52 Outstanding Outdoor Furnishings

From varnished aluminum loungers and stainless steel ice machines to powder-coated steel letterboxes, these newly introduced outdoor furnishings can spruce up any exterior space. Modeled on Japanese bamboo blinds but made with painted steel and wooden slats, Oki Sato’s fully adjustable Sudare table and chair by Nendo for Patio Petite fold flat when not in use. Molded foam coated in polyurethane renders Jorge Herrera Studio‘s Easy collection’s tables, daybeds, and armchair ideal for alfresco use—the functional collection is available through Stratta. GlammFire‘s Stravaganza, a red-haute fire pit, is tailor-made for alfresco entertaining. Folded planes of rusted Cor-Ten enfold a lacquered carbon-steel body with stainless-steel fuel compartment. An ancillary spark screen keeps flames under control while you’re toasting marshmallows and telling ghost tales. All products have also been featured in Interior Design ‘s recent Spring Market Tabloid.
