Shades, stylish and precious refuges

Elegant gazebos and parasols to create an ideal oasis sheltered from the sun’s rays

The shaded area is a very important element in the design of the outdoor space, especially if it is a space to be used not only in the evening but also during the day. In the garden, on the terrace, in the pool area, the shade is a precious refuge to shelter from the sun’s rays. Everyone looks for it in the warmer months, which is why it is necessary to choose a structure that creates a large shaded area in which to place the right furniture. A dining table with chairs, chaise longue, sofas and armchairs: there are many functions that we can attribute to this cool corner that guests will also appreciate. After all, in summer, on all occasions outdoors, most people prefer not to spend too long a time under the sun’s rays. Eating, chatting and simply relaxing is more pleasant if we can count on a gazebo or a large parasol. These are, in fact, the most suitable types of furniture if we want an extended shaded area. The classic umbrella, in fact, could be too small and discount the movement of the sun. So let’s see some of the most elegant and functional structures to conquer the shade and share it with our guests.

Parasol by Talenti

Parasol by Talenti

Parasol by Talenti is reminiscent of a classic large umbrella in appearance, but in reality it is an extremely advanced piece of furniture from the point of view of functions, as well as pleasant from the point of view of design. Parasol comes in numerous variations including Athena, Venus and Vulcan. The textile component is made of polymeric materials resistant to atmospheric agents, opening and closing are extremely easy and the Athena and Vulcano models can be tilted up to 50 ° to obviate the movement of the sun and still guarantee shade in the space reserved for the furnishings. The structure is in aluminum in three colors, even the fabric has three color variations, all neutral and elegant.

But among all the elements of the collection, the one most devoted to creating a corner in the shade is called Set 06. It is a circular shaped sofa with a backrest placed on half of the shape, a side table and a central parasol. A complete and original element.

Ombrina by Antonio Sciortino for Roda

Ombrina is a minimal and graceful gazebo that almost looks like a natural element. It consists of a thin steel structure and a “canopy” in polyester or acrylic straps with a cotton finish. The straps create shade but at the same time let the air through for a fresh and natural effect.

Cabana Lodge by Henrik Pedersen for Gloster

With its solid cedar wood structure and Thuia fabric, it recalls Japanese architecture. And it is in fact an architectural element rather than a piece of furniture: inside, it can accommodate simple but comfortable beds or benches with wooden seats and cushions.
