Solid wood furniture takes on a whole new meaning after one look at these carved Cedar Wood pieces from Riva 1920. The Italian collection calls on the talents of some well known designers to create a look and feel that you will see nowhere else. Shown here are the LOVESEAT by Jake Phipps, the Maui Chair from Terry Dwan, and the Slonghè Lounge from Pininfarina. These are ideal as an accessory for both indoor and outdoor furniture as long as direct contact with the elements does not occur. As you would expect, each has unique markings, grains, and imperfection that are part of making a special one of a kind item. See the rest of the solid wood chairs, stools, and furniture items from Riva 1920 here.
There is nothing better than creating your own private oasis and taking a break from your modern frenzied existence. The Droplet Seat has been designed to provide a refreshing refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life. We also simply love its thoughtful design thought and its unique three dimensional silhouette.Shaped like a raindrop, this one is all about connecting with nature and finding your own quite spot to de-stress. The Droplet Seat is the brainchild of design company Ontwerpers who have used fiber reinforced artificial resin as the primary material.

The inimitable Philippe Starck is showing off his design prowess at the Milan Design Week. The critically acclaimed French designer unveiled his "Magic Hole" collection which consists of an armchair, a two seater sofa and a smaller table-front armchair. The chairs are meant to be kept outdoors and the bright orange pocket aka hole is not incidental as it can hold objects like newspapers, magazines and other knick-knacks. This shock resistant and weather proof collection sure makes a dramatic statement.
Now that summers are here, chances are you are already planning some great outdoor sojourns that would guarantee laughter, good food, great wine and stumbling in the dark. Many of us are victims of poor outdoor lighting and I have lost count on how many times I dropped something on my dress all tripped because of insufficient lighting. The "Lighted Patio Umbrella" takes care of this problem beautifully as it consists of a very modish umbrella that has been equipped with a discreet LED system. Developed by Punt Mobles, the Po'light umbrella is water-proof and consists of two round tables. At least now you can actually see what hors d' oeuvres your putting in your mouth.
