Relax into Summer with Aspen Teak


Summer is in full swing here in the Roaring Fork Valley and that means it’s time to hit the patio. In order to make the most of the long days, warm temps and gorgeous surroundings, you might want to find the perfect patio furniture. When we think of ideal patio furniture, there is one brand that always comes to mind: Aspen Teak. 

Aspen Teak is a family-owned operation with 15 years of experience handcrafting stunning teak furniture for outdoor settings. They only work with sustainably harvested Grade-A teak wood because it is one of the most durable and elegant materials on earth. 

Thanks to an impressive hardness and density, and an above average oil content, teak stands up to the elements better than most woods and can last for years. We’re not talking about a couple seasons, think more along the lines of a couple generations.  

Over its 15 years in business, the Aspen Teak has been able to create a truly impressive product line. From beautiful contemporary loungers and benches to tables, chairs, and accessories, we are constantly impressed with the variety of products they offer. 


Of all the amazing products built by Aspen Teak, the one summertime staple we can’t recommend highly enough is the Aspen Chair (pictured above). The Adirondack style chair is sustainably built and, unlike most chairs in the category, is foldable. 

If you haven’t been able to experience Aspen Teak outdoor furniture for yourself, come by Cathers Home and find out why we think it might be the perfect outdoor furniture for summer in the Roaring Fork Valley. 

2018 Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet (PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet). The Pantone Color Institute describes Ultra Violet as “inventive and imaginative”, “complex and contemplative”, and as a color that “lights the way to what is yet to come.”


And the 2018 Color of the Year goes beyond trends. According to Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, the Pantone Color of the Year is “a reflection of what’s needed in our world today”.

That’s an excellent reason for selecting a color.

Interior Design & Ultra Violet

Ultra Violet is a bold color, making it ideal for drawing attention to a chair, sofa, lamp, rug, or throw pillow.

Cathers Home has used Ultra Violet in the past, including in our Snowmass Ranch project.

And we also harnessed this imaginative color in our Colorful Mountain Retreat project.

Here are some Ultra Violet pieces chosen by Cathers Home.


We’re excited to see how the interior design industry uses Ultra Violet in 2018!

2017 High Point Market

Each year, top interior designers, architects and furniture devotees converge on High Point, NC for the High Point Market, the largest home furnishings trade show in the world.  Here we highlight a few significant and impressive trends from the recent show that we expect to see more of in the coming year.

Diamond, a timeless pattern, is often seen in small scale repeat patterns. What we don’t often see is large diamond patterns accenting modern spaces. We were very excited to see the use of large diamond patterns throughout the trade show. We believe these patterns, when used properly, can bring a subtle, sharp, cooling feel to larger otherwise open spaces. Here are some of our favorite uses from the show:

Indigo rules! This year at the trade show it was nearly impossible to escape the bright blue depth of indigo. From chairs and wall hangings to chandeliers and sofas the color indigo ruled the floor. We were frankly a little surprised, after the announcement in January that the Pantone Color of the Year was Greenery we came to the show expecting lush green accents in every room. The strong presence of Indigo wasn’t unwelcome though; with all its depth, we’ve always found Indigo to bring a welcoming, cooling accent to otherwise featureless spaces. Here are some of our favorite uses of indigo at this year’s show:

As we mentioned in our previous blog post, 2016 was the year for metals and neutral tones featuring raw and organic colors and textures. This spring we were very happy to see a resurgence in a style that’s being called sophisticated grandeur, the more colorful, lusher and softer version of 2016’s metal trends. Think deep, sultry and lavish textures. Think qualified decadence. Think gem tones, dark greens and blue ornate china. Fortunately, this trend is not solely reserved for traditional homeowners. At this year’s show, we started to see elements of sophisticated grandeur popping up on sleek, contemporary pieces as well. Here are some of our favorites:

Coming Trends: Angles & Warm Metals

In 2016 we saw a resurgence of warm metals. Bronze, gold and rose gold all grew in popularity, in part, due to the Pantone 2016 color of the year – Rose Quartz – a perfect match for rose gold and other warm metals. As we move into 2017 we are seeing a continuation of these trends with a focus on mid-century metal accents. In this Ransom Culler chair by Thayer Coggin we see the warm metals accenting the classic lounge chair stylings. 

We see more examples of this trend in the Thomas O’Brian Buffet Lamp made with a hand rubbed antique brass finish and an alabaster base and the Barry Goralnick coffee table featuring Agaria marble with a French brass finish.

We look forward to following this trend and seeing what uses it might have for Cather’s Home. Another trend we have seen this year is the use of angle patterns in textiles. While warm brass can create a soft and rounded feel, an angular piece can bring a sharp accent to an otherwise muted space. A classic mid-century interior design technique that is seeing a resurgence. We can see this trend in this mid-century style console made with smoked eucalyptus and featuring random triangles with opposing grain. Another example is this cotton pillow with a down insert called “Lesson in Angles.”

In the coming year Cather’s Home looks forward to seeing how we can use these new and exciting stylistic resurgences to provide cohesive and unique spaces for our clients. Make sure to come by our retail store in Basalt, CO and see what cutting edge pieces we have in stock. 


The Cathers Home Team wishes all of our families, friends, associates and clients a very Happy Thanksgiving.  We are extremely thankful to everyone that makes it possible for us to do what we love to do - help people create amazing homes and spaces where they can be happy and spend time with family and friends.  Thank You!!  Cathers Home will be closed on Thursday in observance of the holiday.  Have a wonderful day!



Introducing Cathers Tents

Cathers Tents

Cathers Home is proud to introduce Cathers Tents. As an award-winning Aspen interior design firm, we chose to extend our expertise into events―specifically, temporary event venues. The goal behind our new venture is to make your event tenting experience one in a million.

Cathers Home founder, Paul Cathers, designed these unique tents. To create a light and airy ambience, Paul included flowing, natural fabrics throughout the interior. Fabric covered hardware, poles, and metal surfaces, along with hand-carved teak supports and finials add an elegant finish.

After years of attending events in run-of-the-mill tents, Paul Cathers and the Cathers Home team saw an opportunity to transform and greatly improve the event tenting experience. Cathers Tents are unparalleled in the tent rental industry, and will make your tenting experience as memorable as the event itself!
