Modern Mondays: Mid-Century Garden

Springtime has arrived, with a tease of summer weather.  All I want to do is lounge outside with a cold beverage-in-hand with books (or magazines) galore.  Mid-Century modern outdoor furniture has seen a surge in reproductions or like-minded designs from popular furniture design stores and pop-ups.  And there is reason for it- timeless design aesthetic with simple and effortless looking lines that complement lounging.  I am also partial to power-coated steel and wood outdoor furniture. These materials couple well with bold textile accents.  Also, the true vintage ones have beautiful aqua, pinks, and orange colors that offer the perfect pop of color to an outdoor backdrop. Now get outside.
