Stunning outdoor spaces

06 May 2015

The allure of sunshine is sure to get us all in a summer mood and ready to go outdoors. Make the experience a perfect escape, with the creation of your own stunning outdoor space.

This can be brought about with a medley of stylish outdoor furniture and fabrics, to bring a beautiful al fresco space to your home. This season we particularly love the quality and style of Vincent Sheppard’s outdoor furniture (who famously furnished the Royal Box at Twickenham from 1929-1988). Seen here in classic loom; the Vincent Sheppard ‘Safi’ dining chair can be dressed with the perfect fabrics to tone with your outdoor theme.

In country gardens that lend themselves to quintessentially romantic feel, we adore the Floris embroideries of the Harlequin collection. At Harpers, we like to dress your furniture with contrasting cushions and table runners, for elegant summer dining that your guests will love.

For an added statement piece, consider communal ‘pod’ style seating, such as the ‘Relax Hut’ from the Ocean collection of Alexander Rose. Creates a luxurious feel and adds a welcoming ambience garden zones.

Just in time for the coming season, lead designer Michael Metcalfe has also recently had an incredible outdoor space for his own home; along with a separate seating area for guests to sit back with a glass of something refreshingly good. This project was designed and is currently being installed by Bestall & Co.

Michael says:

“My favourite element is the tranquil seating area where you can dream away the hours listening to the soothing sounds of the water feature. Heaven.”

Working in close collaboration with Michael, Bestall & Co bring their quality craftsmanship to the project, with a wealth of expertise and professionalism. The scheme’s plans shown here include an outdoor bar built in a summer house – very much on point with an emerging trend in home design.
