The Rita Lounge & Bowen Table. We know them. We love them — so much that we had to have more. We are pleased to announce the newest additions to the outdoor family: the Rita Loveseat and Bowen Bench! Designed by our friends at Filter Studio, these enhancements to our outdoor seating and outdoor table collections aim to support unique workstyles and human connections paired with style and comfort.
Much like the Rita Lounge, the Rita Loveseat pairs delightful comfort with artful functionality — balancing what people want from home and what is needed to be productive. Designed for the outdoors, yet equally at home indoors, the Rita Loveseat is highly customizable.
- Personalize the tubular steel frame in your choice of durable powder coat finishes for the outdoors.
- Cushions dry quickly when left in the rain with outdoor-grade Dri-Fast foam.
- Increased comfort with optional armrests in outdoor suitable materials.
The Rita Loveseat boasts the comfort of the Lounge but with added room to spread out or connect with a friend or colleague.

The Bowen Outdoor Bench was designed to seamlessly nest under the Bowen Communal Table, creating a visual sense of togetherness. The inviting design of the Bowen Outdoor Collection encourages gathering and socializing. A practical picnic-like table and bench can be applied to a variety of settings ranging from hospitality to corporate offices.
Crafted from outdoor-ready materials — including over 150 steel frame colors and recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or Ipe hardwood for the slatted seat.
New outdoor materials available for Rita Lounge and Bowen Collections
Bowen and Rita Lounge Collections stand up to the elements with new, durable outdoor material options for surfaces.
Meet HDPE — A Sustainable Choice
HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is a sustainable dimensional wood alternative made primarily from recycled post-consumer and post-industrial plastic materials that are diverted from the waste stream –and fully recyclable at the end of its useful life. As a high-performance yet low-maintenance material, HDPE is color stable and can withstand the harsh outdoor elements, never splintering, cracking or chipping.
Meet Ipe — A Naturally Resilient Hardwood
Ipe (pronounced E-Pay) is a long-lasting dense hardwood with a premium look and feel. This low-to-no maintenance wood is naturally resistant to insects, rot and decay. Over time, the unfinished hardwood weathers to a beautiful grey patina.
