Patricia Urquiola – Design

It seems that the great British weather will eventually get warmer and nicer. There is still hope. So there will be a time for barbecuing and taking one’s feet out of one’s socks. When this happens, there is nothing better than having your garden ready for it. And we need furniture to sit and enjoy…

“Nautica” Swing chair – Mut Design

This swing is one of those pieces that you simply want to have in your garden or outdoor space. I will have my very own garden in London very soon, and so far I quite like the idea of sipping my G&T after work while rocking away in one of these.

During my years living in Barcelona, I used to introduce some pieces from Gandia Blasco into every garden design, at least a little something.

NESTREST by DEDON

Can’t you picture yourself barefoot, reading a book and swinging under a big tree on a summer afternoon? I certainly can. Add maybe a drink and the right company and this is what life is about. Nestrest is this amazing piece of furniture/lifestyle created by Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety for DEDON. The concept is pretty…
