One of summer’s greatest joys is being able to host outdoors, whether that be a simple breakfast in the morning sun or an elaborate, champagne dinner under the stars. But crafting the right environs with which to host such events is easier said than done, and ensuring the relationship between form and function remains a balanced one is often a tricky task to nail. But where so many other brands fail, luxury outdoor brand DEDON flourishes.
Masters of toeing the line between practicality and poise, DEDON is the brand that should be on every discerning design enthusiast’s mind come summertime. Take the Mbrace wing chair, for example. It combines a sleek timber base with a cushion-adorned, woven circular seat to provide the perfect place to curl up. The sofa’s, from the refined and modernistic Tibbo sofa, to the Brea — a sophisticated connecting system with robust steel frames and plush cushioning — and the light and fresh Mu sofa, which boasts an intricately woven base, surpass the comfort and design of their indoor contemporaries. The real jewel in the crown, however, is the NestRest. The epitome of otherworldly comfort, it sees special fibre weaving crafted into a teardrop reminiscent shape, one that is then hollowed out and laden with plump cushions.
Even the dining furnishings, while often hard to translate to the outdoors, make a distinct style statement while remaining inherently welcoming. The Mbrace dining table follows a sleek motif, with a structure fashioned entirely from smooth timber. Characterful chairs to place around such a table are in abundance, like the Aiir armchair, which places a curved seat atop the same, classic timber structuring, or — for a more relaxed aesthetic — the Seax armchair, which possesses a simple but sophisticated ethos.
Whether it’s crafting the perfect surroundings for at-home dinner parties and poolside shindigs, or simply curating a veiled haven that provides the ultimate reading nook, DEDON’s vast supply of exquisite outdoor offerings ensures that the act of putting together a refined exterior outdoor area will forever be an easy and approachable one.
