A White Summer

It is already August but summer is still here to stay, hopefully into September. A few suggestions for a cool summer look with white outdoor furniture. To start I hope you would admire the above outdoor sofa Grand Plié, by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba for Driade and in the foreground the Cocoa sofa by Marc Sadler for Danese.
White is often the protagonist of outdoor furniture, I am sure you all agree that it immediately gives a sense of freshness and it is always exalted by the lush green of the vegetation. Perfect when pure, perfect when blended with strong colors like red or yellow, perfect with black, always a winning combination.

Modular sofa Basket by Roda with metallic structure. Magic the suspended aluminum light Inside Out by Casamania. On the foreground a fun little ceramic table which could also serve as an extra sitting place called The Fool On The Hill by Moroso.

Re-trouvé table and chairs by Patricia Urquiola for Emu, so ethereal and feminine.

A more masculine Diamante table by Ydf, in aluminum, with plastic chairs Lisboa by Serralunga. On the left the unusual shape, at least for a lamp, of Uovo light by Fontanaarte.

Chairs Inout 109 and Sweet 27 designed by the very creative Paola Navone for Gervasoni are light and comfortable and can surely enhance any corner of a garden, patio, terrace. All images above were taken on the grounds of a XVI century castle in the Franciacorta area of the Italian Lombardy region.

White is not a trend but a timeless elegant choice for any space.

Great finds! I think white outdoor furniture is similar to the white hotel bed ideology...if it's white, you know it's clean. If outdoor furniture sits outside (which most of it would), it can get dirty very easily. So white is easy to clean and tell if its something you want to sit on.

But these furniture pieces also take the design to the next level as well...
