Old World porter chairs, known for their high canopied backs and sides, are given a dramatic update with fresh, bright colors, like this trio of Namib porter chairs by Brabbu in deep orange, raspberry and wine.
This chic porter's chair has a domed egg-like shaped back with pink patterned fabric and acts as a focal point in the room against lavender walls and a black floor. The small black bookcase, purple and lavender pull-up curtain and lavender rug create a cohesive background for the unique chair.
Ample seating is available in this living room, thanks to a built-in window seat and a light, portable butterfly chair that can be pulled out to the deck when needed, as seen on HGTV's Cousins Undercover.
The living room flows easily into this dining area, both with the gorgeous backdrop of a Porter Teleo wallpaper accent wall. The simple arrangement and neutral palette of the dining table and chairs allows for the patterns in the living room to shine.
Pegboard is a super-versatile storage solution that’s ideal for a garage. Here, we mounted pegboard above a simple table and chair to create a budget-friendly yet functional workspace, and used some scrap pieces to create a portable craft supply caddy.
Sometimes the best spot for your outdoor retreat is a sun-splashed area. If you’ll be enjoying your retreat during the day, even if it’s only on weekends, it’s worth investing in some kind of shade. A simple patio umbrella can cast enough shade for a table and chairs, or consider adding an awning to your home to shade a greater area. Other options for creating a cooling pool of shade include a permanent structure, like a pergola (add vines for color) or gazebo. For a portable shade option, check out pop-up canopy designs. You can also use a temporary canopy to help you determine where you might want to add a more permanent structure in future.
