1997 The Designer's Choice gives rise to the Arts & Crafts style and Eastern influences to introduce the Artisan and Horizon series.

1998 The McConnell collection revolutionizes the Arts & Crafts Movement influence into commercial furniture while the Catalina bursts forth with rays of southern style to define The Modern Classics.

1999 Site Furniture of Distinction is graced with the capture of timeless classical Greece building character in the Athenos and the savvy hip of the upscale Cabaret dining collection.

2000 A modern blend of contemporary European influence and historic design represents the simplistic innovation of the Exeter bench that deserves the year to itself.

2001 Establish aesthetics, define a sense of place and Create A PresenceTM are revealed in the cottage-style Kerrington, urban-elegant Midtown and modern-day revival Atticus.

2002 The Gothic cathedral spirit reveals the Augustine, the reclining Adirondack Thendara relaxes, the Breakwater stylizes weathered clapboards and the Torque turns it up a notch.

2003 Puddin Drippins®: The exclusive line of children's site furnishings offers a spirited complement for play environments and interactive settings while maintaining the time-honored originality and craftsmanship.  Not to be outdone, the funky-bridged Pylon, classic airy Leesburg & traditional picket fence Fenwick series provide stark style contrasts for an eclectic era.

2004 Cultural Traditions expand horizons with the historic Americana of the Liberty, unified grace of nature and architecture in the Tei and the avant-garde Dragonfly swoop that re-defines the term bench.

2005
 Innovative, sleek and unobtrusive design was revealed with the addition of the Penn ash tower as a means for inconspicuous cigarette disposal.  Also, in a collaboration with ABC’s “Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition”, Keystone Ridge Designs’ Torque benches were used by the design team for their unique industrial metal design that coordinated with the theme of the family’s backyard skate ramp.

2006 Upholding the same reputable standards of original design, exceptional quality and lasting durability, Brazilian Cherry wood furniture created options with an elegant resort appeal and natural beauty.

2007 With a focus on expanding the core product line of powder coated steel furnishings, the sophisticated Sienna, the architecturally-inspired Conservatory and the interlacing Kilian benches offered new options in distinctive seating.

2008 Inspired by a custom application for a premier ski resort, the Atlanta bike and ski rack combination became a standard product providing a unique year-round functionality for ski resorts.

2009 The introduction of the Schenley bench provides a new option in public seating and landscape enhancement with sleek horizontal lines, comfort-designed angles and tear-drop inspired cast aluminum legs.

2010 The expansion of the Penn series of products combines the existing ash urn with a modern collection of site furnishings intended for today's urban landscapes.  A sleek bench design, an inventive leaning rail concept and a compact litter receptacle
offer practical applications for city parks, transit stations and busy public spaces.

2011 The Easton table set provides new options in group seating with the flexibility to add 4, 5 or 6 seats around the table.  Also, the increasing popularity of the Schenley bench led to new variations including steel rods instead of slats or the ability to customize with Ipe hardwood and recycled lumber.

2012 New materials were highlighted with the Ipe hardwood slats of the new Robinson bench and the perforated steel of the Jackson series.  The Penn curved table adds a modern flare to our table collection and the Penn dual litter/recycling receptacle showcases versatility to accommodate clean street initiatives.
