Things get cushy on the patio with rounded shapes, softer textures and pliable forms.
The flat and dome-shaped sunshades in the Bistrò collection (from $18,340) by Paola Lenti bring shelter and, with the customizable add-ons of a pouf or table, softness to your outdoor space. livingspace.com
Santa and Cole’s Cestita Batería ($750) is a portable, cordless version of the classic 1962 lamp designed by Miguel Milá. The lantern brings light—and perhaps the dance of shadow puppets—to soften any corner of the backyard. informinteriors.com
The weather-resistant knit of the Gios chair ($499) and ottoman ($399) wraps around a square-yet-supple silhouette to create a relaxed perch for late-afternoon cocktails or after-dark stargazing. article.com
Take the concept of forest bathing literally: a bath outside in Native Trails’ curvy Avalon concrete tub ($10,548), made from a combo of natural jute fibre and cement in earthy tones. cantubathrooms.com
The round, airy base of the Mesh table series (from $1,298), designed by Patricia Urquiola for Kettal, lets light filter through to create pretty patterns. The tables come in hues like lilac and feldspar to provide a pastel pop on the patio. informinteriors.com
