Days are getting longer, temperatures are rising and the desire to live outside is more and more insistent. Spring makes us rediscover the beauty of nature and the external spaces of our houses every year; gardens and terraces awaken from the winter hibernation and return to become important spaces, to be lived until the evening. Waiting for the holidays, enhancing outdoor spaces of the houses, helps us to enjoy the relaxation even before departure: return from work and enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace, have dinner with friends in the garden or read a good book under the stars, they are small things that give us moments of genuine relaxation from everyday stress. Lights, armchairs, stools and lots of ideas for outdoor living without renouncing design, garden lighting is at home on quintessential design!
Garden lighting: furnishing with lights
Outdoor lights are the first elements to be inserted because they allow us to extend our moments outdoors until late at night and because they give the right atmosphere for every occasion: a nice lighting for dinners with friends or dimmer lights for moments of relaxation. But the lights can become furnishing elements to give the right character to our outdoor spaces. For an elegant and refined garden, the Cell collection by Karman proposes a series of floor lamps for the exterior, capable of giving a refined touch to all environments. Lamps inspired by the grace of Chinese lanterns where copper or white metallic wire shapes harmonious and light shapes around a bright heart in opaline plexiglass. Three measures proposed to meet all needs. Always Karman offers us a lamp with an ethnic flavor, made up of many white stems that recall incense sticks. Don't touch is a light from the ground that creates a relaxing atmosphere and an uncontrollable desire to touch it when the stems sway at the rhythm of the wind. An ethnic lamp that well figures even in the most elegant gardens. If your garden is more minimal, Fatboy has the right lamp for you: a classic shape that is enlarged for a large floor lamp. Edison Le Grand has a height of 90 cm and a heart of LEDs that illuminate the lamp in its entirety and that give the possibility to choose between three levels of lighting.
Garden lighting: fun lights that do not go unnoticed
Oh yes, the lights can be creative and fun because surprising and going out of fashions and trends for some is an essential need. The concept has been developed and carried on for years by the all-Italian brand Karman who has developed a collection, the Tobia, inspired by the farming world where Forcone, Badile and Rastrello are redesigned to illuminate. A decorative light that develops with the LED strips inserted into the long handles to make the surfaces shine: it is an unusual floor lamp to be placed on the wall or a tree but it can also be suspended with a hook or stand up alone with a tripod self-supporting. But if you like the fairytale world, let yourself be conquered by Ottavo, an all-white dwarf holding a torch to make the garden or terrace shine! A nice and ironic lamp that will please even the smallest and that will astonish: the classic garden gnome is transformed, it is no longer a decorative object only but illuminates with joy and style.
Accessories for the garden: relax with style
Gardens and terraces designed for relax need softness, resistant and functional materials: Fatboy creates a comfortable, resistant and decidedly large . The 280x140 cm mattress is well padded to offer comfort and softness and is supported by an internal armor to give greater stability to those who lie down for their moment of pure relaxation. Instead, for more dynamic and informal terraces or gardens, the famous The Original beanbag chair is proposed in the outdoor version to furnish outdoor spaces with color and liveliness. A removable and machine-washable bag pouf, equipped with polystyrene micro-foam padding to satisfy all body posture.
Accessories for the garden: an automatic hose reel and a lighting pot
The real and undisputed protagonists of outdoor spaces are flowers and plants. Nature gives us shapes and colors that decorate with taste and for this you need to be equipped without forgetting the aesthetic and practical side. Zee with its automatic hose reel to be installed on the Mirtoon wall, gives color with its white, black, pink or green tube and makes the time of watering practical and fast thanks to its spray gun. 10 or 30 meters of flexible hose with a coil that can rotate 180 degrees and which automatically rewinds the pipe. The materials are resistant to shocks and sun rays and the shape and color of Mirton make a common object like the hose reel beautiful and attractive. While Karman illuminates the vases that welcome the plants giving it a double function. Gervaso is a cement outdoor vase, made unique by spotlights on the base.
Garden lighting: the unique design of Artemide in the world
Artemide is one of the most innovative brands on the lighting scene and does not disappoint even in the outdoor. The Tolomeo outdoor series is a versatile collection to illuminate gardens and terraces with style. Elegant shapes created for an open-air living room, an elegance also expands to the outside and which gives undisputed sophistication with the Tolomeo Paralume: an outdoor floor lamp with a lampshade covered with Thuja fabric, a plastic material that, with the appearance of a natural jute, guarantees resistance and washability.
