Welcome To Neighbor: A Note From Our Founders
Written by Neighbor Editorial Team | @neighboroutdoor | Opens in a new window. |
How Neighbor started, and what the brand means to us.
The idea for Neighbor was born out of how good it feels to spend time with friends and family outdoors. Even before the pandemic hit, founders Nick Arambula, Chris Lee, and Mike Fretto recognized the power of curating an outdoor living space as a place to relax and wanted to make beautiful, high-quality furniture that could withstand the forces of nature. The team has since grown by 2 and moved from a home office to an office/showroom in downtown Phoenix. The goal, however, remains the same; to make furniture for your living room outdoors.
From Nick, Chris, and Mike
First of all, welcome to Neighbor! We’ve had such a positive reaction from customers since launching our first collection, and we can’t thank you enough for continuing to support our brand and sharing your photos and reviews with us. Our hope is that when you shop at Neighbor, you’ll be able to make space for the people and moments that matter most to you.
Looking at our furniture, you’ll see evidence of our values of craftsmanship, sustainability, and durability. We use the best and most sustainable materials we can find, like FSC-certified teak, Sunbrella fabric, quick-drying foam, and marine-grade hardware. We make sure everything is easy to assemble and provide free shipping and hassle-free returns. If you move, or grow your family, our modular design gives you the ability to expand or re-configure your furniture.
At Neighbor, connection to loved ones and to the outdoors is literally built into our framework. Our furniture could mean sharing a meal outdoors, sitting by a bonfire late into the night, or simply spending time with your kids on a summer afternoon.
We are all Neighbors, and that means more now than it ever has.
Stay tuned for a few exciting product launches and stop by our showroom to say hello!
