I'll second JPHardy in general:I searched the thread but didn't find much, so...
Anyone have thoughts on outdoor furniture?
We're in the beginning stages of re-doing our backyard. It's a pretty large project (we have a terraced backyard with a couple different gardens) so there are opportunities to intermix different designs and pieces throughout. My default is MCM, but my wife insists on more comfortable options, particularly for the patio, where we spend a lot of time with guests.
Right now we need a comfortable coach/set for the patio (I'm thinking Hay Hee lounge chairs for additional seating) and a couple lounge/chaise/Adirondack options for the fire pit and garden areas.
Any recommendations? Doesn't necessarily need to be fancy, either. Thanks!
Knoll Schultz 1966 is great for the basic pieces. Elegant, discreet, durable, classic.
Then, add some individual elements to the basic group along the way. Hopefully some serendipitous and genuine pieces, not an overly staged ensemble. Too much difference, and things end up looking like a bad lighting store, with all those cacophonous variations never intended to actually live together.
I hope that JPHardy meant "Frank Gehry" (the stuff for Heller) pieces, not "Frank Cherry" (who was a white supremacist).
Personally, I would find a Schultz x Knoll / Gehry x Heller mash-up too "cute" and trying too hard. It would remind me a bit too much of:
