Outdoor furniture
I've been thinking about furniture for outdoors
ie- decks and patios, etc...

post your favourites here...

i'll start...
my deck is pretty small and in an urban environment...
so this folding aluminum chair is perfect...
love the simple lines and the industrial feel...
also looks like it will be low maintenance in terms of the elements...
and the price is nice-$24.99

love that chair softie...



i love outdoor furniture that looks so good that it can function indoors...
these pieces from west elm are nice...
the table and chairs are metal and are weather-resistant, and the table can hold an umbrella...
i also love the david hicks-esque design...



the lounger seats two, has 3 positions, and is made of weather-resistant wood...plus the cushions are washable and come in 5 colors...

now if only i had a yard!

yesss!!!

great thread

soft that aluminum chair is great... a modern take on a traditional shape i think

and kimair i love that first blue and white set
the geometric design on the chair and table combined with the white and blue color combination reminds me of greece and the beautiful islands there...
definitely a good thing

I like emeco all the time
it's beautiful plus simple and sturdy quality.
and I have a weakness for aluminum.

cushions just make me mental with outdoor furniture though...
there is always the issue of where do you store them?...
they are bulky and take up a lot of room- but you can't leave them outside...

such a dilemma......

^^ i know what you mean

we've got cushions on the set we have outside on our porch..
yet we're always shuttling them in and out of the house to avoid the rain and other elements..
so annoying

There was a little outdoor furniture feature at the end of issue 66 of Surface.. which I finally got around to finishing flipping through

So, here are some of the things they featured...

Tatu by Stephen Burks...
Galvanized steel, powder coated furniture..
stools/tables..

I thought these looked cool and could be interesting as outdoor furniture...

artecnica.com

side table, coffee table, and stool...

an additional image... looks like you can store stuff within the tables..

maybe that's where you would keep your bug spray or something like that if you used these outdoors :p

Thanks, softgrey!

I've been looking for some low cost patio chairs that are simple and silver in color and those Ikea folding chairs are perfect!
