It’s finally May, my favorite month and the start of the sweetest stretch of the year for me. At this point in the year, I am captivated by both the freshness of Spring and the promise of beautiful Summer days to come.
These are the days when I can seriously begin to think about lounging outside, however, this amazing piece of outdoor furniture (designed by Youssef Hasbani of L’Atelier) has been on my mind ever since I laid eyes on it, way back in January at the Interior Design Show. From that day on, whenever I have pictured my dream garden there has definitely been one of these included…
It’s a large-scale sculpture of a piece of fruit, of all things! With a cosy core for adults and kids alike, is there anything else in the world so simultaneously cute and chic?
I love the thought of placing this under the shade of an old leafy tree and curling up in the cushions with a good book on a sunny afternoon.
You can also see how it’s perfectly suited for sultry summer evenings too. Surrounded by lanterns filled with candlelight and even a suspended bell jar lantern above, how can you not cuddle with your honey at twilight and enjoy?
