Contemporary Outdoor Furniture

When planning our home décor it can sometimes be easy to forget the outside of your home, a significant omission especially if your outdoor furniture is the first collection your visitors see. Ferrious stock a generous range of contemporary outdoor furniture, lighting and other accessories, helping you to add that elegant modern touch to your home and grounds. Some of our outdoor pieces form parts of collections that include indoor furniture, helping you create a classy consistent look. Contemporary outdoor furniture design maintains the modern penchant for light, airy construction but adds extra durability with features such as waterproofing and UV-protection. Outdoor items also need to be easy to clean and maintain, which ties in perfectly with the trend for simple lines and minimal fussy detail.

Outdoor Seating
The Ferrious outdoor seating range includes benches and chairs constructed in a range of traditional or modern materials, from wood to metal, moulded plastic and 100% recyclable materials. Benches include designs by Alvar Aalto of long-standing Finnish manufacturers Artek, in their signature birch. Artek took inspiration from the Bauhaus desire to establish technology as the driving force behind modern design.  Tom Dixon, who until 2009 was Artek’s head designer, also features in our outdoor seating collection, with benches and stools in his trademark ‘fluoro’ orange. If you prefer the ‘objective perfectionism’ style, then you might want to take a look at Florence Knoll’s ‘Knoll 2’ seat bench. Outdoor seating items often come with a choice of seat pads, colours and finishes.

Illuminating Design Solutions
Lighting forms an essential part of the design of any outdoor space, and should not be left to chance. Whether you prefer gently illuminating stones or tall, elegant lamps, Ferrious offer plenty of lighting solutions for your garden or patio, with designs predominately from the Marset and Foscarini brands. Lights of varying brightness and strength, placed in different arrangements, can create fascinating effects and experimentation is the key.

A Touch of Novelty
For those who like to go against the grain and try something truly unique, Ferrious can introduce you to some of our more unusual designs. Instead of a bench or seat, you could consider accommodating your guests on Maya Lin’s sand-filled, coloured stones from Knoll. Or there is the eye-catching Moooi gothic chair, complete with faux upholstery buttons, originally designed for the Groningen museum in the Netherlands.  Rather than lighting your garden with a lamp or glowing stones, Foscarini offers you a selection of  glowing ‘blobs’, courtesy of designer Karim Rashid.

Choices
21st Century contemporary outdoor furniture often comes with a surprising degree of customisation. For example, some Ferrious products offer more than ten different types of upholstery. There is usually a generous choice of sizes, colours and finishes available to create a versatile aesthetic suitable to different outdoor themes and colour schemes. Some variations can be delivered faster than usual, so be sure to check the product descriptions for full details. It is also worth having a browse through our extensive accessories section, to find that perfect finishing touch to your vision. We offer everything from quality ceramic bowls and vases to elegant coat stands and candleholders.  After all, modern home décor is all about adding that final signature flourish that expresses your individuality.
