In our recent articles here at Skyline Design, we’ve talked about a lot of the things you need to think about when aspiring to the highest standards of outdoor living. We’ve discussed the process of creating the perfect outdoor area through the most appropriate landscaping, as well as the potential that an outdoor kitchen could have for your property.
But what about the furniture you choose? Our own range should certainly leave you spoilt for choice, so we decided to tour just some of the items that may catch your eye.
We give you all of the options for outdoor patio furniture
Of course, the exact pieces of ours that you purchase depends very much on your priorities for your outdoor area, although certain aspects – such as the highest standard of design and manufacture – remain much the same throughout our range.
An obvious choice when you are looking for the ultimate patio set is some designer rattan sofas – after all, who doesn’t want to be able to curl up with a good book when the afternoon sun is out? Here, you will begin to appreciate the vast range of styles of outdoor patio furniture that we offer to ensure that whatever your desired aesthetic, you can purchase something to match.
There’s our Axis outdoor sofas, for instance, which are an unashamedly modern choice with their internal powder coated aluminium frame covered with Batyline all-weather fabric. Or for a slightly more traditional rattan look, what about the Castries sofa day bed? It is made from 100% outdoor materials and with its outer frame weave structure of heavy duty polyethylene in Kubu Grey Mushroom finish, will always be an inviting sight once the clouds clear. But a great patio set isn’t just about sofas…
With rattan’s sturdy structure helping to ensure it stands up to even the harshest elements, yet also offering the light weight needed to make such furniture easy to move and store, it would be a shame if you didn’t make the most of your patio area by investing in a broad range of furniture types. By that, we’re referring to dining sets such as the Brafta outdoor dining collection, which incorporates the kind of sumptuous seat and back cushions that may just lead you to temporarily forget you are dining in the open air.
Or if you really do want to chill out “rattan style”; why not help yourself to some wondrous rattan lounges? We can give you options like the starkly chic, yet also fully stackable Imperial lounger, and the rather spectacular Ribbon double lounger that – yes, you’ve guessed it – actually resembles a ribbon. To tell the truth, this bespoke made-to- order item looks more like garden art than anything else, but also just happens to be fully functional furniture. Throw in all of the accessories that you could conceivably need for that perfectly judged “finishing touch”; to your outdoor haven, such as Opal large trunks, sideboards or storage wardrobe or even a Pyramid shower, and you can probably begin to appreciate the lengths to which we go to make your dream patio set possible.
