Maybe it’s the traditional design or the bright white color, but these fences are definitely held in high regards by many people! Their simplicity is captivating and it’s no wonder many homeowners see them as the ultimate dream. A home with a dark exterior will wonderfully contrast the white fence, contributing to a balanced setting that is but a monochrome backdrop for the greens growing in the yard. The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away, a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so.
Weaving together stunning outdoor décor pieces with a natural texture and artistic brilliance, the latest lineup of furniture from Kenneth Cobonpue forces you to stand up and take notice. We absolutely love the iconic Peacock lounge chair that appears as majestic indoors as it does on the deck, patio or your apartment balcony. Inspired by the traditional wicker chair and the colorful vitality of a peacock, these lung chairs are absolute showstoppers. And so is the Babar modular piece that is part desk, part study and also seems to bring ample storage space. Another addition that is perfect for the tranquil rooftop corner. The company founded by Renato Roberti in 1959 is still one of the leading makers of luxury of outdoor furniture in wicker, rattan and everything else natural! That continues in 2017 as well with Roberti with the Gravity swing-sofa that sits at the heart of its new, luxurious and trendy outdoor collection. If Gravity is a bit too whimsical for your choice and you prefer something more grounded, then the Key West Collection of chic and colorful sofas, chairs and outdoor furniture should be perfect for your pool deck.
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.
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.
