An area for entertaining and eating
Encourage conversation by moving a couple of the seating sections around the table so everybody can see each other. Bring out a movable trolley from the kitchen to use as a side table and a place to store cutlery, napkins and glassware. Get some plates from the cabinet and invite your friends over for a delicious meze platter and mouth-watering juices. A great way to end every day!
A place to relax
Combine different sections of the outdoor seating to create a sofa that suits your space. Want to make the room more cosy? It’s easy to change things up. Put the rattan armchair against the wall and push the seating sections together to make a big day-bed! Let the nesting tables work as side tables for books and magazines, or as a pedestal for a plant. Ready for an afternoon nap? Grab a few soft blankets and fluffy cushions from the cabinet and relax in the sun.
Zoom in or zoom out
As spring arrives, it’s nice to be able to do the same things that we do inside, outside. Create a relaxing spot where you can focus while others hang out close by. A curtain doubles up as a room divider, so you can choose whether you want to work in privacy or socialise. Stay comfortable with an adjustable chair and a desk at the right height. Store your laptop or tablet in the large cabinet when you’ve finished!
Get ready to exercise
Make space to do what you love. If you’re a yoga fan, why not unleash your inner yogi by making an on and off space to practise? When you’re done, keep your equipment in the cabinet. Use the top as a mini meditation spot by adding some green plants, incense and candles to get you in the mood. Put some seat pads together to make a comfy meditation cushion – simple and clever!
