Tres Al Fresco
You’ll be made in the shade with the Tres Al Fresco Daybed Reclinable designed by Jose Gandia for Gandia Blasco. It’s the classic cabana with a modern twist; anodized aluminum, adjustable shades, side-by-side reclining 20-inch square pillows and 100 percent beach chic-ness. The mattress dries quickly and is perfect for relaxation right out of the water while the draw-down shades ensure compete privacy when the heat is too much to handle.
Add some color to your life with the Chumy Chaise from Lebello. The modish ergonomic lounger provides a simple center curve that floats mid-air for back-wrapping support and flexibility. It’s comfy, curvy and oh so ooh la la, with a practical side too – aluminum tubing and all-weather wicker make it weatherproof, despite harsh heat and summer showers. The shady storage space below is sized just right to stash your latest kontakt reads. Available in orange or aqua.
Teak a look at this. The modern, stylish and truly unique teak and canvas deckchair by Lido is weather resistant and offers an interesting combination of wood and stainless steel, with a canvas sling tying it all together. Displaying a maritime-inspired design with eye-catching appeal, the bold wavy lines make enjoying the al fresco life a breeze. Sip your sangria, bask on the beach and invoke your inner sun goddess – this recliner has it all.
Exceptional design oozes a harmony between form, function and inspiration, and Richard Frinier achieved just that with Dedon’s new Zen-like Spa outdoor collection. The bronze-hued hand-woven fiber is accentuated with reflective metallic particles, resulting in a discreet lighting effect symbolic of positive energy in Asian cultures. Slightly elevated with curve-accentuated seats, you’ll feel like you’re floating on air. Fear not, it is weather-resistant, UV-resistant and environmentally friendly, giving you yet another reason to rest easy and enjoy the view.
With a nod to the more nostalgic times, this avant-garde take on backyard entertaining proves to be a modern marvel when it comes to outdoor furniture. The Canasta collection by B&B Italia is a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll, with sturdy Vienna straw woven to promise long lasting style. The low-backed chair is the perfect perch at the end of a hot day, and the collection’s options offer fixed or removable cushions in a variety of colors and mix-and-match striped and floral-patterns. The frame is available in white or bronze.
