Outdoor Furniture

Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.

The MB 5 can be used as a side table or stool, and since it’s made out of self-cushioning polymer, there’s some comfort provided as well. Indoor or outdoor friendly.

El Ultimo Gritto: K Blocks Table/Seating

Modular furniture can be extremely handy to have. Though this looks to be an excellent size for children, I’m sure adults could utilize the pieces just as well.

“The K Block is a modular object which on its own is a stool or extra seating and when not in use can be stacked in a sculptural way. Combinations of the K Block can be used to resolve different furniture requirements…Custom colors are also availale (minimum order is 100 pieces per special custom color). Suitable for outdoor or indoor use by children or adults alike.”

Extremely durable industrial polyethylene plastic.

Extremis – picnik by wynants & lust

I love the simplicity of this picnic table which is constructed with one plate of .4″ thick aluminum.

“the picnik can be used as a modular system, combining pieces to create a larger grouping. available in sky blue, apple green, white, earth and khaki. now available in a white or black high glass finish. high gloss finish can also be specified.”

approximately. 36.2″ x 57.9″ x 29.3″.

If you order now it will be here by spring break.

Concrete Console

The good news is if you can’t afford to buy this console, you might be able to make one like it. Concrete certainly adds an industrial feel to a space or room, and provides a nice contrast to other materials.

Outdoor or Indoor use.

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″Ł square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

Biwing Table by Reform

It’s easy to become desensitized to prices these days- especially since it seems like everything you want is way more than you can spend. So, that’s when you have to grow up and start saving for the things you really want, which means you’ll appreciate them that much more when the item of desire actually arrives, right? All this jabber is just so I can make a point that sometimes it’s worth the big price tag.

“The Biwing Table is an instant classic with its sleek curves and functional shelves tucked below the surface at both ends. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the A1 is made from a single sheet of 1/4″ aluminum and created without any hardware or adhesives. The minimalist modern form is materia efficient and 100% recyclable.”

Understated minimal chairs perfect for the outdoors.

“Made of polypropylene with glass fiber, the light and stylish Air Chair is stackable, functional, and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Low Cut Stool

I suppose this could be considered the I B Pop chair’s side table and/or coordinating stool, and for the price, it’s worth posting.

“This solid stool or side table (it doesn’t matter what you use it for: It works brilliantly as either.) has a secret. low cut can fold flat in a fraction of a second. Ideal as extra seating you can bring out just when you need it or as outdoor furniture that can be stored away neatly until the weather finally lets you sit outside. When low cut is unfolded it takes up almost no space at all.”

Maximum load 150kg.

360 x 345 mm

Available in (outside/inside) Blue/black, black/blue, white/red , white/white ,red/white

I B Pop Chair

This is certainly a nice option for seating, though if you live in the U.S., you might have to pay a little bit more for shipping…

“i b pop has such a unique form, because we have taken a single sheet of plastic and turned it into a stunning contemporary chair. i b pop is perfect as a dining or occasional chair and can also bring easy style to any outdoor space. The colour options with a different outside and inside colour are ideally suited for making matching sets or inverted colour combinations. i b pop works well in the contract market as a reception chair or as seating in bars, caf├ęs or clubs.”

zanotta veryround seat by louise campbell

Yes, it’s a chair. Kind of hard to absorb at first, but then you get used to it. I think it’s beautiful, and most likely worth every penny (if you’ve got that many pennies to spare).

“an interesting and original piece that is signed by the designer, veryround is a masterpiece in technological construction. it is made of a single .08″ thick steel sheet frame which is cut by a three-dimensional laser, colored white and varnished for outdoor use.”

Jellyfish Chair and Ottoman

This is not a bad price for outdoor furniture, especially to have the chair and ottoman included in one price.

“Architect Wiel Arets calls Jellyfish (2005) a ‘modern reclining lounger’ because of how its gently shaped base gives it a relaxing, subtle movement. The result is a dynamic seating experience in which the sitter, chair and environment all interact. This was the goal of the designer, who wanted a lounge chair that encouraged active use, while also bringing a clean, straightforward aesthetic to its surroundings. A handy sidekick to the chair is the Jellyfish Ottoman that can be used as a footrest or for holding drinks. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, Jellyfish is UV stable and has a weight resistance of 350lbs.”

Aero Lounge Chair

To find an outdoor lounge chair under $250 is pretty good, but to find one that looks this good is great. Normally I’d prefer wood for the out-of-doors, but this particular design has me sold on aluminum.

“An elegant and classic ladderback aesthetic distinguishes the sleek Aero Collection from ordinary indoor/outdoor furniture. A smooth lacquer finish resists scratches for low-maintenance use indoors and out.”
