With so many outdoor furniture designs to choose from it’s easy to get distracted. Sure, you should have some lounge chairs by the pool but that doesn’t mean you can’t also have stylish high-back armchairs under a pergola or on the deck. The Cala chairs have a strong visual presence thanks to their high and wide backrests decorated with rope fabric which acts as a lattice.
You want your lounge chairs to be adjustable and easy to move around so you can choose the perfect position and placement when you’re relaxing outdoors.

You can rarely find a picnic table that’s practical and good-looking at the same time. We’re not even talking about the portable kind.

The thing that matters the most in the case of deck furniture or anything for the outdoors is comfort but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the looks. Some designed manage to incorporate both elements and one example is the Australis sun bed which can double as a sofa if you just let the backrest go all the way down. You can see here how several of these can be used to set up comfortable lounge areas both indoors and outdoors. You can separate the spaces with Sticks, these funky dividers made of lots of rods attached to a wooden base.

Finding the right style for the furniture to be used outdoors is not a very simple task.

Treat your outdoor deck, terrace or poolside area as an extension of the interior living spaces. Transpose everything you enjoy indoors in a more open environment and choose the appropriate furniture pieces. For instance, set up a comfortable and relaxing lounge area furnished with pieces such as the Pulvis and Milos sun loungers to which you can also add a daybed or a sofa.
It’s important to have a certain amount of flexibility when furnishing and decorating outdoor spaces.
