Whether it exists just beyond the busiest room in the house, tucked away in a poolside gazebo, or hidden within the isolated acreage of a grand estate, the best outdoor rooms welcome guests as well as nature. To help you create the perfect bucolic setting, furniture makers have introduced a bevy of great new designs this summer — from sleek and modern to sassy and sophisticated — to complement every room outside the house. Moreover, by employing weather- tolerant materials such as mildew-resistant wood, power-coated aluminum, manmade woven rattan, and high density polyurethane, designers have made sure these pieces are built to withstand any surprise Mother Nature might deliver.



The new Tribeca outdoor furniture collection from designer Richard Frinier, in collaboration with industry innovator Dedon, incorporates six chairs and a matching dining table constructed on ultralight, hydroformed metal legs which are later woven with the German-based company’s patented all-weather Hularo woven resin. The walnut finish is reminiscent of modern Danish furniture design. dedon.de





Designer Barbara Barry created her powder- coated aluminum Bowmont lounge chair for McGuire with an eye toward 1950s designs. The collection, which is available in driftwood, bronze, or seashell white (as shown), includes numerous complementary pieces, including the Bracelet side table. kohlerinteriors.com

Lounging outdoors becomes an event in designer Richard Frinier’s Archipelago daybed for Century Furniture. The opulent design is made of CenShield-finished teak, the same finish used on luxury yachts, and includes an uphol- stered seat and two bolster throw pillows. centuryfurniture.com
