For instant ambiance, there’s nothing like a rooftop deck or balcony — but finding the right pieces to withstand the weather and windy conditions can be a challenge. Combing great looks and durability with the weight and stability to stay perfectly in place, these are some of today’s most heavenly outdoor pieces from our favorite designers.
Vondom Surf Sun Chaise
A flowing wave, a soft swell in luxurious materials, Surf is a work of art that changes as the light does. Calm and casual, driven by vibrant shapes which are “refreshing, awakening, and elevating,” Surf is a statement piece as comfortable as it is stylish.
Inspired by the precise beauty of diamond cutting, the faceted shapes of Vondom’s Marquis planters make a huge visual impact. Circular or oval, in two color combinations, the planter’s polyethylene fibers ensure UV resistant style in all weather.
Moma Planters by Vondom
Designed by Javier Mariscal, Moma planters are actually a new furniture hybrid, combining the functions of a flowerpot and an outdoor table. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the planters are made of polyethylene resin, available in a range of finishes.
An elegant twist on the humble picnic table, the Hopper table is a striking creation by Belgian furniture maker Extremis. Its slanted legs and tabletop edges reference the hop poles characteristic of the beer-making Westhoek region, while the design’s easy access and comfort (the tabletop doubles as a backrest) are a nod to the hard-working tables found at the local beer festivals.
Simple lines matched with sumptuous cushions and fabrics make Maya a statement sofa for any outdoor space. Highly customizable, with a variety of components including end table units, Maya can be configured in countless ways to create a serene oasis for any number of guests.
Inspired by the Scandinavian design of the 1950s and 60s, ROAD features the clean purity of teak matched with spare, elegant cushions. The sofa’s seat is formed with a stretched canatex net, ensuring total comfort. Add the matching table and stool to create an outdoor living room that looks and feels great, anywhere.
Laze Collection by RODA
Perfectly ergonomic and utterly breathtaking, LAZE combines the natural beauty of oversized leaf shape with a high tech tubular steel frame and stretched polyester filaments. The result is a beautiful, comfortable chair that makes a stylish addition to any garden or patio.
Alura Collection by Royal Botania
Designer Kris Van Puyvelde’s collection of soft-edged, stackable outdoor furniture takes aluminum to new heights of style and comfort. In addition to chairs, relaxing chairs, and barstools, the lounger features a patented, hydraulic piston hidden inside the frame that lowers the seat and lifts the backrest and knees while lowering the feet, “setting new standards in outdoor ergonomics.”
Dome Wall Lightsby Royal Botania
Simple yet stunning, Dome wall lights feature a single tube of glass, available in clear, smoke, or amber, suspended from a spare aluminum frame, in white or anthracite.
On-the-move side tables by Cane- Line
Just like the name implies, Cane-Line’s collection of side tables are made to be moved around, going wherever the action is. Elegant and practical, the tables convert from a designer side table to a handy serving tray, thanks to their easy-to-grab handle and removable tray. Made from aluminum, in a range of sizes and colors, for maximum flexibility.
