Greenwich Village Townhouse Contemporary Patio, New York

"Revival” implies a retread of an old idea—not our interests at Axis Mundi. So when renovating an 1840s Greek Revival brownstone, subversion was on our minds. The landmarked exterior remains unchanged, as does the residence’s unalterable 19-foot width. Inside, however, a pristine white space forms a backdrop for art by Warhol, Basquiat and Haring, as well as intriguing furnishings drawn from the continuum of modern design—pieces by Dalí and Gaudí, Patrick Naggar and Poltrona Frau, Armani and Versace. The architectural envelope references iconic 20th-century figures and genres: Jean Prouvé-like shutters in the kitchen, an industrial-chic bronze staircase and a ground-floor screen employing cast glass salvaged from Gio Ponti’s 1950s design for Alitalia’s Fifth Avenue showroom (paired with mercury mirror and set within a bronze grid). Unable to resist a bit of our usual wit, Greek allusions appear in a dining room fireplace that reimagines classicism in a contemporary fashion and lampshades that slyly recall the drapery of Greek sculpture.

This is such cool and unique outdoor furniture. The peach and red color look spectacular together. It would be nice to have more outdoor furniture in my own home.

I love these colors together and reupholstered a beautiful 30 yr old black rattan, 6-piece set for our new lower level media room. I'm doing chairs and ottomans in this red and couches in Sunbrella Volt Silver to coordinate with carpeting. Nice pop of color!?

It's teak with a clear stain.

Anything behind fence to block the view of the wall behind it? - I notice there are gaps in the fencing. I also notice you cannot see through the fence. Did you do anything to block the view of the wall behind the fence? Thank you very much. Nice job.

Kit Pollard added this to Soft, Central, Functional: Ottomans
I love this outdoor ottoman - it's pefect for a tray of drinks or as a footrest. Plus, these colors are fantastic - so bright and summery.
Becky Harris added this to Rhymes with Orange
This orange and orange-red outdoor seating area is so festive and inviting.

DO bring color to your patio via the furniture.
Niche Interiors added this to Outdoor Lounging in Style
Modern outdoor furniture -- what a welcome change.
Kathryn added this to Nesting Tables: Function and Style
Nesting tables would be a great addition to this fun outdoor space. You could just pull them over to your individual chairs and use them to set drinks on.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Screen Outdoor Furniture From the Sun
FabricFabric is very susceptible to sun damage. Cotton and acrylic fabrics can turn almost all white in a particularly hot summer if they're not adequately protected. Fabric guards do wonders — spray or smooth one on with a paintbrush to keep cushion colors fresh through the entire summer. If you're already stuck with faded fabrics, there's no good solution. Your best bet is replacing them with a better-quality version. Sunbrella and other outdoor fabric brands resist fading, mold and stains.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Enhance Your Yard With the Right Fence Color
Try choosing a color that works with your patio's color palette. The finish of this wooden fence shares orange undertones with the patio's contemporary furniture.
Frank Organ added this to Orange in the Garden: Do You Dare?
Here orange has escaped from the interior and taken pride of place in the form of stylish outdoor seating. The color doesn’t overpower its setting and blends beautifully with the warm color of the fence. Even on the dullest of days, this garden would glow with warmth, creating the perfect atmosphere for entertaining.
Christine Tusher added this to How to Keep Your Outdoor Furniture Looking New
If your cushion covers are canvas, you can likely remove them and toss them in the washer. If you don’t have removable cushions, grab a bar of Fels-Naptha soap and apply suds using a soft bristle brush. This strategy also works well for removing tough stains like bird droppings from canvas awnings.
Julie Kim added this to How to Babyproof Your Yard
Cushion sharp corners in architecture and outdoor furniture. Babyproof your outdoor living room the same as you would your indoor living room; padded seating with rounded corners and a plush ottoman are a safe bet in both rooms.
