indoor-outdoor living

Embrace the trend for indoor-outdoor living by creating attractive garden spaces that
are in perfect harmony with your interiors. You need less than you think to achieve this – simply start with the right flooring, seating and accessories.

Outdoor Surfaces

There are multiple outdoor flooring options from which to choose depending on your wants and needs. Non-slip tiles are ideal for areas likely to get wet, while cement-based variations like screed boast extra longevity. If you want to give your space a warm, homey feel, outdoor carpets are versatile and provide cushioning for children playing on the floor.

Outdoor Lounges

Gone are the days of plastic patio furniture and lumpy box-seat cushions that fade in the sun. The latest outdoor furniture is as beautiful as it is durable, with a plethora of statement offerings that can be used both inside and out. Establish a relaxing space by arranging your seating around a central focal point – such as a coffee or dining table, firepit, carpet or swimming pool.

Give your veranda a personal, lived-in feel with tactile additions that merge seamlessly with their surrounds. From woven organic lampshades and baskets to bold wax prints, earthy stoneware and classic wooden furniture, this is modern alfresco styling at its best.
