THE DOORWAY TO OUTDOOR LIVING

Don’t think of the outdoors as a separate part of your home. Rather, blend it further with the indoors by minimizing the visual and physical barriers between the two. Many homeowners are replacing their aluminium sliding glass doors with folding glass doors. These doors open all the way to maximize the sense of openness.

THINK OF IT AS AN EXTENSION OF YOUR INTERIOR

Achieving a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor space is now possible with fully upholstered outdoor furniture. The idea of having indoor style outside can now be your reality - whether you choose to create an outdoor dining area, living room or outdoor bar.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT FURNITURE

Bringing a softer aesthetic to the outdoor space is a key look in 2018. The new Veneto lounge set with a contemporary deep button effect is a prime example of the indoor-outdoors trend, as is the Amalfi fully upholstered sun lounger which is a first for the South African market.

Both these collections are fully upholstered in quality outdoor fabric that can be left outdoors all year round in sun and even rain. What’s more, they offer contemporary designs inspired by the latest trends and above all the ultimate comfort and easy-living that you deserve.

The finishing touch

Use of soft furnishings such as rugs, scatter cushions and throws are a great way to blend the indoor and outdoor space. They are especially handy to liven up the space if you choose neutral coloured furniture.
