Top Picks for Your Dream Outdoor Patio: Style and Comfort Combined

Top Picks for Your Dream Outdoor Patio: Style and Comfort Combined - W. Atelier Singapore

Whether you’re lounging around on a lazy Sunday or restoring your calm at the end of a hectic workday, there’s little better panacea than sitting in your outdoor patio, absorbing the cross-breeze, and taking in the sights and sounds of the world around you. It centres you, even as it invigorates your spirit.

Your dream outdoor patio is a masterful melding of style and comfort. When designing your patio, it is important to consider its overall purpose and functionality. Will it be a place for quiet mornings, lively evenings of entertaining, or intimate family dinners? Knowing how you’ll use the space will guide your design choices.

Here are our top picks for furnishings for your dream patio.

Skagerak Collection

Skagerak by Fritz Hansen specialises in high-quality furniture and accessories to help you craft your dream home. Their focus on ethical and sustainable products, coupled with excellent craftsmanship and a functional ethos, ensures that their pieces stand the test of time.

Now, let’s start building the ideal outdoor patio.

As you enter the space, you are greeted by comfortable seating enough to entertain your close friends. The Skagerak Collection Virkelyst 3-seater features outdoor Oeko-Tex fabrics with indoor furniture aesthetics and comfort. The simple wooden frame is offset by thick cushions that are as soft as they look. The cushions also dry quickly after a downpour due to their state-of-the-art open-cell technology.

You walk over and put your drink down on the Skagerak Collection Virkelyst Table . Its slatted teak table top matches the Skagerak Collection Cutter Stool’s lines and shape. The minimalist design of these tables ensures the focus is on the outdoor space and your experience while providing function.

As you turn to the left, you see beautiful storage pieces that complement the greenery well. The Skagerak Collection Jut Cabinet might be at home inside, along a calm hallway, but its long round legs positioned at the outer corners and its marble countertop also make it ideal for outdoor use. The natural materials, oak or marble, seem to blend into the background, providing useful storage while maintaining the serene aesthetic. When closed, no one can see the customisable and removable shelving in the mid and right divisions, hiding your clutter in accessible distance.

You take a spare pillow from the cabinet and head over to the Skagerak Collection Pelagus Sunbed. With your drink nearby and a book in your hand, you take a nap under the shade of a palm tree growing next to the teak and Sling fabric sunbed. It is a piece engineered for complete outdoor relaxation, adjustable for lying down, reclining, or sitting. After a while, the sun gets in your eyes, but no matter. You may not be able to move a tree, but the Pelagus Sunbed’s wheels ensure you can always move to follow or avoid the sun.

As you fall asleep again, you hear vaguely the little whispers of sound as someone occupies the Skagerak Collection Riviera Lounge. The multi-functional teak lounge echoes the design and structure of the Virkelyst Table and the Cutter Stool, tying everything together. The Riviera Lounge completes the diversity of your furniture, making it interchangeable as it is for chairs, tables, sofas, or level surfaces while keeping together the overall feeling of serenity and minimalism.

Patio Perfection

If minimalism is not your style, then consider other options such as cosy country, bohemian paradise, or tropical oasis. The Skagerak Collection is versatile enough to be used in a variety of design aesthetics. Its warm wood tones and comfy cushions evoke cosy and country styles.

Its mix of materials will work well with bohemian paradise looks when coupled with macrame wall hangings, fairy lights, and dream catchers. Finally, Skagerak’s use of natural textures transports you to a paradise with lush greenery, especially when complemented with orchids and palms.

We also offer these pro tips for patio perfection:

1. Maximise your space by using space-saving pieces that hide clutter and provide seating or flat surfaces.

2. Embrace the elements that come with an outdoor entertaining space. Consider the shades - umbrellas, pergolas, retractable awnings – that provide relief from the sun or rain. If space and building regulations allow, throw in a fire pit and surround it with outdoor stools and cushions for cooler nights.

3. Lighting is essential, so invest in string lights, lanterns and strategically placed ambient lighting to cultivate a sense of whimsy and cosiness.

4. Don't forget the finishing touches! A stylish outdoor rug defines the space, while colourful throw pillows add a pop of personality. Strategically placed planters with cascading greenery soften the edges of your patio and create a sense of privacy.

The Takeaway

Your patio should be an extension of your home, reflecting your personal style and creating a space you love spending time in. By following these tips and letting your creativity flow, you can transform your patio into the perfect outdoor retreat for relaxation, entertaining, and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.
