things and places for homes and gardens

Before we know it, we’ll be sitting and sipping summer drinks

Thursday 14 January 2010 - Filed under General

Not much gardening going on around here lately, but after a very spring like January day, I’m abandoning my hopes for more snow and fantasizing about that garden furniture made for evenings with cocktails. I wouldn’t mind lounging in any of these, not one bit.

Shiny and red, where wouldn’t this look good?

Tea parties in the fancy chairs, or some serious relaxing in a garden chair (bed?) that would, I’m sure, make every day feel like a vacation.

In our climate, where the furniture has to get stored for half the year, it would be so handy to stack everything up into one curious sculptural cone. Much more substantial and comfy than those folding chairs I pack away every fall.

It may not be obvious from the picture, but the white couch…inflatable. How clever!

    Yup, the shiny and red does it for me. I can see nice lazy evenings sitting on it.

    I remember those stack-ables from a magazine. Maybe Garden Design? Clever. And the top number, all carved and red…sexy! You definitely need one. Oh and that lush green back drop to set it against too! So glad to hear that spring is calling you too!

    Love the lanterns at the end. We don’t really sit down in our garden, unless it’s on the back steps. Hm, maybe that’s why I don’t get to sip any summer drinks out there! Nice finds.

    Hi Megan~~ I want that round bed. I’m dreaming of summer naps. You’re right it won’t be long. Time just flies by so fast.
