With the weather warming up and summer on its way we thought we would feature Outdoor Furniture in this month’s A Few of our Favourite Things segment. We love to live outside and our mild climate means that for most of the year we can. Recently outdoor furniture has changed dramatically offering more options than the standard teak table setting and canvas slung chairs. What we look for in outdoor furniture is longevity, contemporary, classic design and comfort. There is a plethora of choice in this category, so we have started by covering a few stand-outs from some of our recent projects. Hive Knottee Outdoor Floor Lamp from Kezu We love this light, playful, textural & fun lamp! “
Tribu Mood Sofa from Cosh Living With its combination of woven strapping, timber and good proportions – we find this a very comfortable and generous sofa. Good inside and out.
B&B Italia Crinoline Armchair High Back designed by Patricia Urquiola from Space Furniture Patricia Urquiola has designed a chair that is statuesque and feminine without being too ‘girly’. The combination of the proportion, curves, woven texture and reference to lace, gives this chair a sculptural quality. In keeping with her design philosophy, it is also comfortable.
Paola Lenti Afra Armchair from dedece The shape of the Afra chair is based on a bowl or vessel. The first prototypes were woven by traditional weavers in Swaziland over an aluminium frame in Paola Lenti’s outdoor material. It fulfils dual functions of comfortable seating and a simple, stunning organic shape.
Gervasoni InOut07 Chair from Anibou This chair is a favourite. It exudes a sense of relaxation, has great form from any angle and ticks the really comfortable box. The multiple back cushions also give the opportunity to layer textures and colour.
Paola Lenti Wabi Lawn Swing from dedece This is Paola Lenti’s contemporary interpretation of the old verandah swinging chair. It is the ultimate luxury for lazing away a few hours – if you can fight off the kids!
