5 Must-Have Elements for The Perfect Outdoor Space

For many of us, the pollen is finally clearing, and it’s time to get that outdoor space spiffed up so that we can spend the maximum amount of time outdoors. What makes a great outdoor space? Here are my personal top five:



Even the tiniest of spaces needs plants to enliven it. Surely there is room even on the smallest of balconies for at least a potted plant or two. Consider a trellis, hanging pots or boxes that hang over the railings if you’re short on floor space.


Modernica’s mid-century modern pots with stands are one of the chicest modern ways to add life to your outdoor space.

Sometimes, the moon is not enough (or it’s a sliver). Enhance your lighting scheme however you can — tiki torches, lanterns, even inexpensive outdoor holiday lights can be just the right way to set the mood.


I’m also crazy about these pots from Offi, because they double as mood lighting. A compact fluorescent bulb is all it takes for them to light up your outdoor space with magical ambiance. Shop more outdoor lighting options —we’ve got everything from perforated candleholders to outdoor lamps with indoor style.

Yes, lots of people have fancy fire pits and full chimneys start at about tens thousand dollars. But it is easy to bring in a small fire pit that will keep you more than toasty on a cool night and toast a smorgasbord of s’mores to perfection.



Loll’s Fire Ring Set comes with an array of different colored tops so that it can serve double-duty as a coffee table when it’s not smoldering. But I like charcoal gray because it’s modern and it goes well with fire.


You cannot very well host that al fresco dinner party you’ve been thinking about without a proper table and chairs. Whether you buy new or set up some sawhorses, an old door for a tabletop and a mix of chairs from indoors, start envisioning your outdoor tablescape.

While I’d like to think it’s my scintillating personality that keeps my friends coming back to my screened-in porch for wine night, I know it’s really the cushy sofa where everyone can get comfy on big pillows and put their feet up.

The Blu Dot Jibe Collection is my favorite new outdoor line. It has all the comfort of indoor furniture without getting overwhelmed by overstuffed cushions.

Magis Is On Sale!

Hey All! Now through June 10, save 15% on all pieces from Magis! This is great news for those of you who are looking to add some bright color to your screened-in porch like I am (or your deck, or your patio, or your dining room or desk…) I choose these amazing Folding Air Armchairs in grasshopper green myself:

The Magis Chair One with 4 Star Base adds some mad geometry to any space. I think it would be extra cool in a Buckminster Filler-designed geodesic dome, but how many of us have those? I’ll put it in my funky cottage, thank you very much.

By the way, this chair also comes with concrete base and four legged base style options.

I don’t have a pool, but I’d pretend I did and just lounge in this beauty underneath the sprinkler. The Magis Paso Doble Chaise Lounge‘s  sexy curves would distract me from my sad, pool-less situation.

Need a spot to rest that pitcher of refreshing mojitos? Look no further, the Magis One Bistro Table is here, just waiting for you to order it up and perch your cocktails atop it.

Moving indoors, Magis Steelwood Shelving Systems have a gorgeous contemporary look that will hold everything without clunking up a room. Use it for media, office tomes and binders, books, kitchen stuff. It’s also great for people who like to keep things folded and stacked in the closet.

So peeps, get on it, because this sale is only through June 10, 2013.

Hey All!

Just wanted to let you know we have some great sales going on right now. If you’ve been coveting an iconic piece from Kartell, now is the time to hop on it! Prices have been slashed 20%, today through March 25, 2013.  You may not even realize how many iconic pieces Kartell offers; check them all out here.

Kartell FL/Y Suspension Lamps

Here are a few that have been on my wish list for quite some time; I think if I had to choose just one today, it would be the Kartell Masters Chair as it is so clever, and because The Master just arrived from Netflix, so I’m taking it as a sign. The Masters Chair combines the silhouettes of three iconic mid-century modern chairs, Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 Chair, the Eames Shell Chair and Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Chair. It’s the one in the top left corner below:
