Our Story

Our story began as a conversation on a boat around our shared love of art, nature, and entertaining. The concept was simple. To combine Mike's wildlife art with Renee's artistic design to create an ambitious line of outdoor living products that would turn any outdoor space into a refuge. A place to relax, to gather friends, to enjoy nature.

We got to work, turning our patio and deck into a design studio. With our own outdoor entertaining and enjoyment in mind, we created our first outdoor benches, striving for comfort, durability, and nature-inspired style.

Over the last 14 years, our design portfolio has grown steadily as we create functional art that speaks to a variety of lifestyles and tastes. Our innovations in the design, sculpting and mold-making process allow our factory artisans to produce the best detail quality seen in the sand-casting industry. 

Despite our growth, we have remained a family-owned business. Our children, Weston and Kristin, have joined us for the next chapter of Painted Sky Designs. Tucked in the Driftless region along the Mississippi River, we are still using our own outdoor living spaces to develop new designs that we ourselves proudly use when we entertain family and friends.

Thanks for being part of our story.

Our Mission

At Painted Sky Designs, we don't believe art belongs only on your living room walls! We create original art and turn it into functional outdoor furniture and accessories to transform your patio, deck or garden into a refuge. Whether you are hosting a backyard barbecue, building your dream patio, or just looking for a place to relax at the end of a long day, our nearly 200 lifestyle-themed product choices have you covered. You choose your design, we promise you durability, excellent customer service, and ambitious style!

Each Painted Sky Designs product begins with original art produced by artist and co-founder Mike Meyer. With his wife Renee and son Weston, the company pushes sand-casted furniture to impressive limits with innovative designs and superb manufacturing. The result is original art transformed into beautiful, functional outdoor benches, gliders, swings, furniture and accessories.

Each new concept is hand-drawn before being digitally rendered and fine-tuned for production. Skilled foundry artisans then sculpt the designs in clay before casting the designs in iron or aluminum and hand-finishing each piece. Outstanding design, attention to detail, and artisan casting goes into every Painted Sky product. Our products are truly "different by design".
