Castlery   |   Mar 17, 2023

Whether you have a spacious backyard or a cozy balcony, having the right outdoor furniture can make all the difference in creating an inviting and comfortable space.

In your search for outdoor furniture, you would have come across our collections: Sorrento, Maui, and Sierra. But, what are their differences and which should you pick for your home?

To help you make an informed decision, we’ll dive deeper into how these outdoor furniture collections compare. Let’s first take a look at each collection and how they can fit in your outdoor space!

The Sorrento outdoor collection

The Sorrento collection features modern pieces that would look great in any home. Sorrento’s boxy design combined with angular details create a unique design that instantly elevates your outdoor space.

The sofas, lounge chairs, and dining chairs boast an airy design with slim armrests and a slatted backrest​. The combination of wood tones, black aluminum frame, and beige cushions​ create a nice contrast that still looks minimalistic.

As for the coffee and dining tables, they have slatted resin wood tabletops that is water-resistant.

Furthermore, the Sorrento collection has several sofa units that allows you to setup various modular configurations - from L-shape extended sectionals to left-facing 2-seater sofas. This makes Sorrento a great choice if you regularly host large groups and have to accommodate many guests.

The Maui outdoor collection

The Maui collection consists of sleek designs with nature-inspired textures. Unlike Sorrento and Sierra, Maui’s base is made with Acacia wood, which is sturdy and durable.

Its curved backrests and armrests boasts a sleek and elegant design; and the rope backing on the lounge chairs and loveseats are strung by hand, resulting in each lounge piece having a handcrafted touch.

Compared to Sorrento and Sierra, Maui has the smallest product range — with only a loveseat, lounge chairs, and a coffee table. Despite this, it is still one of our most popular outdoor collections to date.

The Sierra outdoor collection

The Sierra collection is a modern bohemian outdoor collection that also features nature-inspired textures. The lounge chairs, dining chairs, and sofas have a natural rattan weaving and an aluminum frame, similar to that of Sorrento.

The coffee and dining tables are also slatted and made with a resin wood tabletop, which is water-resistant.

A rattan sofa, lounge chair, and wooden coffee table are placed outdoors under the shade. The Sierra Extended L-Shape Sectional Sofa, Coffee Table, and Lounge Chair.

Sierra’s chairs and sofas have a seating depth of 23.6inches, making it the deepest seating outdoor lounge when compared to Sorrento (20inches) and Maui (20.5inches).

While Sierra doesn’t have nearly as many seating units compared to Sorrento, you still have many options to choose from to create the perfect space — a sectional sofa, a 3-seater sofa, an armless sofa, lounge chairs, and more.

Which should you pick?

These three outdoor collections have their own distinct features and styles, and would look great in any outdoor space. Now that you know how they compare, which should you pick?

The Sorrento and Sierra collections would both work well if you regularly host large groups and prefer to have the party outdoors. Both outdoor collections gel well with a modern or minimalistic theme and have several modular units you can choose from to create ample seating for your outdoor space. For example, with Sorrento’s right-facing, left-facing, armless, and corner sofas, you could create a large outdoor lounge with more than enough seating area that still fits into your space!

If you intend to go for a more cozy outdoor lounging experience with your guests, Sierra would be the better of the two. Its deeper seats and lower back height provide more cushy seating so you can kick your feet up and enjoy a cold drink.

Maui will be ideal if you’re going for a modern tropical theme in your home. The natural elements of the collection like the Acacia wood base and rope backing would gel well with your other wood decor, especially if you choose the colors in Taupe. Its deep seats will also give you the perfect lounging experience in your outdoor space.

We hope that this article has helped you understand the differences between the three outdoor collections and narrowed down your choice.

How do I clean my outdoor furniture?

With regular maintenance, outdoor furniture are relatively to clean. Whether the material of your pieces are teak, metal, plastic, or rattan, always use a gentle cleaning solution (it can be homemade too!), a soft brush or cloth, and rinse with water. Never use harsh chemicals or a pressure washer on furniture.
