Dive into Jackie's top five pieces to make your outdoor space warm and inviting.
1. HAY Palissade Collection: Palissade is a collection of outdoor furniture designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The collection comprises 13 different elements, united not only by their graphical image but also by their common characteristics: they are strong without being bulky, elegant without being fragile.
2. loll DESIGNS Fresh Air Bar Stool: Fresh air, healthy food and good friends; it all comes together in our Fresh Air Collection. We offer this modern outdoor collection in a number of sizes to perfectly suit any appetite. The Fresh Air Bar Stool offers a slender silhouette and a take-a-load-off back rest. Pair it with the Fresh Air Bar Table 26" and you'll slide nicely into your own happy hour.
3. Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group: Eames Aluminum Group was originally designed in 1957 as outdoor seating for the Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard-designed home of industrialist J. Irwin Miller. This chair returns to those roots with weather-resistant finishes and a durable outdoor weave.
4. DESIGN WITHIN REACH Sam Son Chair: A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Konstantin Grcic creates furniture that reflects his logical thought process, honest use of materials and respect for production methods. To him, design involves more than having fun. "It’s hard work, serious work," he says. "You have to think not only about the object you’re designing, but everything else about it, from how it will be produced to who will be using it, to what happens to it after it goes through its life cycle. But the playful Sam Son Chair (2015), with its slightly exaggerated character, shows that Grcic still has a sense of fun. This easygoing armchair is distinguished by an oversized horseshoe-shaped upper element, which serves as a supportive armrest and backrest. Suitable for use both indoors and out. Made in Italy.
5. HAY 13Eighty: Created by Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings, HAY's 13Eighty chair draws its name from the number of tiny holes in its molded polypropylene shell. These variously-sized perforations give 13Eighty a certain transparency, creating a play of light and shadow that brings a sense of movement to the visual appearance. This stackable chair is used indoors and out.
