Six Summer Furnishings

Rejoice, readers! Summer is officially here. From lazy afternoons in the backyard, to impromptu evening gatherings with friends and family, it’s time to toast the season in comfort and style. Today I’m delighted to share a few of my favorite furnishings and design picks that celebrate everything summer: sunshine, warm breezes, and clear, star-filled nights.

Sleek and Sunny Sofa

First, bring vibrant colors indoors with this summery ensemble in sunny yellow and sleek white featuring Hickory Chair’s chic Albert Sack upholstery collection. The clean lines and classic styling of these pieces mix well with a variety of design styles.

Coastal Cool

Add sculptural, coastal-inspired interest with Arteriors’ Bodega driftwood lamp. The natural, textural form and white linen shade of this piece have a beach-y, casually elegant vibe.

Of course, you’ll want to prepare you patio for fabulous outdoor entertaining. McGuire Furniture’s gorgeous Communal Dining Table and Key chairs from the Barbara Barry collection are a perfect choice for any setting. These weatherproof beauties are versatile, supremely comfortable and create an easy, relaxed look.

Light (and warm) the Night

On cool evenings, cozy up next to a fire with friends, a bottle of La Crema Pinot Noir, and exquisite outdoor accessories by Brown Jordan. Lumen lanterns will add a soft, warm glow and you can sip and watch the flames around the Flo combination fireplace-cocktail table.
