With summer firmly here, life outside seems more enticing than spending time indoors. And it is the backyard, patio, or the poolside deck that takes up most of our time each evening, as we bask in the warmth of dusk. It helps to have a luxurious array of outdoor décor that serves you well in the months to come, as you plan for fall parties and even early winter celebrations in the yard. Few offer a better range of luxurious and enduring outdoor décor like Tribu and today we shed a light on their gorgeous Mood Collection designed by Studio Segers. An ultra-luxurious, resilient and all-weather collection of outdoor décor, we first stumbled upon Mood as we took a look at the exquisite Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza. The striking collection in wood comes with a handwoven Tricord body that is water-resistant. Each of the lounge chairs, daybeds and club chairs comes in either stonegrey or earthbrown, ensuring that your outdoor décor has a natural vibe and blend into the earthen landscape. The best part about this versatile outdoor seating series is how you can leave them uncovered even on those drizzly days, without worrying about damage from rain. Plush cushions, smart low benches from the Mood collection and beautiful lighting can be used to complete your charming and relaxing patio for the perfect staycation. A great way to enjoy the sights and sounds around you as you bask in warm summer glow; even while being draped in luxury.
This viewing platform by Austrian architect Zamp Kelp, was created for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany. Curiously sited on the border of an old quarry, the platform juxtaposes a statuesque staircase made using quarry stone with a spectacular cantilevered glass and steel platform. Architectural studio Cooke Fawcett designed a 3.5-metre-wide and thirty-two-metre-long raised platform, that spans the width of a multistorey car park in Peckham, south-east London. Sited on the car park’s rooftop deck, the elevated steel and hardwood timber promenade was completed this year. Called the Peckham Observatory, it offers views across the London skyline as well as the capital’s much overlooked southern neighbourhoods.
Those who love modern design often prefer a modern landscape when it comes to their outdoor spaces. While the sleek, contemporary look of a well-planned yard may seem unattainable, the use of native plants can make it surprisingly easy to maintain a yard that’s every bit as interesting as the inside of your home! It’s always helpful to consult an expert when it comes to choosing the best plants for your space, but the tips featured in today’s post will get the ball rolling as you plan a strategy for your yard. If you’re drawn to plants that are a bit trickier to maintain than native greenery, you can always place them in planters to cultivate a few of them at a time or switch them out with the changing seasons as needed. Keep reading for modern landscaping tips and some stunning outdoor vignettes that are sure to inspire you.
Nature has always held an abiding allure for people, offering many marvels that we strive to comprehend and conquer, or simply ponder and peruse. With intelligent thought, design and technology, engineers and architects have surmounted numerous challenges in order to provide new perspectives on nature. Viewpoints and vantage points are especially attractive design propositions. Those with unusual forms and gravity defying angles capture our imagination, affording countless pleasing views of nature’s magnificent bounty. The recent solar eclipse—a total eclipse visible within a band across the United States on 21 August 2017—was a reminder of our desire to view and observe the power of nature. The following physical viewpoints each give viewers a chance too interact with nature in different ways.
