Celebrate the sunny exuberance of the tropics with resort-inspired finds that look as effortlessly chic indoors and out—we pick out the collections to recreate that summery mood


The work of London-based designers, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, the Brea collection from German outdoor brand Dedon is a chic complement to your pool. The designers’ attention to quality and detail intends to bring indoor levels of comfort to the outdoors. With a sophisticated connecting system (from lounge chair to corner sofa, and double daybed to generous three-seater) as well as advanced cushion design (made with water-repellent fabric and slip-on/slipoff upholstery), this collection boasts maximum versatility and luxurious quality.


Decorate your outdoor space with a playful cluster of side tables, such as the Roll collection from Kettal. Designed by the Spanish architect Patricia Urquiola, the tables feature a concrete base, which is paired with an aluminium stem and a round table top in either aluminium, teak wood, or marble. A colourful array of enamel finishes add a sense of fun to its streamlined design.


Incorporate greenery into your home with the Greens collection from Maiori. This vertical garden system features powder-coated aluminium boxes for your plants and a drip watering system that allows water to flow from the top to bottom compartments. The stackable and compact planter can go up to four levels (a maximum of 2.5-metre in height), and can be easily disassembled for indoor and outdoor use.


For the design of the Quadrado outdoor collection, Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan turned to the seas, in particular, the classic teak decks used on yachts for inspiration. Produced by Italian furniture purveyor Minotti, the modular seating system comprises suspended platforms, plush seats, and wicker-effect backrests available in mud brown and liquorice black. Additional accessories such as trays and candleholders can be inserted where needed to create a space made for entertaining.


Stay comfortably cool with the Haiku fan from Big Ass Fans. Suitable for larger homes, these fans are available in diameters of 52, 60, and 84 inches, as well as indoor and outdoor variations. The coolest thing about this fan is that it features the brand’s SenseME technology, allowing for it to be controlled through remote, voice recognition, or the Haiku mobile app.


Be inspired by some of the most stunning abodes from around the world with this new design tome. The work of travel journalist Sebastiaan Bedaux, Ocean View: The Perfect Holiday Homes; Nature Retreats Vol. II is a compilation of over 50 beautifully designed holiday homes with aweinspiring views. From rustic cliffside cottages to modern pavilions, these homes are sure to induce decor envy and wanderlust.


Illuminate your terrace in style with the Angolo collection from Penta. The brainchild of the Argentinian industrial and interior designer Cristián Mohaded, these outdoor lighting pieces are comprised of a block and a diffuser ring that emits ambient light. Choose between a variety of four marble and wood bases, which are paired with a ring in a matte finish in either graphite, gold, or rose gold.


Bring that beachside vibe indoors with a colour palette that takes the cues from the sun, sand, and sea. The Carnet de Voyage collection from Etamine by Zimmer + Rohde features textiles inspired by the spirit of travel. Each fabric represents impressions and souvenirs collected during myriad journeys. Key styles include Horizont (pictured here), a linen fabric that features horizontal watercolour stripes that echo the colours of the ocean and sedimentary rocks.


At the beginning of the 18th century, the taste for Asian arts developed in France with imported porcelains and precious objects common in aristocratic interiors. Le Paradis aux Mille Fleurs is a wall covering by Pierre Frey depicting a sumptuous tree of life extracted from a plate entitled “dressins chinois” originally created by Jean-Antoine Fraisse for the Duc de Bourbon. The drawing, printed on grasscloth, is a panoramic piece sidematched for a limitless effect.; Available at Elements


Reminiscent of Parisian park chairs, this chic stackable chair from French outdoor brand Fermob will add a sense of whimsy to your terrace. Comprising hand-forged details, a perforated steel sheet seat and an anti-UV powder coating, it is made to withstand sunny days and inclement weather, making it a great accent piece anytime of year.


Add a hotel-inspired touch to your room with sleek blinds that can be easily lowered or raised, come rain or shine. Look to the Duette shades from Hunter Douglas, available in an extensive range of colours, fabrics, and opacities. These blinds feature a pleated design and is ideal for sliding doors and patios. The blinds can be applied vertically or horizontally to cover the entire length of a door or window, or used individually for each window. The motorised blinds can be controlled wirelessly via a mobile app, so that they can be adjusted when you’re away from home.; Available at Focus Global
