Chill Out

METEO | Kettal Studio
The first collaboration between Kettal and designer Konstantin Grcic, this simple yet stylish parasol aims to explore the largely untapped design potential of this classic sun shade system. The oversized umbrella is supported by a sheet metal or cast iron base plate in a selection of the brand’s signature neutral colour palette. Likewise, users can pick between a basic model with a manual pulley system or high-end version with an integrated gas piston for easy use.

Hopper Combo | Extremis

Ideal for exterior office meetings and team lunches, two sloped access points along the bench allow for a graceful entry and exit (think business skirts and delicate dress pants), whereas comfortable chairs make long meetings more bearable. The Hopper even comes with a variety of customizable features including seating for 4, 6, 8 or 10 people (in bench or chair options – or both), and galvanized steel or powder-coated aluminum legs.

Outdoor | Philips Hue
Philips Hue’s new range of outdoor luminaires bring functionality, safety and ambiance to a variety of outdoor spaces. Fully controllable through the Philips Hue app, Philips Hue Switches, Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Apple Homekit, the lights can be programmed to turn on or off according to desired needs. Geofencing and timer options also bring security and peace of mind.

EMU Terramare Series | Coalesse
Designed by Studio Chiaramonte/Marin for Coalesse, the EMU Terramare Series combines the classical silhouettes of cane-and-canvas outdoor furniture with sleek materials. Tables, armchairs and lounge seating in die-cast aluminum add a modern twist, while water repellent cushions and eco-leather accents ensure comfort and weather resistance. The lounge seating contains curved armrests for comfort, and is fully customizable, available in seven colours and three seating options.

Amphora | Bover Barcelona
Bover Barcelona’s new Amphora Lamp pays tribute to the terracotta amphora vases that traditionally decorated gardens and terraces. Designers Alex Fernández Camps and Gonzalo Milà have set synthetic wicker baskets on a tripod base made of aluminum and stainless steel, making the lamps decorative and sturdy. The lamps are available in light beige and rattan brown.

Asian Traveler | Roche Bobois
In celebration of its 40th anniversary in the United States, Roche Bobois hired New Yorker Stephen Burks to design a collection of outdoor furniture that celebrates international, innovative style. Enter his sculptural Asian Traveler chair, made of woven leather-textured polyurethane cord, and Dacron foam cushions. Available in a variety of colours, the chair’s signature element is an oversized hood that emulates a tent, allowing users to hunker down and camp out in the comfort of their backyards.

Serpentine Outdoor Sofa | Ligne Roset
With padded cushions that literally slither through a slender metal frame, Ligne Roset’s Serpentine Outdoor Sofa is both fitting in style and name. Designed by Éléonore Nalet, the sofa contains a light, charcoal aluminum body, polyurethane foam and polyester fibre cushions, and removable covers available in ecru or taupe.

CANVAS | Canadian Tire

Canadian Tire’s 2018 Backyard CANVAS Collection features a range of furniture, lighting, tableware, outdoor rugs and decorative accessory options to style any kind of outdoor space. The line of new gas fire tables and pits, for example, feature sleek modern designs, classic finishes and sturdy frames for durability and ease of use all summer long.

10th | Exteta
In recognition of its 10th anniversary, Exteta has collaborated with designer Massimo Castagna to launch a new furniture collection that brings the diversity of interior design, out: leather, fabrics, solid wood, stone and other materials are paired together in tables, chairs, sun loungers and couches.

Skalen Collection | Jardin de Ville

The Skalen Collection, a highlight of its Les Jardins brand, stands out for its simplicity. Lounge, dining, bar and sun chairs, as well as a modular sofa, are fabricated using soft cushions by Cuscini and a clean teak body. Though initially honey-coloured, the Duratek teak eventually fades into a soft grey over time, resulting in a beautiful assortment of outdoor furniture.

2018 Patio Collection | Lowe’s

Lowe’s 2018 Patio Collection brings a variety of decorative solutions to an equally diverse range of outdoor areas. From Adirondack chair ottomans to outdoor gazebo fans and lantern-turned-bluetooth speakers, the collection has items for any set-up. Especially striking is a line of umbrellas, pillows and dining pieces in a vibrant Pantone teal and cool cream that are sure to make a lasting impression.


STRATA Beam Line | Landscape Forms
Designer Jess Sorel has juxtaposed warm slated wood surfaces against the strength of cast concrete, and has used melastone in a full colour palette for easy customization. The new 31”- and 69”-long benches join an existing 80”-long option available with or without arms and backs,  bringing solidity and style to outdoor dining settings.

Grillo Forge│Grillo

The Grillo Forge is a full outdoor cooking and socializing area that provides appeal, distinction and differentiation to backyards. Grillo Forge is almost infinitely scalable, and the design of the barbeques and flexibility of the kitchens lends them to catering for large numbers. The construction is hardwood timber surrounds and porcelain work surfaces, with steel frame and planters. The layout contains two cooking points: a gas grill and the Chef’s Anvil.
