We had the honor of designing this fun, outdoor space for a family of four.  We new they wanted to keep the look timeless yet liveable.  That is what led us to using varying shades of neutrals.  This allows the homeowners to change the pillows and accessories up with each season or as the trends change.

The constructed space was full of texture – rock floors, cooking area, and a textured, beamed ceiling.  The challenge for us was furnishing it with interesting items without causing it to read as visually “messy”.  Sensory overload was not our goal for an area meant for relaxing.  We used LEE Industries and Lane Venture seating pieces, covered in subtly patterned Sunbrella fabrics for durability and interest.  Keeping these looking relatively “quiet” & simple allowed us to go bold elsewhere and add interesting accessories.

This whole area was centered around comfort.  This place works like an indoor room with the added benefit of being outdoors.  We are all about stylish comfort and this area illustrates that beautifully.  By using LEE and Lane Venture upholstery we were able to create a comfortable place to relax.  We also added sconces above the tv, large lamps on the console, and a chandelier above the dining table for extra lighting.

“This space definitely has a ‘wow’ factor, yet it is still practical. The homeowners really understood the importance of creating a room where you can sit and relax with your family. By using comfortable upholstery like LEE and Lane Venture, the space is very impressive but also remains inviting to guests. Notice the copper outdoor lanterns from Visual Comfort. These are classic, add a bit of sparkle without being garish, and will age nicely over time. ”
