Outdoor Furniture Essentials

Lounge Seating

From deckchairs to daybeds and sofas, today’s outdoor seating options are just as stylish as their indoor counterparts, with weatherproof durability to boot.

Garden Layers Daybed

When relaxation is the aim of the game, a cozy daybed is a must. Patricia Urquiola’s Garden Layers Daybed is a particular favorite. We love its classic waffle and tartan print which contrasts nicely with the contemporary cool powder-coated aluminum frame. Inspired by the traditions of the Indian Mughal Empire, this low height seating style references the custom of lounging outdoors on a carpet-covered floor.

Guhl Chair

Pragmatists may cringe at the thought of style over comfort, but when the piece in question looks this good, we’re willing to bet that some exceptions will be made. The Guhl Chair takes its cue from Willy Guhl’s iconic 1954 Loop Chair design, and is the perfect addition to any industrial or minimalist-minded homes. Rendered in a fiber cement blend, the final result is lightweight yet durable.

Blue Leaves Deckchair

Synonymous with poolside lounging, it’s no wonder deckchairs have come to epitomize all things summer. Even if your garden is sans pool, this fun and quirky Blue Leaves Deckchair will bring with it an air of beachy frivolity. Made from heavy-duty water-repellent canvas and a tropical hardwood frame, it’ll stand the test of time come rain or shine.

Side Table

Side tables are commonly overlooked in the patio furniture line up in favor of larger dining and picnic tables. However, if you’re short on space, these beauties make for a good alternative. After all, you’re going to need somewhere to perch your afternoon cocktail between sips.

Confetti Table

Our love affair with all things terrazzo reigns supreme thanks to the Confetti Table. Its chunky hourglass form borrows from the mid-century modern aesthetic while the speckled print embodies the best of kitsch. Together, the combination ensures all round chic.

Decorative Accents

Beyond furniture, decorative accents such as lighting, plants and artwork are key to creating a stylish outdoor space. The trick is to decorate your rooftop or garden as you would any other room in the house.

Carrie LED Lamp

The sun may have gone to bed but that doesn’t mean you have to. Balmy moonlit evenings are arguably the best part of summer, and the Carrie LED Lamp by Norm Architects will help you make the most of them. Its soft glow sets the scene for a warm and cozy atmosphere. Design-wise, the Carrie embodies all the minimalist hygge vibes, and then some.

Globe Planter

Whether indoors or out, plants make all the difference in the transformation of a space. For outdoors, we love the idea of contrasting the natural bohemian wilderness of the garden with a sleek and polished planter. The Globe Flower Pot is perfect for this. Cluster a couple of these matte metal planters in varying sizes to add visual depth.
