Garden Furniture: Revamp your outdoor space Italian style

With summer well and truly upon us, the garden, the terrace and the patio beckon.

With the good grace of reliable weather in many parts of the country, Italy holds unique expertise in outdoor furnishing, combining artisanal manufacturing with indisputable style. We’re here to offer you a few tips on how to give your beloved outdoor space some fresh appeal, accompanied by Vivendo’s range of modern outdoor chairs and tables.

The outdoor lounge chair is a tough nut to crack. What springs to mind is often the deck chair or recliner, which tend to lack the superior style of other designer chairs. Vivendo’s Bosia collection offers an outstanding combination of design and gratifying comfort and functionality.

Above all, the outdoor space is your place to sit back and relax. Made for this very purpose, the Bosia outdoor lounge chair features a larger seat than the average dining chair, with a curved backrest for added comfort. Its low structure makes this metal chair feel much closer to more familiar designs of outdoor chairs, encouraging you to stretch out in the sun. Stacking away for the winter months, this outdoor lounge chair is a practical solution for all design lovers.

Dining in the garden can be a relaxed affair or a real occasion. Vivendo’s Bosia collection boasts more traditional dining chairs, well suited to both events. The Bosia outdoor dining chair’s slender frame and smooth lines make it a beautiful, understated addition to the garden or terrace. It is perfectly adaptable and can play the role of a simple, functional dining chair, as well as a sleek and stylish showpiece, especially when chosen with its unconventional wooden back. Try the outdoor armrest dining chair, in grey here for example, for a more distinguished and comfortable choice.

Of course your outdoor space would not be complete without a table for card games or al fresco dining. Think carefully, as a well-chosen table can transform your outdoor environment into a staple dining destination. Vivendo’s Cino collection strives to do just this, offering perfect companions for your Bosia chairs.

The Cino outdoor dining table range is a wonderfully simple expression of Italian contemporary design. Offered in a wide range of colours, you’re sure to find a version that complements the colours of the local environment and works for your space. Always ensuring practicality, expert Italian manufacturers Vermobil have included clever self-levelling legs for uneven surfaces, and the table comfortably seats six people.

Similar to its larger cousin but better suited as a setting for cocktails and nibbles, the Cino outdoor square dining table maintains the minimalist aesthetic and is another highly versatile choice. It lends itself sublimely to halcyon moments with someone special as a candle burns and the sun sets.

Scaled down even further, the Cino outdoor stool can act both as an informal seat or a low surface for drinks. Outdoor furnishing has the virtue of being highly adjustable, so this light piece of furniture is ideal for placing and replacing as the season progresses.

Our partners at Vermobil are also the manufacturers behind a more traditional chair. The Delia outdoor folding dining chair, in bronze here as an example, features familiar slats and looks right at home on a terrace or patio. This design has been favoured for centuries, and is perhaps the quintessential outdoor dining chair of the 20th Century. However, this product’s gentle curves and vibrant colours makes it a standpoint product all the same.
