John Danzer and Munder-Skiles



“Simplicity, practicality, ingenuity, integrity – these are the qualities that make a design stand out and stay forever fresh”.  This has been John Danzer’s design philosophy for nearly 30 years as he built a gardening and outdoor living consultancy and extensive product line from scratch.  The company was born out of a passion for garden furniture and accessories that possess these traits and the desire to translate them for modern living.

Drawing inspiration from historic, iconic, and modern designs, John’s aspiration is always to develop designs and an outdoor living sensibility that is also perceived as classic in some important way.  Further, John seeks to create furniture and accessories that always stay in context with the gardens, architecture, and even nature that is the outdoor setting for each and every piece. John’s Munder-Skiles garden furnishings company represents thirty years dedication to beautiful gardens, sumptuous outdoor living, and the celebration of nature itself.  The company has furniture showrooms in New York and Los Angeles, and a garden showroom in the wonderfully bucolic Garrison, New York.

John also holds worldwide trademark rights to The Exterior Decorator and The World of Exteriors.
