The outdoor living room is for summer. Gardens, terraces, canopies and outdoor angles dedicated to relax, here’s how to furnish them.

Garden, porch, canopy, terrace, courtyard – every outdoor space can turn into a living room. You need to follow only a few tips when you choose the pieces of furniture: you don’t need much but it must be multifunctional so you can optimise the space. Be aware of the materials, they must be for outdoors.

How to furnish an outdoor living room

Whatever is your style, pieces of furniture and decorations for the outdoors need to reflect that mood. If you have round shapes and a warm colour palette in your house, the first rule is to bring all of these characteristics into the outdoors as well.

To furnish an outdoor living room, being it either a small or big garden, a terrace or a porch covered with a wooden canopy, you need a few pieces with a double function. A coffee table, small and easy to place, that can also turn into a comfortable stool – just like Tao, made of outdoor lacquered metal, or Pattern, that becomes a special magazine rack.


In summer we have more free time to spend, so we can play more with furnishings and decorations. Positioning a cocktail glass, a plant or a vase with flowers on the coffee table could make the difference; also displaying a good selection of books and magazines in a magazine rack is a good idea to give personality to the environment.

But mostly, an outdoor living room requires many stackable chairs, in order to save space on the porch or garden when they are not used. Galaxy is made of plastic and recyclable glass fiber, it’s waterproof (yep, you can place it on the bottom of a swimming pool), and it’s easily stackable thanks to its geometric design that also matches the happy mood of summer. It’s available in dust blue, yellow, caramel, white, light grey and anthracite tints.


Recently, Bontempi Casa has launched Galaxy barstool, for those who have a bar counter on the terrace to prepare cocktails for friends.


If the outdoor living room has a more minimal style, with no bright colours, Ines outdoor chair  furnishes the space with a classy touch. Ines is made of outdoor lacquered metal, customisable with soft pillows. It’s available in a traditional colour palette such as sand, dark brass, anthracite and grey.


You can’t miss out on an outdoor sofa or armchair, to ensure comfort and relax to your guests. Boss is a pouf-armchair by Bontempi Casa created to guarantee a comfortable seat. It’s customisable with cushions made of vanilla, sand, chestnut, melange grey, anthracite, dust blue or navy blue cushions.
