The Great Outdoors

>> Wednesday, June 30, 2010

This week I am playing super catch up with my current projects, while also gearing up for a camping trip this weekend in the Adirondacks. So I am going to be a little bit of a lazy blogger and just share with you exactly what I am working on right now.

This morning my client and I have been going through several outdoor seating options for her terrace. She lives on the 11th and 12th floors of a really great mid rise in Tribeca, so we are working hard to make this space a very natural extension of her interior spaces. Here are some current options...

This last one is our current fave, using this canopy bed. We have already purchased a bar set for the middle. Which seating option would you pick?

I love the canopy! How relaxing! While the kiddos were napping, I would take out my diet vanilla coke and USWeekly...and ahhhhh! Perfect!

I was about to say either the first or fifth...but then I scrolled to the last one and SOLD. Glad to see that's your favorite too! Love seeing what you're working on! Oh and btw, do you know the name of a furniture maker/workshop in NYC that you like? We may need one out there.

I like the last two the best -- and the last one is my favorite!

Most definetly the canopy bed!!

I really like the last two, but I think I like the umbrella better than the canopy. I'd feel too 'boxed in' with the canopy, I think.

I would choose something like the fourth one, but with a little fire pit thing, like this one from blomus:
We had it on our wedding registry, but didn't get it. I guess living in the desert, that is a little extravagent, but I love fireplaces!

I like the canopy bed (and think slipcovered pillows and cushions would look fantastic) but love the flexibility of the umbrella.

Thanks to you and your client for letting us opine! Great options!

omg, where did you ever think of the canopy?!? That is like the best idea ever!!

I'm with you on the canopy. It would fit into the space so neatly and it's always good to have some shade. I would SO love a balcony like that!

I definitely like the fifth option the best. I'm more of a lounger than canopy bed person though for outdoor spaces.

I love the last two! So fun! I hope you had a great vaca and a fabulous time in the Adirondacks. Let's get together soon!

I love them! Especially the last two!

I have to agree the last is my fave.
