British writer Henry James once said, “Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” Alas, who wouldn’t agree…
What better way to spend your summer afternoon than lingering over a poolside lunch on a Porta Forma Mercer dining table. This gorgeous set is a stunner with it’s rose gold thick aluminum frame with contrasting pearlized black wicker seats, and cushions soft as clouds. Complimented by the tempered glass top this stylish set has a luxuriously modern feel with a touch of retro.
Santorini here we come…the Ravello seating collection also by port forma in blue and white is the perfect beach palette. The curved basket weave design is fresh alternative to your typical wicker designs. This color scheme and silouhette blend well into a variety of homes styles as well even with the organically shaped white table that plays off as clean and crisp.
Circular and morphed shapes are a strong trend we are seeing in modular outdoor furniture. The Hyde Park collection by Front Gate features extra-deep seating, all weather wicker and thick high density cushions. While all these functional necessities are checked off the list, the uber cool factor at the top of our list is the circular shape that is visually appealing and allows more intimacy when visiting with guests.
The Baleares modular day bed is the perfect poolside companion. This beautiful circular bed pulls apart to become two curved benches and round ottoman, or altogether as one large day bed. The canopy allows for privacy or simply taking a break from the sun with the attached sunbrella shade with 98% UV protection, in crisp white cane and brightly colored cushions this day bed is playful and functional.
For simple modern shapes for outdoor living at it’s best, Restoration Hardware never disappoints. The Aegean Collection features low sitting contemporary designs with superior materials, clean lines and perfectly constructed metalwork. The Jigsaw Designers love the white metal framed silhouettes for light bright seaside style. Create an outdoor living space or relax poolside in the chaise double lounger.
