Celebrating 10 Years of our Amalfi Collection

Ballard Designs' Amalfi Outdoor Collection

When we launched our Amalfi Outdoor Collection 10 years ago, little did we know it would become our best-selling outdoor porch furniture collections of all time. But, as they say, true beauty transcends time. The classic proportions and timeless style of each piece — from poolside loungers to patio sectionals to dining sets  —  have made our meticulously crafted collection a customer favorite through the years.

The intricately scrolled backs and basket weave details are beautiful, but it’s really everything you can’t see that makes Amalfi not only a stunning value, but an enduring Ballard classic.

In celebration of Amalfi’s milestone birthday, here are our top three reasons why we love this metal outdoor furniture collection — and you do, too:

Ballard Designs' Amalfi Outdoor Collection

1. Strong, Yet Light and Placeable

Every Amalfi piece is crafted of high-density aluminum to achieve a rich three-dimensional look with exceptional strength. And because they’re strong, lighter weight aluminum, pieces place easily.

5-Star Review
We purchased almost the entire Amalfi collection for our backyard patio/pool area. We are exceedingly pleased with the quality and design of this set. They were relatively easy to assemble and are beautiful to look at. Many favorable comments from guests and most importantly we are delighted. Would not choose anything else. I also ordered the black/white stripe cushions to alternate and it all goes together beautifully.

2. Beauty Engineered to Last

Amalfi frames are built using precision welds for smooth, consistent lines and joints that refuse to weaken despite years of wear and weather. Tabletops are cast as one piece for great durability and a seamless look.

5-Star Review
I had been looking at this furniture for three years – first for our condo and then for our townhouse. I started with the lounge chair and have since added a second lounge, couch and chair with ottoman. The coffee table is on the way. It was a big spend for me but worth every penny. The quality is that of much more expensive furniture. Beautiful and highly recommended.

3. Designed for Open Outdoor Living

Every Amalfi piece is beautifully protected in a powder-coated Sand Black finish that resists rusting, chipping and fading. Deep, comfy cushions have tan, machine-washable covers made of hardy, yarn-dyed polyester.

5-Star Review
I bought a pair of these on sale and what a value. Gorgeous and the tan cushions it comes with have a zippered cover, so I can literally throw them in a gentle wash. I also ordered a second set of replacement cushions in spa blue which, on sale plus a 20% off coupon, were an incredible value and so beautiful. I checked pottery barn, CB2, etc and couldn’t find a value anywhere near this chaise and the cushions. Buy them now, before I buy up the rest (I’ve got 4 decks, so I’m not really kidding).

    Confused and upset. After reading all the reviews of how Versatile the Ballard Almafi collection Is for everyone that bought it on sale and how the cushions unzip so well angers me. I purchased over 15 pieces of it spent over $10,000 and cushions deteriorate zippers break paint falls off exposing bare aluminum. I spoke with several people at the company to no avail stock is beautiful and I would like to continue using it matter fact I just bought new cushions because they fit the investment I already made but I would like to see some customer service
