Summer has officially arrived! Whether you enjoy soaking up warm rays of sunshine by the pool or prefer lounging on your modern furniture with the AC blasting, we think there is so much to love about this season. For that very reason we've put together our top ten 'Digs of the Summer' to help you find just what you need to get your home ready for the dog days ahead!
We'll start with modern furniture picks for the outdoors since it's summer after all. This time of year begs for outdoor activities like swimming, grilling and fun in the sun, so we've chosen some pieces to help you make your backyard, patio or terrace the place to be.
- Our Amsterdam Outdoor Ping Pong Table is the quintessential summertime staple for any outdoor space. Just think of all of the fun you'll have with family and friends while battling it out over a competitive (but friendly) game of table tennis. Made from a state of the art blend of concrete and fiberglass, the Amsterdam's resistant surface is perfect for the outdoors and the powdercoated steel legs provide ample support and style. After you've worked up an apetite chasing the ping pong ball around, simply remove the net and pull up a seat to enjoy the Amsterdam's dining surface and a yummy alfresco meal
- Perfectly paired, the Amsterdam Outdoor Bench is the ideal match for the table of the same name. A modern take on the classic picnic table design, this bench will accomodate up to three to give you plenty of seating for an intimate backyard gathering. The Amsterdam series comes in gray or white sand to fit into your outdoor oasis seamlessly. Also pictured is the Barclay Dining Chair if you would like to mix and match your seating options.
- We think our Lou Outdoor Rug will provide the ideal surface for any outdoor furniture pieces. Lou is machine woven of 100% polypropylene and is outdoor safe, so it will stand up to the elements and your ping pong playing too. The taupe background gives this rug a neutral base and lets the bold dark blue pattern stand out, especially since it is slightly raised, giving it some added texture. Since Lou is available in multiple sizes, you can choose the one that is best suited to your space, but we suggest the 7'10" x 10'3" size to place underneath the Amsterdam Outdoor Ping Pong Table and bench.
Let's head indoors, since we like air conditioning here in Texas with all of the heat, humidity and mosquitos that abound. We've put these particular pieces together for a living space, but every item is versatile so that it can easily work into other rooms of your home as well.
- Our Unfurl Sofa comes in one of the hottest home decor colors of the season, mustard. It's a statement piece that is filled with possibilities. A sofa by day, the Unfurl easily folds down into a spacious sleeping surface by night. And the stained wood legs and black contrast piping make the Unfurl a piece of substance and style. Plus, Innovation's quality is unmatched, so you'll be able to enjoy the Unfurl for years to come. If mustard isn't your color, you can choose an alternate color, or even one of our other modern sleeper sofas.
- Another cool trend for summer is acrylic furniture and so we've selected our Anime Arm Chair because it is a fun accent for any space. With a traditional silhouette and unique clear design, the Anime makes a statement, while also blending in with any decor style and aesthetic. Even better, the chair is so durable that it can actually go indoors our out so it is perfect for summer gatherings that migrate from one space to another. The Anime Arm Chair also come is white if that's more to your liking.
- A jack of all trades, our Jude Jute Poof is a versatile piece that you can add to almost any room. Place it in your living room to be used as an ottoman or add a tray to the top and it doubles as a coffee or side table. Jude is made of 100% jute and filled with polybeads so that it offers just enough give to be comfy, yet supportive. Add one to your space to give your room some texture and a natural element.
- The Tivat 2 Floor Lamp is one of our best sellers and it's not hard to see why. A minimalist design and dual head design make the Tivat 2 an easy choice, especially since you can choose between a white or black powdercoated finish. Angle the lamps to illuminate your favorite book or crossword puzzle, or simply add a little ambiance with just the right amount of light. However you use the Tivat 2, we're certain you won't be left in the dark!
Moving on to the bedroom, we've got some good thing in store:
- One look at our Haru Bed and you're sure to have sweet dreams. There's just something about Haru's comforting wrap-around headboard, upholstered in a soft gray Andorra wool that just makes you want to curl up in a mountain of plush bedding. The solid wood base with rounded corners comes in three different stains, black oak, walnut and natural (shown above) so you can choose the one that speaks to you. We're pretty sure it will say "Sleep here!" which is why it's our favorite modern platform bed!
- We love when form and function come together effortlessly, like they do with the Liliana Nightstand. As far as looks go, Liliana is a ten, with a soft pink lacquered finish and chic gold accents. But, with two large drawers to store your bedside essentials, you'll find Liliana has so much more to offer. This allows you to stow away the clutter and display pretty things of your choosing - hooray!
- A good piece of art can really make a room, so we've selected Spring Morning to add a burst of color to your morning routine! Vivid colors of red, orange, blue and pink make this simple, yet stunning piece pop. It's the perfect addition for summer and we think you'll love all of the brightness it will bring to your life.
Well there you go: our top ten 'Digs of the Summer' to help you kick off the season in style!
