Top 10 cityhomeDESIGN Picks: Patios

3/21/2018 | cityhomeDESIGN

1. The Net Furniture Collection(by ​Kettal​)​: ​This collection is equal parts stylish and oh-so-comfy, and features dining chairs, club chairs, and tables in a multitude of color combos. It's mix-and-match design at its best.

2. Pacific All-Weather Wicker Armchair ​(by Terrain): A modern update on traditional, wicker furniture is something we can get on board with, and we love the black, powder-coated legs. They're also quick-dry and equipped with a sun-proof fabric, AKA functional and fade-resistant.

3. The Mediterranean Collection(by Granada Tile): Looking to freshen up the foundation? Good idea, and one that will make a huge difference in your patio vibes. These durable, cement tiles come in a boatload of colors and patterns, so you can go as bold or traditional as you like.

4. Stargazer Commercial String Lights(by Terrain): A basic. A staple. An absolute must-have for any proper patio (and subsequent patio party). The commercial-grade versions are super durable, which means you won't have to worry about taking them down come windy/rainy days.

5. Custom Pavilions(by ​Kettal​)​: These custom pavilions are​ out-and-out gorgeous, ​made-to-order​,​ and surprisingly easy to assemble. They come in a huge selection of colors and sizes, don't require a building permit, and can be fully or partially enclosed. ​Best possible reason to be shady as you wanna be.

6. Inheritance Chaise Lounge(by S​tephen Kenn​)​: These utilitarian lounges are veritable works of art. Composed of vintage, olive green military canvas and a steel frame, they​'​re heavy duty enough to withstand the elements. Oxblood leather straps and vintage brass buckles make them as lovely to look at as they are to lounge on​.

7. Mustache Outdoor Rug (by ​Archiproducts​)​: This polypropylene rug is hand-woven on a loom...​so the quality is​, in a word,​ unsurpassed. It's also water resistant, which means you can hose it off for easy upkeep (well-designed, low-maintenance outdoor items are underrated).

8. The Helios Lounge (by Galanter & Jones): It's a beautiful piece, this one...but there's more than meets the eye here. This plug-in lounge from Galanter & Jones is equipped with energy-efficient radiant heating that will keep you cozy on even the chilliest of late, summer evenings. Translation: you can sip and stargaze for as long as you like.

9. The Barnacle Pot Collection (by ​Terrain​)​: These handmade, glazed pots have a beautiful​,​weathered patina that will change over time​, which we love. Perhaps even better, though? They’re actually ​frost-proof​...​so you don't have to worry about leaving them outdoors year round.

10. Hamacas (by ​Coqui Coqui)​: O​ne of o​ur absolute favorite vacation spot​s​ south of the border, Coqui Coqui ​now has an on-point home goods shop. And we think these handmade​,​ fringed hammocks are just what you need to bring a little worldly luxury to your back yard.
