Laid-Back in LA: Outdoor Furniture from a Native Son

Confession: We want to dismiss James Perse as a well-funded dilettante (his father owns Maxfield in LA), but he’s the real deal. He’s better known for his clothing lines, which cater to the well-heeled California surfer/snowboarder/skier, but we’re more interested in his made-in-the-USA home collection. His pieces may not work everywhere (his collections are named Brentwood, Malibu, Norcal, after all) but the proportions are good, the craftsmanship is high, and the lines are clean. Oh, and did we mention that we really like his beach towels and totes?
