Pinabel Rouze. Outdoor. December 10th , 2017.
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.
If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
The Balad comes in two different versions, the H38 outdoor lamp that is slightly larger and its more mobile, smaller cousin the H25 outdoor lamp. Even with its larger radius, the H38 is still easily transportable and can be charged to give you 14 hours of continuous use. Of course, if you have a power outlet close by, then you will not have to worry about charging it as well! The unique LED technology of the lamp gives you two different brightness settings and you can even alternate between a warm 4000k light and a colder 6000k light. The smaller H25 offers you all the same features as the H38, but has a battery life of around 12 hours. Two different metal stands combined with the colorful variants of Balad allow you to create multiple lighting compositions for your serene backyard, small courtyard or urban balcony.
Devil’s Corner was designed in 2015 by Australian architectural practice Cumulus Studio. Located in Apslawn, Tasmania, Devil’s Corner is one of Tasmania’s largest vineyards. A project for Brown Brothers, Devil’s Corner incorporates a cellar door, lookout and marketplace. Created using a a series of timber clad shipping containers, the lookout encourages visitors to explore the vineyard through a number of curated views. The horseshoe-shaped Grand Canyon Skywalk is a see-through, cantilevered bridge. Jutting out seventy feet from a side canyon in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is elevated at a dizzying 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. Designed and engineered by Lochsa Engineering & MRJ Architects, the Skywalk was commissioned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe who manage it as a way to accrue money from tourism.
