As the country thaws following a particularly intense winter, those emerging from hibernation will be greeted with a number of products that help tame the great outdoors.
A new outdoor version of the Elizabeth seating collection is now available from Ligne Roset. The armchair ($2,720) and love seat ($3,910) are constructed from teak rather than black ash and are upholstered in weather-resistant fabrics. Created by the Singaporean designer Nathan Yong, each seat can be outfitted with cushions available in a wide variety of colors, allowing the owner to adapt the pieces to any space.(www.ligne-roset-usa.com)
This Milwaukee-based company recently expanded its 24-inch Signature Series Outdoor collection to include dual-zone freezer/refrigerator drawers and a dual-zone wine reserve. Perfect for outdoor kitchens, the $4,200 freezer/refrigerator features deep drawers that are large enough to accommodate oversize bottles. The $3,700 wine reserve can accommodate 32 wine bottles and, like the freezer/refrigerator, is available with solid stainless steel doors, or with stainless steel ready for the customer’s selection of a wood overlay to be installed on-site. There is also a combination refrigerator/wine reserve, priced at $3,600. (www.perlick.com)
