the sultan of shade…

…is coming to an event near you!

summer soulstic is here and with it comes all of the festivals and outdoor activities!  today is the longest day of the year and at 80+ degrees here in l.a., a taste of what’s to come.  a lot of folks will be enjoying the beautiful weather with a day in the park, a weekend camping at the beach or spending a few days at one of the many upcoming festivals.  who says you can’t rough it in style?

i’ve known orlando boyd for for 15+ years and i’ve watched him grow his entrepreneurial prowess from made to order hawaiian shirts to custom one of a kind bedouin styled tents and gazebos!  i was blown away to see how far he’s come and just how amazingly unique his designs are.  each habitat starts off with a consultation in which orly takes the time to get to know his customer and their vision in order to incorporate their personal taste and style.  the results are sumptuous and can go beyond your wildest dreams with layered fabrications, trims, window treatments and more.  and, for those who have need of accessories, he can provide you with cushions, lamps, rugs and anything else you may desire to trick out your new pad!

orly laughs as he describes the buzz that comes up when he pitches one of his creations at burning man or lightning in a bottle.  everyone gathers around wanting to know the who, what and how.  having experienced one up close, i have to admit it’s dazzling to behold with beaded curtains, lush velvet moroccan poufs, tasseled trim, conch shell touches and ornate tin lamps.  even if you have no intention of ever leaving the creature comforts of home, this would still be a lovely summer addition to your backyard perfect for hiding away on a lazy day with a book and your favorite beverage!  tents not your thing?  he also does gazebos for a lighter touch to the suburban home or loft with rooftop access.

prices are contingent upon size and fabrication with creativity, quality and durability always guaranteed. get yours now and be that it girl or guy at the next gathering!  you can contact orly via his website hana lima industries.
