Tyndall’s Casual Furniture offers all the best to christen your outdoor summer season — in style!

Written By: Nick Brandi

As Delmarva’s largest casual-furniture dealer, Vonda and Brittany Calhoun of Tyndall’s Casual Furniture are in their glory when the warm weather rolls around. It not only means they can reconnect with a legion of longtime customers who are like friends, they also get to meet a bunch of fresh, new faces and make a host of new friends who have emerged from the winter thaw in search of the latest and best in outdoor appointments to ring in another blissful summer on the Eastern Shore.

Obviously, with an oceanic 35,000 sq. ft. spread between their Laurel, Del., and Lewes locations, and another 10,000 sq. ft. in warehouse space, Tyndall’s is uniquely situated to provide you with exactly the kind of outdoor style and comfort you seek virtually immediately. Plus, with five-piece-set prices as low as $299 and $129 chaise lounges, you should have plenty of money leftover to finance those idyllic backyard barbecues this summer with friends and family.

“It seems the ‘outdoor room’ remains the most conspicuous trend we see,” said Brittany. “Consumers are not just purchasing dining sets; they are purchasing deep seating, outdoor kitchens, firepits, lamps and rugs. The outdoor room has truly become an extension of the home.”

The Calhouns make sure that Tyndall’s is up-to-the-minute with the hottest products, whether it’s because of their price points, comfort, looks, design or sense of environmental responsibility. Because of Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Father’s Day, for example, Tyndall’s is dubbing May and June “Buy American” months. 

So, you may expect great deals and ready availability on top-quality and in-demand products from such all-American manufacturers as Telescope Casual, Homecrest, Lloyd Flanders, Breezesta, Poly~Wood and Seaside Casual.

“We represent manufacturers from all over the world,” shared Brittany, “still, my mother, Vonda, and I are proud to say that buying USA is very much en vogue again, so we made sure that we had the inventory to meet that commendable demand.”

Brittany added that a central part of the “outdoor room” trend that has retained such popularity includes things like outdoor kitchens and firepits. Here again, Tyndall’s is armed and ready, with Kentucky-based manufacturer Housewarmings Outdoor offering not only those items but entire outdoor entertainment rooms that feature things like two-pergola platforms with cedar trellis tops and matching bases, as well as stainless-steel appliances with a built-in wine rack, stereo and CD player.

But alas, into even Delmarva lives some rain must fall. That’s why Tyndall’s is chock-full of durable products in equally durable fabrics that can withstand the harsh weather and abrupt climate shifts for which the Eastern Shore is so well known. Products by industry leaders such as Sunbrella and Outdura feature acrylic fabrics that can endure the most extreme weather yet may be cleaned with straight bleach.

Those are just a few of the reasons to visit Tyndall’s for all of your outdoor-furniture needs. There are many more. They also offer 100% financing, free design services right in your home and white-glove delivery to all of Delmarva, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania – all tax-free. Tyndall’s also maintains a stable of highly satisfied long-distance customers, including one Houston client for whom the Calhouns recently flew down to Texas to decorate their entire home, both inside and out.

“We are family-run for more than 25 years, and that is what drives my mother and me,” Brittany said. “It’s that sense of being part of a family, whether we’re talking about blood relations, our loyal staff or our beloved customers. All of it, in its totality, creates that environment that makes you really eager to go to work every day.”
