Started in 2020 by three friends and former co-workers, Neighbor creates sustainable, high-quality furniture built for everyday life. The Phoenix-based brand is known for their collections of beautiful, sustainably made outdoor sectionals, adirondack chairs, patio tables and more constructed with a simple design that requires little maintenance year after year. But while their designs are certainly beautiful, Neighbor’s goal extends far beyond style.
“We believe by helping our customers create their living room outdoors, they’ll find themselves making space for time, family and loved ones to make memories that will last a lifetime,” says Neighbor co-founder, Mike Fretto in our interview with him.
Additionally, the team at Neighbor says that creating space to feel more connected and present is the “why” behind everything they do. “Technology is reaching a point where it is impossible to ignore its influence on every aspect of our daily lives,” says Fretto. “We think technology has its place, and we know that in many ways our lives are enriched by it. However, we think it is important to spend time outside each day, and we know that it happens more consistently when you have a space that you look forward to and feel comfortable in.

And it feels substantial; right off the bat, you can see and feel that the set didn’t come from any interchangeable big box store. This one is clearly sturdy and made to last.”
