that’s unique to their style and fits their own individual spirit.”
Product offerings include items such as outdoor furniture for the yard, accents for gardens and eco-friendly items to give or get. All products are chosen by Christa and her design team who have over two decades of design experience in creating both indoor and outdoor spaces with a commitment to beautiful, sustainable environments. “Outdoor Trunk is all about blurring the lines between inside and out,” said Melton. “So much of this country provides weather that allows us to be outside throughout the year – Outdoor Trunk helps customers learn to maximize this precious space by providing resources to create an appealing gathering place for people to talk and connect. We call this ‘social landscaping’."
Outdoor Trunk considers education at their core offering emails with inspiration, how-to’s, DIY projects to keep the outdoors fresh in their minds. One of the more popular topics is their Tipsy Tuesday feature which shares refreshing cocktail recipes featuring natural, plant based infusions and ingredients such as the Sweet Pea cocktail made with fresh peas, pesto, lemon and vodka.
Outdoor Trunk believes you should “enjoy the sunshine.” Melton adds, “We need to get back to community. It’s a big piece in creating harmony. Come join us.” Watch Outdoor Trunk's newest video for more insight into the inspiration behind the company.
