Relaxing outdoor furniture looks we love: hanging chairs, day beds and resort style lounges
So you’ve scored yourself a beautiful balcony with a view, or fantastic patio to look out onto your leafy Singapore street. You’ve got to enjoy it in style. From day beds for lazy afternoons, to hanging chairs and outdoor lounge sets, here are the outdoor furniture looks we need…
The day bed
Kicking back with a book… sneaky weekend naps. Need we say more? You might recognise the style of Singaporean brand Ohmm (pictured top) – this local label is behind the sun loungers by the spectacular rooftop pool at Marina Bay sands.
For a more compact way to lie back, the combination of stainless steel and rope webbing of the Elias Daybed (available at Nook & Cranny), below, hits the resort-style sweet spot.
The hanging chair
The classic swinging love seat is still spotted in Singapore gardens (and green spaces around the city), but the stylish hanging chair is what we’re about. Love tropical style? The rattan swinging seats from Byron Bay Hanging Chairs, above, and Balinese-style Elements Concepts are exemplary.
Self-suspended cocoon chairs in handwoven polyethelyne are another popular pick to withstand wear and tear. We’d love to hide away in that quiet spot below, surrounded by lush greenery – we found it at the Orchard by the Park condo in Tanglin.
The outdoor set
When you have more space to play with and want to enjoy sunny afternoons and balmy nights with friends over drinks, resort-style is our thing. Our dream outdoor set? The modular MU range by Dedon (available in Singapore at Xtra) – the brand that’s defined contemporary outdoor style. Picture yourself here:
