A closer look at these barely there chairs shows that they have a sculptural quality that complements the modern style of the garden and the poolside area. Their breezy structure is perfectly in tune with their surroundings.
See-though, ornate and tying in with the surrounding colors, this furniture sits lightly on the deck. The modest scale of the furniture is well suited to a small space.
This ring of chairs could be the perfect place for a book club gathering, a casual office meeting and so on. The placement of the furniture has purpose and enhances this woodland setting without blocking or taking away from the view. Because the furniture is lightweight and barely there, the space can accomodate a lot of people yet feels fairly open.
Scale is the trick to keeping a view open. By using low chairs and couches in this setting, the eye is drawn straight out to the expansive view, seamlessly knitting together the interior space with the landscape beyond.
This bistro set demonstrates the power of the barely there concept. The furniture adds a subtle note of playfulness without being in your face about it.
The large boulders used in this coastal landscape provide abundant seating around the fire pit while maintaining the naturalistic feel of the site. Built furniture would clutter the foreground, detracting from the rugged beauty of the place itself; this rustic seating solution blends with the surroundings.
A pillow tossed on this boulder creates a powerful invitation to sit and enjoy the garden. Remove the pillow and the seating disappears into the stone retaining wall behind it.
The color of this patio furniture blends with the color of the patio floor, creating an appealingly tranquil composition and maintaining a feeling of spaciousness in this outdoor room.
