Do you have enough space to relax in your garden? With gardens tools occupying more space and children spending more time outside playing, there sure will be a space crunch in the garden, porch and patio areas. Outdoor storage containers can do double duty as benches and ottomans for nice and comfy seating as well as to store things handy and ready. You can store garden tools, seeds, fertilisers and water hoses. You may keep seasonally used personal effects like raincoats and gumshoes, and children’s playthings and sports goods. Most of the times, they can be used as dumping place for whatever we think as clutter or extra inside the house.
If you and your family like to spend a lot of time on your patio, you probably want to have a good atmosphere while you enjoy your time there. You wish for some warm air outdoors, clear sky and good decoration to keep you comfortable. Sometimes we can’t get all of this, or even none of it, but outdoor curtains for patio may help a lot. How? Let me explain. You can use a lot of different window treatments in your home, there are many draperies that will improve the look of your home and allow you to have your own privacy. But what about all those draperies that offer a bit more than just decoration? Good looks are not everything and you can find practical drapes that will show you a different use for all window curtains.

Royce Nelson sees commonality between his two primary passions and professions: design and skateboarding. “Both are about creating fluid lines with balance and power,” says the San Francisco area designer. (A bit of trivia: An “ollie” is a no-handed aerial skateboarding trick.) Nelson also understands grand statements, so when we decided to bring a large-scale, versatile outdoor collection into our assortment, he was a natural choice. “Design should be fun,” says Nelson – which in the case of the Ollie Collection doesn’t negate its practicality. Made of weather-resistant synthetic rattan and responsibly harvested solid teak, this clean-lined, materially compelling collection suits a variety of large outdoor settings, from patio to poolside. Suitable for residential, hospitality and contract use. Seat Cushions (sold separately) are available in Sunbrella® “Linen” or “Meridian” acrylic fabric, which resists fading or mildewing, even when exposed to extremes of sunlight, temperature and moisture.
Rusa is the work of KAA Design, a Los Angeles-based firm known for its work on the homes of Tom Hanks and Larry Ellison, and for commercial spaces like Hugo Boss. With beauty and craft as the cornerstones of their practice, this integrated team of architects and designers worked together to develop this collection. Rusa (2010) is all about casual comfort – an emphasis that was inspired by a trip Grant Kirkpatrick took to New Zealand. By spending time in small vacation homes called “bachs,” where people relax and connect with nature, the designer discovered innovative ways to create a rural retreat without sacrificing clean, contemporary design. He returned home and translated those ideas to the furniture the team was creating, employing simple joinery and classic lines to achieve a modern aesthetic. Suitable for residential and contract use.
