Lounge music playing softly. Busy street noise in the background. Close friends and family gathered around the garden table or leaned back in the lounge set. You don’t have to miss out on good times in an awesome, urban atmosphere, even if the times are not for travelling or going out. You can create your own cool rooftop experience right at home.
Choose your palette wisely
A rule of thumb when you want to create an urban vibe is to mix different materials like wood, metal and concrete. With HAJSTRUP stacking chairs out of steel and polyrattan and RANGSTRUP round garden table, you have already come a long way.
In an urban setting, it is also important to restrict yourself to use only a few different colours. With flowers in a vase and candles in lanterns your patio or balcony will still have a vibrant and dynamic expression.
If you have room for it, create a dining zone and a lounging zone and separate them from each other with planters. Let yourself get comfy in the UGILT lounge sofa with the aluminium frame and the armrest in FSC labelled (FSC® N001715) hardwood.
Get shelter from the wind and curious gazes from by-passers by putting tall plants or trees in planters. Or enjoy the private space that our new take on the hammock, GJERN, creates for you. With the cave-like shape you can read your magazine or your detective novel in peace. The cushions invite you to cuddle up and enjoy the soft movements back and forth.
