Urban settings deliver an intoxicating amount of sensorial experiences, creating an alluring metropolis life that’s rich and layered. Culture, art, food, and a diverse set of people – distinguishing features of any city – collectively make a palpable effect on what it means to reside there. Yet, one would be remiss not to mention that having an element of balance is ideal. The overarching appeal of a vibrant city life for urban dwellers can present another side, the importance of seeking out some reprieve, at times away from the city, to a place within a coveted personal space. Transporting oneself through one’s surroundings into one that’s driven by a necessity for nature and a desire for reimagined classic styles elevates the ordinary. In this post, we explore contemporary furniture styles that compliment an urban rooftop garden or balcony among the vast landscape of modern city life.
Definition and angular gestures set the tone for an appropriately decadent urban exterior. Architectural influences seen throughout the landscape are reflective in modern outdoor furniture. The Granada Collection in White is made from powder-coated aluminum and sleek gray Neptune™ cushions to create a powerful presence that fits seamlessly into a residential setting for an urban exterior balcony. To complement the aluminum deep seating collection’s sophisticated tones and sharp angles, potted palms like the Ruffled Fan Palm or the Chinese Fan Palm offers structure and precision reflective of the deep seating collection and environmental aesthetic. Square shaped planters offer a progressive style similar to the Blok Square Tapered Planter or the Raw Square Concrete Planters. Layered vibrant greenery against industrial fashion reveals a relaxing paradise for its inhabitants.
Intricate woven details offer a softer side to contemporary exterior design. The Usso Collection in Coal understands understated features that still command attention. This rope deep seating collection features modern woven relaxing chairs and a sofa aimed at changing the perception of contemporary style. A sprawling balcony with unrivaled views deserves artful furnishings and accents that enrich your personal surroundings. Perennials like Marigolds and Primroses in a monochromatic color palette creates an iconic juxtaposition between fixtures and nature, while playful shapes and sizes add a rhythmic cadence for onlookers. The Raw Rectangular Concrete Planters mingled among the Clove Outdoor Concrete Planters to provide a subtle presence and a pleasing play on heights.
Taking a naturalistic approach to a contemporary style concept adheres to three main principles; elemental, simple, and primitive. Drawing decor inspiration from nature works to bring in a layer of a more restrained type of contemporary style. The Ventura Collection made from rope and reclaimed teak embodies modern elements in the design, and the contrasting dark-toned Neptune™ cushions provide a dramatic gesture throughout. This teak outdoor sectional sofa is best suited when arranged with plants that reflect its organic and rustic nature. The Brooklyn Concrete Round Planters will elevate a selection of fragrant herbs to accompany the set while cooking flavorful meals conveniently. Add in several Fiddle Fig Trees in the Origami Outdoor Planters in Black to tie in with the bold cushion colors. A delightful mix of oversized sofas and natural elements transforms your space into pure comfort and warmth.
With all the excitement that the city can provide, it feels good to return to your own space and view the city at a distance.
