Dreaming of Summer

Summer is just around the corner – or is this wishful thinking on my part? At this time of year my thoughts turn to thinking of summer and imagining the warmth and taking time to relax outside. So my attention was rightfully piqued when I saw these beautiful pieces of furniture. I always look for a theme when I am captivated by images, and these pieces have canopies over them, thereby eliminating the need for an umbrella. I like the fact in design that ‘form follows function’ and especially when function can be made inherently beautiful.  In other words these loungers are self-contained and functionally-integrated escapes from the sun.

I can just imagine sitting in the warmth in these beautifully designed and functionally-integrated pieces of furniture.
What about you? Are you dreaming about summer?

  5. Patricia, I am dreaming of summer even during summer, if that makes sense. I detest winter, maybe I should move to where Renee lives :)
    Dedon makes the most beautiful outdoor furniture whenever it is needed and the budget allows I use their pieces.

  6. Those daydreams-daybeds are so inviting and romantic, of course the scenery helps dreaming even to spend a night under the stars with the sweet sounds of the sea.

  11. Since I live in Brasil and we have a very long and hot summer, I can't wait for Winter.
    But these Dedon chairs and lounges are fantastic.

    Well i have been Dreaming of summer for a while now .... that might be because i live in Manchester England and summer here isnt really like America :( However my in laws have a place in Palm Springs Indian Wells and its beautiful ! This furniture would be perfect in our garden ... i have not even got any garden furniture in England it just rusts or moulds ! My idea for this summer is to buy some of the massive out door bean bags and a low table to give it the Moroccan theme with lanters and an out door heater!So when it does rain i can take them in and wipe them down! Maybe i should just move to the US. Then i would not have this problem ....... one day :)

  18. I imagine myself sitting under one of those canopies all curled up reading a book and listening to the sound of the ocean! Is that to much to ask? Thanks for the inspiration!
