Love Chair

I know most people are crazy for Mr. Jonathan Adler, but somehow I didn’t get hit with the adoration bat when it comes to most of Mr. Adler’s designs. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s all good stuff, it’s just that nothing has struck me as an ‘i have to have it’ type thing. And then I see this, and somehow I finally got hit in the ‘noggin, if that’s the saying. This chair is so “sweet” it’s cute, and while I appreciate it for the irony (maybe?), I’m sure loads of people love it just ’cause it’s Adler.

Ikea Summer pieces

I have been pretty impressed with the summer furniture that Ikea produced for 2006. The lounge chairs and deck chairs resemble some higher-end designs without the scary price tag. Just to be on the safe side, I would put a good sealer on the wood to ensure it will last year after year.

Stainless Steel Bench and Stool

For outdoors or in, this bench and stool are something to consider. The prices aren’t so bad, and the style fits into the modern/minimal look quite easily…you could also use them as a coffee/side table if you wanted to…

grass armchair

I’ve always wanted to make one of these but I haven’t gotten around to it. Now there’s a kit and it will make it so much easier. You just fit the cardboard pieces together and then fill the gaps with dirt and sprinkle with grass seeds (not included).

Capital Collection Dining Set

I know this is not exactly “outdoor” weather right now, but spring is just around the corner. And this is on sale and too cheap not to show it to you. Okay, this is intended as indoor furniture, but I think visually it is probably much more suited to the outdoors. The only thing is that it will probably need a coat of rust proof paint, but since it’s “assembly required” I bet it’d be pretty easy to do before assembly. It will require a little DIY but if you’re looking for a cheap outdoor dining solution then I recommend it.

Sway Stool

I swoon. Made of 100% pure cork, which is reclaimed waste material from the bottle stopper industry, this little stool is something to take a look at.

“The central column of the stool, located directly under the spine of the user, is flexible, solid cork while the rest is perforated. The result is a seat that flexes and pivots under the weight of the user, responding to the slightest body movement. The user’s muscles remain slightly engaged to maintain balance, improving posture and circulation. Many have reported this to be a perfect seat for working at a desk or computer, enabling the user to move and rock while working and thinking. Because cork is 100% waterproof and impervious to rot and mold growth, this piece functions as well outdoors as it does in. Perfect for a bit of meditation in the garden…”

Designed by Daniel Michalik.

Approx. 18″ tall x 15″ wide x 15″ deep

Chair One

The Chair One looks like something made in the 80’s intended to look like it was made in 2020. Whatever decade it was actually made in, I love this chair. It’s weather-proofed so it would look equally great indoors or outdoors.

an exceptionally versatile indoor/outdoor seating system, the chair is one of the most original and important seating designs to come along in years. chair legs are polished anodized aluminum and seats are die-cast aluminum, cataphoretically-treated and painted in red, white or anthracite polyester powder. a concrete base version is available as well as swivel and public seating variations. the concrete base is painted transparent clear.

Heller Selene Chair

I love these stackable functional indoor/outdoor injection molded nylon chairs that are appropriate for commercial, institutional, and residential use. I could try to plug in more adjectives/descriptive phrases in that sentence, but then it might get annoying.

“Heller reissues Vico Magistretti’s stackable classic. The Selene is Included in the MoMA permanent design collection, the Vitra Museum, and leading museums around the world.”

18.5″ w | 19.5″ d | 29.5 h | 18.5″ seat height

Romance Collection by Contraforma

I saw these on design*sponge a while back and hesitated posting them because the shop’s overseas and I thought that wouldn’t be too convenient…BUT I kept thinking about them and suddenly realized that I might just have to post them anyways, regardless of the shipping costs/time.

It’s laser-cut, powder-coated steel with an oh-so-ever romantic preforated floral design…I especially love the contrasting color inside. And, it’s suitable for both indoor or outdoor use. Available in white with pink interior, graphite black with pink interior, or graphite black with white interior (on some of the pieces, but not all). Delivery outside Lithuania usually takes up to 4 weeks; Ona (that’s the store) ships everywhere. I guess I should mention there are other dimensions/designs-I encourage you to investigate further if you’re interested.

Bubble Club Side Table

So, Philippe Starck is everywhere nowadays, so if you aren’t particularly fond of him or of his designs, you’re just going to have to get used to it. Sorry. I thought this little table, an addition to the Bubble Club collection, is something to think about for your outdoor space (or even indoors if you want). It’s cute and not so ‘spensive.

Made in Italy by Kartell
