Hanging chairs are also extremely comfortable and wonderful although they might present a disadvantage in the fact that they need to be hung from a branch, beam or frame. Nevertheless, it’s worth the effort when you end up relaxing in a Gravity swing sofa as charming as this one. Depending on your needs, you can get this with or without a frame.

These designs are also a part of the Gravity collection. They feature the same type of graphical and sculptural frames as the hanging chair except these sit on the ground. Notice the cohesiveness resulted from the matching design elements that define all the pieces in this series.

Deck furniture usually comes in the form of chairs, benches, tables and the occasional sofa. Daybeds, on the other hand, are a bit more tricky. If you want to take the daybed or even a sofa by the pool or somewhere else where there’s no roof to offer shade, you’ll most likely want a canopy over your head. The combo could look something like this.

Simplicity is the key to comfortable outdoor furniture. The whole idea is to simplify the designs and to focus on what truly matters: functionality and comfort. There’s no need for unnecessary and purely aesthetic details unless they contribute to the overall character of the collection. This whole setting, for instance, showcases the beautiful characteristics of the wood combined with textile accents. Any combination of these pieces can look great on your deck, terrace or out in the yard, around a firepit.
