This tropical outdoor seating area features a built-in bench, a rough hewn coffee table and cozy armchairs with matching footrests. The covered patio creates the perfect spot for casual conversation with family and friends.
If your outdoor space has integrated bench seating, maximize its use with a collection of bistro tables and mismatched seating surrounding it. The same versatile elements used throughout the area were incorporated here to tie the spaces together visually.
Modular-style furnishings are made more traditional when crafted of wicker-like material. The gorgeous sea-blue furniture cushions and matching stemware is a delightful touch, while the ottoman serves double duty as a table with the addition of the simple silver tray.
A large pergola filters light over two outdoor banquettes, while the main patio offers additional seating. A sprinkling of stone pavers creates visual interest in the Mediterranean-insired backyard backyard.
Tree stumps serve as woodsy and rustic side tables, the perfect size for cocktails. Draw inspiration from this outdoor seating area by Chicago interior designer Tom Stringer, who injects a classic, multi-layered modern approach into his work.
