Lovely Outdoor Furnishings To Inspire The Spring Season Ahead


Verdant Vista

Between McKinnon and Harris co-founder Will Massie’s memorable family trips to Italy and his longstanding appreciation for the country’s art and craftsmanship, it’s no surprise that the brand’s latest Thirza Collection is a love letter to the Mediterranean destination. Take the Thirza Dining Chairs, where every detail tells a story: The sphere finials nod to the Medici orbs seen throughout Florence, and the frame and apron reference ancient Etruscan bronze thrones and chariots. The customizable knife edge cushions—shown in Artemis Green and Swan White—are midcentury in spirit. mckinnonharris.com

Veranda Season

For 25 years, designer Bunny Williams’ former New York City storefront, Treillage, was a haven for green thumbs. She recently delighted the interiors world with a collection in honor of the beloved brick-and-mortar for Bunny Williams Home. Among the offerings is the rattan Mirabel Side Table, which boasts a star-like inlaid rattan top, sinuous legs and a handsome cross-base design. Perfectly sized for a lamp or beverages, it’s a versatile workhorse for any covered porch. bunnywilliamshome.com

Jardin Delight

The inspiration behind Sunset West’s Provence Bench can be found in its namesake. Paying homage to the French countryside aesthetic that has long influenced contemporary furniture companies, this perch is an artful study in form and function. At a roomy 6 feet wide, the powder-coated wrought-iron basketweave frame features a hand-applied silver pewter finish. The upholstery is customizable and shown here in Sunbrella’s Fretwork Mist. sunsetwestusa.com, salvatoreoutdoor.com

Watering Duty

Mundane gardening chores will soon become more pleasurable with the Incredible Trellis Watering Can. The painted tole accessory begs to be left on display as ornamentation where its cheerful print can be enjoyed. Hailing from the trad-happy online destination, The Well Appointed House—a go-to for preppy décor treasures founded by Connecticut-based Melissa Hawks in 2001—the watering can is also available in a chinoiserie pattern. wellappointedhouse.com

In Bloom

Atlanta-based Mainly Baskets Home has long been known for its handcrafted wicker and rattan product offerings. Now, the brand is expanding its penchant for woven furniture and accessories with the launch of an outdoor collection featuring their best sellers, including this Scallop Console. Crafted from a resin-based rattan, the piece is ideal for year-round outdoor living. Inspired by an antique form, the petaled skirt gives way to a flat back making it suitable to stand flush against a wall or sofa. mainlybaskets.com

Greenhouse Glow

Behold the Clara Lanterns by hospitality designer Chiara Caberlon, in collaboration with product designer Marco Forbicioni, for Italian lighting company Contardi. With a bronze lacquered frame and Vienna straw resin-like caning, these modern pieces offer the practicality and portability of outdoor-friendly lights without sacrificing the elegant ethos of pieces consigned to the indoors. Available in three sizes (medium and small, shown) and a white lacquered finish, the lanterns feature a rechargeable battery that lasts up to eight hours. contardi-usa.com
