F

or this summer: outdoor furniture with a sense of peace and tranquillity about them and for a fresh new perspective, accents in pure white. Decorate in country style for a light space, which will be an antidote against the grey metropolis. This open air living room resembles a veritable private paradise; here you can chill, chat, sunbathe by the poolside or sit under the shade of your gazebo. In fact, the gazebo is the key piece: extendible, it hugs you like a warm embrace, it has a refined aesthetic and is compact in size. This is a must have for those of you, who cannot go without extreme comfort under the sun. 

 

Our must haves

 

Gazebo. This one has a very simple design however, updated with a technological device, which is just a stroke of genius: the canopy can be extended to suit personal needs and requirements. Your friends will be forever in your debt, if you have them over during the hot summer days. What's more, it can be fitted with shutters, for maximum cosiness.
Sunbeds. The more the merrier. However, even just two will do. As long as they are stackable, elegant, functional and with an adjustable backrest.
Armchairs. They can be minimalist, have a soft silhouette and a deep seat and an extra-high back for maximum comfort. They can also be in wicker, for timeless elegance.

Our style notes

Pure white furniture. This touch is fresh, refined and bright: a living room in “total white” will suit any occasion, be it an afternoon with friends, a drinks party or a lazy Sunday spent with the family. And it never goes out of fashion.
Lanterns. A living room like this one invites you to spend all your time outdoors, even during the evening. Place your lanterns either on the ground or underneath the stars. This is a must have.
Wicker baskets. If you want to break up all this white, this is how you do it: a few carefully placed pieces, inspired by faraway lands. They will immediately give a cosy feel to your room. You just need a wicker basket: be it a souvenir of a recent journey or a find of a curious little shop. This piece will immediately give the feel of a distant land and add a wonderful sense of relax.
