August 2003 marked the beginning of an era when Kolo Collection owners Michelle Larrabee-Martin and Greg Martin would transform the Southeast’s exterior design industry with their foray into the outdoor furniture world. Kolo Collection is home to a vast selection of styles ranging from American traditional to European modern. There lineup of manufacturers includes Brown Jordan, Lloyd Flanders, Tropitone, DEDON, Mamagreen, TUUCI, Seaside Casual, Jensen Leisure, Frankford Umbrellas, Vondom, and Royal Botania.
Kolo Collection’s foundation is built of an affinity for high-quality outdoor furniture and a passion for turning a modest patio into a genuine outdoor retreat. But Kolo Collection’s true guiding principle rests in its commitment to offering a personalized experience imbued with expertise, honesty and an artful eye to every client and designer. The mission is simple—create outdoor spaces to live in, lounge in and enjoy for years to come.
Kolo Collection has been recognized as an Apollo finalist nine times in the past; however, this is the first time as a multi-store nominee. In December 2019, Kolo Collection opened a showroom in Nashville, Tennessee. Kolo Collection determined this market was perfect for their mix of style and design. They recognized that Nashville was one of the fastest growing cities in the country, but it was underserved when it came to an exterior furnishing showroom with great lines and the expertise needed to serve the market.
Kolo Collection owners, Michelle & Greg Martin, are proud to be surrounded and supported by an amazing staff that are more like family than employees.
