Due to growing request, what was once available exclusively to the coastal communities of Texas (fka Riviera Decor) Riviera Outdoor Decor has now specialized and expanded internationally with our website.

Our Purpose and our Mission

Our mission at Riviera Outdoor Decor is a simple one.  For our clients, we want to create Outdoor Patio Spaces that create a feeling like you have escaped to a resort- a resort outside your own back door to unwind from the demands of the world. 

We accomplish our Mission in a two-fold process:

1).  Innovative and Custom Designs. At Riviera Outdoor Decor, we are the designer and manufacturer.  This ensures you get the best product at the lowest price.

2).  Specialized techniques in construction coupled with materials that are sourced with proven results for quality and sustainability.  This longevity ensures savings to our our clients on replacement so they will have more resources available to build the outdoor space of their dreams.

**  While our website is under construction, we invite you to watch our video hereto learn more about Riviera Outdoor Decor and our pledge to customer service and superior products.


 Your outdoor space will become the place friends and families will want to gather to spend quality time together because... quality family time without distractions are memories to last forever.    

Made in the USA

All our manufacturing and materials are sourced here in the United States at the studio of Riviera Outdoor Decor and carefully overseen for quality by our lead designer, Melissa Hammann.
