Looking Ahead to the Backyard

I’ve been paying attention to outdoor seating areas, looking for ideas and thinking about what we’re going to do with the porches and small patio at our new house. My little orbit chairs are still going strong (thanks, plastic!), and of course the egg chair is coming with. I don’t think that the table we bought last year will fit though, and I don’t want us to move it, store it, and move it again, only to end up selling it in a few months. I’m fairly certain the table needs a new home, and I’m trying to decide if we want to sell any or all of the chairs at the same time. I still have all of this extra seating in the garage too, and it’s probably time to let some of it go.

Anyway, I noticed a ton of inspiring ideas in this home tour, but I was particularly drawn to the following two outdoor lounge areas.

So good, right? I recognized the white chairs immediately, but quickly realized that I could source the other chairs too — it’s all IKEA. (Just like the majority of our outdoor furniture.)

Here’s another great use of that white chair. I spot the same Ammerö benches we have too, with a blanket over top.

So good! I’m looking forward to putting our stuff together in new ways.
