As we stock up on antihistamines, sunscreen and bug spray, gearing up for Summer, we’re also dreaming about our favorite ways to relax in the out-of-doors. So what makes an ideal outdoor oasis?
It all starts with a chair. Generally, where you’ll be sitting drives your choice of materials and construction. Around the campfire, for example, a rugged plastic is a practical and surprisingly comfortable choice. Poolside, the options expand, from upholstery to metal.
Next, consider a table: Will you be dining and entertaining al fresco and needing a table to seat two or more? Or maybe you simply need a spot to rest your beer or s’mores. A side table is the conventional choice, or look for a stool that can serve double duty. Finally, complete your retreat with a planter full of fragrant blooms, a stocked bar cart, some ambient lighting and you’re ready for Summer!
Which of these three spots would be your pick for some quality outside time? Comment with your vote for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to The Century House!
By the Pool
Sip a cold drink and soak up the rays! These modern white 1966 Adjustable Chaise Lounges by Knoll will keep you cool and comfortable all afternoon. A low Eames Wire Table is the perfect height for setting down your drink and book while you dive into the pool. A 1966 Serving Cart completes this crisp set.
Around the Fire
Pull up these fun, durable Loll Deck Chairs and ottomans by Loll when you’re ready to cozy up around the fire pit. A Fatboy Original Outdoor Beanbag is always a hit with the kids (or kids-at-heart) and the durable Sunbrella cover washes up nicely after play time. Let the Edison the Petit Portable LED Table Lamp light your way once the fire dies down.
At the Lake
It’s time for lunch with a view! Colorful Luxembourg Stacking Chairs and Bistro Table by Fermob set the scene for a casual meal with friends. Add a Pitch Bird House or Case Study Cylinder Planter and you’ve got an inviting setting for all.
