It’s always a joy when your house or apartment comes with a balcony, and no matter how tiny or vast it is, there is so much design potential and a plethora of beautiful outdoor furniture available to fill your space. Depending on what your aesthetic is and whether it comes off a bedroom or living area, it can be an outdoor oasis, morning coffee spot, or the ultimate entertaining space.
Whether you have a tiny apartment balcony or a generously sized outdoor patio, to make the most of the space you should focus on creating a seamless blend between the indoors and out, and create an intimate space that is equally as beautiful as your home’s interior.
Celebrating the Sectional
As extensions of your home, balconies make for fabulous warm-weather spots for gathering and relaxing with friends and family, while also serving as private oases for you to quietly relax and reset after a busy day. Choosing sectional furniture for your balcony gives you the option of fitting individual pieces together like a puzzle, and the layout of your outdoor balcony furniture should be a functional reflection of your sense of style.
A long, straight seating arrangement is perfect for lining a substantial balcony, ensuring it is a welcoming and whimsical space that remains highly functional for lounging and entertaining. If your balcony is spacious, why not go big? Don’t be afraid to bring in sizeable pieces from cozy chaises for lounging in the hot sun, to hefty tables for long alfresco gatherings. Lay your furniture in conversation sets, L-shaped configurations, or straight down a wall – the possibilities are endless.
We love the versatility of the Coast Teak Outdoor Deep Seating Collection (pictured above), which allows you to make it as grand or small as your outdoor space will allow. The wide cushions and seat depth are sublimely comfortable and perfect for lounging on your pool deck. The Coast Teak Collection features the Coast Sectional Center, Coast Corner, Left, and Right Daybeds, Coast Outdoor Lounge Chair, Outdoor Ottoman, and teak coffee tables. To create a great lounging space, place a Kingston Cantilever Umbrella next to the arm of your Daybed and two teak Club Chairs, and voila! A dynamic, welcoming space for you to host friends, or just enjoy the serenity of your own private retreat.
The essential Café Table
All you need to enjoy your morning coffee or evening pinot gris on your balcony is a café table and a chair or two. To allow the space to be further opened up when not in use, choose a space-saving table that folds up easily so you can store it inside if necessary. As if taken straight out of a Parisian Café, our Café Round Teak Folding Table (right) has a beautiful Grade A Teak top with powder-coated steel legs, making for a romantic, whimsical look whilst still being a practical piece that folds away for easy storage. The Café Round Teak Folding Table looks great with the Café Teak Folding Arm or Side Chairs, but can also be teamed up with basic teak chairs, or even a little concrete stool.
If you’re keen on purely using wood on your balcony for an enhanced organic feel, our Round Teak Folding Dining Table is the perfect option for you. A classic example of the traditional teak folding table, these round teak folding tables are made in Grade-A teak and will last you a lifetime. Gradually aging to a soft, silvery hue, this table is ideal for outdoor dining, conveniently folding away for compact storage.
Sit back and relax
Essential to a blissful balcony setting is a stylish relaxing chair, where you can curl up with a book and while the days away. Pure teak quality and incredibly comfortable, the Westminster Outdoor Club Chair (left) adds an element of style and stability to any alfresco space. As if pulled straight from an English manor’s grounds, the entire Westminster teak collection will sit effortlessly in a plush patio or coastal setting, or bring a regency feeling to your contemporary roof deck. Purpose-built for relaxing, the collection features a sturdy, thick frame offset and complemented by a light curve in the arm, and comes with the comfiest Neptune™ cushions. The outdoor Club Chair is bold but versatile, whether positioned by itself for a little retreat from your busy world, or as part of a bigger seating set.
The Tessa Rope Relaxing Chair is an alternative option that brings an elementally feminine design and a gently cultivated neutral color palette that you can’t help but love. Made from powder-coated aluminum, UV-treated rope, and Neptune™ fabric with grand dimensions, this relaxing chair has a similar vibe to wicker furniture but is built to last. Tie the scene together by adding an earthy coffee table like the River Organic Teak Coffee Table or continue with the contemporary motif with the Blok Concrete Rectangular Coffee Table in Black.
