Our Favourite Outdoor Furniture for Summer 2017
The perfect outdoor pieces to upgrade your patio.
There’s a wave of weave rolling in this patio season. Outdoor furnishings are textural and tactile, while accessories show branchlike and faceted patterns.
Vondom’s Marquis planters (from $299) pop with their polygonal design, with a texture that’s inspired by diamond-cutting craftsmanship. gingerjarfurniture.com
Synthetic fibre rope is woven into large lyrical loops in the Babylon series of outdoor furniture by Varaschin (price on request)—worthy of the fabled city itself…or any backyard. bloomfurniturestudio.com
This three-piece patio set ($229), with svelte legs and woven seat (deep enough for the graphic pop of a pillow), fits small spaces with a big vibe. realcanadiansuperstore.ca
The Blau collection by Gandia Blasco (from $2,600) is sleek yet organic, with furniture pieces that range from loungers to an illuminated “tree.” livingspace.com
Patterned oilcloth protects and prettifies, like this “feather” design by BoConcept ($45), which brings a softer and more esoteric kind of weave to an outdoor space. boconcept.com

“The Gloster Grid line of furniture is so beautiful. The metal-and-teak combination is durable and long lasting…and the simplicity of the design works well for city, coastal and mountain clients’ homes!” broughaminteriors.com
