Where are the ottomons from? Are they available in orange?

The ottomans were from Target and they came in a leather looking vinyl. I re-upholstered them in outdoor fabric.

Hi Lina, I did this job many years ago, so I no longer have all the details. I do know that the bench was an existing wood, so the area was already cleared. No rebar was used. The backside is concrete so is the seat under the cushions. Its basically and L shaped concrete pour. Not very thick. I hope this helps.

Hi K. Its very easy. start by building a concrete bench, or can be made of wood. Then make the custom seat cushions. The blue tables are Target storage boxes that I upholstered. Be sure to use outdoor fabric for longevity! Good luck.

I'm so sorry that I don't have those details any longer. Dimensions are pretty close to regular chair height.

The lines are scored into the cement when the concrete is still wet, so hand tools can be used. Hope this helps.

I'd bet that the fabric on the cushions, bolsters and pillows are Sunbrella...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Base of Primary Colors. Keeping a simple palette allows you to have fun playing with the shape of the pillows (squares, rectangles, bolsters, etc). Primary colors plus a few punches of orange dominate this throw mix. The designer also has played with different sizes and shapes in the ottoman mix.
4. Bold rainbow. Get an eyeful of color by incorporating deep blue, sunny yellow, happy red, orange and more.
Bright colors give a space instant energy. Throw pillows provide one of the easiest ways to incorporate new color or pattern trends. Check out stores like Target or T.J.Maxx for inexpensive finds, or even peruse a local thrift store for one-of-a-kind accents. Be sure to purchase pillows upholstered in outdoor fabric.
