Designer outdoor furnishings, a summer living at its best

Dom Perignon

Original Title : Summer living

Aware of our growing need to take full advantage of the outdoors once the warm weather arrives, designers are creating garden furnishings to rival those found indoors. At the top of the list: soft shapes, unusual combinations of materials, high quality and supreme comfort.

Designed by Henrik Pedersen, the Kay collection from Gloster revisits traditional French caning, combining it with a teak frame. The generous seat and perfectly curved backrest of this armchair provide optimal comfort in a timeless design. The cushions are available in several colours.

The Piper extendable table designed by Rodolfo Dordoni features a long-lasting Lapitec® top and stainless steel base. Its fluid lines pair beautifully with Harp chairs, an iteration of the classic string chair with form-fitting woven backs over tubular metal frames. Though contemporary, these pieces can harmoniously blend into traditional decors, thanks to their elegantly simple lines.

Supreme comfort characterizes the Dune lounge chair designed by Sebastian Herkner for Gloster. Its upholstered fabric seat cushion, backrest blankets and throw pillows are made using 3D knitting technology. The teak base and aluminium frame create an interesting contrast with the fabric.

Created by Koen Van Extergem for Manutti, the Air table with its iroko hardwood top and Duo chairs composed of two frames made of bent steel evoke both durability and lightness. Air table and Duo chairs by Manutti, available on order from Jardin 01 de Ville, jardindeville.com

The Piper sectional sofa by Roda has a curved aluminium frame with woven polyester belts for the high backrest. The warm rust-hued finish complements the array of textile colours available with this collection designed by Rodolfo Dordoni. Piper by Roda, from Jardin de Ville, jardindeville.com

The Riverside chair designed by Mac Stopa for Tonon encourages lounging, thanks to its round, enveloping form. Made of a moulded polyurethane material called “soft touch,” this lightweight chair is waterproof, fire resistant, non-toxic, and 100% hygienic. Easy to pick up and move, it can be used indoors or outdoors. Riverside by Tonon, from Jardin de Ville, jardindeville.com

Its high quality cushions and upholstery with “total outdoor technology” are completely draining, weather resistant and long wearing. Dandy by Roda, from Jardin de Ville, jardindeville.com

The slender, lightweight Torsa table by Manutti is the perfect fit for any decor. Its Scandinavian-style sculpted teak base supports a sophisticated top made of either faux marble or monochrome ceramic. Available as a coffee table, dining table or bistro table, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces. The Torsa table is surrounded by Kobo armchairs created by the same Italian company.

The sofas and armchairs in the Kobo collection by Manutti create a warm, welcoming feeling, thanks to their hand-woven rope structure. The deep, plush seating and soft curved lines offer supreme comfort and encourage relaxation. Kobo is available in two colours, anthracite and pepper.
