Creating a room without walls is a dream made easy with innovative materials and concepts. The lines are blurred between indoor and outdoor furnishings now, a welcome and indulgent new approach. Look for generously proportioned pieces. Deep cushions, graceful curves, and expanses of glass capture this season’s trend. Most noteworthy are materials that have the look and feel of fine furniture…all designed to elevate your outdoor space.
Capturing the charm of natural wicker, hand-woven resin combined with sold cast aluminum frames delivers exceptional resiliency and all-weather durability. These new “delicate” designs stand up to sun, water and fluctuating temperatures with virtually no cracking or fading. Pair a settee or softly sculpted arm chair with pillows bursting with fresh color and put your feet up. Finish the look with unexpected accessories, normally kept tucked indoors, like your favorite collection of vintage vases, and the timeless whisper of gracious southern summers is yours.
European style drives another trend in elegantly brushed black scaled metals with a decidedly contemporary sensibility. Bistro comes poolside in sleek yet substantial architecturally conceived tables partnered with café chairs softened with lime tufted cushions. Hang a candle lit chandler overhead and settle into the late night breeze.
Ecologically sound, Plantation grown teak is a sustainable timber crop that is a natural choice for long-lived beauty and durability. Smooth to the touch, outdoor teak furniture ages from a young honey blonde to a soft sliver gray…all without warping or splintering through the years. The newest designs feature deep square seats, generous scale, and richness once found only in indoor rooms. Look for top-quality mortise and tenon joinery for a lifetime of style.
