The Garden Room

Maybe you’re a morning person with the perfect coffee in hand or a connoisseur of cocktails at the end of a long day. When you escape to the outdoor oasis of your home, make every moment count!

If you live around the lake, you know the pure magic of the sun-kissed setting and relaxing ambiance, especially at day’s end. With spring upon us and summer just a blink away, it’s the perfect time to set the tone for a serene escape to your outdoor living space.

That feeling of serenity is what Erin Clark first experienced on a trip to California, where she stopped at an outdoor furniture store by chance and found the vibe there so incredibly soothing and comfortable, she wanted nothing more than to sit all day and soak in the feeling. Already seeking a new creative adventure, she and her husband, Mike, realized nothing quite like that store existed in the Lake Norman area. Last June, they officially opened The Garden Room in Mooresville.

“Your outdoor retreat should reflect the same level of quality and style as your indoor surroundings,” said Erin.

Meet Erin and Mike at The Garden Room, schedule an in-home consultation if you’re looking for a totally new look for your outdoor space or shop their creative inventory to add some updated accessories (think gorgeous new planters, outdoor rugs or cool deck lanterns) to the outdoor areas you already enjoy. An avid gardener, Erin is excited to offer window box and planter design and installation this year for those who want gorgeous containers outdoors but need a little nudge.

The Garden Room carries outdoor furniture products from several different manufacturers including Barlow Tyrie, Sunset West and Pawley’s Island. They offer a wide variety of styles and popular materials including all-weather wicker, teak, powder-coated aluminum and Durawood, poly lumber – each made to withstand harsh outdoor elements. Powder-coated aluminum furniture is rust-proof, lightweight and comes in a variety of styles, while authentically designed all-weather wicker is also made of high-density material that’s stronger, fade-resistant and rot-resistant. All-weather rope is an exciting new material currently used in many outdoor furniture products – it’s durable, and both water and fade resistant.

Everything you find at The Garden Room is built to last, including solution dyed acrylic fabric from Sunbrella, with timeless designs and a five-year warranty against mildew and fading. Don’t forget furniture covers to keep your investment safe in inclement weather, or explore their many comfortable cushion-less options. To balance those hot summer days, a full line of easy-to-operate outdoor umbrellas awaits, including center pole and side cantilever in a variety of sizes and colors. For cooler evenings, The Garden Room is your source for sleekly designed fire tables.

New for 2024 – The Garden Room is hosting creative floral arranging classes, led by an experienced floral designer. At the first sold-out class, participants enjoyed a fun night learning to create a beautiful floral design to take home. Classes are scheduled around a holiday or seasonal theme, and on March 27th, enjoy an Easter/Spring themed class and another in May for Mother’s Day. Space is limited, and classes fill up quickly – register now by calling the store!

From long-lasting furniture to the charming extras that make your outdoor space a welcoming spot to celebrate our favorite seasons, The Garden Room is one-stop shopping to create the retreat your soul definitely needs!

The family owned business also offers unmatched service including personal delivery.

“We enjoy delivering the product and installing it ourselves,” said Erin. “It’s so satisfying to see the end result at a customer’s home!”

The Garden Room’s cozy location – a beautiful two-story historic building in downtown Mooresville – evokes that same feeling that enchanted Erin a few years back and is sure to inspire your outdoor décor shopping as well!
