September 2017: As the southern hemisphere has seen the first phase of spring, it signals the start of not just a seasonal change but also the start of the outdoor entertainment season.
We all have our preferred entertainment set up – where family and friends gather for a braai, snacks around the pool or sundowners on the patio. With the sunny and warmer weather almost upon us, how do we ensure our outdoor space remains on-trend and contemporary yet simple? And what’s the best way to ensure your outdoor space is ready for summer?
Alon Sachs, co-founder of Mobelli Furniture + Living says creating the ultimate outdoor space is easy with the right furniture – there are key pieces for any outdoor space. Everyone acknowledges that sun protection is crucial and if your outdoor area is not undercover, an umbrella is definitely a must-have. And water resistant seating will also be quite handy when guests hop straight out of the pool.
“Know your space – that’s key. Feature a piece that makes a statement. If it’s a large piece crammed into a small space that’s a big no-no, find what works for you and your home,” says Sachs, who also recommends the following hassle-free options:
Extend and expand:
Define your patio with an extendable table with an innovative hidden extension piece that gives you the flexibility to add a few extra seats to your table should a few impromptu guests join for dinner.
Comfy and cosy:
Consider smaller pieces of furniture for that cosy look and feel and they have many advantages too – they move around with ease and make the space seem bigger than its actual size.
Drinks on wheels:
Your very own mini bar, tucked in a corner with all the X.Y.Z. And if the party moves from the patio to the pool, the drinks trolley can easily follow.
Transform your entertainment space with wireless LED lights for a soothing, subtle atmosphere during dinner or a late-night round of drinks. And since adopting an eco-friendly approach is necessary to reduce our carbon footprint, solar lighting is the recommended choice.
