  • 10 January 2023

Summer is approaching and we are ready to finally move our activities outdoors!
In recent years, balconies, terraces and gardens have taken on an important role and have become an integral part of the home. For this reason, open spaces should be given the same care and attention as indoors. When choosing furniture, the advice is to opt for elements that are versatile and long-lasting as well as weatherproof.
The aesthetics of the materials and the beauty of the shapes contribute to creating a cosy ambience, but with a few extra touches it is possible to convey the feeling of being in a real home extension! How? Choose your outdoor furniture according to the style and taste of your interior, in order to favour a visual continuity made of original references! There are many products on the market and you will certainly not be disappointed in your search!

In this article you will find suggestions and ideas for choosing one of the most common objects also used outdoors: chairs!

1. Stylish and elegant

If elegance and modernity are the watchwords of your home, these chairs are definitely what you are looking for! The studied shapes and the reinterpretation of fabrics and finishes moulded in innovative materials certainly lend a touch of originality and refinement to environments. Resistant and suitable for outdoor use, they will also become a special piece of your living room. One more piece of advice: if you have to combine the chairs with a solid-looking table, opt for the transparent models to create a harmonious juxtaposition of opposites; vice versa, prefer the opaque versions with a slim-line table.

4. Natural trend

This is the trend of those who love wood and earthy colours to immerse themselves in a relaxing atmosphere of well-being. The latest trends have led to a rediscovery of a return to nature that is translated into furniture with a focus on eco materials and warm tones. Perfect under porches or verandas, one just has to be careful about exposure to the elements, as these objects can be more delicate and require more care. Indoors, it impresses with its design and provides a cosy atmosphere thanks to the typical wood grains left deliberately visible.
