6 Colorful Outdoor Furniture Pieces That Are Total Mood-Boosters


These colorful outdoor furniture pieces—taken for a spin through Miami’s Wynwood District—turn up the volume on living en plein air.


London-based design brand Shore, known for producing rugs and mats in a kaleidoscope of hues, is expanding its range of indoor-outdoor furnishings. The Chroma Stool, seen here in Lemon Grass and Tropic Sunset, is woven from silicone cord and available in seven vibrant gradients. Though this tactile perch may be far from home, it holds its own next to an eye-catching mural by Emmy Star Brown.


Bauhaus-trained American architect and furniture designer Michael van Beuren may have crafted the original San Miguel Lounge Chair in 1941, but its cradling curves, sleek lines and Latin American roots continue to attract designers and collectors today. Available in a variety of wood and strapping combinations through Luteca, and currently on display at Miami’s Museum of Art and Design, this iroko wood and webbed nylon version turns up the heat alongside a dynamic mural by Rafael de Cárdenas gracing the Wynwood Building.


Douse your outdoor oasis with eye-popping color by way of glossy cast-resin planters and stools, available in six electric hues from home furnishings emporium Made Goods. The organic form of the oversized Abria planter, shown in Marigold, is inspired by ocean waves, while the versatile Murni stools, in Watermelon, exude mod tropical vibes when set against a Danielle Hein–designed mural.


Ralph Pucci International’s Positano chair, showcased in front of London-based artist Will Gates’ street art, is the creation of French designer, artist and architect Patrick Naggar. The creative multi-hyphenate first joined the illustrious studio in 1995 as its inaugural furniture artist-in-residence, where he continues to produce imaginative furnishings across mediums. Naggar draws inspiration from Roman and Greek antiquities, as is evidenced by the sled legs on his resin-fiberglass chair design. The piece is first sketched, then formed from clay and cast from a mold before being finished by hand.


Inspired by barbeque grills, Spanish design duo Alberto Sánchez and Eduardo Villalón of Mut Design went back to the basics when developing the aptly named Grill chairs for Diabla, a Spanish outdoor furniture brand founded in 2018. The stackable, aluminum powder-coated frame makes for perfect patio seating and comes in seven distinct shades, including this cheeky pink version that harmonizes with a lush and verdant scene painted by multimedia artist Jacquie Comrie.
