Practicality and comfort are the fundamental elements to furnish the terrace to perfection
It is the time to live the terrace, whatever its size, there is no better time than the middle of spring to bring this precious outdoor space back to life. It is good to check the plants and their pots, but also the furnishings to understand if something is missing, or if it is time to make replacements. In the last year, moreover, many have rediscovered the pleasure of being on the terrace and in some cases this space has been exploited for the first time, with the enthusiasm of a new project. It is therefore time to take stock of two fundamental aspects: practicality and comfort that guarantee immediate and always positive use of the outdoors. Practicality considered as the ability of furnishings and accessories to perform their functions in an optimal way, comfort as the possibility of being welcomed and indulging the relaxation that outdoor life demands. Design is the best ally in this operation, as proof by the selection of furnishings and accessories below, valid for creating the perfect ensemble for the terrace.
The first element to think about is the set of seats, possibly made up of a balanced combination of fixed elements – such as sofas and sofas – and mobile elements – such as deckchairs and other folding or stackable seats. For the first category Fermob proposes the sofa of the Belleville collection available in different sizes. The aluminum structure is available in a palette of captivating and full of energy colors, to be combined with the many other elements of the collection.
Chairs, benches, chaise longues, sofas and stools are the elements that make up the Palissade steel collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Hay that evokes the atmosphere of outdoor Provencal cafes, refined but informal at the same time.
The lines of the steel structure of the Desert seat evoke the modernist aesthetic with the characteristic geometric and essential features that are at the same time characterizing and furnishing. The textile component in the colors of the earth is made from the recycling of used plastics, transformed into yarn and woven.
It is useful and practical to have even the most agile seats available, perhaps foldable or stackable, which expand the possibility of welcoming our guests on the terrace. The Ethimo Flower collection (on the cover) includes folding and stackable chairs and also small armchairs, perfect for creating small conversation corners.
To complete the seating ensemble you need a coup-de-teatre like the Amaca daybed from the M’Afrique line by David Weeks for Moroso. An invitation to relax but also to play, declined in a refined way thanks to the chromatic intertwining of hand-made lanyards.
Loop is a complete collection of outdoor furniture made entirely of teak, one of the preferred materials for the outdoors because it combines the warmth of wood with good resistance to atmospheric agents. The coffee table in this collection is versatile, practical and fits in with various types of outdoor settings.
Very elegant is the coffee table of the T-Table line by Tribù whose top is made of lava stone from Vesuvius on which the enamel applied by hand, after firing takes on the characteristic craquelé appearance, different for each piece. Very interesting is the oval version, perfect in front of the sofa.
In the overall aesthetics of the terrace, the vases also play a very important role, which is why the elements of the Urban Jungle collection by Serax are perfect to give a touch of style.
Finally, let’s not overlook the elements of the atmosphere such as the lantern reinterpreted in a contemporary key by Koen Van Extergem who for Manutti designs Lumo, a collection of rechargeable LED lamps with remote control in three different sizes.
