Garden lounges: the right table

To create a corner lounge in our garden, you can certainly start from the choice of the coffee table, which must be light and not bulky, ideal for coffee breaks, chatting with friends, relaxing reading a book. The wrought iron tables, very suitable for afternoon tea, have sinuous and elegant lines: some of these have a marble top or decorated with majolica inlays with geometric or floral shapes, which guarantee a wonderful decorative effect. The wooden tables, often folding, are an ‘evergreen’: wood is in fact a warm and comfortable material, which always blends perfectly with green spaces, making the boundary between natural and artificial elements much thinner.

Even the white cushions remain timeless: they match any type of furniture and accentuate the brightness of the environment, while the striped ones are particularly suitable for the summer season.

Garden lounges: Tips for lighting
