Taking inspiration from the agrarian site and a rustic architectural vernacular this terraced hillside garden evolved in response to time and place.

where are these chairs from?

  • wayway
    Due to the small bracket at the base of the back of the chairs, they look to be foldable, and I have very similar chairs I painted a bright Caribbean blue and apple green. They are Living Accents chairs, available on Amazon and at Ace Hardware locations. They come as a kit in natural wood state, but they recommend staining or painting to protect the finish.

    This looks like Polywood's Classic Folding Adirondack chair available in a wide range of colors. This durable material will last for years without fading, unlike a painted wood version. Here's a link to see them online. I think the color shown is "Aruba".

I'm curious where that little domed screened firepit or fireplace or whatever you would call that came from?

    You can just do a google search for firepit cover or firepit screen and you will find many option. Each firepit has different dimensions, so best to search for on that you know will fit.
